Broad and beautiful mountain views spreading from Dobson's Knob to Shortoff Mountain and the Linville Gorge. Build high on the peak and utilize the shape of the land to create a walk-out basement and deck facing directly at acclaimed Shortoff, Table Rock, and Hawksbill. Summer leaves make it hard to see today, but some clearing and trimming during home construction will undoubtably bring the views to you year round. There is no deeded boatslip included with this land, but ownership in The Arbor allows for you to rent a boatslip from your fellow property owners. Rent one when you want it, save money when you don't. Short term rentals are allowed.

Water and mountain views are directly in front of this property. Walk up the hill to the area where the driveway would enter the property and note the flat front yard area with plenty of room for building above road grade with a walk out basement. Turn around and see long Lake James water and mountain views through the trees across the wide, private street. A large deck and screened porches would be a perfect way to take advantage of your future back yard and beautiful view in the front. There is no boatslip included with this lot, but as a property owner in The Arbor, you are allowed to rent a slip from a neighbor. Rent one when you want one, save the money when you don't. Short term rentals are allowed.

This beautiful piece of property already has the hard work of building initially taken care, well is installed, lines for a 3 bedroom septic in place, and lot is cleared! This 3+ acre piece of land also offers incredible views right from your front door. Potential for dock slip lease or purchase. The Arbor is a lovely showcase of Lake James living where short term rentals are allowed, gathering areas are elegantly rustic, and hiking trails meander along Lake James water with mountain views. There is a dry boat and trailer storage area as well. Logical construction guidelines and a size minimum apply for the community. All of this for a comparatively modest annual HOA.

Looking for a Lake front lot that won't break the bank? Come check this one out. While you do not have your own dock slip, you have access to the community dock and have the perfect private place to launch your kayak, canoe or SUP from your lot. This lot follows a creek down to the lake with rich biodiversity, older well established trees, and access to an old logging road/hiking trail. Check out neighboring lot MLS 3824389. The two lots together would make an ideal building lot.
