Hard to say where the name Sweetbriar Farms originated, but Charles Dickens wrote of sweetbriar along a wooden fence line to create the visual image of an idyllic garden setting. One visit to this community in northeast Lake Lure, and you’ll experience that feeling firsthand.
In 2004, a visionary hand selected 200 acres in the foothills of the Blueridge Mountains as the site for Sweetbriar Farms. With careful planning, the Developer strived to insure every land owner enjoyed something truly unique about their property. Roads were strategically placed along generous lot sizes to give homeowners as much privacy as possible. The gentle rolling land, streams, waterfalls, and stunning mountain views fueled immediate success for this Rutherford County community.
Today Sweetbriar Farms consists of two gated sections, Sweetbriar North and Sweetbriar South. Each section is gated with paved roads, and electricity & telephone to each property. Lot sizes generally run between 2 and 6 acres, many with home sites already in place. Light restrictions provide protection for your property values, while giving homeowners plenty of flexibility to build the home of their dreams. Most of the homes in Sweetbriar Farms are log, but you might choose something different. A healthy mix of full time residents and vacation homeowners means your friends and neighbors are watching over your investment while you’re away.
But wait, there’s more! Alongside a bold rushing river is an assortment of community amenities. Sweetbriar Park offers riverfront gazebo, picnic tables, barbeque grills, children’s playground, basketball court, and park area.
