Your Expectations Will Be Exceeded At The Headwaters.

Real Estate Agent

John Haynes, the Developer of The Headwaters at Banner Elk, took time out of his busy schedule to take Margie Casey and I on an afternoon tour of his exceptional development Saturday, which development, by the way, is very active (seriously), not only with new owners’ homes under construction, but with active, buying customers. Banner Elk is about 2 hours from Maggie Valley. Why (in one word) is The Headwaters at Banner Elk actually busy, even in this market? I came away knowing – VALUE. No kidding. Your expectations will actually be exceeded. Some of the present features are:

  • Lakes (2) and Parks
  • Views
  • Paved Roads
  • Staffed Gatehouse
  • Maintained Trails
  • Waterfalls
  • Lots 1 to 4 acres
  • Elevation 3100′ to 3900′
  • Clubhouse
  • Fiber Optics Based Internet and TV
  • 12 minutes to Dining, Shopping, etc.

Future features? Tennis Courts, Spa, Pool and (quite possibly) an Equestrian Center.

Please enjoy the slideshow of photos I took Saturday. The interior, deck and view photos were taken at The Headwaters Clubhouse, and most of the other photos were taken at one of the lakes. See a video about the property on The Headwaters website.

I've been caught up in a situation re employment, and it's been too long since I've visited your blog.  The FLICKR photo sequence is very cool; now I'll have to backtrack to see how you did it.  Beautiful photos (as always.)

Wow, Susie!  I would do backflips, handstands, and even learn to whistle Dixie for that kitchen!  Woohoooo! Now THAT is a kitchen!  Beautiful slideshow!

Michael, thanks, and yes, I love the Mac.

Bill, views to die for. Great ski country too! Hope they have RV spots!

Mike, thanks so much.

Jeff, it REALLY is a great development... and thank you for enjoying my photos.

Carol, I love that kitchen too, and the stovetop is a new 'magnetic' heat top - amazing. Thank you.
