YES, THIS ONE SOLD BUT DON’T GIVE UP! WE HAVE MORE GREAT DEALS HERE
Cheap Land in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina
About 4500+ feet towards the sky and at the edge of America’s most visited national park — Smoky Mountains National Park — lies this vacant slice of the Blue Ridge mountains. Ascend just a little farther up the mountain, only two-and-a-half miles away, to go skiing at one of America’s southernmost ski resorts — Cataloochee Ski Resort — or descend just 3 miles to the mountain resort town of Maggie Valley for some family fun and great local dining.
- Surrounded by Smoky Mountain adventure
- Ski Resort only two-and-a-half miles away
- Pre-existing Driveway Access
- Amazing Views!
- Priced about 35% Below Market
- Power & Water Available
PROPERTY: This 1.09 acre lot is wooded with a paved driveway that allows access to Scenic View Drive, a winding mountain road that fronts this property for about 946 feet and switches back around its southern tip to give this property its triangular shape. The driveway is a deeded easement that was granted to the neighbor many years ago so it may be used by by either landowner. There are no buildings on site but power and water does run along the road frontage so it’s ready for your development. Despite being part of a landowners association (Smokey Shadows Estates), annual dues are extremely low (only $100 for road maintenance) and the property comes with just one restriction (no mobile homes). While the property is sloped overall, it does offer a flatter pad site within it to build your dream mountain retreat, much like the neighbors have done along the same road. This is a beautiful, peaceful, high end neighborhood and you can become a part of it at a discount price. When you’re ready for natural adventure, the Cataloochee Ski Resort is right up the road but your options here, on the edge of Smoky Mountain National Park, are nearly limitless. The closest hike is probably Waterrock Knob (from Soco Gap) just 12 minutes away through the resort town of Maggie Valley, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when you’re looking for outdoor fun. For water lovers, the scenic Lake Junaluska is only 20 minutes away in Waynesville, a large town that offers a Walmart and other major retail. Live here and enjoy the serenity and beauty of the mountains without sacrificing the conveniences of the city.

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.
OWNER FINANCING: We do not offer owner-financing but you could get a loan through a bank or another lender and we’d be happy to coordinate with them.
OUTSIDE FINANCING: Land loans typically require about 15-25% down. At this price level though (under $20K), your best and easiest option may be to acquire a personal loan from your bank, using collateral like your car or home.
WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why we price our properties at below market value, and the answer is really simple: because we can, and that’s our core business model. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and deeply liquidated rates, and by passing this discount on to our buyers, we can sell land quickly . . . and more of it! In fact, our average property only lasts 2-3 weeks on the market (vs. industry average of about 6 months).
DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
