3BR / 2Ba 1300ft2

manufactured

39 acre hunting getaway or prepper's delight, located in the heart of beautiful West Virginia.

VERY private and secluded, but 3-4 miles from small town (pop. about 500) that has a grocery store, NAPA store, feed/hardware store, gas station, grade school, library and post office.

The property has three separate lots (taxes totaled under $400 for all 3 lots this year - NOT an association) with 4,000 foot long exclusive right of way. 3 small streams. Walnut and various fruit trees, several large berry patches scattered throughout property. Well (actually, 2 - 1 drilled, 1 old hand-dug), electric, house, and a house-trailer hunting camp. Property and surrounding area are over run with turkey, deer, bear and other game. Select-cut 16 years ago, leaving awesome 4 wheeler/dirt bike trails. This is an old family farm with many potential cabin/building sites, some with a great view to the horizon, both south and North facing lots. 2 small fields, rest is wooded.
House needs work (but is still lived in by the owner and is repairable), has 4-year-old coated-metal roof. Property is being sold as-is, including running 3 cyl diesel 4WD tractor with a few attachments to help maintain the property and 2 nearly-new mini bikes to ride the trails.

The property is a hunter's dream - it has all of the local game, and hasn't been hunted in over seven years. Bear, deer and turkey are seen on a regular basis. We also had a sow come out of hibernation early in the spring after Hurricane Sandy dumped 44 inches of snow on our county a month before normal hibernation season began... she had 3 cubs, but ended up leaving 2 behind in our yard - 1 was dead when we found it, and we got pictures of the second one before taking it to the DNR to be rehabilitated.

Property backs up to @ 15,000 acre coal-company property (which you can access with 4-wheelers, snowmobiles, or horses). Located 2 mi from Big Ditch Lake & Wildlife Management Area with bow-hunting and good fishing. Minutes away from Monongahela National Forest. Within 20-30 minutes of 5 different rivers (Birch, Gauley, Williams, Elk, and Cherry), all good fishing. Approx. 35 mi to both Summersville and Sutton Dam/Lakes, about 1 hour from scenic Highway, New River Gorge recreation area and Hawk's Nest State Park.

Property needs work, but has LOTS of potential! Many more pictures and details available, willing to consider reasonable offers.
