Straus Park is a master planned community built on land once owned by Transylvania County’s largest industry owner, Harry Straus. The property was utilized by his employees for recreation. Now Straus Park is a vibrant residential community that is minutes from Transylvania County Hospital in Brevard NC. Enjoy hiking on the trails, meet with friends at the community garden or play a game of tennis. This truly is one of the finest communities the WNC.
Choosing to live in Brevard and Straus Park was an easy decision for us and we have found everyone to be warm and welcoming. Evenings spent at the Lake House have afforded us the opportunity to get to know our neighbors and create new friends
Having grown up here, I have many fond memories of days spent swimming in Straus lake and hiking and camping in Pisgah National Forest. Brevard Music Center along with Brevard College provide an wonderful cultural experience for those of us who live here.
Reality seldom produces the promises of one expectations–living in Brevard and Straus Park has exceeded ours- Don
“We have owned property in Transylvania County for years and had originally envisioned building on that property. However, for convenience sake, we purchased in Straus Park when we decided to relocate to Brevard. After nearly two years of living in Straus Park, we’re definitely here to stay. The convenience of living in this unique, beautiful neighborhood with friendly neighbors and a real sense of community; amenities such as the hiking/biking trails, the lake, and tennis; immediate proximity to the expansive Pisgah National Forest, yet being literally within walking distance of town (and Poppy’s!) makes it a very appealing place to live. Living in Straus Park puts the best of Transylvania County at our doorstep”.
We have been just spoiled by living here. I’m minutes from Starbucks, restaurants, entrance to Pisgah, hospital/doctors offices, and even “downtown”, etc. Yet our house gives us the “feel” of privacy and seclusion, yet the benefit of having neighbors within “hollering” distance. Obviously last year during the snows, it was cool to be able to just run down to Poppie’s in my Polaris to eat or pick up food. So both Lisa and I have been totally spoiled by the convenience of living here, and it will definitely be a big adjustment to move elsewhere. Clay and Lisa Sykes
