IRON HORSE FARM
Murphy, North Carolina
282± Deeded Acres
Iron Horse Farm is 282± acres in far western North Carolina nestled quietly in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Murphy, NC. This farm is a pastoral mountain retreat that boasts 100± acres of gently rolling grasslands, a feature not regularly found in this mountainous region. Currently, the property manages a small herd of cattle, but is used more for the owner’s equestrian interests. Just next to the main home at the neck of a hollow is a 1.5-acre clear mountain pond used regularly for refreshing summertime swims or fishing for stocked trout. Iron Horse is well improved and includes a 3,188± sq ft owner’s home, ample equestrian improvements, and a caretaker’s home among other improvements. There is a great trail system throughout the forested portions of the farm, and you are situated near lots of outdoor recreational opportunities that include Hiwassee Lake and the Ocoee and Hiwassee Rivers. Located at elevations of 1,700 to 2,000 feet, the climate is very pleasant, and the farm offers some highly sought-after seasonal weather. Considered a picturesque Appalachian Mountain town, Murphy is only 30 minutes from the property.
Iron Horse Farm is a stunning property located in a very desirable climate of western North Carolina. In the Appalachian Mountains, it is very difficult to find or cultivate lush and fertile openlands - the terrain simply doesn’t allow for much of this. However, Iron Horse has it in abundance with 100± acres of pasturelands, which significantly expands an owner’s ability to use the property for a number of different interests. Also, I love the convenient access this property offers to venues such as Hiwassee Lake and the Hiwassee River.
