“I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore…
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.”
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

For centuries, families have been drawn to lakeside resorts all along the Eastern United States. Some have answered the lake’s call year after year, unable to resist the promise of long lazy days by her shores or afternoons filled with adventure out on her waters. There is perhaps no sight more stirring than the setting sun over a mountain lake – it is a symphony of color and light, as the clouds, mountains and trees fight to show their reflection in the glassy surface until nightfall when the stars make it difficult to determine where the Earth ends and the Heavens begin. Poets and painters have long struggled to illustrate through words and art the draw and beauty of a lake – it is something you must see, must experience yourself to truly understand. Many fall so deeply in love with the feel of their feet dangling over a lakeside dock, the ongoing struggle to perfect their technique of skipping stones, and the tranquil sight of the sunrise over water that they move here – either year-round or seasonally.

Lake Glenville

Arguably one of the most beautiful lakes in North Carolina, Lake Glenville offers its fair share of glorious scenery and prestigious communities. With a surface area of over 1,400 acres and 26 miles of shoreline, Lake Glenville draws visitors from all over the Southeast to its pristine waters and glorious scenery. Set at an elevation of 3,492 feet above sea level, Lake Glenville has the distinction of being the highest lake east of the Mississippi – a perk that provides pleasant climates year round, as well as incredible views of the lake, mountains, forest and waterfalls that are common in the region. Lake Glenville is located in close proximity to the historic resort village of Cashiers, providing its residents with an opportunity to shop and dine to their heart’s content. Homes on Lake Glenville provide the best of both worlds – waterfront home combined with mountain home. A handful of Glenville communities provide a country club environment, all of which celebrate the natural beauty of the region. Whether fishing, boating or swimming in this extraordinary lake, once you set foot in Lake Glenville, gently stirring her glassy surface, you’ll feel a stirring in your own heart. This feeling keeps visitors returning year after year, as they continue to build upon their special memories of days spent at the lake. This summer, Silver Creek Real Estate Group invites you and your family to join them.

Silver Creek’s brokers are resident authorities on luxury lakefront homes.  Our seasoned brokers highly recommend the following lakeside communities and subdivisions:

Glenshore – One of the more established lakefront subdivisions on Lake Glenville, Glenshore is a gated community featuring some of the most beautiful multi-million dollar homes in the area. Many are designed and constructed by local custom home builders, and adhere to strict architectural guidelines intended to complement the pristine natural setting. Each home site is individual, offering unique perspectives of the lake, forest, mountains or all of the above. Glenshore on Lake Glenville offers its residents all of the pleasures the lake has to offer – boating, waterskiing, jet skiing, swimming, fishing and more.

Summer Hill – A prestigious gated community on Lake Glenville, Summer Hill encompasses 76 acres of custom-built luxury homes, heavily forested homesites, and waterfront lots. Community amenities include a lovely lakefront pavilion, marina and tennis courts. Summer Hill residents enjoy easy access to all of Lake Glenville’s recreational activities – they can either do them all or do nothing at all and just kick back and RELAX.  View homes for sale in Summer Hill.

Stillpoint – Representing the epitome of luxury mountain and lakefront living, Stillpoint on Lake Glenville offers its residents a rich blend of pristine natural beauty with modern conveniences, including underground utilities, paved roads, and community water. The community’s close proximity to the popular resort villages of Cashiers and Highlands provides Stillpoint residents with easy access to family-friendly amenities, unique shops, fine dining and cultural arts. This well-established gated community features estate-sized lots and some of Western North Carolina’s most distinctive homes, custom-designed by a handful of the area’s finest builders. All Stillpoint homes adhere to strict architectural guidelines in order to both complement and preserve the natural splendor that sets this stunning waterfront community apart. In an ongoing effort to safeguard the original character of Stillpoint and protect the land for future generations, the development has taken great care to put certain deed restrictions in place. All homes and home sites in Stillpoint offer lake access, many with lake frontage or lake views. View homes for sale in Stillpoint.

Trillium Links & Lake Club – True to its credo – “Where Families Belong” – Trillium is among the most exciting, family-friendly properties on the lake. Striking homes featuring Arts and Crafts and Adirondack style architecture line the community’s streets, showcasing special characteristics such as stone and timber accents, poplar bark siding and exposed beams. Each home is designed to exist in harmony with the awesome show of nature that can be found throughout Trillium. The award-winning 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Morris Hatalsky, is as challenging as it is beautiful. Clinics and private lessons are available with the full-time pro on site. The less challenging par three Garden Golf course is a terrific amenity the entire family can enjoy without the worry of tee times and scorecards. A day of fishing in any one of Trillium’s stocked ponds, picnicking at the Lakeside Pavilion or playing a game of croquet on the Arbor Lawn will bring new meaning to the word “carefree.”

Trillium Entrance

Set at the heart of the community, Trillium’s clubhouse is an architectural masterpiece, combining mountain laurel accents with dry stacked stoned for an inspired gathering place that gives the feel of luxury housed within an old, rustic lodge. The clubhouse is an integral part of life at Trillium, offering residents casual dining in the Grille Room overlooking the 18th fairway, a wrap-around porch for world-class dining with a view and an expansive lawn for hosting special community events on holidays like Easter, Fourth of July and Labor Day. Gourmet dining is also available at The Landings, set at the tip of Lake Glenville, with opportunities for a romantic view of the sunset and dinner by candlelight.
Apple Orchard Park is Trillium’s wildly popular fitness and wellness center, boasting three indoor clay tennis courts and state-of-the-art fitness equipment, as well as services like fitness classes and spa treatments. Trillium has a fleet of boats available for rental – canoes, kayaks, fishing boats, deck boats, runabouts and pontoons. Water ski equipment and other water sport items are also available to rent. A short drive to nearby Cashiers provides family members with a fun-filled day of shopping and strolling the streets of an historic resort village. There is no shortage to the number of adventures a family can have while living at Trillium.

Silver Creek Real Estate Group is proud to represent two very special properties in this fine community. The first is a charming 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom Trillium home with rocking chair porch overlooking a nature preserve. The interior of this delightful dollhouse with the heart of an estate features a gourmet kitchen, dual-sided fireplace, coffered wood ceilings and other luxury touches. This cozy home is offered at $425,000. The second home in our inventory is a timeless 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom farmhouse-inspired cottage at the heart of Trillium Village. Its expansive wrap-around porch beckons guests to come and “sit a spell”. The cozy interior features soaring wood ceilings, a striking floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and an incredible master retreat. This true Southern Charmer is offered at $455,000.

The Lake Club -Nestled on 150 acres along the shoreline of Lake Glenville near the resort village of Cashiers, North Carolina, this private community offers the very best of mountain and lakefront living. Touted as “a place where memories are created and traditions continue to grow”, The Lake Club is a very special family-focused development featuring 36 estate-sized home sites and a quaint cottage division. Special attention and careful planning have been given to the architectural and environmental covenants within this exclusive gated community in order to preserve and celebrate the pristine natural setting. One of the finest examples of this concentration toward marrying architecture to its environment is found in The Lake Club Lodge. Exquisitely designed by renowned architect Tom Greene and Associates to be reminiscent of an Adirondack camp from a bygone era, The Lodge features native poplar bark, locust wood and stone accents. This well-appointed clubhouse is an ideal place where friends and neighbors can gather together near the stacked stone fireplace or enjoy breathtaking views from one of many covered porches. Another popular Lake Club amenity, The Marina, is not just a place where homeowners can park their boats; it also offers a generous sundeck to soak up the sun on large Adirondack chairs and an enclosed swimming area, safe from passing motor boats and jet skis. In addition, The Lake Club Meadow is a two-acre park set at the heart of the community where neighbors can play a game of horseshoes or warm themselves by a bonfire under a sea of stars on a cool fall evening. The Meadow also offers many beautiful natural features, ideal for strolling or splashing – including streams, three ponds and hiking trails along a cascading waterfall.  View homes for sale in The Lake Club.

Stonebridge – One of Lake Glenville’s most exclusive neighborhoods, Stonebridge is comprised of just eight home sites – many offering stunning views of the sun rising over the lake and as much as 300 feet of deep water along the shoreline. This distinctive waterfront enclave contains multi-million dollar custom homes designed by some of the Carolinas’ finest architects, each shrouded by a thick canopy of hardwoods for added privacy and truly natural beauty. Whether looking out at the lake from an expansive rear deck, or looking up at the homes of Stonebridge from your boat on the water, the view will not disappoint! View land for sale in Stonebridge.

Summer Cove – Located in a peaceful cove of Lake Glenville, the new Summer Cove community is comprised of 24 lovely acres of tree-laden lots with some along the shoreline. The community is accessed by way of Pine Creek Road at the north end of Lake Glenville. A charming drive through the magnificently maintained Black Angus Farm leads visitors to the entrance of Summer Cove. Proximity to the renowned towns of Highlands and Cashiers, oversized lots and the quiet cove location make this a highly desirable real estate opportunity. Best of all, Summer Cove offers its residents all of the pleasures Lake Glenville has to offer – boating, waterskiing, jet skiing, swimming, fishing and more. View homes for sale in Summer Cove.

Share the peace and tranquility of life beside a mountain lake with the ones you love. This home is extremely well-priced at just $799,000. The second property is an amazing 1 acre lot in The Point at Glenville Lake with its own private well and highly sought-after deeded dock.

Silver Creek Can Help You Find the Silver Lining in Today’s Economic Cloud

From our mild climates, to our signature brand of Southern Hospitality – they say nothing much changes in Cashiers! For well over a century, families have been flocking to our mountaintop resort village and surrounding area to escape the day-to-day worries of life “off the mountain.” Year-round residents have lived in a virtual bubble from the tumultuous state of today’s national economy. It wasn’t until recently that we started to witness an occasional foreclosure hit the local market. Whatever the reason – from a summertime resident having to tighten their belt, to a builder or developer getting in over their head – the dedicated team at Silver Creek Real Estate Group can help you find the silver lining in what may have become someone else’s unexpected cloud.

The talented brokers at Silver Creek take great pride in staying on top of the local market, while always keeping an eye on national trends. All across the United States, wise investors have been able to take advantage of foreclosures and a beleaguered housing market – allowing them to purchase far more property than they may have been able to just a year or two before. Many pundits would argue that the downward trend in the housing market will soon come to an end, and it won’t be long before we hit the ground and prices bounce back to where they should be. Don’t wait until it’s too late! If you have the investment dollars to spend, this is an amazing time to purchase a foreclosed property along the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau.

Currently, we have foreclosed homes and lots available for purchase in such sought-after communities as Cullasaja Cove, Highlands Club, Mountaintop Golf Club, Big Sheepcliff and Trillium – many homes starting as low as $500,000. Our team is also tracking pending foreclosures and homes scheduled for auction to help our clients get a jump on some of the very best investments. For larger investors and developers, we have bulk lots and existing subdivisions for sale.

If you are seeking real estate in Cashiers, Highlands, Sapphire or the Glenville area of Western North Carolina – you may want to seriously consider a foreclosure property. For those interested in compiling more information or scheduling a tour of foreclosure properties in the area, I invite you to call the Silver Creek offices at 828.743.1999 or e-mail me, Jochen Lucke – Silver Creek owner and broker – at jlucke@ncliving.com. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
