A recent foot injury has left me with crutches and a new perspective on some of the different areas around Asheville. Obviously, the mountains are what draw us to WNC, yet so many of us desire "flat" land with our homes for a variety of reasons. Whether you have special accessibility needs or you simply want some play area for the kids, here are some great neighborhoods to consider depending on what your budget is:
$150k - $250k
Beacon Village, Swannanoa
Swannanoa is a small city that bridges the eastern gap of Asheville to Black Mountain. There is certainly an eclectic group of residences to choose from, all of which are about 20 minutes to downtown of either city. For the money, Beacon Village shows the most promise as a first time buyer's dream or a smart rental investment.
$250k - $400k
River Stone, Fletcher
There are many flat housing developments in Fletcher, and all seem to share long range mountain views from just about every angle. Perhaps I've chosen River Stone because we have had several clients this year do the same. Just about all the homes here were built within the last 10 years, so the floor plans are great and nothing is too outdated.
$400k - $550k
Windsor Park, South Asheville
This small section of houses off Sweeten Creek boasts some seriously interesting character. It may not have the most flat land in our list, yet it definitely has some nice homes available.
$550k - $750k
Lakeview Estates, North Asheville
Overlooking the lovely Beaver Lake, just before you reach Woodfin, Lakeview Estates offer a variety of luxury homes. Whether you want something traditional or incredibly modern, this is a good place to find something you may like. Although the land these homes sit on all gently slope towards the lake, Beaver Lake Park offers plenty of walking trails that are as flat as anything you will see in our area.
Biltmore Forest, South Asheville
Easily one of the most prestigous neighborhoods to live in, Biltmore Forest has a wide variety of homes selling anywhere from the high $6ks to $10M. If you are looking for the ultimate in luxury and status, you must consider this top notch neighborhood.
