Balsam Mountain Preserve
Balsam Mountain Preserve is a private residential community nestled on 4,400 acres in the pristine mountains of western North Carolina. Two-thirds of Preserve lands have been placed in a permanent conservation easement. In this low-density community, homesteads are carefully tucked into the natural landscape and are often not visible from the community’s private road.
The most prized amenity at the Preserve is nature herself. The community is graced with many freshwater trout streams, a working Nature Center, a rustic campsite, and extensive hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails. The Preserve also offers an Arnold Palmer Signature golf course, equestrian facilities, a fitness center with swimming and tennis, and a Boarding House with guest cottages and a dining hall.
Balsam Mountain Preserve is 38 miles west of Asheville and just a short drive from the charming towns of Waynesville, Sylva and Dillsboro. Atlanta and Charlotte are just 3 hours by car.

Balsam Mountain Preserve has this to say about MKB:
Balsam Mountain Preserve is proud to share a look inside some of the privately owned custom residences that are nestled inside our 4,400 acre community within a park. These homes are beautifully crafted and appointed, inspired by the natural settings and surroundings of the Blue Ridge mountains.
This year, the 60th family moved into Balsam Mountain Preserve, and there are currently 6 additional homes under construction, 4 of which started this year. As Balsam continues to mature into a living, breathing, self-sustaining community, more and more of these beautiful residences will appear, but with a density of only one home for every twelve acres, the mantra to “see but not be seen” will always be at the forefront of all new development activity.
