PERFECTLY SITUATED BUILDING LOT IN THE BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS OF SOUTHWESTERN VIRGINIA! THIS 1.75 ACRE PROPERTY ON RT 40/CHARITY HIGHWAY IS ONLY MINUTES AWAY FROM THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY NEAR ROCKY KNOB RECREATION AREA, IN THE UNINCORPORATED TOWNSHIP OF WOOLWINE VIRGINIA.
A SHORT WAY FROM THE PROPERTY, CHARITY HIGHWAY MEETS SCENIC ROUTE 8, KNOWN TO MOTORCYCLISTS AND FALL COLOR ENTHUSIASTS ALIKE FOR ITS AMAZING VIEWS. ROUTE 8 TAKES YOU RIGHT UP TO FLOYD VIRGINIA, ONE OF TWO NEARBY TOWNS (STUART IS IN THE OTHER DIRECTION). FLOYD IS HOME TO FLOYDFEST, AS WELL AS ALL THE BASIC THINGS YOU MIGHT WANT IN A SMALL TOWN; HARDWARE STORE, GROCERY STORES (INCLUDING A FOOD CO-OP/FARM TO TABLE RESTAURANT), THRIFT STORE, COFFEE SHOP, FARMER'S MARKET, AND THE FLOYD COUNTRY STORE, WHICH HOSTS REGULAR MUSICAL EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, AND IS A STOP ON VIRGINIA'S 'CROOKED ROAD HERITAGE MUSIC TRAIL'.
ABOUT A MILE DOWN THE ROAD FROM THE PROPERTY IS I.C.DEHART PARK, WHICH HAS A PICNIC PAVILION, PLAYGROUND, BALL FIELDS, AND 15 MILES OF HIKING/BIKE TRAILS THROUGH THE PEACEFUL APPALACHIAN WOODS. LEGEND HAS IT, THERE'S AN OLD MOONSHINE SETUP STILL STANDING IN THOSE WOODS, A HOLDOVER FROM THE DAYS OF PROHIBITION. THE GROUND IS LITTERED WITH CHUNKS OF QUARTZ IN THIS PART OF THE MOUNTAINS; NEARBY FAIRY STONE STATE PARK IS KNOWN FOR IT'S CROSS-SHAPED, QUARTZ 'FAIRY STONES', (AS WELL AS A BEAUTIFUL, 168 ACRE, LAKE) AND PIECES OF QUARTZ BOTH SMALL AND RELATIVELY LARGE PUSH THEIR WAY OUT OF THE SLOPING HILLSIDE OF THE PROPERTY. PHILPOTT LAKE IS ALSO CLOSE BY, ENCOMPASSING 2,900 ACRES OF GORGEOUS OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITY, SURROUNDED BY 22,000 ACRES OF PROTECTED FOREST TO EXPLORE.
THIS PROPERTY IS ESSENTIALLY RAW LAND, READY FOR YOU TO BUILD YOUR DREAM HOME, VACATION CABIN, OR HUNTING CAMP! THE SOIL IS EXTREMELY FERTILE, WITH SOME STRATEGIC TREE REMOVAL YOU COULD HAVE A REALLY GREAT GARDEN, AND A WIDE VARIETY OF LOCAL PLANTS ALREADY MAKE THEIR HOME ON THE PROPERTY, INCLUDING HARDWOODS (OLD AND NEW GROWTH), PINE, RHODODENDRON, MOUNTAIN LAUREL, CONCORD GRAPES, GOOSEBERRIES, DEWBERRIES, AND EVEN A COUPLE YUCCA. THERE IS A SMALL CABIN AT THE TOP OF THE LOT, WHICH REMAINS UNFINISHED AND IS NOT LIKELY TO BE USABLE. THE VIRGINIA STATE BUILDING CODES HAVE SINCE BEEN UPDATED TO ALLOW FOR 'TINY HOMES' (EFFECTIVE SUMMER 2021), BUT THE BUYER WOULD NEED TO DO THEIR OWN RESEARCH ON THAT. A SHORT WAY UP CHARITY HIGHWAY IS DEER RUN CAMPGROUND, WHICH OFFERS BOTH LONG AND SHORT TERM CABIN RENTALS (AND A POOL!), AND MIGHT BE A GOOD PLACE TO STAY WHILE YOUR DREAM HOME IS BUILT.
THE RV ON THE PROPERTY WAS LAST STARTED FOUR YEARS AGO, AND COULD BE USED FOR PARTS, BUT THE INSIDE WOULD BASICALLY NEED TO BE GUTTED IF YOU WANTED TO USE IT AS AN RV AGAIN. IT'S A CHEVY V8 WITH AROUND 40K MILES, NEW STARTER, A/C WORKED LAST TIME I TRIED IT AS WELL. WE BUILT A MAKE-SHIFT DRIVEWAY, BUT IT IS NOT 'OFFICIAL' AND WOULD NEED A FOUR WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE TO EVEN ATTEMPT. THERE IS A PULL-OFF WITH PARKING SPACE JUST PAST THE PROPERTY AND TO THE RIGHT WHICH COULD BE USED TEMPORARILY WHILE YOU BUILD A REAL DRIVEWAY. WE NEVER APPLIED FOR A MAILING ADDRESS FOR THE PROPERTY, BUT IT IS ELIGIBLE FOR ONE. THERE ARE WATER/SEPTIC/ELECTRIC/PIT PRIVY PERMITS ON THE BOOKS.
I OWN THE PROPERTY FREE AND CLEAR; WINNING BIDDER MUST CONTACT ME WITHIN 48 HRS TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR PAYMENT AND TRANSFER OF THE PROPERTY DEED.
