Two Amazing Easy-to-Build Lakefront Properties for Sale in Master-Planned Cashiers, NC Development

Nestled in Western North Carolina’s beautiful Tuckasegee Valley along the shoreline of Bear Creek Lake, the community of Bear Lake Reserve is a vacationer’s paradise. Bear Lake Reserve marries the concepts of community, luxury, leisure and nature together with amazing results. Whether you’re seeking a mountain vacation home or a primary residence, Bear Lake Reserve offers many options for the home buyer – and Silver Creek Real Estate Group is proud to present you with two of the latest and most exciting offerings.

The first lakefront property for sale (MLS#74040) in our arsenal is nestled on a peninsula that comes complete with a very gentle topography and easy-to-build, virtually flat homesite. With 584 feet of lakefront, panoramic views of both the lake and mountains, and an installed dock – this lot is the epitome of lakefront living at its best. Add to that a short walk to The Lake Club – considered to be the crown jewel of Bear Lake Reserve with its lakefront pool, outdoor community hearth, theater room, fitness center, restaurant and tavern – and you could easily experience the best of both worlds. One day you may elect to enjoy the seclusion of your mountain retreat by whiling away the afternoon on your back deck overlooking the lake, and the next you can take part in a myriad of community events like a summer concert at the picturesque Amphitheatre at Golden Farm, a golf tournament at the Nicklaus Design Bear Lake Golf Club, a picnic Bear Lake’s Mill Pond Pavilion, or a playdate at family-friendly Bear Creek Park.  This property is offered at $650,000.

The second lakefront property for sale (MLS#73993) in our Bear Lake Reserve inventory features over 400 feet along the shoreline of Bear Creek Lake, as well as another very gentle, easy building site. A very charming and serene small creek runs through the lot. With your dock already installed, a wealth of fishing, swimming, boating, skiing, and other water sport experiences await just beyond your doorstep. Enveloped by the tranquility of the Smoky Mountains National Park, every hiking adventure can be new and different. Within a stone’s throw of both the historic village of Cashiers and the resort town of Highlands, you are afforded easy access to all of the world-class dining, eclectic shopping, and unique culture that Western North Carolina has to offer. There is no shortage of things to do at Bear Lake Reserve, but residents are always welcome to enjoy their time at the lake doing absolutely nothing at all. This property is listed at $625,000.

This Thanksgiving, Silver Creek Real Estate Group is Thankful for YOU!

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Silver Creek Real Estate Group | Posted on Monday, November 21, 2011

Tagged Under : ,

As the Thanksgiving holiday draws near and the people of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau bustle about in search of linens, dishes, and fresh food to adorn their Thanksgiving tables, the team at Silver Creek Real Estate Group is reminded that we have so much to be thankful for. First and foremost, we want you to know that we are thankful for YOU.  From the vendors, brokers, builders, developers, media specialists, interior designers and clients we have had the pleasure of working with over the past few years, to the future friends and customers we have yet to meet – it is you who makes everything we do so rewarding.

2011 has been a year filled with blessings. We are blessed to have formed strong collaborations with DuPont Registry, a number of premier developments in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, and a bevy of wonderful, discerning buyers and sellers. Just this month we welcomed a new member to our team, veteran broker and local resident Ray Trine. Chief among our blessings is the fact that Silver Creek has steadily grown in reputation and stature through our dedication to “building relationships” and the ideal of “delivering dreams” to every client we serve. We are very proud that Silver Creek is a leading real estate firm in sales in the greater Cashiers area. The company founder, Jochen Lucke – was recently recognized by the Greater Cashiers Chamber of Commerce as Business Person of the Year. 

Lastly, we are thankful that our offices are located in one of the most beautiful places in the world – the mountains of North Carolina – and that we get to do what we LOVE for a living every day. We can’t begin to express the joy we feel when we run into one of our new neighbors at the local farmers’ market, at a community festival, or at the country club, particularly when they are one of our clients who we helped find the home of their dreams.  While we are always sad to see neighbors go, we truly appreciate those clients who look to us to help them find the ideal buyer for their home so that they may move on to life’s next adventure. Long story short – during this time of Thanksgiving, we simply wish to say “Thanks!” to you all.

From the Silver Creek family to yours, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Have yet to discover the natural splendor and tranquility that can only be found in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina?  What are you waiting for? Silver Creek can help you find the mountain home of your dreams – something to share with your family and friends, and to be truly thankful for in the coming years.

Christmas House comes to Cashiers, Sapphire and Highlands, NC

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Living in WNC, Things to Do | Posted on Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Tagged Under : , , , , , ,

High atop the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the happy little elves of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau are busy making plans to deck the halls for the region’s First-Annual Christmas House. Hosted at the site of the former Library Restaurant in the heart of Sapphire Valley, proceeds from the Christmas House will benefit the Village Green — a sprawling 12-acre community park in downtown Cashiers. This inaugural holiday event is sponsored by Silver Creek Real Estate Group — whose founder, Jochen Lucke, serves as the chairman of the Board of the Village Green.

Says Lucke, “2011 has been a very busy year for the Village Green. We played host to over 50 wonderful events — from private affairs such as birthday parties and weddings to public events like craft shows, outdoor concerts, and the Leaf Festival, which drew thousands of visitors to the area this fall. What better way to end the year than with an event dedicated to community and holiday cheer?”

The Christmas House will be magically transformed into an elegant holiday home furnished and decorated by local interior designers and merchants. Touring room after room filled with home décor items, sweet treats, live music, and the Jolly Old Elf himself will prove a terrific way to get into the holiday spirit while viewing the work of these talented folks and checking some items off of one’s gift list.

“We hope the Christmas House becomes a tradition that locals and visitors alike will look forward to attending,” states Lucke. “All of the proceeds from the event will support the continued maintenance and operation of the Village Green.

A wonderful asset to the area, we continue to make much needed improvements to the Village Green, which most recently included the chip and sealing of the parking lot at the Village Green Commons. All of these improvements are paid for by fundraising efforts, private grants, and donations to the Village Green. We receive no funds from local and state government, so our fundraising and continued generosity of visitors is crucial.” The house will be open starting Nov. 25 to Dec. 18, on Friday and Saturday from 10-5 and Sunday 11-4.
