Watauga County is located in western North Carolina, near Tennessee, and is known as the heart of the High Country region. It includes towns such as Valle Crucis, Boone, and Blowing Rock within its borders. Much of Watauga County is a bit more commercial than the areas in counties like Ashe and Alleghany and that is partially due to the fact that Boone and Appalachian State University led the county into the 20th century after the school began as a state teachers college in the 1890s. Today, this college region is surrounded by resort areas such as Valle Crucis (known for its historic charm) and Blowing Rock (known for its upscale grandeur). There is plenty to see and do all around the county and as a result, many families choose this place to buy a home or land. Convenient to areas on the Blue Ridge Parkway, rivers such as the Watauga River, the Toe River, the New River, and plenty of spectacular amenities and culturally rich attractions, the homes and land here are some of the best types of mountain real estate that you can buy.
