44AC Banks Road, Ellijay, GA 30540 - For Sale

As you enter this property you feel like you’re stepping back in time. This ~44 AC of truly magnificent untouched mountain landscape has over ~1400 feet of frontage on the cascading waters of Tails Creek, massive moss-covered rock formations, and towering hardwood trees.

There are several natural springs that feed an additional ~2500-foot-long stream that meanders through the property before emptying into Tails Creek. Which could be used to create ponds for little fishing holes the whole family can enjoy. Tails Creek is a registered trout stream. Other wildlife includes deer, wild turkeys, black bears, and numerous bird species.

A ~1500-foot road has been cleared and graveled which leads you through the property to an old home site with an almost surreal, picturesque, park-like setting overlooking Tails Creek. Other old logging roads could be used to make the rest of the land more accessible. There are countless amazing home sites allowing you to build your forever home, several homes for a family compound, or small neighborhood or RV park.

The terrain is made up of a mixture of flat land, rolling hills, and some steeper knolls. Build 50′ from the beautifully noisy Tails Creek, or in some of the valleys deep in the forest, or up higher on ridge lines which with some clearing could provide some breath-taking long-distance mountain views. Hang up a hammock and camp, or pull in and park your RV, relax and unwind.

If exploring your own land isn’t enough to entertain you and your guests, less than a mile away is Jake’s Landing. A nice rustic mountain community and public park that includes Jake’s Landing Waterfall, the Coosawattee River, Tumbling Water’s hiking trail to other waterfalls, Ridgeway Mountain Bike Trails, and a boat ramp where you can put into Carter’s Lake.

Several wineries and apple orchards are just a “stone’s throw” away. Total seclusion yet just 15 minutes from the historic and quaint downtown area of Ellijay, GA. Which includes restaurants, BBQ, antique & boutique shops, grocery stores, breweries, and more.
