Welcome to The Headwaters at Banner Elk! Voted North Carolina’s best mountain community in a 2013 survey conducted by Real Estate Scorecard, an industry-leading resource that evaluates hundreds of popular master planned communities. And here’s why.
Welcome home. If you are looking for luxury living in a park setting, you will find it at Headwaters. We are a prospering mountain community nestled at a perfect elevation of 3,100 to 4,000 feet in the beautiful high country between Pisgah National Forest and Cherokee National Forest. Headwaters gated community offers its residents premium real estate, a variety of amenities, outdoor adventure, plus awe-inspiring, 360° views, 365 days a year.
You work hard. And when the work day is done, you deserve a place where you and your family can get away from it all. Where you can take time to enjoy each other and enjoy life. That place is Headwaters. We are your mountain oasis.
The almost 1,000 acres that are part of the Headwaters property provide a beautiful backdrop for relaxation. From a quiet stroll through one of our parks to a peaceful picnic by the lake to curling up by the fire with a good book, you’ll love life at Headwaters.
