They will oversee development, management, operations, sales and marketing for The Cliffs and The Cliffs Clubs.

“We are thrilled to acquire what is the premier collection of private mountain and lake communities in the Southeast,” said Patrick Melton, managing partner of South Street. “The setting of The Cliffs communities, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains with close proximity to booming Greenville, South Carolina and Asheville, North Carolina, makes this a very unique opportunity. These communities are well positioned to benefit from the unprecedented demand occurring in the Carolinas and offer everything future residents are seeking in a world-class community. We look forward to sharing our long-term vision for The Cliffs with our current and future residents in the coming weeks and months.”

With over 50 years of combined experience, South Street has a documented track-record in the luxury resort residential development world. Most notably, in 2013 the firm acquired Kiawah Partners, the master developer of Kiawah Island, S.C.
