Balsam Mountain Preserve Real Estate
The families who acquire real estate at Balsam Mountain Preserve are true visionaries. They have made a thoughtful and conscious decision to create a true legacy homeplace for their families, and it's a decision that their future generations will enjoy and appreciate fifty years from now as much as the present generation does today.
With less than 400 homesteads nestled into 4,400 acres, or one home for every ten acres, residents will feel as if they live in a national park, since nearly 75% of the community is protected and will never be developed. And since every property touches a portion of the 3,400 acre Preserve, the level of privacy and seclusion found here is unmatched by most other mountain Club communities, which are primarily focused on maximizing residential density rather than minimizing it.
“We decided to buy here because of the low density; we’re living in a 4,000 acre park. The peace and tranquility here top anything I’ve ever imagined. At times it’s like living in an aviary; the birds surround us in the treetop canopy. At night I fall asleep listening to the stream and the tree frogs.”
- Lisa and Sal Guerriero, Norristown, Pennsylvania
