It’s time to discover just how easy it is to call Eagles Nest home — in about half the time and at less than half the cost of other custom builds in the area.
Your journey begins with a visit to Eagles Nest to discover all that our amenity-rich oasis has to offer. Schedule your tour and experience a community unlike any other, from our very own on-site winery to our activity-filled Sportsman’s Lodge, Double Eagle Guest Lodge for company, Great Camp, serene hiking trails, and so much more. With activities and amenities perfect for all ages and interests, plus mild temperatures, Eagles Nest offers something for the entire family to enjoy all year round. “Eagles Nest is focused on families,” says our building partner, Zach Bennett. “Neighbors become friends. From the architecture to the geography and family-friendly amenities, I’ve never seen anything like it,” he says.
After you’ve soaked in our premier amenities, miles of scenic trails, and sweeping views of famed national forests, it’s time to tour our array of unique Home/Lot Packages. With support from the knowledgeable Eagles Nest team, you’ll discover your dream lot featuring an array of stunning views overlooking the North Carolina mountains. Our sprawling lots range in size depending on your family’s needs.
Once you’ve selected a lot you love, you’ll partner with our Property Specialists to choose between 6-7 home plans. Our Village Home properties feature an array of bed and bath combinations so you can choose the perfect plan for you. With variable square footage options and layouts, you can rest assured that you’ll have a space you’ll love — minus the stress of from-scratch construction.
You’ll partner with our trusted builder, Zach Bennett of Bennett Fine Homes, to bring your dream home to life. With 20 years of experience and a long family legacy of crafting custom and semi-custom homes, he has the deep knowledge needed to make your building process seamless.
“We tailor our home plans to keep the customer happy and fit their needs, but stay within budget,” Bennett says, “because we know our costs inside and out.”
Think choosing a pre-planned home means missing out on custom touches? Thankfully, our Home/Lot Packages allow for select features to be customized including cabinets, interior trim, countertops, and colors. “Customers can come in and pick out wood, cabinets, granite, quartz, etc. — and can rest assured they know what the cost is,” says Zach.
This streamlined, tried-and-true process allows you to select custom touches without the stress of a custom build from scratch. “They can pick out finishes within an hour and a half and be done,” Bennett says. Skip the biweekly site visits, timeline crunches, and unforeseen budget additions, and opt for a no-maintenance plan that’ll have you in your dream Eagles Nest oasis in just 7-12 months.
Each of our home plans have been previously built, meaning our process is streamlined and stress-free. Given his unique experience within our community, Zach and his team know exactly what to expect and how to make the most out of each property. This experience translates to material acquisition efficiencies and cost savings for you — with a difference of up to $100 per square foot compared to a custom home. With pre-approved turnkey pricing ranging from about $500k-900k, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your budget is locked in up-front — with no unexpected fluctuations that can come with a custom build. Plus, there’s even pre-approved home financing available.
“Buyers have contracts on the lot and the home, which they can combine to be rolled into one loan with the bank, so they ultimately get better deals in financing,” Bennett says.
While complete custom homes can easily take one year or more, our Village Home process means a significantly faster move-in timeline of just 7-12 months. Additionally, our pre-approved plans mean no Architectural Review is needed, saving even more time and energy. If you don’t have the time or desire to manage a custom build, this all-inclusive process is perfect for you.
Our maintenance-free home plans mean you’ll spend more time enjoying our array of amenities and exploring charming nearby towns. Skip the landscaping and lawn care — that’s all taken care of by our community.
Your Village Home is even eligible for our popular Eagles Nest Homeowner Rental Program, where homeowners can generally earn between $30k-100K in rental income. Our unique program helps homeowners offset the cost of owning their dream mountain home, whether it’s a primary residence or second or third vacation home.
Our move-in-ready homes are the ideal way to avoid soaring building costs and supply chain issues. Partnering with our trusted team of builders and specialists means you can craft your dream mountain home remotely, without the constant oversight required from a custom build. “People can get stressed out by making decisions on custom homes – it’s more work and more risk of blowing the budget,” Bennett says.
Unlike other pre-approved plans, our homes are constantly evolving based on style and architectural trends, homeowners’ desires, and more. Each one features exceptionally upgraded features including top-of-the-line windows, tankless water heaters, and first-class utilities.
“Everything we spec out is high-end,” Zach says. “The Eagles Nest model is second-to-none. They put their money where their mouth is. There is no one that I’ve worked with that even comes close — the sales team, the land developers, everyone. It’s a great group of people!”
