Dry Creek – Rustic Luxury Real Estate Lake James
With the new and changing vision for Lake James emerging, new community plans have come about. One result is Dry Creek, two additional phases of the original Southpointe community, which opened in 2005. Dry Creek features larger, wooded homesites, community parks and walking trails. As few trees as possible are disturbed for construction of the wood and stone structures. Dry Creek residents also share the Southpointe amenities of a pool, clubhouse and community boat slips. This community is located adjacent to Southpointe on the northeast end of the lake approximately 10 miles from Morganton.
Dry Creek at SouthPointe spans 400 acres in western North Carolina. Then the pristine vantage spans far-reaching vistas across Lake James and the Blue Ridge Mountains. A matchless setting is near Linville Gorge and Pisgah National Forest. The rustic luxury neighborhood features 64 large lots ranging up to 10 acres, including family compounds, and lake amenities. Covenants endeavor to preserve the awesome natural habitat on the northeast end of Lake James.
Historic Morganton, a beautiful small town offering shopping, dining, culture, services, and activities, is 10 miles east of Dry Creek and Lake James. The closest commercial airports are in Asheville and Charlotte.
