This property is one of nature’s finest creations. In all its natural beauty, this remote tract of mountain land is geared toward the outdoor enthusiast, a not for the faint of heart! Located on Penley Road, off Sampson Road - not far from the Blue Ridge Parkway at Aho Gap, this secluded, unspoiled mountain tract offers long-range views from the ridges, a mature forest, abundant wildlife, several springs and a very nice bold mountain stream.
Anyone interested in this tract, must understand that there is no clear legal determination as to the right to use Penley Road to access this property. There is evidence that Penley Road was once a State-maintained road per notes found in a file at the Department of Transportation office in Watauga County. However, the State formally abandoned Penley Road years ago, and it is presumed that existing road reverted back to the care of the private landowners. Prospective buyers are advised to consult their attorney regarding the legal use of Penley Road for the purpose of accessing this property.
This parcel boasts 3,200'+ elevations and great diverse topography ranging from wooded bottomlands to many hollows, ridges and rocky outcroppings at the higher elevations making this an ideal location to create the perfect family retreat or hunting and outdoor paradise.
