Looking at the Hearthstone Ridge community? We've been here since its inception. We've walked every parcel pin-to-pin while the roads were being built and the land was being surveyed. We can answer your questions - no one knows Hearthstone Ridge like we do!
Hearthstone Ridge is the final development by Mountain Creek Land Company, offering parcels with panoramic Blue Ridge Mountain views, frontage on the waters of Cathey's Creek, and acreage adorned with an abundance of trees, such as hickory, beech, oak, maple, dogwood, poplar, pine, walnut and cedar.
This gated community is located five miles north of Rutherfordton, NC, twenty miles east of Lake Lure, NC, with residential lots measuring between one and six acres. The location offers home sites with mountain views, water frontage, wooded privacy, and a rural flavor with convenience to towns large and small. Current home values are generally between $150k and $350k. Homes are on individual wells & septic systems and there's no requirement to maintain unimproved lots.
Hearthstone Ridge features two gated entrances (east and west), offers paved roads throughout, and consists of 176 residential parcels. Light restrictions include no mobile homes (no single-wides or double-wides - RV's are fine), no unlicensed vehicles and a 1,200 sq. ft. minimum home (no requirement to build). Annual dues of $396 maintain the paved roads and common areas.
Horses and grazing animals are welcome. A quarter mile walking trail exists where there was once a railroad. (There are no club houses, tennis courts, pools, etc. in this community.)
Located on the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge mountains, Hearthstone Ridge's more popular west entrance is accessed by a paved easement off of a secondary road from US Hwy 221, giving easy access to the north-south highway, while the community enjoys a quiet location.
