Hearthstone Ridge was built in seven Phases from 470 acres of land north of Rutherfordton, NC. Bordered on the southwest by Cathey's Creek, Hearthstone Ridge offers parcels of western North Carolina land with creek frontage, panoramic mountain views, and parcels of wooded privacy. An abundance of peace and quiet can be enjoyed here, along with its population of white-tailed deer and red-tailed hawk.
This is the latest development by Mountain Creek Land Company, offering parcels with panoramic Blue Ridge Mountain views, frontage on the beautiful waters of Cathey's Creek, and acreage adorned with an abundance of hickorys, oaks, maples, dogwoods and other hardwood trees. It's beauty is protected by covenants & restrictions, and low yearly dues of $396. The roads are paved, and a common area along beautiful Cathey's Creek allows all owners access to the cool water, as well as offering picnic tables, outdoor grills, a play set for children, and a covered pavilion (with a restroom) for gatherings.

Many of our happy clients expressly did not want to be in a community, gated or not. What changed their minds?
They may have started with pre-conceived ideas of homes being crowded together, looking like a set from a made-for-tv suburb. Or maybe it was the idea of a gated community being too uppity, or simply having to pay for amenities they wouldn't be using. Maybe it was the idea of bending to other people's rules or rule-keeping methods, or watching the dues rise each year. Could be any or all of the above, or something else entirely.
None of those issues and problems apply here. Their minds were changed, not by some high pressure salesperson, but rather because they saw something beautiful with their own eyes, and the concepts they previously held quickly dropped away in the face of reality. The truth of what we really offer shines through when you see for yourself.
For instance, Hearthstone Ridge is 470 acres, and has about forty full-time residences. Your grazing animals are welcome (so far, three families have horses). Parking your boat or RV on your lot is fine, (you could stay while you build!)
That's probably a different picture than the one you had in your mind when you started reading this a minute ago.
We are proud of our undisturbed corner of the world. We like the way the land lays, we like the warm and welcoming people here, we like the big cities to be close enough and far enough away. We like the idea of protecting the land from trailer parks moving in next door. We like the idea of being out in the country and still close to town. Join us!
