Real Estate Opportunities Abound in This “Civilized Wilderness”
People are drawn to the Blue Ridge Mountains and, more specifically, Western North Carolina for a wide variety of reasons. Some come for the beautiful change of seasons and the temperate year-round climates. Some come for the majestic views and awesome display of natural splendor. Some come for the peace and quiet that only a mountain retreat can provide. Still others come with a sense of adventure, ready to take on all of the fun and exciting challenges that Mother Nature has to dish out. Residents of Sapphire, North Carolina’s Bald Rock Community are afforded front-row seats to each of these elements – no matter what may have first drawn them here.
A self-described “civilized wilderness,” this 776-acre private gated community prides itself in combining luxury mountain living on estate-sized lots with the magnificence of a beautiful and unspoiled natural setting. Bald Rock is located adjacent to the U.S. Forest Services’ Panthertown Valley, providing 6,700 acres of preserved forests, a rare Appalachian bog, 20 miles of trout streams, waterfalls, and miles of walking trails offering plenty of opportunities for hiking and exploring. The brainchild of Westmark Development, Bald Rock’s home sites in vary in size from three to an astounding twelve acres, and offer incredible views of the valley, the forest and the mountains beyond. The community features an equestrian center, stables, riding arena and a network of trails for sightseeing by horseback. In addition, residents of Bald Rock have access to all of the resort-quality amenities available through Wyndham at Fairfield’s Sapphire Valley Resort. These amenities include the 50-acre Sapphire Lake, the 18-hole PGA Sapphire National Golf Course, 9-hole golf course, one indoor and two outdoor swimming pools, ten tennis courts, health club with state-of-the-art fitness equipment, boating and fishing on the lake, horseback riding, game room, massage services, miniature golf and more.
