RIP-ROARING – is an apt term when describing the trout waters on this 93+/- acre tract above Dahlonega - one of the most full-featured acreage properties the mountains has to offer with its blend of unique and desirable natural amenities.
Yahoola Creek - labeled “Yahoola River” on the old maps considering the volume of water it carries - travels some ½ mile along and through this property where roaring cascades tumble from deeper pools over granite outcroppings and flow alternately gently and swiftly across. A spritely little branch also flows across and there’s a partially finished pond site with piping and a dam still in place.
This property shares a boundary with lands of the U.S. National Forest for some one-half mile where the terrain rolls along with flat ridgelines and rounded hilltops, then more mountainous in places although neither rough nor rugged. Along the creek is a gentle area prime for opening into the sunlight. Pretty timber – a blend of oaks, hemlocks, and white pines underscored by the semi-gloss evergreen leaves of rhododendron and mountain laurel - forest the land.
The mountain views from this property will be tremendous. There’s acres of flat and gently sloping ridgelines and hilltops which will offer an unobscured view with a bit of tree trimming. The mountains stand tall and close-up, the main line of the southern Blue Ridge where the Appalachian Trail leaves out and heads towards Maine.
Paved County road frontage in a quiet area makes for an excellent accessibility factor. You’re only a few minutes from Dahlonega and the location is a convenient jumping off point to Atlanta and other points south. Once within the boundaries you get an immediate sense of privacy and seclusion and the property has a great “feel”, the kind of place you enjoy being. A modestly improved gravel driveway traverses all the way across to the back.
A prime and prepped building site overlooks the cascades of the Yahoola where you can both see and hear the waters. A rough old unfinished cabin currently sits above, whether you complete it or replace it there is a perfect-condition full poured-concrete basement beneath. Underground power and telephone run all the way across the property to this building site and are ready to tap in to.
For permanent residence, for recreational retreat, for event venue, for future development - the combination of usability, proximity, desirability, and scenic mountain features makes this tract a standout. $1,200,000.
