For Sale

Fisherman's paradise!! Over the creek and through the woods to a great mountain get-a-way! This newly updated, quaint, 1890’s farmhouse is located on 2.8 acres with Helton Creek frontage. Jerd Branch stream runs through the property right into Helton Creek. This trout stream has some of the best trout fishing in NW N.C. where over 26,000 catchable size trout are stocked into the creek every year in the delayed harvest program. This makes the Helton Creek area known to anglers as The Jewel of Ashe County. Approximately 400 heated sq feet upstairs is just below 7 feet. However, it is great useable space and counted on a recent appraisal. The kitchen and mudroom in this home were updated in 2023, along with many other recent updates, including two mini splits, and deck and steps leading to the kitchen entrance. Nice screened in porch to enjoy the outdoors or to enlarge your entertaining space. Speaking of entertaining, the 49X36 barn is the perfect place to hold a huge family gathering. Yes, a large portion of the barn has concrete floors and electricity, or use this large barn for your equipment, workspace, or just storage for your ATV's and kayaks. There is a nice level space on Helton Creek to set up a campsite to have the true outdoors experience. Lots of opportunity awaits you at this charming mountain get-a-way. Sellers also have a small orchard planted, the trees with pink ribbons will be removed before closing. Come back to nature and grow your own vegetables, lots of space for a garden. Sellers are open to selling the furnishings. Septic was recently installed and is for a 2 BR., but the home is set up as a three bedroom home. The house is not located in the flood plain, therefore flood insurance is not required.
