Discover Dillard Real Estate

The small town of Dillard is located in the gorgeous, green hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A northern community, Dillard offers cabin-style living and the scenic beauty that is so highly-desired in this region. Residents of Dillard are fond of outdoor recreation, especially horseback riding, and make the move specifically for the serene, mountain atmosphere surrounding the town.

Those dreaming of picturesque mountain cabins will find numerous properties on the real estate market. Dillard is recognized for its cabin-style homes, which are built in a variety of styles—from traditional to contemporary. Beyond just residential listings, Dillard has many opportunities to purchase vacant land and lots. The commercial areas of the town are located off of Main Street (Highway 441), with primarily untouched land encircling the community. As a result, those dreaming of building their dream custom home have many opportunities in Dillard. 

Older properties in Dillard tend to be more rustic in design, including cottage and ranch style homes (along with the cabins). Much of the real estate for sale in this town has been constructed in the 80s and 90s. Despite this, older homes remain classic and timeless, with interior design that is distinctly cabin-like. Wood beams, cozy fireplaces, hardwood flooring, gable roofs, and large porches are popular features of both old and new homes. 

New homes for sale are typically built in the desirable cabin styles, often with a Craftsman or Contemporary twist to the popular log cabin design. Builds from even the last 20 years generally have more modern interiors, with quartz or granite kitchen countertops, sleek design, and open-concept floor plans. Some older homes have also been recently updated, as well. The majority of homes on the Dillard real estate market, however, are older—but this just adds to their charm. Dillard does stretch around Sky Valley, and the east end is where the area’s condos (albeit only a few complexes) are located.
