Property at Garnet Ridge Preserve

Each homesite at Garnet Ridge Preserve enjoys pristine mountain views of the Nantahala National Forest, a feat easily achieved thanks to an elevation within the community that ranges between 3,200 and 3,800 feet. Lots range from a half-acre to over three acers in size. The majority of our lots provide building sites that are gently sloping, thereby providing easy access to build upon, and wonderful landscaping opportunities.
