August 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
CASHIERS, N.C. – (Aug. 31, 2007) – Nestled in the heart of the Smoky Mountains, The Cottages at Cedar Crest offers a rare combination of luxury townhomes that retain the rustic appeal and natural beauty of the surrounding area, while providing a full slate of amenities to satisfy the needs of anyone desiring an upscale mountain lifestyle.

Three of the four completed townhomes within the 10-acre gated community, which is represented exclusively by Landmark Realty Group (, have already been sold – a testament to the superior design and attention to detail they have to offer.

“Our goal with The Cottages at Cedar Crest was to provide residents with luxurious townhomes that offer all the high-end features and amenities one expects from an upscale community, but do so in a way that complements the rustic beauty of the surrounding mountains, lush national forests, lakes, streams and waterfalls,” said Buck Walters, Owner, Dynamic Development, the Cashiers-based developer of The Cottages at Cedar Crest.

The Cottages at Cedar Crest will ultimately consist of 10 two- or three-story townhomes ranging in size from 2,500-3,200 square feet. The four existing townhomes are 3,200 square feet and include the optional lower level.

The three-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath homes include an office, great room and screened-in porch, as well as such elegant touches as stacked stone rock fireplaces in the great room and on the screened porch, spacious living areas, ceramic tile in wet areas, heated floors in the master bath, and high-end GE Profile appliances. Cabinets are “showplace” hickory with raised panel doors, a rustic finish and granite countertops.

To convey the rustic feel of a mountain retreat, interiors feature wide plank pine or red oak flooring, square edge cypress or rough sawn pine in the great room, foyer, dining and powder room, and pine wainscoting in the master bedroom. Decks and porches feature hardwood and pressure treated pine, Mountain Laurel pickets, and rough-sawn timber.

“No detail has been overlooked in the design and construction of these gorgeous townhomes,” said Jane Ebberts, Owner and Broker-in-Charge of Landmark Realty Group. “They truly represent the best that the Cashiers region has to offer: luxurious living and a full range of outdoor activities, all just minutes away from fine dining and world-class art galleries and shopping.”

The superior construction of the townhomes includes reinforced concrete foundations, emergency generators and a continuously flowing hot water circulating system. Rooms are also pre-wired for stereo, satellite televisions and telephone systems.

Buyers in The Cottages at Cedar Crest can select from three floor plans, all of which offer an optional lower level. Prices begin at $975,000.
