Build Your Legacy Property on Lake Cardinal in Toxaway, North Carolina

Terrific 1+ acre Lakefront Lot Makes its Debut with Silver Creek Real Estate Group

Over 100 years ago, Pittsburgh entrepreneur E.H. Jennings transformed the rugged terrain of a portion of the Blue Ridge Mountains into an exquisite 6.14-acre mountain lake. Today, it appears as though it has been here since the dawn of time – tranquil, majestic, and timeless. Named by its creator, Lake Toxaway was the first artificial lake built in the Appalachians. Jennings quickly began building his legacy along with the community by erecting The Toxaway Inn at the lake’s shoreline. He was certain that visitors would become as enamored with the area as he was. The Toxaway Inn quickly became a well-known retreat among the nation’s most well to do citizens, including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone.

Lake CardinalWhile on vacation at Lake Toxaway, socialite and Savannah native Lucy Camp Armstrong fell in love with the area. She bought 40 acres around the lake and built an estate, lavish gardens, and riding stables. During heavy rains in the summer of 1916, the area experienced flooding and a dam gave way, emptying Lake Toxaway completely. Armstrong’s estate and the Inn held fast, but with no lake, the area soon lost its appeal for the vacationing jet set. This event eventually led to the demise of The Toxaway Inn, which stood empty for 30 years before being demolished in 1948. Ms. Armstrong remained captivated by the area, took up permanent residence at her estate, and lived long enough to see her dream realized when the lake was restored to its original beauty in the 1960s. After her death in 1970, Ms. Armstrong’s estate was transformed into The Greystone Inn, the crown jewel of the Lake Toxaway community.

Vacationing families, young professionals, and empty nesters continue to be drawn to the area just as Jennings and Armstrong once were. Today, Lake Toxaway Estates is the largest community on the lake, made up of a network of individual neighborhoods and outstanding amenities. Amenities at this premier vacation home destination include access to the state’s largest private lake, as well as the highly revered Lake Toxaway Country Club, featuring fine dining, tennis, swimming, fitness center, and golf on an 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Kris Spence.

Silver Creek Real Estate Group invites you to follow in the footsteps of visionaries Jennings and Armstrong and begin building your legacy on Lake Toxaway. We are pleased to debut a delightful 1+-acre lot that features a rich bounty of Carolina hardwoods, gently rolling hills and breath-taking views of the lake and the mountains beyond. An incredible value at just $179,000, Silver Creek brokers are happy to match you with the ideal team of architects and builders to help you realize your vision of the perfect mountain retreat to fit your family’s distinctive needs and personalities. Just think – within weeks, you could begin breaking ground on a one-of-a-kind “legacy” home, a cherished heirloom property that you can enjoy with your family, then pass down from generation to generation. To become truly inspired, we invite you to join us for a personalized tour of the home site and community. Call us TODAY at 828-743-1999 or e-mail us at to schedule your tour or request more information on this or other terrific lots available for purchase along the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau.
