Luxury Vacation Home Sales on the Rise

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Real Estate News, Silver Creek Real Estate Group | Posted on Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Tagged Under : , , , , ,

Our suspicions have been confirmed! According to a recent story published in the Wall Street Journal, sales of luxury vacation homes are slowly rebounding and the clouds are “starting to lift” all the way from Santa Monica, California to the sunny shores of Hilton Head, South Carolina. In Jessica Silver-Greenberg’s article “Vacation Homes: Why it May be Time to Buy” – the WSJ writer cites reports from brokers across the nation that they are receiving more inquiries than they have had in years, as well as revealing statistics from the National Association of Realtors and the Federal Reserve.

At our own Cashiers, NC-based brokerage firm, Silver Creek Real Estate Group – we have experienced a very positive uptick in both the number of inquiries and the number of closings on second homes in recent months. Savvy investors have been able to take advantage of extremely desirable pricing on a generously-sized inventory of everything from land offering stunning panoramic views and a blank canvas on which to build one’s dream home, to a ready-to-occupy quaint cottage by a tranquil mountain lake, to a palatial luxury estate at the edge of an award-winning mountain golf course. Perhaps most attractive to potential buyers are the current listing prices paired with incredible interest rates – many at historically low levels.

If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a vacation or primary home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, there may be no better time to buy than right now! You could be moved in by Labor Day Weekend, just in time to enjoy an unforgettable change of seasons as summer gives way to fall and the green trees are transformed into fiery shades of red, orange and gold. We invite you to peruse our listings in Cashiers,  Highlands, Sapphire Valley, Lake Glenville, and Lake Toxaway online at the Silver Creek Real Estate Group website. When you’re ready to take a tour in person, call Silver Creek’s talented team of brokers at 828.743.1999, e-mail us at info@ncliving.com, or fill out our convenient online contact form.  If you happen to be in the neighborhood, we welcome you to drop by our offices near the Cashiers Crossroads at the Shoppes at CreekSide.

Grand Entrance and Views to Match at Foxfire Home For Sale near Cashiers, NC

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Real Estate News, Silver Creek Real Estate Group | Posted on Sunday, July 24, 2011

Tagged Under : , , ,

It’s simple to make a grand entrance at this stunning 3 bedroom/4.5 bathroom home nestled between the popular resort town of Highlands and the quaint historic village of Cashiers in the exclusive gated community of Foxfire. What is undeniably the centerpiece of the exterior of the home, a striking covered portico boasting stone and timber accents welcomes guests – conveying the feeling of an arrival at a luxury mountain resort. As they pass through the beautiful etched glass French doors depicting a pair of graceful herons, visitors will be met with an irrefutable sense of peace and relaxation. Sporting the interior of a true mountain retreat, the foyer opens up to a Great Room that certainly earns its name with Heart Pine floors and a massive wood-burning stone fireplace that soars from the floor up into the rafters of the cathedral ceiling. While enclosed within the walls of a home, the floor plan evokes the impression of wide-open spaces and a fluid connectivity from one room to the next. Just beyond the many windows and doors lie truly inspirational views of the multiple layers of mountain ranges in the distance and exceptionally wonderful outdoor living spaces in which to enjoy them. Two stories of covered and open decks hold the promise of many pleasant conversations, cups of coffee, glasses of wine and meals shared outdoors.

On the subject of meals, food preparation can become a magnificent experience in a gourmet kitchen such as this. With a breakfast bar that frames the room, the chef will feel like the star in their own food show as they create magnificent dishes amongst the custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances such as the Thermador gas range, Sub Zero Refrigerator/Freezer, Bosch Dishwasher, and GE Profile Warming Drawer. The chef could shop for fresh ingredients at the Cashiers Farmers Market in the morning, and then make ready to dazzle their audience with their culinary talents later that evening.

At the end of the day, the roomy master-on-main will serve as a welcome retreat for the homeowner while the guests adjourn to one of two guest bedrooms downstairs. Also located on the lower level is a second living area – a terrific flexible space for a family room, recreation room, or home theater overlooking the lower deck and the mountains in the distance.

Perfectly perched at the top of the Foxfire development on 2.4 gently rolling acres in a quiet cul-de-sac, this home also offers a delightful detached shed – an ideal space for an aspiring master gardener or craftsman. Sporting a brand new price of just $949,000, it won’t be long before this very special property with the grand entrance makes its grand exit off the market. The experienced brokers of Silver Creek Real Estate Group welcome the opportunity to take you on a personal tour of the home. To schedule your viewing, please call Silver Creek at 828.743.1999 or e-mail the team at info@ncliving.com. Interested parties are always welcome to drop by Silver Creek’s offices – located in the heart of Cashiers at the Shops at CreekSide.

Wade Hampton Golf Club Home Offered For Sale

Tagged Under : , , ,

Southern Grace Meets European Elegance in this Wade Hampton Home

Southern grace and European elegance are the hallmarks of this four bedroom, five bathroom home for sale located at 478 The Low Road in Cashiers’ highly esteemed Wade Hampton Golf Club community. Nestled on three quarters of an acre of lavishly designed landscaping and Carolina hardwoods, this spacious mountain retreat is newly priced at an astounding $1,325,000. With characteristics such as its welcoming rocking chair front porch, cedar shake roof and alcove windows, the stately exterior is reminiscent of something you might find in the low country along the marshes of Charleston. However, the extravagant interior is more evocative of a home that might grace the pages of a European interior design magazine. Beautifully appointed with tailor-made window treatments and custom cabinetry with built-in wine storage, the home also boasts striking features such as exposed beams, a showplace stone fireplace in the living room, and Australian Cypress floors throughout. Guest rooms are located on all three floors of the home, but pay particular attention to the sprawling Master-on-Main that encompasses a sitting room and “his & her” Master Baths. The home’s finished lower level contains plenty of flexible space that could serve as the future homeowners’ fitness room, craft space, home theater, and more.  When entertaining al fresco, you’ll have not one but two covered porches to choose from – each sporting their own outdoor hearth to add a little warmth and a lot of atmosphere to any evening.

Tucked behind the gates of one of the region’s most prestigious golf course communities, the new residents of this home will be afforded the consideration of club membership by proposal. Wade Hampton’s celebrated 18-hole championship course is situated in an expansive valley, framed on either side by giant Carolina hardwoods and swaying pines. Ranked 17th in the US by Golf Digest, the illustrious Tom Fazio-designed course sits in a lush valley with picturesque views at every turn. In keeping with a golf course of such high stature, Wade Hampton’s clubhouse is steeped in tradition and offers beautiful views of the golf course and Chimneytop Mountain, as well as world-class dining. All residents of Wade Hampton enjoy close proximity to the nearby historic village of Cashiers, where they can attend seasonal festivals, take advantage of upscale dining, stroll through a bevy of unique shops, and experience the area’s distinctive culture.

To schedule a tour of this incredible home in one of North Carolina’s most sought after luxury communities, please contact Jochen Lucke at Silver Creek Real Estate Group.  He can be reached by calling 828.743.1999, e-mailing jlucke@ncliving.com.
