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).

This beautiful home has such visual and historic appeal. For over a century it has overlooked and been a part of the day to day life of Main Street Sylva. The newly renovated Old Courthouse/Library is but a few short steps from your door. Walk from the Library down the steps to everything Main Street Sylva has to offer. The ground floor master suite and bathroom have both been updated. The rooms upstairs are all large with additional storage and closet space. The Cherry wood paneled study/library with the gas log fireplace would be my room of choice in cooler weather as compared to the large screened porch with views all the way to the Blue Ridge Parkway in summer. The original Oak and Heartpine floors are beautiful. Much could be said about the appeal and comforts of this home but the view down Main Street Sylva and up into the the entire Balsam Range make it a home and location that can not be matched anywhere else in the county.
