The Preserve at Little Pine

The Preserve at Little Pine
Take time to live


Quietly resting in the heart of the North Carolina Mountains is a land…a place patiently waiting for those who need its healing power…a place where your back yard is a massive wonder-filled world where serenity and absolute awe compete…a place where miles and miles of pristine land just wait to be explored…

This is The Preserve at Little Pine, a new way of living in harmony with nature. The Preserve at Little Pine lets you build a home surrounded by acres of pristine mountain wilderness.

This special place is not for everyone. It is for those who choose a different path than most; those who desire a pure mountain living experience; where traffic may be several wild turkeys or deer crossing the road, and where the noise in your ears becomes the sounds of silence…of nature, birds, breezes…of laughter.

You're guaranteed this land will never be developed because it's held in an eternal land trust. Without the expense of owning the common trust land, you and a few neighbors have complete use of it for hiking, horseback riding and enjoying the great outdoors. Situated at 4200 feet atop Grassland Mountain, The Mountain Lodge is currently under construction with a projected completion date of fall 2008. Also under construction is the fully staffed Equestrian Center and Astronomy Center

Just minutes from The Preserve at Little Pine you’ll discover Hot Springs, which was named for the natural mineral springs flowing underground. Set aside an afternoon for a relaxing dip in the healing waters, and then spend the evening visiting the shops and restaurants downtown.Just down the road lies Weaverville and Marshall, each possessing the small town charms of a by-gone era. And only 35 minutes away is the city of Asheville, called The Paris of the South. With all its music, fine dining, culture and unending supply of festivals, there’s always something fun to explore.
