Recognized for its college campus, Young Harris is a charming, quiet city just south of the North Carolina-Georgia border. With a population of just over 1,000 people, Young Harris is considered a lovely little escape for those who enjoy the tranquility of small-town, mountain living.

When it comes to the real estate market in Young Harris, this city is entirely single-family homes, although there are some lakefront condos on the edges of the city limits. As much of the area is undeveloped land, there are often a number of vacant lots for sale in Young Harris, as well. For those interested in building a custom, dream home, there are many listings to choose from. 

Young Harris homes are quite interesting. This city has a number of older properties, with construction dates around the 1970s and 1980s. A good portion of the available homes for sale have been built in the 1990s, and all of these properties take on more traditional architecture. This includes farmhouse, cottage, and cabin styles, but newer homes for sale are typically designed in cabin styles most often associated with the Northern Georgia area. 

Newer single-family homes are often rustic cabins, with vinyl or wood siding, large porches, and both interior and exterior beams. However, there are many homes that have given the cabin style a modern twist—a Contemporary take on the traditional home design. Large windows, dark siding, and clean lines. The Nest at Brannon Ridge Reserve is a new subdivision offering some of these modern cabin homes to potential buyers. Interiors for these homes, as well, are exceedingly modern, and these homes have been built with sustainable and energy-efficient methods. 

In regards to price point, Young Harris homes are lower priced than some of the larger cities. Homebuyers, as a result, get a lot more property, and this extends to the new, modern construction homes as well. Some of the older, smaller bungalows sit at around 1,500 square feet, but do often come with acreage. Homes that begin to creep into the luxury bracket are much larger in size, and often come equipped with stainless-steel appliances, modern interior finishes, and exceptional mountain and/or lake views.
