Drive through the old stone gate, and you enter into Montreat magic. Founded as a mountain retreat, thus "Mon-treat", more than a century ago, Montreat has a simple, peaceful quality of life. It does not have a traffic light or a McDonalds.
Owning a Montreat mountain home means having access to multiple mountain trails, creeks and woodlands. Located in eastern Buncombe County, this secluded community features narrow winding roads that curve the contours of the mountainside. Pedestrians utilize neatly-kept paths that also follow the natural lay of the land. Roads and pathways converge at Lake Susan, home to the Montreat Conference Center and Montreat College.
Greybeard Realty's Montreat listings include a range of properties from a small home nestled near the mountain top to undeveloped land in a prime location. Montreat, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, makes a wonderful retirement community and is an ideal vacation rental property location. And if you want to settle at the foot of Greybeard Mountain and raise your children, you can take advantage of the strength of the Buncombe County education system for schools.
