A Few Interesting Facts Viewshed in Polk County on Horse Acreage for Sale
About This Equestrian Dream Area:

Located in the central Blue Ridge Mountains and foothills, the area is known for its mild climate due to the "isothermal belt."

Of this gift of nature, W. N. Hutt, one-time horticulturist for the State of North Carolina wrote:

"Practical men who make their living from Mother Earth in fruits, vegetables, grains or other products are close observers of nature and her laws. They may not always be able to correctly interpret her ways and define her laws, but if they have observed any phenomenon and formulated any practice from it you may be pretty sure there is something in it, and you will be unwise if you disregard it without investigation."

Mr. Hurt    described the thermal belt as being similar to "a will-o'-the-wisp, which always seemed to elude his grasp, but he did draw the conclusion that thermal belts are a reality and that North Carolina seems to have a monopoly on them..."

Lake on Horse Farm Near Asheville, N.C. Polk County was formed in 1855 and named in honor of Colonel William Polk . The courthouse. is almost as old as Polk County, itself. I wonder what the old-timers would say if they heard that  Polk County was recently named as one of the Top 10 Rural Areas to Live in the U.S.A.

Three municipalities, historic Saluda, Tryon, and Columbus, and six townships make up the heart of the 234 miles of rural Polk County. I cover stories about all of these in my BLOG. Like the noteworthy individuals I mentioned, I happen to LOVE it here!

Does this look like  a place where YOU belong?

 

Maybe a look at just one incredible horse farm you could call Home would help you decide...So...with that in mind, I've scattered a few photos throughout this post to let you see what horse country in North Carolina might offer you....Maybe you will find a horse farm that could make your dreams come true.

HOW ABOUT... Panoramic Mountain Views, Rolling Acres a Private Lake, State Road Access,
Ample Pasture, 3-Board Fencing, a 6-Stall Barn, a large,  Equipment Building...and just over 5 minutes to schools?  

HOW ABOUT... Being near the famous Lake Lure?

HOW ABOUT...An incredible  Equestrian Estate, nestled in the isothermal belt,  just waiting for the "right" stewards with many possibilities: It could be an exceptional private estate, family farm, or seasonal retreat. To your delight, as an  eco-developer, who also wants to create an equestrian haven, this property can be divided. But wait...I haven't finished!
