Property Description

In a distinguished class all its own. Architect Mark Paullin created this masterpiece in Balsam Mountain Preserve (BMP). Expansive views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are unparalleled.

BMP club membership is available offering a championship Arnold Palmer Signature golf course, Equestrian & Hiking Trails, Wellness/Fitness/Tennis Center & a Restaurant. Balsam Mountain Preserve is A Destination. A Lifestyle, A State of Mind. Conveniently, it is a scenic 40-minute jaunt from Asheville. In terms of accolades, BMP has the lowest density while being the most tastefully appointed private community in the Carolinas. The cool elevations approach 4600 feet. From the home, you can hike to Double Top at 5400 Elevation which has an observation tower to enjoy the views. There are 34+ miles of hiking & equestrian trails along with people who share a deep & abiding commitment to the natural world. Not all private gated communities are created equal. For your discerning clients, in order to capture the essence of BMP, please do peek at the following website: The amenities are jaw-dropping and for those who love to golf - thanks to the championship Arnold Palmer Signature golf course - the word is "nirvana."
