Tranquil mountain property along the Kentucky River corridor within an hour of Lexington. Only a short 7-minute drive from Irvine, this versatile large tract of land has it all! From the fertile, river bottom tillable fields to the hardwood ridges and limestone cliff lines, this property provides recreational opportunities in every direction with the perfect backdrop for a dream home or cabin. The Long Branch watershed flows south to Miller’s Creek, a slow meandering stream offering a pure kayaking/canoeing/fishing experience. It meanders out to the Kentucky River about a mile downstream to the southwest as the crow flies. The hillside faces are moderately sloped but steep in some spots and are densely forested with a variety of soft and hardwood tree species such as oak, hickory, poplar, maple, walnut, and beech, just to name a few. As you climb in elevation toward the ridge tops, you encounter an intermittent band of unique limestone cliff faces, perfect for exploring with seemingly endless small cracks and crevices providing rock-dwelling creatures lots of habitat. Once at the top of the ridges, the views overlooking Miller’s Creek and the Kentucky River valley are truly something to behold. If it's running water you desire, this versatile property has almost 2 miles of flowing, blue-line streams. The property has a trail system of very old logging roads throughout most of the textured landscape to help navigate this large, soon-to-be-surveyed property. This area is known for producing giant bucks and a healthy population with the fertile river bottom crop fields nearby and rugged limestone bluffs with food plotting options everywhere. The turkey population thrives here as these big mountain gobblers keep the spring valleys at a constant rumble. This property would be perfect to settle down on and homestead with a solid farming operation if one chooses. You can’t forget yet another pass time that is unique to this area, searching for agate as the streams in this area and property are rich with them.
