Reynolds Blue Ridge Unveils New Cottage Home Neighborhood

Reynolds Blue Ridge has unveiled the Watson Gap Cottages, the community’s first neighborhood since becoming a Reynolds Club Community  in late 2008.
Inspired by the Blue Ridge architectural vernacular, the 10 Watson Gap Cottages will each feature roughhewn natural timbers, bark siding, free-stacked stone and intricate wrought-iron hardware. The cottages will range in size from roughly 2,000- 3,000 square feet, and prices will range from $400,000 to $600,000. The new neighborhood is located in the heart of the community, adjacent to the planned village center.

 “Reynolds Blue Ridge officially launched the Watson Gap Cottages in September and we already have three sales; one home is under construction and two are scheduled to begin by year’s end,” said Reynolds Blue Ridge Sales Manager Chris England. “We expect the remaining seven to sell in the next 90 days, as activity and interest has been high.”
Since taking ownership, Reynolds has repositioned and re-priced the 6,200-acre community located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, between Blowing Rock and Boone. Formerly known as Laurelmor, the community was purchased for a fraction of what had previously been invested, and Reynolds is passing the savings on to its customers.

“The Watson Gap Cottages are designed to conform to the new realities of the post-boom marketplace,” England added. “The great majority of today’s buyers are primarily looking for value and convenience. Smaller floor plans and lower prices are in; supersized homes and homesites are out.”

Completed community amenities at Reynolds Blue Ridge include the gatehouse, trail network, Watson Gap community pavilion and a sports field, while future amenities will include a village center with general store, wellness and activity center, and an outdoor outfitter.  Reynolds has commissioned renowned golf course architect Rees Jones to design the golf course, with specific direction to create a mountain masterpiece. The community will also be home to some of the best trout fishing in the Carolinas, and some of the most scenic hiking trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

“Given the surge in sales these past 60 days, we anticipate a robust winter selling season,” concluded England. “Winter is Blowing Rock’s most romantic season, and it’s easier to see the spectacular views from nearly every homesite and cottage. With current pricing and magnificent scenery, there is no better time to visit Reynolds Blue Ridge.”
