Balsam Mountain Preserve gated mountain Community
Balsam Mountain Preserve
The lowest density master planned Club community in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Balsam Mountain Preserve offers a way of life that is unique, special, and authentic. Only 354 homesites will nestle into this 4,400-acre community, an average of one home for every 12 acres. Created with a commitment to preserve its natural surroundings, 3,000 acres, or 68% of the community, has been placed in a permanent conservation easement, ensuring it will never be developed and will always remain for future generations in its present park-like state. Even more impressive, the non-profit Balsam Mountain Trust, with three full-time naturalists located on the Preserve, manages and cares for the 3,000 acres of protected land. The naturalists also offer multi-generational nature and environmental programming unmatched by any community in the Southeast. In addition to all the wonders of nature, Club Members enjoy Arnold Palmer Signature golf, an Equestrian Center, swim/tennis/fitness, fine dining, 34 miles of trails, 38 miles of streams (including a Class A North Carolina trout stream, a private family campground, and a 24 hour staffed gatehouse.) The selection of real estate offerings include mountain view homesites, completed Featured Builder homes, and a very special fractional ownership component that is limited to only 40 families.
