Tips for finding luxury North Carolina Mountain Real Estate


Some tips for finding the best Luxury North Carolina Mountain Real Estate:

Before you travel, search the internet, look for design ideas on building your luxury mountain cabin or find the best luxury North Carolina mountain properties. Most luxury communities are located in the high elevation areas Cashiers, Lake Glenville and Highlands areas of NC

If you are looking for a pre-existing home, as you travel through the many mountain communities you’ll notice there may not be any for sale signs as they are not allowed in most developments. You’ll want to engage the services of a Buyer’s Agent Realtor who will have access to the local MLS home searches. You probably will want to contact a Realtor in advance, as October is one of the busiest times of the year. Let them know what you are looking for so they will have time to prepare a list especially for you and your particular criteria.

TIGER VS. PHIL

View from Sapphire Lakes Golf Course
North Carolina

Found this on the web and thought I'd post for those of you who like golfing.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson might be rivals in golf course design, too.

Mickelson announced Wednesday that the first project of his new design company will be River Rock Golf Club in Cashiers, N.C., about 90 minutes away from where Woods' company is building its first U.S. golf course.

Phil Mickelson Design was launched in January. Its first golf course, built along the Blue Ridge Mountains, is scheduled to open in 2010. Among its features are a 305-yard par 3 with a 65-foot drop to the green and a 180-degree view of the mountains; a par 4 at 343 yards that drops 100 feet to the green; and two fairways that cross one another.

"My commitment to golf is creating the highest quality golf courses that are challenging, engaging and always provide a truly enjoyable experience each time they are played," Mickelson said. "To do that, you need to find the most beautiful landscapes available. We've done that in the mountains of North Carolina."

When will the leaves change in Western North Carolina?

2007 Fall Color Preview
There's no doubt that the fall is the best time of year to visit the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.

What is it that we will need in the coming weeks/months to have great color this year? As in any year, lead color change in our deciduous trees is best when days are sunny, nights are cool, no major stormy weather blows through to strip off foliage, and the soil moisture levels are sufficient to keep trees in a healthy condition. At the time when chlorophyll (green pigment) in the tree’s leaves is diminishing and other pigments are coming to view, weather that is cloudy, wet, or warm will slow or hinder this process, and colors may be drab or non-existent.

Freezing weather, winds and storms can take away foliage before the color change is complete. Very warm weather may cause foliage to stay green longer, and extremely dry conditions will hasten the withering or curling of foliage without much color change. All these environmental factors can come and go during the summer months without affecting the fall color, but what is happening during the weeks of chlorophyll shutdown are the factors of importance.
Predicting fall color is essentially predicting which climatic factor will persist or change during the time of mid-September through October, when the color change really begins.
You can check here for updates from September to mid-November for the latest observations - The Foliage Network -
Because there has been a lack of rain in 2008 we are expecting a short leaf season in early October in the Cashiers, Highlands NC area.
