Imagine a place where pristine wild forests ebb and flow with the peaks of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Where the lush valley and ancient geological formations sparkle like a rare gem. That place is here on the Cashiers-Highlands Plateau, where Chinquapin provides an unmatched opportunity to experience this refined backcountry.


The Cashiers-Highlands Plateau is unique in both geology and personality and Chinquapin’s 2000 acres reign at the pinnacle, stretching across the Eastern Continental Divide. Over 700 acres of conservancy land are held in permanent preservation with the North American Land Trust. To preserve this sense of pristine beauty, Chinquapin’s Masterplan weaves together “filtered views” and strategically placed building “envelopes” ensuring maximum privacy for each home. Come view our North Carolina mountain homes for sale and see the spectacular beauty of nature that is surrounding the mountain homes for sale in NC.
