PRICED TO SELL! Located only minutes northeast of the small town of Barbourville and deeply embedded into the notorious Elk Zone, is a tremendous chance to own a vast, mountain-forested property at an unbelievable price. Tucked away just off KY 11 and taking in the entire Shop Branch watershed is this beautiful valley of mixed hardwood forest and lush new growth, providing that quiet privacy that everyone is searching for. This tract takes in vast hillsides, natural benches, cresting ridges, and low saddles. This property is made up of a natural mix of oak/hickory hardwoods along the north and eastern portions with soft mast red maple, yellow poplar, and American beech along the lower elevations and slopes. Lush new growth throughout the southcentral area makes up approximately 180 acres that were recently clear cut within the last couple of years. This clear-cut area provides excellent wildlife benefit by dramatically improving cover and browse to the thriving resident deer, turkey, and bear population. The textured topography and vast space provide a multitude of ideal cabin sites with beautiful views and privacy, especially in the upper elevations. A rough network of roads, with a little work, can provide moving throughout the property a breeze on ATVs and UTVs. Utility access from the west less than 1000 feet away. This property is ideally suited for a weekend getaway in the mountains to hunt big mountain bucks, turkey, bear or even bull elk if lucky enough to draw. Perhaps you just want to hike, ride ATVs or horses, camp, or explore the history that resides in these ancient Appalachian ridges. Make this property your personal retreat or investment. If this type of relaxation and adventure sounds like what you’ve been missing, give me a call, and let’s see if this beautiful property is right for you.
