Brushy Mountain Land for Sale in Wilkes County!

This Brushy Mountain land for sale in Wilkes County is located only 11 miles from Wilkesboro, and convenient to Hickory & Statesville. This location is very convenient, making for easy access to US Highway 421 – a major artery for anyone visiting the High Country in the North Carolina Mountains. With frontage on state-maintained Bethany Church Road, there are several access points into the property.


It is also very convenient to many outdoor recreation areas such as 12,000/acre Stone Mountain State Park offering hiking, horseback riding, trout fishing, etc. The popular high country towns of Boone and Blowing Rock are less than an hour away. 


This parcel has another popular benefit – a moderate climate. Unlike the High Country at elevations over 3,000’ with bitter cold and biting wind in the wintertime, this Brushy Mountain land for sale in Wilkes County is just over 2,000’ in places. That means July mornings in the low-mid-60’s, perfect for early morning coffee on the deck.

There are springs and streams in different areas of the property, including a long, cascading waterfall. An old hunting cabin is just steps away from the waterfall, providing a possible “getaway” from the daily grind. There’s even a small pond, which provides a great habitat for local critters and waterfowl – including the abundant deer and wild turkey you’ll find on this Brushy Mountain land for sale in Wilkes County.

Like to hunt and ride ATV’s? Oh my! The trails on this property will provide you with hours of trail-riding recreation.   There are miles of trails on the property in addition to many other smaller logging roads and trails suitable for ATV or horseback riding. One of those trails, with old rock walls along it, shows evidence that it was once a local “highway”.

With elevations of over 1,900′, this Brushy Mountain land for sale in Wilkes County combines the perfect blend of ridges with excellent view possibilities, hollows, beautiful gently sloping areas, and meadows that are perfect for anyone’s dream home. Long-range views are possible on any of a number of high ridges found on the property. This property has something for everyone. Nature enthusiasts will enjoy the diverse flora and fauna. For those looking to relax and enjoy a peaceful setting with an easy drive from populated places like the Lake Norman area, they’ll find this property to be just perfect.

Finally, there’s a great bonus with this parcel – a large two-story home – about 75% complete – but never occupied. A peak through the door shows the extensive use of finished wood inside.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect place to create a large family retreat, a hunting paradise, an equestrian community, or a subdivision of fine homes, this property is sure to catch your attention! Contact Listing Agent, Paul Breden at 828-263-2340, or email Paul Breden  Don’t miss an opportunity to learn more about this great property. Shown by appointment only.

North Carolina Mountain Land – How we show land


Regardless of how much you enjoy the outdoors, you may not be into strenuous hiking.  That’s why we show most properties from the comfort and convenience of our Polaris Ranger.  The Ranger rides like a golf cart – on steroids – and goes anywhere. It has a comfortable bench seat, and we can handle as many as two adults up front, plus three full-grown teens in the back.  On most properties very little hiking is required.   Why, you ask?


The North Carolina mountains are well-known for growing some of the best hardwood trees in the U.S. That is why the furniture industry got its start here in the North Carolina mountains.  With annual rainfall of 50”, the climate is perfect for growing Red Oak, White Oak,  Maple, Poplar, Eastern White Pine, and many other popular species.  


As a result of generations of timber harvesting, many logging roads are left behind.  These are the trails created by loggers to remove the timber during its last cutting.  The logging trails leave behind fantastic hiking and ATV trails, so our Ranger can access almost all properties on the Ranger.  If you prefer hiking, we can do that also, however the Ranger provides a more enjoyable, less strenuous method of seeing our properties.


If you are seriously committed to buying NC mountain land, take the easy route by choosing a broker who not only has 49 years selling North Carolina mountain land.  But wait!  There’s more. Choose a land broker who believes in land, as evidenced by his personal ownership of Ghost Valley, his own 386 acre homeplace.
