Description: 117 Acres of Pristine and Ultra-Private Mountain Forestland practically surrounded by National Forest and featuring tumbling Oakey Creek, towering white pines and hardwoods, and mountain views. Oakey Creek is a cool, clear running mtn stream that is a tributary to the Soque River, and it has been known to harbor trout seasonally. Oakey Creek is a designated trout stream in Habersham County. Along the creek and the numerous feeder streams, you'll also find incredible specimen trees including white pine, oaks, hemlocks, and poplar. From Oakey Creek, the topography rises and offers mountainside and ridgeline homesites with mountain views. Flanked by the USNF on both the Northern and Southern boundaries the property has roughly a mile of USNF land frontage and direct access to thousands of USNF acres. This incredible buffer with the National Forest truly makes this property uniquely private and protected. The property is also rich in history and served as a small scale gold mine, the Laprade Placer Mine, around 1840. The largest gold nugget found in Habersham Co. was found on this property and weighed 3.5lbs, a value of well over $100,000 in today's dollars. Currently used for recreation and hunting, there is a fabulous clearing for RVs in the interior of the property on the creek and a network of trails for riding and walking. Property has a maintained road that is very moderate in grade and parallels the creek, and it is well drained. Just the right distance from town to feel "away from it all" yet have easy access to conveniences, the property is 15-20 minutes to Clarkesville. It is located just around the corner from Mark of the Potter and only 15 minutes from LaPrades Marina on Lake Burton. Plus, new survey and a new environmental assessment.
