This property is unique in layout, history, and because of its many special features. The nearly 40 acres of private mountain lands encompass an entire ridgeline and is its own watershed. The land fronts onto a paved county road.
The space is primed to be a perfect camp, retreat, private refuge, or estate. The majority of the acreage is registered agricultural forest lands. It includes springs that feed up to 12 ponds and two reservoirs. There are goldfish and other fish in the ponds, plus areas suited for bee hives. Ginseng, ramps, and other native plants flourish throughout the property.
Located at 0 Chandler Cove Road in Marshall, the land is the former property of the Catholic Diocese and includes the restored mission building, the Church of the Little Flower. This late 1920s, early 1930s church is accompanied by a rustic log cabin and useable log barn. The Chandler/Ramsey family cemetery also exists on the property, and the family would retain access rights and maintenance responsibility.
For an investor or developer, the acreage offers plenty of home sites, some with spectacular views. Old fire road beds exist throughout the property and would need to be reopened.
