Grandfather Mountain is home to the mile high swinging bridge, abundant wildlife and incredible hiking trails. Though many do not know about a small community which lies on the mountain accessible from Foscoe, called Spice Branch at Grandfather. Besides a few homes visible through the trees it is essentially off the map.
The community is completely surrounded by land that comprises Grandfather Mountain State Park and also National Forest Service land in conjunction with the Blue Ridge parkway. Access to the community is through a gate at the end of a small road in Foscoe. Upon the gated entry you are lead on a journey up about 1,000 feet in elevation by paved roads. In the winter, long range views through the trees are majestic and make for an incredible entrance.
Where the pavement ends at around 4,000 feet in elevation, a fork in the road begins to go further into the development. Our listing for sale is on Spice Apple Way. A rare stretch of flat land with several cabins and a gravel road leads you to the end of a cul-de-sac where our listing exists. A prime one acre lot which has seasonal but potential year round long range views through the trees.
If privacy and nature are of interest, this lot backs up to Grandfather Mountain State Park and an adjacent twelve acre lot. With other homes in the neighborhood ranging from $300,000 to over $1 million, the value of this lot is incredible. The lot also features shared well access, a prior 3 bedroom septic permit and plat map.
Community is also a great element of this property. Neighbors have a quarterly newsletter, annual meetings and have a neighborhood hiking network on their private properties. Location is in the center of the High Country. Traveling to Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, the Blue Ridge Parkway, skiing, hiking, golfing and more are all within a short drive.
