Neighborhood Info

Yellowtop Mountain Estates is an approximately 1100 acre gated community in Bostic NC with about 269 home-sites. Lots range in size from 1 to 20 acres. Located between Shelby and Marion, NC, off Hwy 226 in a valley between the South Mountains and the Appalachian Mountain Range you’ll find what’s known as the Isothermal weather belt. This is an area where the weather tends to be milder, winter and summer, than the surrounding areas. Yellowtop Mountain Estates has paved roads and some of the best views in Rutherford County. Convenient to I 85, I 40 and I26, you’ll find within an hour drive you can pick up the Blue Ridge Parkway in Marion, enjoy an afternoon at Lake James, or outdoor dining in Lake Lure; the possibilities are diverse and plentiful. Yellowtop Mountain Estates is a Fall Creek Development and an affordable getaway location. Whether you come for a day or a lifetime, if being surrounded by nature, enjoying four distinct, lovely seasons, and a temperate climate is important to you, this is one area you owe it to yourself to see. Views are absolutely free.

Utilities. Living in the mountains doesn’t mean living without modern conveniences. High-speed DSL internet service is available with AT&T in part of the community.  Exede, WildBlue Hughes and Sky-Runner offer satellite services. DirecTV and Dish Network offer satellite television and can support Internet service as well.

Cell Service. Cell phones tend to work sporadically in Sunshine and Golden Valley communities. Verizon has put up several towers that will improve signal strength, but they are not online, yet. They are up and have lights on top, so we hope service is coming soon.

Electricity: Provided through Rutherford Electric or Duke Energy.

Recycling and Convenience center: There’s a center within one mile of the subdivision at the corner of Luckadoo Mountain Road and the Bostic Sunshine Highway for garbage and recycling disposal. They have a swap shop and clothing bins, so if there’s something you’d like to get rid of, but don’t want to put it in the garbage put it in the swap shop, it’s first come first serve.

Heath Care and Emergency Services: The Golden Valley Volunteer Fire Department and a first responder service are on the Bostic Sunshine Highway.  “911” service is well established. If you call 911 from a cell phone be sure to tell the dispatcher you’re in Rutherford County. The subdivision gate responds to the Yelp system in emergencies.

Rutherford Hospital, a 143-bed acute care facility complete with a recently renovated Intensive Care Unit and a new obstetrical and nursery wing, is about 18 miles from the subdivision.  Regional facilities include Mission Hospitals in Asheville, Bowman Grey Hospital and Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, Duke University Hospital in Durham, and Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

Rutherford County is home to hundreds of physicians whose specialties include pediatrics, family practice, internal medicine, cardiology, pulmonology, orthopedics, oncology, obstetrics and gynecology, dermatology, and plastic surgery, to name a few.  And there is no shortage of other medical and health professionals, including dentists, chiropractors, midwives, physical therapists, massage therapists, and many more.

Scroll down for county information.
If you’re not familiar with Rutherford County you might like to do a little research. Here’s a link for general area information Wikipedia is always a reliable source, check them out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutherford_County,_North_Carolina  

Rutherford County is huge at ~566 square miles, and diverse from the flatlands to the mountains with lots of valleys in-between. Rutherford County is comprised of 14 townships with names like: Golden Valley, Duncan’s Creek, Logan’s Store – these I’m told were the areas that hosted post offices, back when mail was delivered by horseback. Within those townships are many communities. My husband and I live in Sunshine Community. Near to us is Washburn Community and Washburn’s Store, which actually is a store. You will find a link to a video about Washburn’s Store on my real estate website KDMcCall.com . At Washburn Store you can buy anything from pickles, to hoop cheese, to a wood cook stove, and a cast iron pan….  While you’re there see my Favorites , a links list, with the little heart and Places in the menu bar. 

http://www.rutherfordcountync.gov/  has a lot of local information including tourism. The chamber of Commerce will be of some benefit, perhaps you’d like to look at the county demographics Rutherford County Chamber  which instead of 566 says we have ~563 square miles.  And in case you ran across the term Isothermal Weather region, here’s my favorite explanation Thermal Belts in NC

You might like to see the Farmer’s Fresh MarketArea Information or Community Links in my blog at the GoldenValley Blog.  I’ve found a couple of PBS films about the area and embedded them at the bottom of my real estate blog. KDsFarm. My real estate blog is loading pretty slowly… I have too many videos embedded in it. I need to get rid of a few, but which ones? Bostic Lincoln Birthplace? Bechtler Mint?

Here’s a ROC link Explore, Exercise, Relax. There are lots of things to do here, but most of my clients don’t come up to do anything. In fact they come to do nothing. They just want to enjoy the peace and solitude of a real mountain retreat, to appreciate the change of pace, to relax and recharge. I think you’ll find, most of the time, once you get here, you’ll never leave your property. We like to say we’re 20 miles from anywhere, and we like it like that.

If you need to be near the center of activity, where there’s a lot going on all the time, I can tell you, this will not suit you. We’re so far out in the country the speed limit is 55 and there are NO stoplights. While there’s always something going on, you’re going to have to drive to get there. I’m forever posting Day Trips on my Golden Valley Facebook Page. That’s just one more reason we live it here. Maybe you will too.
