Highly Attractive Developer Opportunities Can be Found in Two Bank-owned Properties in Western North Carolina

Most really great concepts start very small.  In this modern world we live in, where people are divided into groups of leaders and followers – those with a keen business sense and bold entrepreneurial spirit always seem to land on top. While others may wait for the pundits to tell them when and where to invest their money, the leaders among us choose to forge ahead boldly on instinct – refreshingly self-assured and completely unafraid. Sometimes, all they need is that next great idea. Attention developers, Silver Creek Real Estate Group  may very well hold the key to your next real estate investment.

Bridge Creek Community

Silver Creek is currently representing two incredible bank-owned bulk sale opportunities in the resort town of Highlands and the historic village of Cashiers high atop the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Both hold great promise, and is in need of a developer with vision. The first property is the Bridge Creek Development which encompasses approximately 91pristine acres off North Norton in Cashiers.  Its current list price of $2,555,000 is based upon the most recent appraisal value, however all offers are welcome. This beautiful parcel of land is packed full of character and already contains the makings of an awesome community with existing infrastructure that includes a gated entrance and charming covered bridge that bid welcome to future residents, as well as paved roads, underground utilities, a chimney garden, and 2 ponds.

Woodland Ridge in Highlands NC

The second locale is in the popular vacation destination of Highlands. Located within the Woodland Ridge Community across the street from the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital, there are 10 lots being offered for bulk sale – representing an excellent investment opportunity for a savvy developer or builder. Already extremely well-priced at just $518,000 – potential buyers are encouraged to bring all offers. Woodland Ridge boasts a picnic pavilion, a number of lots with excellent mountain views, and close proximity to many of Highlands’ well-revered country clubs and golf courses.

To learn more about either of these development prospects or to schedule a tour of the properties and surrounding communities, we encourage you to contact Jochen Lucke – owner of Silver Creek Real Estate Group. Jochen invites you to call him at 828.743.1999, e-mail his at, or drop by the Silver Creek Offices in the Shoppes at CreekSide in the heart of Cashiers. Unless you plan to build on the properties yourself or have an established relationship with a local builder, Jochen can also happily arrange for you to meet some of the area’s finest builders who can help take your vision of a sublime mountain community to an entirely new level.  Jochen looks forward to hearing from you soon!
