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).

UNRESTRICTED OLD HOMESTEAD GARDENING/PASTURE/WOODED LAND. Very Private. Keep wooded or clear trees for a GREAT VIEW. Most of pasture land needs to be re-logged and/or cleared but potential is still there - and some area remains cleared. See contour map. Two branches fork at the boundary between adjoining 12.03 land. Old pasture land nestled between the two branches. Most of both branches are on this acreage. About two decades ago owner traced the path of the two creek branches & marked where he found 3 different springs feeding the branches. One of these has a spring system (including an old box) that leads (led?) down to the adjoining acreage (north) home's outside spigot so their garden could be watered without using (old) house spring system. This is such a beautiful unrestricted lot - very private, view, mini-farm potential. Combine with additional adjoining 18+ acre portion of this old 100 acre homestead (MLS 26001933) and 2.04 acreage (MLS 26002629) for 27+ acre total at a dramatically reduced total price. NO STEEP SLOPE ORDINANCE RESTRICTIONS. 15 minutes to Sylva/Dillsboro, Franklin. 1/2 hour to Cherokee. 3 hours to Atlanta.
