***NOW WITH ADDITIONAL CLEARED AND OPEN ACREAGE!!!*** FALLS OF THE SYRUP MILL is located on this very scenic North Georgia 104+/- acre parcel and Syrup Mill Creek flows through the property. Located very convenient to town - only 5 minutes away - but the property is very private and protected and the surrounding area is very appealing, rural, and upscale.
Dahlonega's old historic "Hand Ditch" from the mid 1800's that transferred water from the mountains above Dahlonega to the old Consolidated Gold Mine goes across this property and is still visible if you know what to look for. Big timber sprinkles the high ridgelines and flat terrain meanders along the top for quite a distance. Along Syrup Mill Creek is flat and cleared terrain ideal for pasture or a park/recreation setting with the creek flowing through the middle. Two other little branches flow into this area from the sides and you can see where the old homesteader's place was. Additional cleared acreage now gives an open feeling to the property and is ideal for pasture or grasslands; a little unfinished cabin sits off to one side.
Up near a different former homesite are several open acres of gentle rolling and terraced terrain; ideal for pasture, homesite, crops or garden, events, or simply to view the scenic surroundings. Numerous springs form and flow across the property and feed into Syrup Mill Creek. A long boundary with the U.S. National Forest on the western side of the property helps preserve the integrity and privacy of this tract. Native North Georgia trout waters - Yahoola Creek - is a 1/4 mile walk away through the woods on the U.S. National Forest lands. The tract offers paved County road frontage; power and telephone are at the property.
The scenic amenities of the property easily qualify it for one of Dahlonega's event or wedding venues, or certainly an extension of the winery theme (Wolf Mountain Vineyards is just down the road); or perhaps an organic farm of some type. Or as a private residential property or weekend retreat this tract would be superb. And at $7,200/acre the property represents a very good buy in a top notch acreage tract.
