Developers Break Ground on New Pool and Clubhouse at Echota

Share Article

Echota, a new home community in the Blue Ridge Mountain area of North Carolina, continues its growth with the construction of a new clubhouse and pool for its second phase, Echota on the Ridge. The community is centrally located -- within minutes of Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk, and within two hours of Charlotte, Hickory and Winston Salem -- providing an easily accessible vacation destination and second home opportunity for residents of the Carolinas and beyond.

Foscoe Realty and Development, developers of the mountain community Echota, have officially begun construction on the new pool and clubhouse for the community’s second phase, Echota on the Ridge.

“The pool and clubhouse should be available for next season’s opening, around spring, 2006,” said Mark Harrill, president of Foscoe Realty and Development. The structure, designed by Steve Skyes Architecture, PA, will be built in an Adirondack-style like the rest of the community’s architecture. It will feature an elevator and massage therapy rooms.

Developers expect the best feature will be the view residents will have while using some the of clubhouse’s amenities. “The clubhouse and pool are situated right along the edge of a mountain ridge, so they both will have amazing, long-range, rippling mountain views,” Harill said. “The clubhouse will also offer a hot tub and a waterfall pouring between a formation of natural boulders near the pool.”

Echota features Adirondack-style townhomes, condominiums and single-family homes in the heart of the High Country, a region known for its breathtaking mountain views. Echota on the Ridge will offer the same home styles on a compelling setting along the incline of Echota’s surrounding mountains. In addition to the new clubhouse and pool, the development’s amenities include a fitness center, hiking trails and stocked ponds for fishing. All community amenities are reciprocal for residents and visitors of both phases.

“Echota has developed a reputation not only as a second home opportunity, but as a great vacation destination in the High Country for all four seasons,” said Harrill. Many homeowners spend several weeks at Echota each year, and then rent their homes out to vacationers during peak seasons.

Echota is centrally located within minutes of Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk, and within two hours of Charlotte, Hickory and Winston Salem. The recent completion of the new Interstate 40 makes Echota accessible from Raleigh in approximately three hours. Echota offers single-family homes, townhomes and condos from the $300s - $500s. The development is owned and operated by Foscoe Realty and Development, which also operates Foscoe Realty and Rentals, a vacation and resort home rental agency available for Echota’s homeowners.
