Rare opportunity to develop your own private custom equestrian estate. This unusually well laying property already has several acres of developed pasture with the potential to double the current pasturage. The timber cleared for expanded pasture can be used to build your custom home and barn that reflects the refinement of your unique tastes.

There is already an excavated building site with a well and a 3-bed septic installed. Beyond this building site there are five or six other possible sites for home and/or a barn complex for stalls, training/riding arena, and contained turn-out. All building sites come with exquisite views and most have partial to complete clearing. A spring-fed-year-round creek borders the meadow pastures for a continuous supply of fresh water for the horses. Riding trails can be developed around and through this parcel for private casual riding without ever leaving your own property.

This picturesque 30-acre prize, is situated between two ridge tops, providing quiet solitude and restful privacy in your own valley. I spent two hours walking the property on my first visit and during that time, I didn’t hear a plane go over, hear any traffic noises, or hear a sound from neighbors. Serenity abounds.

Fontana Lake and the world renowned Tsali Recreation Area are no more than a five-minute drive. Tsali offers 40 miles of dedicated equestrian trails, some of the finest that Appalachia has to offer. Adjacent to the Tsali Recreational area is access to 100s of miles of Nantahala National Forest off-roads and trails for an endless array of riding opportunities.

The area offers an endless array of recreational options to entertain the non-equestrian in the family. The Nantahala Outdoor Recreation Center, just minutes away, provides white water rafting, kayaking, and canoeing. Nantahala lake offers boating and fishing. National Forest and Smoky Mountain National Park trails provide for endless miles of hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, and camping. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a short drive away and offers the most scenic views in the Eastern USA.

During the day in Cherokee, you can visit museums and the authentic historic Oconaluftee Indian Village. For night-life there is the seasonal amphitheater feature production of, “Unto These Hills”, a dramatic theater production documenting the history of the Cherokee people. To further the nighttime revelry, Cherokee is home to Harrah’s Casino that offers gaming, five-star dining, and top-of-the-chart concerts.

There are not many acreages of this size available in the area and next to non-that offer quality equestrian friendly terrain with this much unmatched solitude and privacy. For those looking to establish a family compound situated on an equestrian oasis in scenic Appalachia, this is the perfect place.
Come home to your Smoky Mountain equestrian paradise.
