This 1.9 Acre property is located in the private Firefly Mountain subdivision in Hot Springs, NC in Madison County.
This dramatic and private lot is perfect for someone looking to own a slice of North Carolina beauty. This hilly, heavily forested lot is tucked away from the noise and lights of the big city, but still close to modern conveniences. If you're looking for a private retreat in the Appalachian Mountains, this is your spot!
About The Lot
Access to this property is up a winding road through the mountains up towards Firefly Mountain. This densely forested area sits at the base of the mountain and is located at the fork in the road. There is about 10 feet of level ground in between the road and the property line. The property line is lined with mature trees and slopes down dramatically towards the interior of the property. While you can walk through the property, there are many large trees and pockets of bushes to work through. The ground is rocky and covered in fallen leaves, sticks, medium-size branches, and grass. There are a few fallen trees on the lot that will probably have to be cleared before building. Most of the lot consists of a very steep slope, and it only evens out towards the very bottom.
There is a road that runs directly in front of the property, up a hill, and to a nearby neighbor. There are a few residential neighbors around the lot, but this space is private and tucked away from other homes.
About Madison County, North Carolina
Madison County is located deep in the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina and covers just over 451 square miles. Here you'll find the French Broad River and acres and acres of heavily forested and sparsely populated land. Madison County is home to a little under 20,000 people, and some of the most popular communities within the county are Hot Springs, Mars Hill, and Marshall. Madison County is a popular place for fishing, hiking, exploring, and outdoor recreational activities. It is here that you'll find this 1.97-acre lot for sale.
Madison County Natural Beauty
Madison County's northern border is shared with the Tennessee state border, and it sees four very distinct and beautiful seasons. In the winter, locals head 45 minutes west to ski and sled and go tubing at Wolf Ridge Ski Resort or head south towards Asheville to experience the beauty of Black Mountain. In the warmer months, fishing is popular in the French Broad River and streams running off from this river flow just minutes from this lot. Since this property is at the base of Firefly Mountain and right next to the Rich Laurel Wildlife Area, owning this property would mean being minutes from hiking trails, campsites, and easy access to the Appalachian Mountains. There are hundreds of hiking trails nearby, along with public parks and playgrounds. This is where you go to connect with nature and enjoy the outdoors.
Madison County Comforts and Conveniences
If you follow the winding mountain paths from the lot down to US-25, you can get to local coffee shops and stores in the nearby town of Marshall. From this lot, you're ten minutes from local markets and grocery stores, diners, cafes, local restaurants, and just over a half-hour to the closest Walmart, which is in Weaverville. Locals send their kids to Hot Springs Elementary, Madison Middle, and Marshall High School. For movie theatres, live music, bowling alleys, and other entertainment venues, you can head about an hour south toward Asheville. People love living in Madison County because it is naturally beautiful, but also convenient to everyday amenities.
