The proud new homeowners will delight in priceless days spent strolling across a covered bridge over the stream that cuts playfully through the property to a majestic waterfall, countless evenings spent entertaining on stone terraces around the lovely low-maintenance garden, and a lifetime spent gazing at breath-taking views of Chimneytop Mountain and Chestnut Pond. Their new picture-perfect home constructed of vintage hand-hewn logs, stone, and bark is complemented by an equally charming guest house featuring a full kitchen and spacious stone-covered terrace. The interior of the main home boasts soaring cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, walls of windows overlooking tranquil vistas, gourmet kitchen paired with formal dining room, and special luxury touches throughout such as coffered ceilings, hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces. Close proximity to the popular resort town of Highlands and the historic village of Cashiers means that they will be able to enjoy all of the unique shops, fine dining, eclectic culture, and family-friendly community events whenever they wish.

“Buying a Home Now is a No-Brainer” in December Issue of Money Magazine

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Real Estate News, Silver Creek Real Estate Group | Posted on Monday, November 29, 2010

Great Advice for Homebuyers from CNN’s Ali Velshi
Popular CNN Anchor Writes That “Buying a Home Now is a No-Brainer” in December Issue of Money Magazine

Host of CNN Newsroom and Chief Business Correspondent for one of the nation’s most respected news outlets, CNN’s Ali Velshi recently loaned his expertise and talents to the December Issue of Money Magazine. His article “Buying a Home Now is a No-Brainer” is featured in the Mastering Your Money Segment and outlines the reasons why NOW is the perhaps the best time to invest in a new home. By looking at the trends over recent months, even years – it appears that we may be on the backend of the housing bargain bonanza. Velshi claims that while housing prices seem to be slowly ticking upward, loan rates remain at historically low levels. He writes that “if you have 20% to put down and good credit, now is a great time to buy.” The journalist even took his own advice and invested in a New York City apartment earlier this year.

The key point of Velshi’s article in its simplest form – “Buying a fairly priced home at today’s rates may be the best deal you will ever get.” SO – why wait any longer? If you’ve been on the fence about purchasing that dream home in the mountains, it’s high time you turned those dreams into a stunning 4 bedroom-4 bathroom reality. Regardless of the number of bedrooms and bathrooms in your particular dream home, Silver Creek Real Estate Group may very well hold the key that will get you in the front door. We represent a number of luxury estates in some of the finest communities along the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. There is also a treasure trove of home sites to choose from if you wish to build your dream home from the ground up. Take advantage of awesome house and land prices at historically low interest rates before it’s too late! To take a virtual tour of some of the wonderful homes and property available in the historic mountain village of Cashiers, or the popular resort towns of Highlands, Sapphire, Glenville and Lake Toxaway – visit Silver Creek Real Estate Group online at www.ncliving.com. To schedule a personalized tour of some of the incredible homes and communities that make up our unique corner of the world, call Silver Creek’s talented team of brokers at 828.743.1999, e-mail us at info@ncliving.com, fill out our helpful online contact form, or drop by our offices in the Shoppes at CreekSide next to Wendys Restaurant and near the Cashiers Crossroads.

Cashiers’ Own Wade Hampton and Mountaintop Golf Courses Make the Lists of Top 100 Golf Courses in the World 2011 and Golfweek’s Best Residential Courses 2011

The word is out – the world is finally discovering that Cashiers, North Carolina is filled with all sorts of hidden gems! Already well-known for our temperate year-round climates, breath-taking mountain views, eclectic collection of shops and restaurants, and unique brand of Southern Hospitality – what many are now learning is that our golf courses rank up there with some of the finest in the nation!

Just last week, a ranking site out of the United Kingdom – Top 100 Golf Courses of the World –  released their list for 2011. Their original shortlist consisted of 216 courses from countries all over the world, including The United States of America, Australia, England, Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand, Canada, France and more. In the end, New Jersey’s famed Pine Valley Golf Club walked away with top honors, the renowned Augusta National in Georgia ranked #3, and Cashiers’ own Wade Hampton Golf Club was recognized among the best courses in the world at a highly respectable #52.

Wade Hampton Golf Club in Cashiers NC

Wade Hampton has been honored once again by the recent release of Golfweek Magazine’s Best Residential Courses earlier this month. Wade Hampton Golf Club was listed as #3 in a list consisting of 100 national courses stretching from Kiawah Island, South Carolina in the East all the way to Carmel Valley, California in the West. Topping the list is another highly esteemed Cashiers golf course – Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club – at #1!

Whether you’re a scratch golfer or an avid hacker, Silver Creek Real Estate Group welcomes the opportunity to introduce you to these two fine communities in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Celebrating a quarter of a century as one of Western North Carolina’s most sought after luxury communities, Wade Hampton Golf Club features an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Tom Fazio. The Wade Hampton Course has received accolades since its inception. In keeping with a Club of such high stature, the Wade Hampton clubhouse offers beautiful views of the golf course and Chimneytop Mountain, as well as world-class dining. Tennis, swimming, fishing and hiking throughout the beautiful natural setting that surrounds the course are just a few of the other activities available to residents and club members at Wade Hampton. Membership to this exclusive club is by invitation only. The residences that line the narrow lanes of Wade Hampton Golf Club under a canopy of trees rest on lots ranging from one quarter to over five acres in size, and vary from quaint mountain cottages to palatial estates.

General Store at Mountaintop Golf and Lake Club in Cashiers NC

On the other hand, a relatively new kid on the block – Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club – is quickly growing in popularity and reputation as one of the most superb communities the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau has to offer.  Perched high atop a beautiful expanse of the Blue Ridge Mountains at 4,000 feet above sea level, Mountaintop offers its residents some of the most stunning views in the region. Set upon a sprawling 731 acres, the developer – Discovery Land Company – has designed a luxury mountain retreat community of just 251 estate lots and 75 cabins and lodges peppered about the property. Lots range in size from one-half acre to five acres, providing residents with the peace and quiet that has become a trademark of luxury mountain living. Mountaintop also offers a Tom Fazio-designed golf course that is every bit as challenging as it is breathtaking. Other activities available to residents of Mountaintop include water sports at the private Lake Club on nearby Lake Glenville, horseback riding, fly fishing,hiking or simply relaxing while being pampered at Mountaintop’s world-class spa.

Lake Toxway water level lowered for maintenance

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Living in WNC | Posted on Sunday, November 28, 2010

Tagged Under : , ,

Lake Toxaway News: What Goes Down Will Come Up

On November 29, the water levels of Lake Toxaway will be lowered for the first time since 1990. An estimated drop of 6 to 7 feet will allow community property owners to perform repairs to seawalls, docks, and boathouses. During this time, the Lake Toxaway Community Association will also dredge out silt that has collected in parts of the popular man-made Appalachian lake. Other goals of the scheduled drawdown include:

• Gaining insight into the effectiveness of prior silt dredging efforts
• Studying the sources of silting to possibly prevent a repeat performance in the future
• Improving fish habitats
• Removal of weeds growing in shallow areas of the lake
• “Turning” the lake to improve the water quality
• Documentation of exposed lake bed, lake lowering procedures and environmental conditions throughout the drawdown
• Removal of tree stumps and rocks to increase safety of the lake
• Create work for local contractors

The Association will begin restoring water to the lake in February 2011, with the intention of having lake levels return to normal sometime in March to prepare for the busy Spring and Summer seasons in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Situated at around 3,000 feet above sea level, Lake Toxaway offers 14 miles of shoreline and a wealth of opportunities for water-themed activities.  The beautiful 614-acre mountain lake offers the best of both worlds with amazing views of the mountains and lakefront living, and is home to some of the area’s most sought after communities. First established as an elite lakeside retreat in the early 1900’s by Pittsburgh entrepreneur E.H. Jennings, Lake Toxaway continues to draw visitors year after year. Its status as the largest privately held lake in North Carolina makes it a peaceful and serene sanctuary high atop the Blue Ridge Mountains.

To learn more about Lake Toxaway and the communities that surround her, contact the talented team of brokers at Silver Creek Real Estate Group. We welcome the opportunity to introduce you and your family to one of the crown jewels of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau, and can be reached by calling 828-743-1999, by e-mailing info@ncliving.com, by filling out our convenient online form, or by dropping by our offices – conveniently located in the heart of Cashiers, in the Shoppes at CreekSide. We invite you to sneak a peek at some of the communities which feature listings for available homes and properties on our comprehensive website, www.ncliving.com.

Two Real Estate Opportunities Remain in Highly Sought After Lake Glenville Community

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Real Estate News, Silver Creek Real Estate Group | Posted on Saturday, November 27, 2010

Tagged Under : , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

In addition to Trillium’s solid reputation for unsurpassed integrity in architectural design, there’s real truth behind this prestigious community’s credo of “Where Families Belong.”  It’s no wonder why brokers for one of Cashier’s most respected real estate firms have proven a good fit for this highly esteemed Western North Carolina development. In 2010, Silver Creek Real Estate Group was responsible for the sales of half of the properties available in our Trillium inventory – and the year isn’t over yet. In every instance, our brokers worked tirelessly with their clients in order to find the ideal match of both home and community for their individual families. For a handful of those client families, Trillium proved the perfect fit. If you have always dreamed of owning a home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Trillium might just measure up to be where YOUR family belongs, as well.

Boasting homes in the Arts & Crafts and Adirondack architectural styles that are every bit as striking as the breathtaking views of lovely Lake Glenville and surrounding mountains, Trillium also offers a wide variety of amenities and adventures for families of all shapes, sizes and temperaments. If its peace and tranquility you seek, leisurely strolls along the shoreline, sunset views over the lake and lazy days spent fishing from fully stocked ponds will surely fit the bill. If your family is the outgoing type, two scenic hiking trails and nearly 1500 acres of lake will serve as your playground.  Trillium has a fleet of boats available for rental – canoes, kayaks, fishing boats, deck boats, runabouts and pontoons. Water ski equipment and other water sport items are also available to rent.  For indoor adventures, Trillium’s wildly popular fitness and wellness center, Apple Orchard Park houses three indoor clay tennis courts and state-of-the-art fitness equipment, and offers services like high-energy fitness classes and relaxing spa treatments.

Set at the heart of the community, Trillium’s clubhouse is an architectural masterpiece and an integral part of life at Trillium, offering residents casual dining in the Grille Room, a wrap-around porch for world-class dining, and an expansive lawn for hosting special community events. The community’s award-winning 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Morris Hatalsky, surrounds the clubhouse and is every bit as challenging as it is beautiful. Clinics and private lessons are available with the full-time pro on site. A less challenging par three Garden Golf course is a terrific amenity the entire family can enjoy without the worry of tee times and scorecards. Opportunities for memory making don’t end there. Afternoons spent picnicking at the Lakeside Pavilion or playing a game of croquet on the Arbor Lawn will bring new meaning to the word “carefree.” Evenings spent enjoying dinner by candelight at The Landings, nestled at the tip of Lake Glenville, will bring new meaning to the word “romance”. Even more enjoyment awaits nearby – a short drive to nearby Cashiers provides family members and guests with fun-filled days of shopping and strolling the streets of an historic resort village. Grab a seat on the lawn and take in an open-air concert on a balmy summer night at Cashier’s Village Green.

Have we piqued your interest yet?  Take a peek at the remaining Silver Creek listings in Trillium, and we have a feeling you’ll be hooked!  The toughest part will be choosing between the “Delightful ‘Dollhouse’ with the Heart of an Estate” or the “Entertainer’s Dream Home”.  The first is a charming 2 bedroom-2 ½ bath bungalow that features a craftsman-inspired exterior which offers a small taste of the treat that awaits beyond the front door. Distinctive touches such as coffered wood ceilings, warm hardwood flooring, and gourmet kitchen with tile backsplash & granite countertops mark an interior befitting a luxury mountain manor. A striking dual-sided floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace is the home’s centerpiece. The expansive rear porch overlooks nature preserve, offering the peace and serenity you’ve been craving. This home is newly priced at $398,000. Need a little more space to spread out? The second is a classic Adirondack-themed retreat set on over a half acre offering an open floor plan, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and loads of mountain charm. Its lower level features a private guest suite with two bedrooms, game room, and covered deck. This home is ideally suited for hosting a bevy of memorable gatherings, and is offered at an incredible $495,000.

To schedule a tour of these homes, or to sneak a peek at other homes for sale or home sites available in Trillium – contact the experienced team at Silver Creek Real Estate Group TODAY!  We can be easily reached by calling 828.743.1999, e-mailing us at info@ncliving.com, filling out our convenient online contact form, or dropping by our offices in the Shoppes at CreekSide near the Cashiers Crossroads.
