43 Ashe County Properties Hit Auction Block Oct. 1 and 2

Sept. 18, 2012. 43 properties in Ashe County will be auctioned off in a couple weeks.  

You’ll need to go off the beaten path to find these unique offerings in the High Country.  Want a 9 bedroom retreat lodge, a mountain getaway cabin, 10 acres of wooded privacy near streams,  building lots near the New River with Blue Ridge views, or a lake view cottage? How about a mountain top house ringed by mountains with a peek at Grandfather Mountain?  

A need to raise quick cash has forced a church group and two developers to create a two day auction event with something for every nature lover.  Compete in the live bidding and name your price, or make an early offer to buy now.

Ashe County has much to offer yet has been a well kept secret, and families have spent summers and weekends there since the 1960’s.  Kayak or tube the New River, bike and hike, play golf, attend music and art festivals, visit the cheese factory in West Jefferson or head to Boone for a great dinner.  Mountain City, Tenn., is also within easy reach.  Fall and spring are times for hiking and ATV exploring, while wintertime brings skiing and snowmobiling

The retreat property is located in Creston and will be auctioned on Oct. 1 at 10 a.m. The mountain top house will be auctioned on Oct. 1 at 4 p.m. in Fleetwood. The lake view cottage and building lots will be auctioned on Oct. 2 at 10 a.m. in Fleetwood as well.
