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).

Rustic antique Log Cabin on 12+ acres of useable land - some is cleared and pasture and remainder is woodland which goes to the top of the ridge with two BOLD Streams which unite just past the cabin. Mountain VIEWS from the woodlands.. The architecture is extremely attractive for such an old structure with high vaulted ceilings, stone fireplace, wrap around porch, and wood floors. Nothing about this historic cabin fits the check boxes in MLS... like a hunting/fishing cabin.. Large wood stove for heat. Part of the bathroom is in one area and tub is separate... a newer section of the house is perfect for the kitchen but the existing kitchen is primitive.. There is a 532 SF large room that is almost finished with big windows and wood floors with a cellar beneath that can accomodate the washer and dryer.. There are areas that are in need of shoring up.. water is mountain spring water.. there is no info on septic.. The hiking trail to access the woodland crosses over an old wooden bridge
