Casar, Cleveland County North Carolina
When I first saw this land, I fell in love with it. I feel certain that
you will too. It has 86 acres of rolling pastures and hardwood trees
mixed throughout. There are commanding views from all positions on the
land. But none better than where currently, there is a five bedroom,
three full bath double wide with decks all around and a full covered
porch on the side facing the mountain. It is secluded and totally
private with a panoramic view of the valley and the South Mountains.
This house site sits atop a knoll that falls off on three sides. There
is a large barn on the property and a 20 X 30 shop along with other out
buildings. There is a creek that runs through the center of the property
originating in South Mountain and four springs feeding into the larger
creek. The land is fenced and cross fenced with sorting pens and load
chutes at the barn. There are three wells on the property and county
water is available on approximately 500 feet of paved road frontage.
There are two tracts that I will consider selling separately if someone
wants a smaller tract. One is 11.06 acres and has the barn and one well
along with a nice metal shed.. The other is 11.80 acres and is secluded
and totally private. It has a house site with power, well, septic, and
phone on a knoll with a very nice view of the mountain. The large creek
and one of the four springs borders this property on two sides.
South Mountain State Park is just minutes away and is the largest state
park in NC. It has hiking trails, camping, waterfall, and equestrian
campsites with LQ trailer parking with a barn and miles of horse trails.
The park also has public game lands.
This property is ideally located for commuters. There are so many
beautiful places and choices within a very short distance. NC ski slopes
are about an hour and a half drive. It is an hour to downtown Charlotte,
NC and Clt. Intl airport. It is approximately an hour to Asheville, NC
and beautiful Biltmore Estates as well as Greenville-Spartanburg, SC
If you have a love for nature and privacy, you will not want to overlook
this property! Please feel free to call or e-mail for clarification or
additional information. There are no restrictions on this property.

Mountains State Park NC
Nestled deep in the woods, South
Mountains State Park is the perfect place to enjoy nature. Here you can
see a majestic mountain range peeking out from the gently rolling
landscape of the piedmont.
The park includes elevations up to 3,000 feet, a waterfall dropping 80
feet and more than 40 miles of trails. From equestrian camping to trout
fishing, mountain biking to picnicking, a number of activities are
available at South Mountains State Park.
Visit one of the state's most rugged parks. Hike the trail to High
Shoals Falls to witness the roar of the waterfall as it pours into a
large pool. Backpack through the woodlands for primitive camping. Fish
for trout in miles of mountain streams, or bicycle along the 18-mile
South Mountains State Park is a good
winter hiking area. While the higher elevations of the Blue Ridge to the
west might be snow covered. The S. Mountains are usually a bit milder.
The highest elevation in the Park is Benn Knob at 2,894'. Chestnut Knob
South Mountains has plenty of trails for
the hiker! Also, there are a number of 'Pack in' campsites. So Back
country hikes are possible. There is a fee for camping in the Park and
Park Gates are locked at night. Check with the Ranger Station when you
arrive. The Park is quite remote.
The South Mountains, carved out of the Blue Ridge by erosion, are a
broad belt of peaks and knobs rising abruptly from a deep valley. These
steep, rugged mountains encompass 100,000 acres in Burke, Cleveland and
The Catawba Valley and the gaps across the mountain ranges to the west
were once major travel routes. The South Mountains served as a buffer
zone between the Cherokee and the Catawba Indians, and the first
European settlers in the area farmed the fertile land along the Catawba
In 1828, gold was discovered at Brindle Creek. Legend holds that gold
flakes and grains were first discovered in the mud used to seal a log
cabin. The ensuing gold rush attracted immigrants, mining companies and
slave owners. Gold was mined into the early 20th century, but activity
in the gold mines eventually declined.
Development of land in what is now South Mountains State Park began in
the 1930s when Camp Dryer, a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp, was
established at Enola. Those employed at the camp constructed forest
service roads, cleaned stream beds and built a forest observation tower.
The Lower and Upper CCC roads are still in use at the park today.
The park was established as a result of recommendations made by a
National Park Service study conducted in coordination with the state of
North Carolina. Though proposals for the park began in the 1940s, it was
not until 1974 that funds were appropriated to purchase the land. The
first land acquisition totaled 5,779 acres. Additional land has since
been added, bringing the park to its present size of 16,664 acres.
While most of the high points average approximately 2,000 feet in
elevation, Buzzard's Roost towers some 3,000 feet above the surrounding
landscape. Elevations within the park itself range from less than 1,200
feet at points along Jacob's Fork River to 3,000 feet on Buzzard's Roost
along the park's western boundary.
Water winding through the park to the Catawba River cuts deep into the
terrain, forming rugged and steep slopes. The most spectacular feature
in the park is High Shoals Falls on Jacob's Fork River. Here, a torrent
of water drops 80 feet over a cliff face of bare rock. In addition,
Chestnut Knob offers tranquility and a magnificent view of surrounding
peaks and ridges.
