Readers of our free monthly newsletter, Home On The Course, know a bargain golf home when they see one. Within a few minutes of reading our latest issue, which we distributed yesterday, two of our faithful asked for more details about a $74,900 villa at Mountain Air, the elevated community –- both in altitude and price points – about a half hour northwest of Asheville, NC. Mountain Air is unique in terms of its golf course, which is nearly 4,000 feet up there, but also because an airstrip bisects the top of the mountain – and the Scott Poole designed golf course. (You wait between green and tee box for any planes to land or takeoff before proceeding across the runway.)
The home is just one bedroom and one bath, 830 square feet in total, and best suited as a vacation home getaway. But for a couple living at sea level in the Carolinas, Georgia or Tennessee and looking for some cool relief in the summer, the small size and small price are a nice fit. As a bonus, you will find your tee shots fly a bit farther in the thinner air.
I am happy to put you in touch with our agent at Mountain Air for more details on this home and the community's other properties. Also, if you are looking for unique information and observations about golf community real estate in the southeast, please sign up for our free monthly newsletter. (Use the "Subscribe" tab on this page.) When you do, I will also send you this latest edition, which includes a list of the least expensive homes in some of the South's top golf communities. The price is right, for these bargain homes and for our newsletter.
