Ashe County is a remote county located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina along the border with Tennessee and Virginia. It’s filled with gorgeous mountain scenery and sandwiched between cool protected areas such as Elk Knob State Park, the Cherokee National Forest, and Thurmond Chatham Gamelands. Much of the land here is in rural spots and townships throughout the county. Wildlife flourishes here and the best of each of the four seasons can be experienced. Many property owners end up using their getaway as a vacation rental part of the year when they are not enjoying it. If you are looking for a real estate investment, buying land in Ashe County is a great one. The North Carolina DOT is currently expanding Highway 221, the main thoroughfare in the county, and that means that land prices will only continue to go up as the county becomes even more accessible to and from other places.
