By Arielle Patterson

Imagine starting your day with the breathtaking sunrise over the mountains. Spend the day fishing in a shimmering stream, going on a scenic hike or strolling through one of the High Country’s charming communities. If you love visiting the High Country, consider purchasing your own home here.

From the breathtaking landscapes and endless outdoor activities to the friendly hospitality and small-town atmosphere, there are a number of reasons why you should buy a home in North Carolina’s High Country. Whether you’re searching for a tranquil locale to retire to, seasonal vacation home, weekend retreat or something more, you can find it within the High Country with the help of a local realtor.

Jay Harrill of Echota, a second-home community in the heart of the High Country, agrees that defining your usage up front will save you a lot of time and frustration.

“Most of our owners at Echota are second-home owners looking for year-round weekend escapes with their families. They’re drawn to our maintenance-free residences, our central location to Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock, our inviting amenities and, of course, the great views all around.” 

Once you’ve figured out just how you want to utilize your home in the High Country, reach out to one of the knowledgeable, experienced area realtors to get started on your home search.
