Simply Stunning Estate Just Sold in Highly Revered Cedar Hill Community of Western North Carolina

From the earliest settlers and visitors to the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina to present-day residents and vacationing families of the resort villages and quaint townships that dot the area, people have been building and investing in “legacy properties” for well over a century. These “legacy properties” are very special homes designed to be enjoyed year after year, and passed down from generation to generation. We are pleased to announce the recent sale of one such property in the prestigious 500-acre Cashiers community of Cedar Hill, as well as the availability of another.

“The Legacy of Cedar Hill” – a sprawling 9,500+ square foot estate – was superbly constructed by premier builder, Walters Development. The home features 6 bedrooms, 6 ½ bathrooms with heated floors, an astounding SEVEN stacked stone fireplaces throughout, gourmet kitchen, hardwood floors, coffered ceilings, library, media room, billiards room, fitness room, climate-controlled wine cellar with 700 bottle capacity, wet bar and much, much more – sold for nearly $3,575,000. The new homeowners will surely enjoy this distinctive property with family and friends for years to come. Perched atop the summit of Cedar Hill, The Legacy is a jewel among many in one of the Plateau’s most prestigious addresses.

Silver Creek Real Estate Group represents another exceptional property in Cedar Hill (at an agreeably lower price tag of $1,375,000) – a true hidden gem. The striking three bedroom/four bathroom classic mountain home located at 895 West Rochester Drive features quality craftsmanship, unexpected touches, and luxury finishes found throughout every room of this home.

Its spacious interior makes it an entertainer’s dream – ideal for hosting parties, entertaining weekend guests or accommodating family gatherings. Stacked stone and timber accents enhance the feeling of a true mountain get-away – immediately conveying the message to “sit back and relax.” Guests can enjoy an elegant supper in the lavish dining room, after-dinner drinks served from the wet bar, and a night of cards and board games in the cozy upstairs loft. On warm evenings, you can take the party outside and delight in a night under the stars on the expansive rear deck. There’s even room to grow – a bonus room over the garage offers extra space for even more friends and family, and is ready to finish for an in-law suite, additional office or media room. This home can also serve as the ultimate escape for when you just want to get away from it all – high atop the mountain, far away from the rush and noise of the city. You can curl up with a good book in the home’s handsome library or enjoy breathtaking vistas set to the sound of a crackling fire in the outdoor hearth on the home’s lovely screened-in porch. 

A nature lover’s paradise with easy access to the exciting shopping, dining, and culture of the nearby resort village of Cashiers and the top-notch amenities of Wyndham Resort at Fairfield’s Sapphire Valley – the secluded, gated community of Cedar Hill offers its residents the very best of both worlds. Nestled among primeval hardwoods, the peaceful calm of breathtaking waterfalls and gently rolling hills offering some of the most splendid long-range views in Western North Carolina – Cedar Hill provides the modern convenience of underground utilities to each home site, so as not to mar the lovely natural landscape.

Western North Carolina Residents Witness First Show of Fall Colors

Come Enjoy the SHOW!
Western North Carolina Residents Witness First Show of Fall Colors
(And Wish To Share the View)

September 22nd marked the first official day of Fall this year, and evidence of the change in seasons is just beginning to take place on the southern crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. A rolling sea of green trees is slowly transforming to a rainbow of color as the leaves on the hardwoods begin to change. Unlike years past, 2009’s leaf season is expected to be one of the most beautiful to date thanks to all of the rain during this year’s spring and summer months. The rainfall should attribute to a more vibrant, longer lasting show of colors. 

Fall Colors in Western North Carolina

Fall Colors in Western North Carolina

According to Dr. Gary Walker, a professor at Appalachian State University, Western North Carolina has the highest diversity of tree species in North America.  He explains that this diversity of trees, hardwoods in particular, lends itself to an extended display of color – lasting from early October through late November. Pair that with large tracts of protected land through our national forests and parks, as well as citizens, developers and builders dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of the region – and spectators are afforded stunning unmarred colorful panoramas that stretch for miles and miles. 

For more than one hundred years, residents of the Highlands-Cashier Plateau have been afforded front row seats to this colorful spectacle of Mother Nature. This year, they wish to share this very extraordinary time of year with their neighbors from near and far. The Greater Cashiers Area Merchants Association has taken great care in planning their first annual Leaf Festival of Cashiers Valley for the weekend of October 8-10. The weekend’s festivities will include live music, Artisan Festival, Tour of Homes, kid-friendly activities and so much more. For more information about this very special celebration of nature and community, click here. If you can’t make it for that particular weekend, the historic villages of both Cashiers and Highlands offer dazzling scenery all season long, in addition to their unique brand of dining and shopping experiences. It’s well worth the drive for an impromptu vacation weekend you won’t soon forget! For more information about the Leaf Festival and area accommodations, contact the helpful staff at Silver Creek Real Estate Group at calling 828-743-1999 or via e-mail at info@ncliving.com.

Western North Carolina Becoming More of a “Destination” Than Ever Before

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Living in WNC | Posted on Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Tagged Under : ,

Asheville Regional Airport Increases its Flights

According to a recent report in Asheville’s Citizen Times, Asheville Regional Airport will be adding two nonstop daily flights between Asheville, North Carolina and Chicago, Illinois beginning December 17, 2009. The flights, courtesy of United Airlines, will be on a 50-passenger regional jet, departing Asheville at 6:30 a.m. and 5:20 p.m. and returning from Chicago’s O’Hare International airport at 2:10 p.m. and 7 p.m. 

Asheville Airport

Asheville Airport

In recent years, Asheville Regional Airport has learned that Chicago typically ranks second or third as a destination from Asheville – even though there has never before been a non-stop flight between the two cities. This move should aid in easing the traffic flow and travel experience for commercial travelers from Asheville and surrounding towns to the Midwest and back. Hopes are high that this direct flight will also add to the appeal of Western North Carolina as a vacation destination for Northern and Mid-Western travelers. Between Asheville’s renowned Biltmore Estate, and the historic resort villages of Highlands and Cashiers – there’s an abundance of family-friendly recreation, unique dining and shopping experiences, colorful history and culture, and breathtaking natural splendor to be found in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina (and let’s not forget those mild year-round temperatures)!
