Water Tank! Create a One-of-a-Kind Home in a Solid Steel Structure!

Totally round with a grand view of the town. This real water tank, now decommissioned, was once utilized by the then Thomasville furniture manufacturing company as a backup gravity-fed fire suppression system. It is 32-feet high with a 28-foot base diameter. Made of nearly 1/2 inch plate steel. All on a very thick concrete base.

Cut windows, add a staircase, build catwalks, and have a one-of-a-kind home like no other!

The location of the actual tank sits on approximately 2 acres. All located at the end of a dead-end road.

Both city water and sewer are available to this location. Electricity already exists right to the tank.

The quaint town of West Jefferson is located in Ashe County.

There’s always something going on here!

What is absolutely unique to this property is that it is nestled into its own little old-growth forest and surrounded by more old-growth, and stuffed with lots of wildlife. All this, yet only a very short walk to the main drag of West Jefferson, North Carolina — a place of increasing popularity, loaded with all the necessities and amenities. There is a Walmart, Lowes, Ingles Grocery, many eateries, a hospital, and much more – all within 2 miles of the water tank. A farmers market, car rallies, music, art, and many other cultural events are a seasonal constant.

I have owned the “tank” for a time now and have studied both it and its surroundings extensively. Along with the tank and its involved property, with some further land clearing, are also 2 possible additional building sites on the property. All with nice views of the town and close-by mountains.

I urge anyone with a growing interest in what is being offered to do further research into the town and its surroundings. I have done my share of creating and building over the years. I would be delighted to share my visions of what this rare opportunity has to offer. It is a true Special “Find…”! $295,000 Firm
