This wooded parcel is sloped (not steep) offering excellent drainage away from your new home. The driveway could be near level - there is both gently sloping land and more moderate angles, and all of it beautiful. Grab some comfortable shoes and come see this quiet corner of western NCÂ¶ This quiet location in the final phase of Clearwater Creek might be perfect! It's near the north entrance to the gated community (which is one mile from US Hwy 221), it offers easy access into the town of Rutherfordton, and it will be easy to build a one-level home or a home with a basement under it. Light restrictions protect your investment.Â¶ We might be a 'quiet corner' in western NC, but by no means are we remote. We have great access to the US Highway and Interstate systems, and the nearby Tryon International Equestrian Center is a $150 million investment into our area, with horse lovers from around the world showing up (or showing off) for the competitions.Â¶ A rural community north of Rutherfordton, (the county seat of Rutherford County in western North Carolina), Clearwater Creek is near grocery stores, health care, shopping, restaurants... And just about anything you need is a short drive away. Stores like Lowes, Walmart, Staples, Tractor Supply (and many more) are within a fifteen minute drive, Lake Lure is about fifteen minutes, and Asheville, the largest city in western NC, is about a 45 minute drive!
