Sylva, NC (May 16, 2018) —Balsam Mountain Preserve, a conservation-oriented residential community in the Blue Ridge Mountains, has awarded North Carolina-based construction firm, Vannoy Construction, the contract to build the commercial component of the community’s new Doubletop Village. This will include the Members’ Grille, The Club Tavern and General Store & Golf House.  Set in a prime location within the 4,400-acre preserve overlooking Balsam’s Arnold Palmer Signature golf course and Plott Balsam Mountain Range, Doubletop Village is a mountain hamlet of dining and recreational amenities currently under development and is scheduled to open in early 2020.  Vannoy Construction specializes in the building of commercial properties, boasting a distinguished portfolio of recent projects through the Southeast.

“Vannoy Construction is a leader in their industry and a member of the North Carolina community,” states Joe Dellinger, Balsam Mountain Preserve’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are thrilled to welcome such a talented team who supports our commitment to the land and our residents.”

Balsam Mountain Preserve
Balsam Mountain Preserve is a low-density, conservation-orientated private residential community set on 4,400 acres in the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville. Surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest, the Pisgah National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Balsam Mountain Preserve was created as a “community within a park.” With an ethos centered on land-stewardship, seventy-five percent (3,400 acres) of the property has been placed in a permanent conservation easement, ensuring the preservation of its present park-like state in perpetuity. Refined amenities of the community include an Arnold Palmer Signature golf course, equestrian center, sports & wellness center, pool, nature center, tennis courts, guided hiking, fishing and camping opportunities, gathering house and food & beverage offerings. The new Doubletop Village, currently under construction, will consist of a grouping of stunning club facilities featuring a new Members’ Grille with a “Chef’s Table” for intimate culinary events, wine room, private dining room and an expansive terrace for outdoor dining. The Grille will overlook the practice park, golf course, valleys and mountains beyond. Across the courtyard, the Club Tavern will offer casual indoor and outdoor restaurant service. The Village will also feature a General Store and Golf House, as well as an organic farm, Great Lawn for bocce, croquet, badminton, putting green and other sports.
