it’s just what we’ve been looking for.
Laurel Fork, VA (Vocus) February 4, 2010
“Do you hear that?” the husband says to his wife as he stands near a grove of trees looking down on a sparkling lake, a stream and a deer enjoying the acres of unspoiled beauty at Olde Mill.
“No,” she replies, “I only hear the breeze.” “Exactly,” says the husband, “it’s just what we’ve been looking for.”
Olde Mill is more than just a burgeoning 850-acre residential community in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke, VA and Winston-Salem, NC – it’s a calling to nature and a lifestyle that embraces peaceful living and outdoor recreation. From walking trails and fishing holes, wineries to music festivals, Olde Mill tunes into a relaxing wavelength which soothes the soul.
No wonder Olde Mill thrives under the telling brand promise “Blue Ridge Mountain Living as it Should Be”.
While tranquility proliferates and the nature-kissed property offers one stunning vista after another, Olde Mill doesn’t lack for amenities and nearby attractions. In fact, it’s the best of both lifestyle worlds – serenity and harmony meshed with modern conveniences and activity options.
Sip a cocktail at sunset on the deck of The Tavern at Olde Mill – perched gloriously above the resort community’s 54-acre lake and golf course below. Meander through walking trails, swim in the pool, exercise in the fitness center, play tennis, frolic with friends and family at nearby Chateau Morrissette winery, or relish an exquisite meal by accomplished Chef Ed Badgett III at Olde Mill’s Maples Restaurant.
A true escape conveniently nestled within three miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Olde Mill offers all of the above options and more, including real estate for incredible values. Looking for a perfect second or vacation home amid the glorious Blue Ridge Mountains? You’re in luck – Olde Mill just released its third residence design style. Laurel Mountain Manors join the previously released Overlook Villas and Olde Mill’s custom mountain cottages and estate homes to provide options and values for a wide array of preferences and price points.
Overlooking the opening holes of the acclaimed Ellis Maples-designed golf course, Laurel Mountain Manors are attached living units designed by Garrell and Associates. Named “Falls Creek” and “Woodbridge” for the inspiring setting and surrounding environmental features, their architectural elements showcase Olde Mill’s cedar, stone and glass mountain-craftsman theme, as well as exposed timbers, hand-distressed hickory floors and brand-name kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures.
Offering sun-glinted views of the lake and streams, this brand-new neighborhood provides privacy in the heavily landscaped, wooded enclave, yet is easily accessible to the clubhouse, Maples Restaurant, The Tavern, fitness center, indoor swimming pool, and other amenities.
The three residence design styles currently for sale at Olde Mill are:
- The Overlook – completely renovated, upscale condominiums which perch above the 18th green (from the low $200s)
- Laurel Mountain Manors (starting at the $400s)
- Custom mountain cottages and estate homes, including the stunning Nantahala – a 5-bedroom, 4 1/2-bathroom custom estate-home model (from the $400s to $1 million)
“Like everything in our master-planned community at Olde Mill, Laurel Mountain Manors highlight the spectacular scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains,” says Mark Wuerthele, Broker-In-Charge. “We are minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and an easy drive from many mid-eastern cities, yet, you’ll feel like you’re a world away from the rat race. We’re eager to share our brand-new community with people looking for a place to enjoy a carefully designed place which promotes a fulfilling, mountain-oasis lifestyle.”

Breathtaking, panoramic views of the golf course and mountains proliferate.
Olde Mill’s multi-million-dollar metamorphosis is the vision of Mid-Atlantic land developer and Virginia Tech graduate Norris Mitchell, who grew up on a farm 20 miles from Olde Mill.
