Beautiful view

The house sets on the highest site of the property overlooking the valley of West Fork, with a breath-taking view. The acreage includes 40 acres of forest; ~10 acres of pasture which already has a very well built fence for cattle and a perennial pond located inside of the fence line, and ~10 acres of fairly flat ground where the house is located.

Fantastic water sources and good septic system

The house has rural water. There is also a well with a functional water pump in it and which is the best on the mountain. The house can be completely independent of the rural water system. .

There is another pond located near the house, which was built over a very good spring. There are several springs located within the property which are running during most of the year. The two ponds located within the property are constantly filled with water and have fish in them.

Agricultural land

The ground is very fertile for gardening and farming. There has been a garden near the house. There is about 12 acres of cleared fenced in pasture land.


45 acres of forest with a variety of trees and wild life.

Spacious, well equipped outbuildings with great potential for work, living quarters, and raising  chickens.

There is a concrete pad that is located behind the well house, this concrete pad was once used to hosts a travel trailer. There is electricity available to the site. There is also a storm seller and a storage building next to the concrete pad. There are two outbuildings near the house. They are very well built and with plenty of space for any kind of activity or shop. They have electricity. The main outbuilding, which is the biggest one had electricity, water, restroom, a gas heater, and ventilation fan on the ceiling. There is also a good size chicken house for family use.

Wind Energy that creates cool weather in summer with potential for income and power.

Due to the altitude of the property, there is almost always a fresh wind flowing, and since the house has plenty of windows, and it is facing to the North, the temperatures are quite pleasant during the Summer time, to the point that there is no need for the use of air conditioning units. The temperatures range around 5 degrees lower than in the Fayetteville and West Fork areas all the time. Due to the almost constant flow of wind, there is the great possibility of using a wind mill to provide electricity to the property, hence becoming independent from the rural electric system and also it could generate enough electricity to sell back to the electric company and make an ongoing profit from it.

Fire place and gas heaters

The house has two gas heaters, and a propane gas tank which is full at the present time. The heaters, together with the fire place, make it easy to maintain the house warm during the winter. There is also plenty of wood for the fireplace in the property, especially since the last ice storm.

Completely fenced

The complete property is surrounded by a fence line of barb wire.

Food Sources

Wild life is very abundant in the property, including deer, squirrel, opossum, fox, raccoon, and birds of many kinds, occasional black bears, and other local animal. The ponds have fish in them. There is a garden spot near the house and about 12 acres of fenced pasture land that would be great for farming or grazing animals.

A well built, spacious house with lots of potential

The house was built in the 80’s and it has a lot of nice wood work on entrance and the ceilings of most of the house. There are two full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. One master bedroom with walk-in closet, two additional room downstairs, and one big bedroom up stairs on the loft, with a  big window overlooking the back yard.  The house has metal roofing and vinyl siding which are a few years old and in excellent condition. The kitchen is rather small but has lots of cabinet space  with a good size refrigerator and electric stove. The adjoining dining room could be adapted to easily enlarge the kitchen. THere is a spacious living room with fire place, an extra large laundry room. There is plenty of storage space in the two attics and the upstairs closets, and other closets in the main restroom, bedrooms, and under the stairs.

The house has two big electric water heaters which were installed less than one year ago, and are in excellent condition.

The house needs  minor cosmetic repairs inside,  but it is very comfortable,  functional and ready to live in. It would be ideal for handy people who enjoy doing small repairs. Some flooring work needs to be done in some of the rooms where the old carpet has been removed. Most of the floor is concrete and tile, except for the upstairs floor which is wood.

Great for kids and socializing

There is a very nice size sand pile behind the house which is a wonderful treat for children. There is a concrete pad attached to one side of the back of the house that was going to be an additional room, but it can also be used as a patio for a grill or a trampoline, or anything else enjoyable. Several of the trees surrounding the house are perfect for hanging swings for the children. There are mature as well as young trees surrounding the house.

Road throughout the property

You can drive all over the property including through the forested area because there were logging roads built back in the day.

And to top it off–a root cellar/ storm cellar.

I knowafter these great features, it is hard to believe that in the event of a tornado or bad storm–you can find a safe place–and you can store all all the great food your grow:)

An efficient septic system

The house has a very well designed septic system consisting of two different underground tanks that are connected which makes the system more efficient.
Come take a look!

 This is some of the most beautiful as well as practical land I have seen–and I have visited many communities and country places in my life time. Please call or email  me if you are interested.
