Luxury/Estate Homes

Luxury homes and estate properties are located throughout the High Country

We are experts in finding some of the most surprising and totally off the beaten path locations as well as in more established club settings or residential neighborhoods.  There are wonderful family compounds with great lodges and guest cottages on acreage tracts, finely crafted club residences,  grand log homes with amazing views, equestrian oriented properties and neighborhood showplaces. 

Many mountain luxury homes feature an abundance of various types of wood, stone fireplaces and stone detail work, natural colors and bark or other rustic accents.  There are beautiful old restored farmhouses on acreage tracts that occasionally come on the market.  There are properties that, while presently used as residential, would lend themselves to corporate retreat use or conversion to bed and breakfast or mountain lodge.

Here are the luxury/estate properties currently on the market in the High Country:
