This great chance to own a gorgeous, mountain-forested property with so many possibilities is perfectly located only minutes north of the quiet town of Booneville. Tucked away just off KY 11, along Mayer Road is a beautiful, moderately rolling valley of hardwood forest intermixed with some open reclaimed mine land for those stunning views. This tract takes in valleys and hillsides with naturally flowing benches. It’s made up of a healthy blend of mid-sized oak/hickory hardwoods along the upper slopes and ridge tops with soft mast red maple, yellow poplar, and American beech along the lower elevations and valleys. Lush new growth from the old homestead along the creek valley provides excellent cover, habitat, and browse for wildlife along with several small ponds. The textured topography and vast space give a multitude of ideal cabin or home sites with beautiful views and privacy. With a bit of work, a network of roads throughout can provide moving throughout the property a breeze on ATVs and UTVs. Mayer Road leads through the property providing over 1 mile of county-maintained access and electricity already being available at the southwest corner of the property. This beautiful tract is ideally situated adjacent to the nearby South Fork of the Kentucky River for a weekend getaway in the mountains to hunt big bucks, turkey, or even bears. Tremendous hunting potential with the wide variety of habitats present. Perhaps you want to hike, ride ATVs or horses, camp, or explore the history embedded in these ancient Appalachian ridges and old historic homesteads? Make this property your retreat, or plant your roots here to experience what you’ve been missing. Looking for even more adventure? Head southeast along KY 28 to nearby Buckhorn Lake, which offers a whole array of additional outdoor options, or north 30 min to the Red River Gorge. If this type of relaxation and adventure sounds like what you’ve been longing for, give me a call, and let’s see if this beautiful property is right for you.
