THROUGH MEADOWS AND MOUNTAINS flow the river and creeks on this 116+/- acre tract that encompasses all the goodness of North Georgia. Convenient to town - Dahlonega - but a world away - there are fabulous flowing waters, miles of walking/riding trails, scenic timber, open meadows of rich fescue, a pond, beautiful mountain views, trout and fly fishing, wildlife, privacy, and convenience. The home on the property is a custom designed and constructed brick residence that lends itself well to use as either a permanent residence or a second home. This is a property ready to use and enjoy, for family; for generations.
Both the Nimblewill and Etowah River originate at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains on U.S. National Forest lands to the north and gather their volume and flow before spilling across the lands of this property. Some 3000+/- feet of the Nimblewill flow through the property and another 375+/- feet of the Etowah flow alongside both noisy and deep. Native trout grow to significant size in the pools that swirl and tumble, wildlife of all kinds congregates along the banks. Small springs originate on the property and form branches that flow thorough and fill the pond. Foot bridges in two locations cross the Nimblewill and give access to the fields and land on the other side.
The land offers the feel and amenities of a private Mountain Estate. Broad open meadows of rich fescue and arable soil lie along the Nimblewill. Inspiring mountain views show themselves from a rolling hilltop. Scenic timber and native foliage covers much of the land, from lacy hemlocks and fragrant white pines to pink blooming mountain laurel and rhododendron to delicate ferns. Sunlight beams into wildlife openings and into the old home places with their walnut trees; walking and riding trails meander along the forest floor and around the hills and along the meadows of the Nimblewill and to the Etowah. A Forest Stewardship Program specifically designed for this property by the Georgia Forestry Commission was created to assist the owner in enhancing and managing the natural resources .
The custom designed brick home on the property was constructed to the highest standards of efficiency and quality and is well suited as either a permanent residence or second home. Gleaming oak, ceramic, and polished woods catch your eye as you enter. The floor plan is open and inviting with a fine cook's kitchen, four bedrooms and three baths. The main level has a sunroom that overlooks the Nimblewill and in the living area there's even a soapstone wood stove highlighted by a natural stone backdrop. Below you is a full daylight terrace level and patio. Outside a generous sized shop building offers space for your projects and toys.
It is rare that all of Nature's desirable amenities and beauty are available and accessible on one property, this tract combines them all and is ready to move onto and enjoy. $1.8 million.
