Pisgah Preserve at Lake James
As the name suggests, Pisgah Preserve is a large community of over 400 acres north of Lake James and bordering on the Pisgah National Forest. Lots in this lovely wooded preserve community range from one to six acres. Beautiful views of Shortoff Mountain, Mt. Mitchell, Dobson’s Knob and the treetops of the Blue Ridge can be seen from just about anywhere in the neighborhood. Amenities abound, including a trail system connecting Pisgah Preserve to the adjacent National Forest, a reading cabin, picnic shelters, fireplace and barbeque grills, playgrounds and over 115 acres of open space. Phase I opened in late 2005.
Seemingly a world away, the rustic Pisgah Preserve North Carolina mountain real estate is designed to be a family retreat. Pisgah Preserve is “a community created in harmony with nature.”
Across from Lake James, the gated master-planned community spans over 480 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Here lies Pisgah National Forest, with Linville Gorge and Lake James a trail away.
Yet shopping, dining, and culture are an easy 15-25 minutes away in the charming towns of Morganton and Marion.
