      ATTENTION DEVELOPERS! If you would like to create a small subdivision in Weaverville here is your chance. 12 acres with small home in place. Remodel the existing home to use as sales center while the subdivision is being marketed and then sell it for big profit. The land is slightly rolling pasture with huge views. It may be possible to get 9-12 homesites in place. The topography lends itself to houses with walkout basements. The property is easy to walk. Natural gas is already there, sewer easement is 700 yards away (per seller) and water is on Monticello, just not that far yet. There is so much potential and opportunity for developers to take advantage of the hot Weaverville market right now. NOTE: the true value is the property. If clients are interested in the acreage the listing agent will arrange a showing for the house.
