This Rare Find is an almost 10 Acre Hilltop property full of Hardwoods that has both escaped being in a neighborhood HOA and lies in close proximity to Watts Bar Lake. This property is sandwiched between Palisades Estates to the South (which features very nice homes) and Abels Valley Subdivision to the North. This 9 Acres is not part of either community and therefore remains Unrestricted except to any zoning at the county level. This land is zoned R-1 (low density) Single Family Residential which allows double-wide mobile homes, tiny homes, cabins and permanent structures as small as only 170 square feet. Single-wide mobile homes are not allowed under R-1 zoning. RVs are allowed for storage and usage, but not as a permanent residence.

This property features almost 2,000' of Road Frontage along both Abels Valley Road and Rodgers Road. Total lot measurements are 450' x 1452' x 339' x 1526' - 418,873' (approximate) square feet or 9.616 Acres. A Full Survey is available upon request. The combination of lot shape and road frontage allows plenty of flexibility on how you would like to customize your Homesite or Multiple Homesites for development. Manageable driving distance to the major cities and to nearby towns. No HOA and cheap property taxes are only $305/Year.


We have both full-size and electronic PDF copies of the full survey on the property and the metes and bounds to ensure accurate boundaries. Corner Stakes and Iron Pins were originally set in 2008. Electronic Plats of the Survey prepared by Gibson Land Surveying are available upon request in Pdf.

Soil Map Completed:

This land has just been soil mapped illustrating all of the soil and drainage conditions on the ground. The general soil map is now complete and stamped by a state-licensed soil-scientist. The property mostly features Fullerton type soils at the top ridges and bottom along the road frontage, creating ideal conditions for subdivision. Our recommendation for development would be 3/4 Acre homesites at the top or bottom of the ridge along Rodgers Road with the drain fields located opposite to allow pump-up or pump-down conventional septic systems. The frontage along Abel Valley Road is flat and suitable for build sites as well.

Please note that a high-intensity soil map is the next step required in order to apply for the septic development permit. We recommend working with the same soil-scientist who has background familiarity with the property.

Prime Development Opportunity:

Given the possibilities with the soil type and geology, this property has the potential to be subdivided further into 3/4 acre homesites with almost immediate lake access. Rockwood Water Lines run along Abels Valley Road with a variety of water tap size options available, depending on the size and scope of a full-scale development. Power lines run completely around the road frontage of the property.
