UNDER CONTRACT! 40 Acres of Recreational and Residential Land for Sale in Botetourt County VA!

Beautiful Views of the Blue Ridge Mountains – Very Private Road – Great Timber Investment

If you have been searching for a recreational property or a place with plenty of solitude in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains to build your dream home, then this property has what you are looking for. This secluded 40.36 acres located on Purgatory Mountain is just minutes from the quaint town of Buchanan, Virginia and affords numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation while providing breathtaking mountain views.

This property is part of the Roses Ridge HOA located on Blain Road, which is a private road for the HOA. Parcels located in this HOA are kept large to ensure there is plenty of privacy. There is an overhead power right away that borders the property on the south, so electric is available if you are looking to build. The property scape is varied from near level at the road to sloping in spots with a few steeper areas. The property consists of approximately 2.5 acres of hardwoods that borders Blain Road with the rest of the property containing mostly 20 year old Loblolly Pine and a few bottoms of mixed timber. Harvest some timber, build your dream home and enjoy breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge.

If you are an outdoor sportsman there is plenty of deer and turkey sign throughout the property especially in those corridors running along the power right away, the ridges, and those mixed timber bottoms. These would make perfect areas to hang a tree stand and enjoy a day chasing a mature buck in the autumn woods. Several adjacent properties are in a Quality Deer Management Programs that help improve maturity and health of the local deer herd. Bears are also very common in this part of the Blue Ridge so don’t be surprised to see a bruin passing through this part of Purgatory Mountain if you are out hunting. If you enjoy being on the water and getting a line wet, then you are just minutes away from the Springwood Boat Launch on the Upper James River. This part of the James River, from its headwaters in Botetourt County through Rockbridge County provide some of the finest freshwater fishing available in Virginia. Anglers visit from all across the country to fish the region because the Upper James River offers a wide range of angling opportunities and settings. Smallmouth bass are the dominant game species, but spotted and large mouth bass can also be caught. Other species are also plentiful in the James River, including channel catfish, flathead catfish, and various sunfish species (redbreast, bluegill, and rock bass). If you like wading cold mountain streams with a fly rod in hand then you are in luck because there are also multiple stocked trout streams that are tributaries to the James River located just minutes away. Fishing is not the only popular activity on this river. This part of the James River is also a favorite destination for kayakers, canoes, and those that like to float tubes because of the mild rapids and breathtaking views as the river winds through the Blue Ridge.

There are many other outdoor recreational opportunities to take advantage of in this area of Virginia. If you enjoy camping and hiking, the Jefferson National Forest, the Appalachian Trail and the Blue Ridge Parkway are close by. This property is also located within a 30 minute drive of the towns of Buchanan, Fincastle, Eagle Rock, and Natural Bridge and within a 45 minute drive of Roanoke, Lexington and Bedford where you can enjoy movies, concerts, sporting events, wineries, breweries, and unlimited dining opportunities.

This property located in the heart of the Blue Ridge is just waiting for you to come and enjoy all it has to offer. I would love to show you this property, so give me call and let me guide you around this beautiful mountain escape.
