Welcome to the gated, private community of Leatherwood Mountains. Leatherwood Mountains POA offers superb features to enhance the restorative tranquility, rustic beauty and romantic ambience that gives this mountain home community its unique appeal. Our POA’s finances are equally impressive. We have the rare distinction of being a debt-free Property Owners Association with a reserve fund available for future road and asset improvements. Our development was incorporated in 1987 and remains rooted in the mountain equestrian tradition. Beloved by horse and nature enthusiasts alike, the community of Leatherwood Mountains is a 2500-acre development with home site elevations ranging from 1300-3000 feet. Its varied topography offers home sites with sweeping views of distant mountain ranges, pristine woodlands and meadows dotted with fishing ponds. Adding to its picturesque beauty are elegant mountain homes, horse barns, pastures and clear-running streams that flow from underground springs and converge into nearby Elk Creek. Lots are accessible by 15 miles of paved, well-maintained roads.
True to its original design, our gated community maintains a low-density home site plan which blends with the wooded hillsides and mountaintops, and allows the tranquility of natural sounds and scenery to prevail. Whether a homeowner’s tastes are modest or elaborate, our POA’s Covenants allow construction of dream homes starting at 1200 sq. ft. The community of Leatherwood Mountains appeals to primary and second homebuyers who seek the ideal balance between secluded getaways and a vibrant community life amid the spectacular backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
