Following a long and very hectic military career abroad, we were in search of a quiet piece of America in which to retire and relax. After years of contemplation and searching, we settled on North Carolina as the place we wanted to be. We fell in love with the natural beauty, four season climate and grandeur of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After visiting too many congested and over built “cookie-cutter” development communities - definitely not our style – our wonderful and knowledgeable real estate agent Charlene Blevins, who knows the area like the back of her hand, steered us to Pilot Ridge.
With its breathtaking views, wonderful climate, lush natural forest, wildlife and serene country location near the lovely towns of Marion and Nebo, midway between the many cultural offerings of Asheville and Charlotte, Charlene instinctively knew that Pilot Ridge had all we wanted and more. She was absolutely correct. After only minutes at Pilot Ridge, we knew we had finally found “home” and selected a wonderful lot at the base of Pilot Mountain on which to build our dream home. - The Portellis
