Dare to Dream at Lake Toxaway

Some people wait their whole lives for an opportunity such as this. Representing a culmination of many dream properties – a mountain retreat, a golf course home, a house near the lake, a peaceful respite next to a meandering stream – this 1.4 acre home site in Lake Toxaway Estates could be yours for just $325,000. Boasting 244’ directly on the golf course of the highly esteemed Lake Toxaway Country Club, the lot features stunning views of the 17th fairway, a lovely level building site, and a tranquil water feature winding through the property. It’s a beautiful blank canvas awaiting your distinctive touch – so dream BIG!

Dreaming is nothing new to Lake Toxaway. Originating as the vision of Pittsburg entrepreneur, E.H. Jennings, in 1902 – the rugged terrain associated with the area was transformed into a beautiful 614- acre mountain lake.  Named by its creator, Lake Toxaway was the first artificial lake built in the Appalachians. Knowing visitors would become as enamored with the area as he was, Jennings built The Toxaway Inn along the lake’s shoreline.  It quickly became a well-known retreat among the nation’s most affluent citizens, and early guests of the Inn included Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. Although the Inn is no more, Lake Toxaway continues to serve as a major draw for discerning travelers and their families, with mild year round temperatures, beautiful natural settings and a network of imaginative subdivisions that echo another era with resort-quality amenities.

Lake Toxaway Country Club serves as the crown jewel of this lakeside community – a celebration of North Carolina’s largest private lake and the serene mountain range that surrounds it.  At the heart of the Club lies the 18-hole Kris Spence-designed golf course, which is every bit as challenging as it is breathtaking.  Amenities at the Club also include fine dining, tennis, swimming, croquet, fitness center and professional golf instruction through the Tom Fazio Learning Center.  The lake itself spans 640 acres at an elevation of 3,010 feet and boasts 14 miles of pristine shoreline. Families who enjoy access to the lake while away spring, summer and early fall days swimming, boating, skiing, sailing, and fishing for native rainbow trout, bluegill, walleye, and both large and small mouth bass. Lake Toxaway is also located near the historic town of Highlands and the quaint village of Cashiers, where visitors and residents can enjoy world-class dining, theater and arts, seasonal festivals, and eclectic shopping experiences.
