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).

Don't let the name of the road scare you off! The drive to this lot is very reasonable, the road gets steeper up past this location. :-) Greens Creek is conveniently located just 4 miles south of Dillsboro so commuting to anything in Jackson County would be fairly easy. Lots of good things to talk about with this property. There are actually two lots, a 2BR septic is installed on the lower lot and a 3BR septic on the upper lot. No well has been installed but the seller did have the property "witched" for water with positive results and the neighboring properties have excellent producing wells. Both lots have had driveways cleared into them with house sites dozed out. Lower lot has a large gabion basket retaining wall installed. Build houses on both or build on one and possibly consider the other for a workshop, guest house or RV pad. Nice seasonal views, lush plant life and some much appreciated peace and quiet for no additional charge! Road is maintained by the neighbors and is in good shape.
