    • Recently Perced for 4 Bedroom Home
    • No Zoning or Restrictions!

    Welcome to The Homestead Tract: a 45.3 ac.+/- Bent Mountain oasis! Surrounded by National Park Service land and a gravel state-maintained road, this private & secluded tract boasts cool mountain air, springs & small creeks, large swaths of mature hardwood forest, and a circa 1920s foursquare home begging for revival. Recently opened ridge top offers potential new building site and a glimpse into the property's heyday as a substantial mountain homestead with hillside pastures & orchards. As back then, springs still flow with clear water & the forest is ready to hunt, forage & explore. New survey and 4BR perc test in Spring 2023, only 20 min. drive to town, no zoning, no restrictions, low Franklin County taxes, power on site, & well-established boundaries. This land is ready for your imagination and action!

    Atop Bent Mountain but just within the Franklin County line, this property is in a unique area where, due to distance to Franklin County schools, students living on Slings Gap Road may attend Roanoke County Schools of Back Creek Elementary, Cave Spring Middle School, and Cave Spring High. Roanoke Co. also offers trash pick-up at the county line. Already low Franklin County taxes can be further reduced by enrolling property in land use program at new owners' discretion. This land is also an ideal candidate for a conservation easement if new owner so chooses, with even more substantial potential tax benefits and continued rural land uses.

    Home conveys strictly as-is in derelict condition with no stated value. The substantial value is in the acreage and all offers must be submitted as land contracts. Timber value has not been confirmed but there are areas of impressive hardwood saw timber. Approximately 3,600 ft. state road frontage. Other than residential powerline, there are no easements, rights-of-way, or shared access on this tract. Buyer responsible for well and septic. SHOWN by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Locked cable at entry - call listing agent to schedule showing in advance.
