Wouldn’t you like your home to be a true sanctuary? Can you imagine a home nestled among tall hardwoods surrounded by scenic mountains and picturesque valleys; where the sounds are not sirens, car horns, or screeching brakes, but the sounds you hear are the ones that only nature provides, such as babbling brooks and birds singing.
A home which is not surrounded by buildings and stagnant polluted air, but by acres and acres of undeveloped land and where natural beauty is always on display; and where you’re only a few short minutes from town with access to all the modern amenities available within the city? If this is your idea of really living, you should be looking at Smoky Mountain homes!
There truly is nothing like living in the heart of nature, and Smoky Mountain homes have a lot to offer, including homes or homesites with breathtaking views and that serenity that’s hard to believe – until, that is, you experience it!
The Bryson City area offers several homes in communities with natural waterfalls, high elevations and views that seem to go on forever. There are homes in communities with lake frontage, and golf course communities, as well.
The Great Smoky Mountains are excellent for relaxing and for living a carefree, stress-free lifestyle where the quality of life is higher than most of the rest of the US with cleaner air and water quality.
Above all, the area provides the ability to “get away from it all” without being isolated. However, if you feel the need to indulge yourself in big city nightlife, you are a two hours from Knoxville, three hours from Charlotte, two hours from Atlanta, and one hour from Asheville.
Some of the activities to be enjoyed within the Great Smoky Mountains include fishing for mountain trout, white-water rafting, biking, river tubing, and much more including hiking on part of the Appalachian Trail which runs through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. In fact, the highest point on the Appalachian Trail, Clingman’s Dome, is located in this Park. It is the second highest point east of the Mississippi River at 6,643 feet. Only North Carolina’s Mt. Mitchell, at 6,684 feet, is higher.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the "most visited National Park" in America! Over 9 Million tourists and 11 Million non-recreational visitors traveled to the park in 2003, double that of any other national park! If you're considering Great Smoky Mountains real estate for a permanent or vacation home, come visit the Bryson City area. You'll be glad you did!
