Discover Blue Ridge Real Estate

For adventurers and passionate outdoor enthusiasts, Blue Ridge, Georgia offers homebuyers the opportunity to own the log cabin of their dreams. With exceptional views and private, forested properties, homes on the Blue Ridge real estate market are available at a range of price points. From quaint, charming homes found in the sprawling foothills to large, luxury estates overlooking the water, there’s a definite reason why property in this city is so highly sought-after.

Blue Ridge real estate is composed of homes located in the center of the city, and those that dot the surrounding mountain ranges. The Appalachian Highway (US-76) curls around the city and is the best point of access if coming from one of the neighboring areas, such as Ellijay or Mineral Bluff. Many of the homes for sale in the residential neighborhoods surrounding the Blue Ridge downtown are older bungalows, which typically start at lower price points, although there are a selection of multi-story properties, too.

As there are often vacant lots and land for sale, sometimes new construction homes (and even a few condos complexes) will also appear on the market. Architecturally, these are perhaps not always the log cabin style homes that are often associated with the area, but they do have their own distinct charm. There is, as well, value in purchasing vacant land and building a custom home, as Blue Ridge presents a great investment opportunity.

Venturing out from downtown Blue Ridge will allow for more choice for prospective buyers. Here, tucked into the forests along the winding roads, is where much of the picturesque log cabins are located. As many are custom builds, each home is quite unique, with both single-story and multi-story properties for sale. Interior design often pulls from the log cabin exterior, and usually features wood siding, exposed beams, rustic kitchens and wood cabinetry, and fireplaces. 

Of course, there are also luxury homes for sale in Blue Ridge. These include both mountain log cabins and luxury lakefront homes, many of which are located to the south and east of the city center. To the south are many of the mountain homes for sale, which allow for some amazing views, as these properties are often constructed to overlook the steep drop below. 

To the east is Blue Ridge Lake, one of the area’s most popular attractions. Lake area and lakefront homes are incredibly desirable, and are a mixture of both older and newer properties. Although these are often built in cabin styles, new luxury homes typically take a more contemporary spin on the design, which follows through to the interior features, as well. Of course, many homes have been updated and renovated in Blue Ridge, with high-end appliances and upgrades.
