Stunning 150 Acre Mountain Farm
Incredible mountain grazing farm overlooking the scenic, sought after, Blue Grass Valley. This generational Hightown farm is home to the native headwaters of both the Jackson and Potomac Rivers. There are seven springs coursing through the meadows. Breathtaking views from any spot on the property. Over half the farm consists of open grazing and hay meadows with the balance in mature mixed timber and quality sugar maple orchards. There are 30 additional timbered acres on the north side of Rte. 250, rising to over 3,800 feet in elevation. The meadows and pastures are moderate and provide endless opportunities for a grazing farm, syrup production, or stunning mountain getaway. There is a large farmhouse, log barn, and several outbuildings that could be restored or taken down. The farmhouse has at its core- a chestnut 26x16 log pen- preserved under the clapboards. Red spruce, chestnut and oak lumber and massive cut limestone foundation rock, are just some of the vintage materials that could be repurposed. Heirloom apple trees dot the farm, just waiting to be re-pruned. The perimeter is fenced and the farm is currently being rented for livestock grazing. The views are unequaled on this incredible parcel.
