Limited land at Cascade Ridge in Waterville Valley Resort, NH
Mark Twain said it best. Buy land, they’re not making it anymore. Nowhere is that statement more true than at Waterville Valley Resort in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
Waterville Valley’s premiere home site subdivision, Cascade Ridge, is made up of just 19 parcels located in the historic north end of the mountain resort village. The lots at Cascade Ridge are the last large home sites to be developed in Waterville Valley, a planned community whose development is restricted by a master plan and its location in the midst of 700,000+ acres of National Forest.
Waterville Valley is a small resort town located two hours north of Boston, with only 500 acres of private land and just 300 residents.
Sixteen of the 19 home sites at Cascade Ridge have been sold. The developer has three 1+/- acre parcels available priced at $395,000 each. Two resale parcels are available for resale starting at $289,000.
Why Cascade Ridge?
Cascade Ridge’s slopeside home sites face the 4,000-foot mountain peaks that surround Waterville Valley, including the resort’s famed ski slopes on Mt. Tecumseh. The subdivision borders the White Mountain National Forest and each home site is just a short walk to the beautiful Cascade Falls.
The 1+/- acre lots were designed by an award-winning land planner to ensure privacy and take advantage of dramatic ridgeline views. The Cascade Ridge subdivision is protected by restrictive covenants. Every home site has underground power, telephone, cable TV with high speed internet service, and municipal water and sewer brought to the lot line, and all roads are paved and maintained by the Town of Waterville Valley.
“We love the small-town atmosphere of Waterville Valley, its mountain location, the four-season activities here, and the fact that the area is not overly developed,” said a Cascade Ridge owner, who vacationed here with his family for several years before buying.
“I see this as a great investment that can only increase in value,” he added. “But, the main reason we bought the property is its location—just two hours from our home—and the spectacular beauty of the area. We looked at a lot of resorts within driving distance, but always came back to Waterville Valley. It’s a special place, and we found nothing else like it.”
First settled in the 1800s, Waterville Valley catered to summer visitors who came for the clean mountain air, climbed the surrounding peaks, fished its clear streams and enjoyed games of croquet, tennis, and golf.
In the 1960s, famed two-time U.S. Olympic skier Tom Corcoran brought zoning, development controls, ski lifts and lodging amenities to Waterville Valley. It soon became the foremost ski resort in New England, hosting international ski championships and introducing new generations to the sports of alpine and cross-country skiing.
A self-contained community of vacation homes and condominiums, Waterville Valley offers a selection of shops, an indoor fitness center, restaurants, an indoor ice skating arena, and year-round recreation, special events and festivals.
“Cascade Ridge is designed to take advantage of the outstanding natural attributes of Waterville Valley, which has been a vacation base to second-home owners for more than four generations,” said Cascade Ridge’s developer, Bill Cantlin, of the Waterville Company.
“I think the key to the continuing strength in our real estate market is that potential homeowners recognize that the value of property in Waterville Valley will remain strong,” he said. “First of all, there is a very limited amount of land, so demand will always exceed supply. Second, this is a first-rate ski resort with year-round recreational and cultural opportunities. We’re surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest and the scenery doesn’t get any better than this!”
