Wilkes County has been described as the perfect antidote to stress, whether you are a full-time resident or enjoy vacationing there on a regular basis. Peace and quiet are its biggest draws, and real estate options in Wilkes County are plentiful.
Here is a brief background:
This development is relatively new, and all lots and homes are beautiful. Leatherwood is one of several developments catering to the increasing number of newcomers who decide to move to Wilkes County after vacationing in the area. Lots in the 2‚500-acre development range from 3 to 40 acres‚ and many Leatherwood residents take advantage of the equestrian facilities that include a barn and riding trails. About 40 of the 110 homes in Leatherwood are available for vacation rentals.
4 Seasons Vacation Rentals
4 Seasons has 50 rental properties from which visitors can choose from luxuriously appointed chalets‚ cozy secluded cabins‚ riverside cottages and homes with long-range mountain views. The company has properties in West Jefferson, Jefferson, Boone and Blowing Rock, with most cottages located on the scenic New River.
Chestnut Mountain Farms
Those who ultimately decide to invest in this High Country lifestyle can choose from several new year-round developments. This gated community offers elegant custom homes and is in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Many hardwoods are on the property, and Chestnut Mountain Farms also has an equestrian center with a riding ring and miles of riding and hiking trails.
Rose Glen Village
Rose Glen Village is considered one of the finest senior communities in the entire Tar Heel State, with living options that include studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment homes. The facility allows residents to enjoy the activities in their day-to-day lives without having to worry about the maintenance and daily chores typically associated with home ownership.
Reynolds Blue Ridge
Another mountain-living option is Reynolds Blue Ridge, situated just six miles from both Blowing Rock and Boone. The community, which includes a golf course, is built at the famed Reynolds Plantation and offers a modern mountain lifestyle in the pristine natural surroundings of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Nature lovers may be drawn to Cielo Falls‚ which sets on 1,100 acres near the Blue Ridge Parkway. Residents have the choice of having a log or timber frame home, and a big selling point for Cielo Falls – like much of Wilkes County – is its convenient location. The gated development has a rainwater capturing system that provides pure water while reducing the reliance on natural resources.
