Arrowhead at Sunset Falls
127 Acres near Waynesville, NC
This is a large 127-acre tract located in the beautiful farming community of Upper Crabtree in Haywood County NC. It is situated at approximately 3,500-4,300 feet in elevation, with incredible long-range mountain views. Gorgeous large-trunk hardwood species thrive throughout the property. This one-of-a-kind parcel can be combined with another 140 acres of mountaintop bald that abuts this tract (priced separately at $1,361,000). The two tracts can provide 267 acres of an incredible private family estate for the discriminating buyer.
The Land |
Pristine and untouched, save for some old logging trails that meander throughout its acreage, this exceptional tract of Western North Carolina woodlands offers stately hardwood species of significant size and variety; spectacular, long-range, layered mountain views of numerous peaks above 6,000 feet in elevation and the ridgelines that connect those peaks; and finally, a ready-made system of pre-established hiking and mountain biking trails that run throughout the acreage. The hardwoods include Red Oak, White Oak, Poplar, Black Walnut, Cherry, Red Maple, Sugar Maple, Locust and other species. The vast majority of its topography is oriented to the west, southwest and south, offering gorgeous views of the sunset each evening and excellent opportunities to take advantage of passive solar gain and solar energy benefits in the design of one’s dream home here.
The Location | Arrowhead is situated in the quaint, rural farming community of Upper Crabtree, known for its cornfields, tobacco barns, hay bales and silos. It is also just 6.8 miles from I-40, 20 minutes from downtown Waynesville and 35 minutes from downtown Asheville. It is perhaps the perfect combination of feeling that one is in the middle of nowhere while still being close to everywhere and everything that you need or want. An endless array of outdoor sports and recreation is within minutes of Arrowhead: three semi-private golf courses, tennis and equestrian facilities; skiing, snowboarding and tubing at Cataloochee; fly-fishing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking and mountain biking; the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail, the Smoky Mountain National Park and The Cataloochee Elk Preserve are all within minutes of the property. Arrowhead is truly in the geographic center of all that there is to do in Western North Carolina.
The Opportunity |
It should be noted that there is an additional, abutting 140-acre tract of land, The James Tract, which is perhaps the most beautiful mountaintop pasture remaining in Haywood County. That is saying a lot, considering Haywood County has the highest average elevation of any county east of the Mississippi River and has more mountain peaks higher than 6,000 feet as well. The views from this tract (two abutting parcels of 60 acres and 80 acres), which sits immediately south of Arrowhead, offer 360-degrees of panoramic splendor, capturing the beauty of these peaks and the layered ridgelines between them. Ranging from approximately 4,200 to 4,400 feet in elevation, the property also has a number of springs that flow year round, creating clean and high-elevation streams that enhance the natural setting.
The James Tract may be purchased separately from Arrowhead. There is no requirement to purchase both; however their distinctively different terrain, one predominately rolling pastureland with springs and the other heavily forested with existing hiking trails, creates the potential for a truly unique private family estate.
Finally, the access route to both Arrowhead and the James Tract is through a beautiful, low density new residential community, Sunset Falls at Bald Creek. An eighteen-foot wide, paved access road, including three-phase power, phone and DSL is already in-place that runs from 3,200 feet in elevation at the entrance to the community all the way to the entrance to Arrowhead near the top of the mountain. The entrance to Sunset Falls is also gated and secured. The developer of Sunset Falls at Bald Creek is happy to work with the buyer regarding access to Arrowhead and the James Tract and assist the buyer with the needs they may have for architecture and planning, infrastructure construction, general contracting, etc., to realize their dream of a private estate and family compound.
