Breathtaking Panoramas, Luxury Estates and Sprawling Home Sites are the Hallmarks of This WNC Community

“Give me land, lots of land under starry skies above…
Don’t fence me in!”
~ Roy Rogers

Perched on the outermost edge of Cashiers overlooking the Sapphire Valley, Spring Forest is a distinctive gated community offering the best of luxury mountain living, along with panoramic vistas of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Many of the custom designed homes in this prestigious neighborhood are architectural masterpieces, and estate-sized home sites provide a beautiful backdrop for YOUR future architectural masterpiece. Silver Creek Real Estate Group is pleased to shine the spotlight on four very special properties boasting land (lots of land).

72 Woodcrest Trail
3 Bedrooms/3.5 Bathrooms
5.6 acres
$1,995,000

Nestled at the heart of a rambling home site in the Spring Forest community lies a spectacular home designed to draw all eyes to the Great Outdoors. It’s apparent from the expansive decking that runs the length of the home and the multitude of windows showcasing the magnificent panoramas that the architect and original owner wished to share their inspiration for this tour-de-force with each and every visitor of the home. Set at 4100+ elevation, the most stunning feature of this particular home is the view – layer upon layer of the Blue Ridge Mountains framed by blue skies above and a rolling sea of green valley floor below. In order to best complement the beauty of the vistas, the builder pulled out all the stops on the interior of the home, as well. The common areas of the home include a light and airy keeping room and an adjoining great room that certainly earns its name with soaring cathedral ceilings, a dramatic wall of windows, and a stunning floor-to-ceiling native stone fireplace – providing the perfect space for both intimate to large gatherings of family and friends. The home’s matching set of expansive guest rooms each feature a full bathroom and porch – offering every visitor the sense of their own true mountain getaway. In keeping with its calling as the master suite, the spacious and romantic homeowners’ private quarters showcases a sitting room with fireplace, an additional fireplace in the bedroom, and a personal balcony. To learn more about this incredible property, check out its spotlight blog “Spring Forest Estate Boasts Stunning Views and Incredible New Price.”

10 Windemere Way
Home Site
2 acres
$230,000

A private road leads you to a very tranquil setting that plainly reveals the inspiration for the community’s name with its mass of Carolina hardwoods and brilliant green canopy. A gently rolling building site on 2 acres near the top of Spring Forest serves as the ideal blank canvas for a future work of architectural art. With awe-inspiring views to the south and west, the future homeowners are sure to delight in countless sunsets over the Blue Ridge Mountains.

6 Windemere Way
Home Site
2.83 acres
$165,000

Simply amazing price for a lot of this size and views of this magnitude. Originally priced at $340k, the future owners will feel as though they’ve unearthed buried treasure. Better start digging before this incredible deal is gone! Once prospective buyers set eyes on the spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding mountains to the south, southeast, and southwest, they’ll want to begin building right away! Also visible from the future deck of the future home is a stunning view of the Country Club of Sapphire Valley golf course.

8 Windemere Way
Home Site
2.39 acres
$165,000

If you miss out on Lot 6, don’t worry – its slightly smaller twin lives close by! Nearly .5 acres smaller than Lot 6, the difference is reflected in the equally amazing low price of just $165,000. Tremendous views of the surrounding mountains to the south, southeast, and southwest are visible from this site – inspiring a home of similarly matching beauty.

Nestled near the resort town of Sapphire and the historic village of Cashiers, residents of the gated community of Spring Forest are afforded convenient access to a treasure trove of unique shops, distinctive dining establishments, charming local festivals, and eclectic culture, as well as a number of highly revered country clubs featuring world-class amenities.

Listing Price of this spectacular home in Sapphire Valley Reduced by $405,000!!

A majestic stone and wrought iron gate bids welcome upon your arrival to 72 Woodcrest Trail in the Sapphire Valley community of Spring Forest, letting you know that something very special awaits just beyond.

Spacious suites and a wealth of living spaces inspire inhabitants and guests alike to sit back, relax and enjoy the view.  In a home that boasts many features – from pristine landscaping to a multitude of striking stone fireplaces to an abundance of porches – the most incredible feature would have to be the breathtaking panoramas visible from nearly every window and every corner of the covered porches that run the length of the rear of the home. Set at an astounding elevation of over 4100 feet, the new homeowners can enjoy countless afternoons peering out over the 5.6 acres of the property that encircle the home set against multiple layers of mountains in the distance, a rolling sea of green trees on the valley floor below, and a ceiling of blue skies and billowy white clouds above.  As the sun sets in the West, painting the sky with pastel hues before giving way to an indigo palette dotted with amber overhead – even the most humble hearts will swell with fulfillment and pride in the knowledge that this could be their view for an eternity.

While the vistas are epic and timeless, the price of the home is entirely new.
