TOP OF THE WORLD! And the views to match! Lot 11 in Gold City is perched to afford some of the most amazing views in western North Carolina! Own a part of Franklin history! Gold City was once a popular attraction that had its Grand Opening in 1965. Perched at the top of Cowee Mountain on the Macon/Jackson line, Gold City visitors rode a 4000′ chairlift to a 16th century Spanish village that hearkened back to the 1500s when Hernando DeSoto and his men once explored these mountains. Gold City the amusement park folded in the 1980s but Gold City the residential neighborhood has continued on with home sites boasting spectacular long range views to the southeast or northwest, depending on which side of the mountain you are. This lot comes with the potential for views to the northwest towards Cowee Bald and beyond plus deeded water rights to the well located on lot 21 AND a 3/12 interest in lots 9 & 2 located in Jackson County for the purposes of installing a septic system. The top of the property is where you’ll want to be for the best, controllable views & the high elevation (4020′) that brings the cooler summer temps. Access is gated & paved most of the way. Opportunity awaits!
