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. 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 community offers convenience to towns large and small. Current home values are generally between $170k 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), and consists of 179 residential parcels. Light restrictions include no mobile homes and a 1,200 sq. ft. minimum home size when you're ready to build. Annual dues of $396 maintain the paved roads and common areas, which include the two gates, a park along Cathey's Creek, and a quarter-mile walking trail where there was once a railroad. Horses and grazing animals are welcome. 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.
