To find Stonebridge, one must leave the paved highways and drop onto a wooded private lane canopied with trees, fringed with wildflowers and lined with aged old split rail fences. It is here that the developers of Stonebridge brought old logs gathered from around the country to this mountain to create a haven for people who value the homespun traditions of the North Carolina Mountains.
The homes are constructed from reclaimed logs, some of them twenty-four to twenty-six inches wide. Each home has at least one dry-laid stone fireplace (some of the larger homes have three and four) wood floors, wood shake roofs, stone foundations, covered porches and decks. The homes are scattered over approximately 400-acres of pristine forests filled with native hardwoods, conifers and wild fern. Throughout the mountain, crystal clear waters flow from natural springs forming small rushing streams and waterfalls. The developers placed stone bridges over these streams allowing them flow naturally, undisturbed. From the ridges, long-range views of the surrounding mountains are breathtaking and on clear days you can see 100 miles or more.
Late at night when the quietness is all around you, it is easy to understand what brought people to the mountain. It was a yearning for a place of great natural beauty so uncluttered that at night you can actually see a vast canopy of stars. As the moon slowly rises above the mountain tops, in the distant you might hear an old night owl hooting from a distant ridge.
Stonebridge offers a bit of history and a chance to live in a place where you can enjoy, relax and dream. It is a place where the developers preserved the forest and the natural beauty of the mountain.
