999 Distant Ridge Rd., Sylva, North Carolina, 28779
Enjoy stunning views perched above the clouds from the highest elevation private lot in the Appalachians, with a top elevation of 6130 ft. There simply doesn't exist a private lot anywhere east of the Rockies at a higher location than the elevation of the house pad found at this property.
This south-facing ~9 acre improved building lot sits on the same ridgeline as and looks out on nearby Waterrock Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Located on Mount Lyn Lowry near the town of Balsam, the property has long-range layered mountain views of the Pisgah National Forest and Blue Ridge Mountains. Vegetation unique to high elevation forests abounds. Borders US forest land to the north and NC Conservation Trust land to the south.
Temperatures at this height are comfortable in the summer when they may be sweltering down the mountain or further south.
40 min. from Asheville to the base of the mountain, and 20 min. takes you up to the top. Located within the gated community of High Mountain.
An adjoining 15 acres including cottage is also available. See listing Distant Ridge Cottage (MLS 32109-18010).
