Looking for a waterfront lot? Haven’t seen the right one yet? Perhaps one of the last two waterfront lots that will ever exist in the community will be what you are looking for. They will be lots 98 and 99, at the end of Big Game Drive in Old Wildlife Club. We intend to make them very special. Lot 98, the smaller one, will be about 9 acres! It’s on a ridge which ends in a relatively flat building area with room and permission for two dwellings. The bigger lot - 99 - will be more than 13 acres. It’s going to be an estate lot with a grand entrance and with permission to build three dwellings.

Looking for a home? As 1780 residents we understand that the biggest—and most daunting—step in building your dream home at Lake James is breaking ground on your first project. To make this step easier for busy families, we are working on a small collection of starter homes we would love to see in our community. We are currently working on three building projects, with lots more ideas in the pipeline.

If you would like to learn more about these soon-to-be lots or homes, email sales@lakejames.com or call Jeremy at 919 740 2961.

Gretel 9 16 19.jpg


Amazing! A new three bedroom home in 1780 to be priced under $400,000. We expect to finish construction in November. Spend Christmas at your new lake home.

This cute 1445 square foot cabin - named Gretel - is being built on a 2.65 acre interior (lot 109) in 1780 on Yellow Fork Trail East.

The home was designed by Mary McCarthy and is being built by ALM Building & Design Inc. This photo was taken 9/16/19. Picture the finished product with red windows and front door, and with winter pansies in the window boxes!

The Glass House

As real estate developers we look at a lot of house designs. This one leapt out from the crowd for the flair it adds through the bold use of glass. We hope to see something like this built in our community. Lot 97 in Old Wildlife Club could be a perfect setting. The creative talent behind this design is Miller Nicholson AIA, a Charlotte-based architect who shares our love of Lake James.
