Real Estate in Whittier - Homes For Sale

Originally founded in 1907 as a depot town, Whittier maintains its quaint, charming nature today. Particularly popular with vacationers looking for a quiet mountain retreat, one of Whittier’s primary industries is tourism, from vacation rentals to water sports.

If you want to experience more of the great outdoors, you won’t be disappointed by life in Whittier. While there’s no shortage of tour operators who can get you out there, there are two in Whittier itself who can show you what the Tuckasegee River has to offer: Smoky Mountain River Adventures and Tuckasegee Outfitters.

Despite its small-town character, Whittier is also home to two highly-rated golf courses, Sequoyah National Golf Club, owned by the Eastern Band of the Cherokee, and the Smoky Mountain Country Club. The latter course is part of the town’s most exclusive residential development, consisting of 250 luxury homes and condominiums and all of the recreational amenities one would expect from a premier community: swimming pool and spa, tennis courts, dining at The Persimmon Grille, and much more.

And, if you need a break from the laid-back life and need something more big-city, Asheville is a short one-hour drive away. Closer by in Cullowhee, you’ll find award-winning Western Carolina University with a host of events, museums, and much more — all open to the public, not just students and faculty. Also in Jackson County is Sylva, which serves as the 'home away from home' for many of WCU’s students; there you’ll find cute cafés, a variety of dining options, and a number of retailers from bookstores to antiques.
