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.

This is about the last opportunity for an inexpensive creek front lot near highway 74. It will be a cleaning/scrap project and there are things to figure out with the bridge, septic etc. But, how else can you get creek frontage without going to the end of no-where. Opportunity to fish Conleys creek from the yard and walk to the Tuck to fish there. Working out of town? Okay, you can be on 74 in about 3 minutes and on your way. This is a flood zone lot, the existing structure needs to come down and new place should go up there on the hill. County needs to look into septic, some resurfacing on the bridge... price leaves room to tackle these projects. Could be a cost effective approach to a Casino/fishing rental right on the creek. There is an upper area to build that may be a better spot, has two incredible old pines that would be neat to design around.
