97 AC. SECLUDED FARM-PLENTY PASTURE AND WATER
97 ACRE SECLUDED FARM - GREENBRIER COUNTY, WV
* MINERALS INCLUDED *
This beautiful, secluded farm is ready to become your homesteading, investment or recreational paradise. Roads and utilities are already in place, and a well built cabin has been started to serve as a camp or temporary housing while building your dream home.
The old house site is the perfect setting for a home with electric, water (well) and phone already installed. The property has excellent access from a small paved lane, down a driveway shared with one neighbor. The shared part of the driveway runs through the woods on a ridge above the property and in no way compromises the privacy of the building site below or the farm as a whole. The roads are in very good condition.
The land consists of varied and interesting terrain from open fields to deep woods with rhododendrons, mt. laurels and ferns. There are approximately 20 open acres, 5 tillable, the remainder, pasture. Throughout the property are seasonal streams that run boldly in the spring.
Along with the utilities at the house site, there is an ever-flowing spring with springhouse, old corncrib with electricity and water hydrant, and a rehabilitated barn. A very accessible lane winds it's way to the back field. The farm has been lovingly cared for over the years. This is not an abandoned property.
It's position at the base of Cold Knob Mountain has provided for beautiful, rich soil deposits, unusual for a mountain farm. The property is believed to be the site of a civil war skirmish, "the sinking creek raid". The terrain is level to rolling with some steep woodlands. 13 acres of woods were select cut in 1996 and are growing nicely along with the remaining timber. Mineral rights are included and they have not been leased, although an offer was made by parties interested in the Marcellus Shale gas. Properties which include mineral rights are becoming rare these days. Most owners are retaining the mineral rights or leasing them before the sale of the property. There are no right of ways through the farm other than the shared driveway, electric and phone lines. It is extremely private.
There is an existing survey that can be seen at the website listed below. The taxes for the entire year of 2012 were $249.54.
