If you haven't found paradise, why not create your own? There is much opportunity with this 69 acre mountain top parcel. Currently ~12 acres is cleared, the remainder in forestry (easy maintenance). Because of the land use, the bi-annual tax bill is currently $99, providing an almost tax free private haven. The parcel is zoned for one main dwelling plus an additional tenant house. There are multiple 4BR perc sites.
This property is located 2.5 miles from Route 66, Markham exit 18, and only 1 hour from DC in non-rush hour traffic. The parcel was once part of the Appalachian Trail Lands purchased by the US government to protect the view sites of the Appalachian Trail. This parcel was sold off by the Carter administration but the northern property line abuts the Appalachian Trail Lands. The actual trail is ~1.5 mile hike through the trail lands property.
The government land to the north will remain as a buffer zone protecting the Appalachian Trail. You can take our 1 acre for the house leaving the remaining 68 acres in land use.
