Real Estate in Sylva - Homes For Sale

What draws people to the Sylva area when buying a home? Less than 50 miles from the “big city” of Asheville, Sylva feels like a hidden gem in the middle of the mountains. From gorgeous vistas that include waterfalls and lakes, to microbreweries and bookstores, people who want the good life — minus the crowds — look to this Jackson County town to provide it.

Just six miles from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, Sylva serves as something of an unofficial downtown for college students looking for good eats and a break from the campus. (We recommend Lulus on Main for atmosphere and eclectic menu choices, or Guadalupe for farm-to-table tropical/Hispanic deliciousness.)

In addition to the nearby university, Sylva is home to more than half of the schools in the Jackson County Public School system, including Jackson County Early College for students who want to earn a two-year college degree concurrently with their high school diploma, and award-winning Scotts Creek Elementary. Southwestern Community College also serves local students with nearly 100 credential options in more than 44 programs of study, such as Accounting, Nursing, and Early Childhood Education.

Need some pampering — or a workout? Be sure to check out Fusions Spa and Wellness on Main Street. Or, if live music and house-made beer is more your style, Innovation Brewing carries more than 30 local brews and a band every Saturday.

One of the biggest reasons people love living in Sylva is the easy access to a wide variety of outdoor activities. Whitewater rafting, hiking, fishing and bird-watching are just a few of the many ways that residents stay active while appreciating the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. And, if their adventures take them a little farther away, there are five regional airports within 130 miles; Asheville Regional Airport is the closest (55 miles).

Beautiful, old homestead in the Fisher Creek community with one of the prettiest settings I have seen in a long time. This property has been in the same family for over 100 yrs.Most of the land is flat to gentle rolling, partially open and partially wooded with nice mature shade trees. Spring flowers blooming everywhere.There have been many cows, horses, chickens and goats raised on this land over the years along with numerous vegetable and flower gardens! Property is unrestricted so you can easily make your own homestead again or mini farm.Small stream runs through the back portion and there is a small piece of land across the road that boarders Fisher Creek(designated "NC Trout Creek").There is also a barn that we think at least dates back 80+ years! Old farmhouse (1919) is there but is of no value! Easy access right off the state maintained road..Only 3.5 miles to town!....Not many pieces of land like this left in the area, A must see!!!!
