Our Story

On a gentle expanse flanking one of Western North Carolina’s most beautiful valley’s, at the confluence of two creeks where the mountains meet the meadows, lies a special placed called Bridgewater. Bridgewater was born out of an idea of bringing together the natural beauty of mountain living with the traditions of a family neighborhood. Bridgewater embodies town and country living.

The Bridgewater sisters were entrusted with the land and went to great lengths to protect it knowing its value and uniqueness.  Eventually the sisters entrusted the land to a family that had resided in the Cane Creek Valley for 5 generations. As fourth generation road builders, Billy Taylor and his Dad sculptured the Bridgewater roads with high regard for the topography so as to not violate the landscape in anyway. With a longstanding reputation of respect and stewardship for the land, the Taylor family shared a love for this land and its characteristics. They carefully created a community allowing the land to guide development. Bridgewater, so named in honor of the sisters, fulfills the promise of creating a community that embraces nature, encourages exploration, and inspires the awakening of the inquisitive child in each of us.

Bridgewater is a traditional neighborhood in the woods attractive to both empty nesters and families wanting more nature with maintain natural amenities. With realistic usable trails, three parks that could not be closer to the land, and rushing mountain streams the stage has been set.

Bridgewater will stand the test of time, totally complete with gently winding roads, homes and cottages with room to breath, generous home sites with hardwood stands and views – all conveniently secluded 5 minutes from shopping and schools.

Bridgewater is a gentler mountain community.
