In the center of the High Country, you will find our listing which we are calling ‘The Farm at Church Hollow.’ This generational family property is being offered for sale for the first time on the open market. The former Christmas tree and shrubbery farm feature 22.8 acres of flat and sloping land, amazing water features, existing home and barn.
A short drive off Highway 105 and beyond the Watauga River down Church Rd. in Foscoe leads you to a small valley nestled below Grandfather Mountain. The idyllic spot is filled with generational homeplaces that run deep into the ‘Hollow’ (or Hollar as pronounced by locals), seasonal homes for part-time residents and a picturesque horse farm (Grandfather Stables).
If you are not familiar with Church Hollow, it could be described as one of the hidden valleys of the High Country. Chances are you have driven by the Church Rd. entrance but never knew what lay beyond the unassuming street.
The Spice Bottom Creek runs through this property, which originates from the base of Grandfather Mountain. In the flat portions of the land lie several ponds, a spring, and two artesian wells. The abundance of water make this an option for a catch and pay trout pond, due to the continuous nature of the artesian wells and the creek.
Other agribusiness options that would suit this land could include a winery, hemp farm, Christmas tree or shrubbery business. One may even have the option of combining these ideas into one farm/event venue complex. The existing home and barn are both assets to the land and the road network from the old farm allows the entire property to be accessed easily.
Location is a big factor of this property. Blowing Rock can be accessed in <20 minutes via Hollow Mountain Road. Boone and Banner Elk are each 15~ minutes away as well. Truly a central location to all the High Country has to offer.
