For the first time ever, 6,500 acres of Appalachian terrain in northwestern North Carolina has hit the market for a whopping $97.5 million.
The unspoiled land rarely found outside a state park is known as Falling Waters, due to its five waterfalls.
One of the largest waterfalls is 180 feet long.
Additionally, there are 20-plus miles of trout-filled streams, several lakes and 50 miles of trails for horseback riding, the listing notes.
Features also include panoramic views of the Blue Ride Mountains.
The offering is situated 15 to 20 minutes from the town of Boone, North Carolina.
Pegged as a “once-in-a-generation legacy property,” it has a rich heritage dating back to Daniel Boone — the American pioneer whose exploits made him one of the first folk heroes of the United States. He became famous for his exploration and settlement of Kentucky, which was then beyond the western borders of the Thirteen Colonies.
Gretchen Coley with The Coley Group at Compass holds the listing in collaboration with the Live Jackson Hole Legacy Properties team.
“Falling Waters is the last large acreage tract in western North Carolina and provides unrivaled seclusion in part due to a perimeter protected by natural geography,” Coley told The Post.
The spread has been meticulously maintained and perennially considered as a potential state park.
Improvements to the land include two dwellings, three structures for agriculture equipment and an off-grid cabin. The cabin holds four bedrooms and one bath, and occupies over 2,100 square feet.
Roads and paths have also been added for easy access throughout the property.
“The pristine topography of Falling Waters is truly inspiring,” Coley added. “From the rolling hills and meadows, to the lakes and waterfalls, it’s easy to see the distinct possibilities for this unparalleled offering.”
