Enjoy the far- reaching views from this 150 acre Paris parcel where Loudoun, Fauquier and Clarke counties meet. Extensive forest restoration work has recently been accomplished to remove dead Ash trees, further enhancing the views. Historic timber trails have been reclaimed and numerous enchanting building sites have been created at the large open plateau which graces the top of the mountain. Mature trees, rubble stone walls and abundant wildlife are found here. Bring your ideas and imagination.
No easements or restrictions currently exist. The land is recorded in six deeded parcels, with the potential, by-right, to divide into many more parcels. The ease with which these parcels can be developed may be parlayed into a valuable opportunity for conservation easement advantages. The property is situated amidst a variety of protected, conserved lands which contribute to its conservation easement value. Piedmont Environmental Council and Virginia Outdoors Foundation easements protect over 1,000 acres in the area. A launch station for the Appalachian Trail is across the road.
