King Mountain Ranch is lightly improved with an off-grid owner’s compound consisting of a shop with lodge and hewn cabin. The improvement cluster is serviced by a septic system, domestic well, and 2,000 gallons of propane for domestic use.
Adjacent to the shop/lodge complex is a 650± square foot hewn log cabin which was deconstructed in West Virginia and moved to its current location and finished in 2018. The main level offers a sitting room with fireplace, half bath, and sleeping room. Above the main level is a small loft, large enough for a small sleeping space. Below grade is a walkout basement with full bathroom, kitchen, and mechanical amenities.
Constructed in 2018, this 3,790± square foot multipurpose metal structure was designed to offer a variety of uses. The heated, two-bay shop is large enough for tool storage and equipment repair with additional storage in an open loft area and contains its own bathroom. Adjacent to the shop but within the same structure is an 1,895± square foot lodge with full kitchen, bar, master suite, bunk room, and gym. The gym could easily be converted to additional living space or add a third bay to the shop.
The owner’s compound is serviced by two Caterpillar generators with 4,000 gallons of on-site dedicated propane storage which charges a battery bank. Added in 2021, a 10.4KW solar array supplements power to batteries, significantly reducing the fuel use. There is traditional satellite internet and a Starlink terminal installed.
The ranch lacks significant surface water, but there are a variety of undeveloped springs for which there are stock water rights. The residential and operational compound is serviced by an 11 gallon-per-minute well.
