MILL SPRING, NC (Sep 07, 2011) — Bright’s Creek, an exclusive 5,000-acre community featuring premier homesites, a world class Tom Fazio golf course and array of additional amenities, is now under new ownership. Protex Investments Group, Inc. closed last month on its acquisition of the property from original owner, Bright’s Creek Holdings, LLC. As a result, property owners, members and the neighboring community will soon see new community amenities and residential product elements incorporated into the master-planned, gated community nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
Plans include the addition of a new swim club, new roads providing access to Hendersonville, N.C., cottages and an equity residence club, according to Bright’s Creek CEO Frank C. Weed. In addition, Bright’s Creek recently received approval for a new development agreement of 1,370 units, including commercial, hotel and residential product.
“Bright’s Creek is a prospering community, and we look to build on its success to date. In fact, several villas in Ridgeview have been sold since the acquisition.”
This award-winning community features a world class 19-hole golf course by Tom Fazio, the most decorated golf course designer of the past two decades. Recognized as one of “Ten Courses to Watch” internationally by Golf Magazine, the 7,435-yard course has played host to major events such as the BMW Charity Pro-Am Golf Tournament.
The property also offers visitors and residents opportunities for horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, tennis, swimming and fishing. Home sites, ranging from one-half acre to five acres, are situated on ridgelines, along creeks and within hardwood forests, and start at $175,000. Custom homes start in the $900,000’s.
Weed said the community is now more focused on family-oriented amenities. Future developments will include children’s play areas and programs and the conversion of a classic barn into a craft barn.
“Bright’s Creek would not flourish as it does without the outstanding owners and members we have in the community,” said Weed. “We will continue to work together with them to grow this unique place to live and play.”
