Why You'll Love It

Look out over the clouds from Distant Ridge Cottage at 6000 ft elevation while enjoying the cool mountain breeze. 

This south-facing ~15 acre property sits on the same ridgeline as and looks out on nearby Waterrock Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Located on Mount Lyn Lowry near the town of Balsam, the property has long-range layered mountain views of the Pisgah National Forest and Blue Ridge Mountains. Vegetation unique to high elevation forests abounds. Borders US forest land to the north and NC Conservation Trust land to the south.

Temperatures at this height are comfortable when they may be sweltering down the mountain or further south.

Located within the gated community of High Mountain, the cottage has a large deck looking out over the mountains. On this parcel, you own your view so it is possible to clear some of the trees to expand the view from the deck. There is nice stone work on the deck, house corners, and inside fireplace. An additional build site is available to the west of the cottage.

An additional 9 acres adjoining is also available. See listing Highest Elevation Tract (MLS 32109-18005).
