Grand Highlands


Panoramic living—the best of Western Carolina in every direction.

Grand Highlands at Bearwallow Mountain sits just east of Asheville above some of the most ideal Western North Carolina towns. Hendersonville and Flat Rock offer wonderful dining and entertainment. Nearby Lake Lure has lured vacationers for generations with natural beauty and a relaxed setting. Chimney Rock State Park and the Hickory Nut Gorge are also nearby. The Rocky Broad River runs right through Chimney Rock Village, beside little shops and charming restaurants.

Life is serene in this picturesque area, and with Asheville so nearby, there’s no limit of options for shopping, arts, entertainment or a quick flight to anywhere. Of course, outdoor recreation abounds here as well.

Grand Highlands—the height of perfection.

There is something so perfect about this elevation. Above 4,000 feet can be a bit too wintery, below 3,000, a bit too warm in the summer. The average elevation at Grand Highlands is “just right” at 3,600 feet. The relatively flat terrain at this height is most unusual. The home sites have all the breathtaking beauty of the altitude, without the breath-stealing steep climbs. It’s like living in an open meadow on top of a mountain.

This community allows you to relax at your own pace and be yourself. The feeling here is laid back and genuine with neighbors appreciating the natural beauty. There’s no pretentious attitude. Family and friends flock together to enjoy 60-mile views from a community that feels more like a national park.

The impressive Grand Lodge clubhouse graces the meadow setting and is beautifully designed to complement the natural environment with stonework, hewn timbers and sweeping verandas. The uplifting, open architecture and massive fireplaces invite you to gather for conversation with friends and neighbors. Friendships come easily in this space that is at once extraordinary and inviting—a setting so special that couples select it for the most important day of their lives, their wedding.

Grand Highland’s 3,000 square foot. community barn with horse stalls, owner’s lounge, tack room and the community’s expansive fenced meadows for pasturing make this an ideal environment for horse owners and those who just enjoy watching these magnificent creatures. The barn is often the setting for casual community events and gatherings.

Perhaps the most luxurious amenity is that they are all debt-free.

All of the amenities here, including the Grand Lodge with fitness center and tennis court, are debt-free and the Homeowners’ Association dues are very reasonable. This is a community that adds precious “peace of mind” to its list of things to enjoy.

Beyond the gates, you’ll find endless options for golf, fishing, shopping and outdoor recreation. Inside the gates is blessed peace and quiet. Relax on your deck, take in the view and the calming sounds of birds, rustling leaves and a whispering breeze. Enjoy miles of walking trails through carefully preserved forests and fields. Let your mind and your feet wander, or cast a line in a pond.
