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 homes, email sales@lakejames.com or call Jeremy at 919 740 2961.

$399,000

Amazing! A new three bedroom home in 1780 to be priced under $400,000.

This cute 1445 square foot cabin - named Gretel - is now under construction. We are building Gretel 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 to the high quality standards 1780 is well known for.

$473,000

We are partnering with Lake James Custom Homes to bring you this new home in time for summer at the lake. They built our home, so we know what fine work they do. You will enjoy the three bedroom, 2.5 bath layout in just over 1,800 square feet of living space. Contract soon and pick your appliances and finishes.

From $385,000

Start life at Lake James in 2019!

In April we will begin construction of a garage apartment on a 2.34 acre interior (lot 177) on Yellow Fork Trail East. It will have 772 square feet of living space and two parking spaces. Optionally, we could make additional sleeping quarters from one garage bay until that future day when you have built your main house. In this configuration you would have 1,119 heated square feet.

The imaginative alpine design was inspired by Little Switzerland, one of our pretty neighboring towns. We modified the design shown here to increase the footprint slightly. The builder will be Higgins Building Group, the company with the most experience building in the community.

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.
