Both lots are sold together. Based on current resort pricing where no double lots are available with our views, construction prices on new retention walls; reinforced pads; coach houses; pavilions; and landscaping, we have priced both lots at $224,500.
This price is only valid until I begin the outdoor kitchen, fireplace, interior, water feature, etc. at which time the sale price will increase accordingly.
It’s all about LOCATION. Views from these lots are among the best in the Smoky's Mountains and certainly surpass any other resort in western North Carolina hands down. You can easily well over our asking price for a single lot and drive white-knuckle roads to get there.
Look at the only other luxury resort on the east side of the Smoky’s and see that luxury like Sunset Ridge Motorcoach Resort is a level on it’s own. Arguably these are the best two lots in the resort and in western North Carolina. The lots are connected by a grand staircase and will be sold only as a pair to ensure your privacy and view will never be infringed upon.
Pad and utilities are already in place on both lots, ready to pull on to with 50 amp electric, sewer and water waiting. The lower lot is approx 5' lower in elevation and connected to the top lot with a lighted block and stone stairway. The top lot, #205, has a large concrete pad and in the spring of 2019 a 12' X 18' coach house and 12' x 36' shelter was built for shade and outdoor living. Future outdoor improvements will include an outdoor kitchen next to the coach house and a fireplace at the opposite end of the pavilion and a waterfall feature to be added probably in 2021. Although the new coach house and pavilion are complete, the interior of the coach house will not be completed until the summer of 2020 depending on our travel schedule. Interior plans will include a full bathroom, kitchenette, laundry closet and sitting area with a large window view.
The upper lot, Lot #205, has extensive landscaping and is highlighted at night with low voltage lights that make it a truly beautiful and natural relaxing outdoor setting. The lower lot, #206 or what we use as a buddy pad, is finished with a large RV pad capable of accommodating a 45 foot motor coach with lots of room for extensions for a coach house and pavilion on it’s own. Presently the lower lot includes a large (approx 12x14) shed for storage.
These two lots are almost directly across from the Club House and Pool; however with the position of the coach and landscaping, you will enjoy almost total privacy. You will be in close proximity to the resorts Wi-Fi antenna's which mean you will have good reliable reception. HOA/Maintenance fees are $170 a month for both lots ($85 for the upper developed lot, and $85 for the lower lot) which includes use of the Club House, Exercise Room, Pool, community events, water, sewer, and ground maintenance. County Taxes for 2019 were $684 for both lots.
