The rock face at Lonesome Valley

The rock face at Lonesome Valley

With a history dating back to 1895, Lonesome Valley has served as a bastion to “the great outdoors” ever since Pittsburg entrepreneur and visionary E.H. Jennings first acquired 35,000 acres near the sleepy village of Cashiers. While Mr. Jennings is responsible for developing one of Western North Carolina’s most popular resort destinations, he chose to preserve Lonesome Valley as a special place to share with his friends and family. Gracefully spanning the valley floor of the largest box canyon east of the Rockies, Lonesome Valley is said by many to be the place where Heaven and Earth meet. For more than a century, the Jennings family has continued to take great care to maintain the history and natural beauty of this unique mountain treasure.

Carefully developed in accordance with the Jennings family’s wishes, amenities and homes within this stunning community complement the natural beauty of the area. Lonesome Valley has quickly become one of Cashiers’ most sought after developments. Cottage and home designs pay homage to the Southern Appalachian farmhouses of a bygone era. Dining within the community highlights Southern cuisine made with fresh produce grown in the Valley. The Canyon Kitchen is currently open for the season on Thursdays through Sundays, and features the culinary talents of Chef John Fleer (formerly of the renowned Blackberry Farm in Tennessee). The Canyon Kitchen is located inside Jennings Barn at the heart of the Lonesome Valley community, and reservations are recommended.

Silver Creek Real Estate Group is proud to announce that we are now highlighting several incredible homes and amazing lots available for purchase in Lonesome Valley on our website. A handful of new-construction cabins, cottages and homes are available for immediate move-in, or select your own view from a series of incredible home sites currently being offered.

Created in the spirit of the life’s work of famed conservationist, Gifford Pinchot, this unique 350 acre community is a self-proclaimed “Mountain Meadowland.” Dedicated to preserving the timeless natural beauty that has become synonymous with Western North Carolina, Pinchot was master planned by renowned Carolina designers Seamon Whiteside + Associates – the same “green approach” developers responsible for such groundbreaking communities as the award-winning I’On in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. At an elevation of 4,100 feet above sea level, nature lovers will revel in Pinchot’s peaceful surroundings and the magnificent vistas that abound throughout the community – blue skies, green trees and the graceful rolling hillsides of the Blue Ridge Mountains as far as the eye can see.

Conveniently located just off Highway 107 north of the Cashiers Crossroads, Pinchot offers its residents striking multi-million dollar residences designed to complement the beautiful natural setting – as well as estate-sized home sites ranging in size from two to fourteen acres. This highly sought after gated development features several meadows, tennis facilities and a common outdoor fireplace with simply stunning views of the village of Cashiers and the surrounding mountains. Pinchot’s Whiteside Overlook serves as a popular community summerhouse overlooking beautiful Whiteside Mountain – the perfect spot for a summer barbeque or a marshmallow roast under a starry sky. The community provides easy access to boating and water sports at Lake Glenville, and many properties in Pinchot include membership at Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club (upon applicant approval).

Foreclosures in Cashiers and Highlands

Even with the residential real estate market being fairly stable in our area, we are not immune to foreclosures. These properties are few in number and represent a good price entry point. In some cases we receive the information from the banks before the properties are available to the general market, which gives our clients a competitive advantage. If you are interested in receiving information on these properties, please email Jochen Lucke at jlucke@ncliving.com or call 828-743-1999.
