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. Created with a commitment to preserve its natural surroundings, 3,400 acres has been placed in a permanent conservation easement, ensuring the property will be protected from future development and remain for generations to come 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 facility, a heated Junior Olympic pool, Har-Tru tennis courts, a fitness center, on-site dining, over 30 miles of private trails, 38 miles of streams (including a Class A North Carolina trout stream), a private family campground, and a 24 hour staffed entry. The selection of real estate offerings includes mountain view homesites, private resale homes, and a very special fractional ownership component that serves as a financially intelligent entry point into the community. And coming this summer, Balsam will introduce a new Golf Cottage Collection featuring luxurious homes with smaller footprints starting in the $700s.

All this just ten minutes or less to the beautiful mountain towns of Waynesville and Sylva, providing residents with the ultimate combination of mountain seclusion and nearby modern conveniences.

Resident Testimonials

Balsam Mountain Preserve provides me the type of lifestyle that brings me great joy. – Andie MacDowell, Actress and Balsam Mountain Preserve property owner

“We had been looking for a place in the mountains for over three years, and visited just about every community imaginable. After 15 minutes, we knew we were home” – Bill and Ohara Croswell, Ridgeland, Mississippi

“We decided to make Balsam our home because of the low-density lifestyle; we’re living in a 3,000 acre park. The peace and tranquility here top anything I’ve ever imagined.  At times it’s like living in an aviary; the birds surround us in the treetop canopy. At night I fall asleep listening to the stream and the tree frogs.” – Lisa and Sal Guerriero, Norristown, Pennsylvania

“Balsam gets me closer to the woods to walk through, the fish to go after, and the big night sky to gaze at, a wonderful combination that renews my sense of awe at the wonder of it all.” – David Kitchens, Atlanta, Georgia
