This 6.4 acre-tract in Crab Orchard, TN offers outstandingly remarkable features which rarely can be found found on privately-owned land. The rugged scenery of Daddy’s Creek is truly breathtaking, and is one of many reasons why the backyard view of this property can only be fully appreciated in-person. As illustrated in some of the photos below, this property features a panoramic, 600 linear feet snapshot of one of the few protected National Wild and Scenic Waterways systems of the United States.
Longtime residents of the property include towering, deciduous trees such as oaks, maples, gums, and beech. Another friendly habitant of the property are the wild, Tennessee magnolia which flourish the throughout the property.
NOTE: We highly encourage you to shop around in checking out other riverfront comparables – if you come across a property with similar waterfront, similar cliff views, low taxes, no HOA and paved road frontage for anywhere under $400K, we strongly encourage you to consider buying that one instead.
As previously mentioned, the most impressive features of this property are situated in the valley toward the rear where you have direct access to historic Daddy’s Creek. Property ownership extends halfway width of the waterway, so swimming, fishing, kayaking and any other adventures are all on the table.
Boulders along this property’s creekside are overshadowed by a pinnacle of steep-sided limestone canyon on the opposite side of the river, which extend almost vertically from the water’s edge. These uniformly dramatic, multi-colored cliffs offer suitable nesting sites for the golden eagle and peregrine falcon, and result in outstanding aesthetic value for what could be your backyard view or creekside cabin overwatch.
Cliffs on the opposite side of the creek are approximately 100 feet tall and are almost vertical in many areas.
We cannot overstate the fact that most of the property along this particular body of water are basically considered a national park, which means the land is owned and managed by the Tennessee Valley Authority and the State of Tennessee – look on the county parcel information, and you will find that roughly 95% of Daddy’s Creekfront property is owned by the state of Tennessee, and most of the privately owned parcels are located upstream towards watershed with smaller waters and no bluffs to speak of.
Perhaps what’s most impressive is how clear the water cleanliness and clarity, which is one of the conditions of inclusion in the National Wild and Scenic Rivers systems.
To illustrate how clear this water is – most areas of the water in the three photos appear to be one foot to two feet deep. One may be surprised to learn that in each of these photos the water is no less than four feet deep. Each of these photos are a consistent depth of 5 – 6 feet, with various pockets of up to ten feet deep. Pretty amazing, considering you can clearly see every little cobblestone resting on the bed of the water.
