Hidden Falls Meadow of Pisgah National Forest
Parcel #/ID: 8525-89-4546, 8525-88-7472
This unrestricted wonderland has the perfect blend of water, open space, woodlands, towering waterfalls, views and privacy for your luxury mountain estate or nature-focused recreation. A level roadway through a protective forest opens to the hidden meadow and continues past rolling timberlands, over Bracken Creek to the waterfall-fed stocked pond, before ending at the old homestead cabin. Relax and fish, or hike through the forest to the sound of the falling water that fills the valley. Beyond the falls, is a high elevation large natural shelf with several knolls perfectly situated to take in views of thousands of acres of the adjacent Pisgah National Forest and surrounding mountain ranges. With large level pastures, ample fresh water, and trails that extend to the national forest, this property is well suited as an equestrian estate. Properties like this with headwaters that are adjacent to National Forests can also be great options for conservation to protect your wealth and legacy.

Dozens of natural waterfalls are scattered across the property including a tall cascading fall hidden away in the secret garden of rhododendrons and hardwoods. The tranquil sound fills the valley.
A mile of boundary against tens of thousands of contiguous acres of Pisgah National Forest which stretches around this property from Nantahala to Asheville.
Streams, Creeks, and a stocked Pond. Bracken Creek has the potential to support your own small private trout and fly fishing spot. Similar surrounding creeks on forest land are designated wild trout waters.
Acres of level to rolling open pasture are perfect for horses, agriculture, and scenic enjoyment.
The old cabin holds stories of this land's history. While no longer habitable, it had electricity, spring and well, and reminds of a more simple time and life on the farm.
The upper acres of the woodlands are easy to access and have several knolls perfect for home sites that take in the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. There is also a large natural shelf with springs and creeks that could become another high pasture.
With its headwaters, streams, and adjacency to the National Forest, it has the potential for a conservation easement that could provide the new owner with tax incentives and a legacy of stewardship for future generations.
An abundance of wildlife takes advantage of the water, diverse hardwood and coniferous forests, grasslands, and transitional areas where food is plentiful and the habit supports their vitality.
Property is currently tax-deferred under present use value for forestry. Home/Cabin has no contributory value and is not habitable.
