Sellers Say
“I love Asheville because it has great arts and music, local markets, and University of NC at Asheville events. The four seasons are mild with a beautiful leaf season in the fall. The Biltmore House and Gardens, the NC Arboretum, and close proximity to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park which are favorites.
My favorite restaurants are Vincenzo's, Carmelas, Pappas and Beer, Carrabas, Barley's Pizza and Taproom, OutBack, Bonefish Grill, and Asheville Pizza and Brewing.

I usually shop at Ingles or BiLo grocery, but sometimes drive across town to the Fresh Market. I also go to the health food groceries Earth Fare and GreenLife. We were drawn to the acreage suitable for horses (which we had for a while) and gardening, and a country look and feel yet very close to town, shops and medical facilities. We have woods, a stream with small waterfalls, open pasture with a barn.

We're only 4 miles via the Blue Ridge Parkway to the VA Medical Center, and 10 miles to the Mission hospitals and surrounding doctors offices.

Asheville was featured on a TV special recently as one of the 10 most beautiful places to live in the US. People of many ethnic and political types live peacefully together. The crime rate is low, and medical care rivals that of medical school universities..

Asheville has great schools, a university, college for seniors and more.

For country living very close to an eclectic and dynamic small city, this location can't be beat. Although we have an Asheville address we are just outside the city limits so pay only county taxes.

Our interests on and near this property are hiking, golf, gardening, tree planting, and cruising the Parkway in our convertible.

We are in the country with only seven houses on our private road, yet we're right next to the Blue Ridge Parkway and only 3 miles from the Asheville Mall. Neighbors are friendly and look out for each other.

Our church has a gardening project they've done in our pasture. It's great to look out and see 10-20 volunteers growing food for the needy and the Food Bank on our land. “

Seller Says
"We love Asheville because there's always something new to do - outdoor activities like hiking, biking, boating, and visiting parks; cultural activities like theatre, live music, street festivals, and art gallery crawls; and great dining and nightlife. It's a true four-season destination: a cool refuge in the summer, a perfect base for immersion in fall color, a cozy destination for the holiday season, and a beautiful location to watch spring unfold.    

Our favorite restaurants in walking distance include Bouchon for French cooking, Heiwa Shokudo for sushi, Cucina 24 and The Market Place for special dinners, and Tupelo Honey Cafe for Sunday brunch. Also needing a mention are Salsa's for a fun Caribbean meal, The Beer Garden for cozying up near the fire for a fortifying winter meal and drink, and Zambra's for a sophisticated meal of tapas. To say nothing of some fantastic places a short drive away, such as Rezaz and Fig in Biltmore Village. Better yet, many places offer the option of outdoor dining which is a beautiful way to appreciate the cool Asheville climate. And I have to mention French Broad Chocolates for a great place to spend an afternoon or an evening.    
We shop for groceries at the French Broad Food Coop, which is in walking distance, and Greenlife when we need to stock up.    

We were drawn to the home by its great layout (loft openness with a bedroom that can be closed off behind French doors for privacy), European flair, and corner location. There is no better way to end a day than with all the windows open, a cool breeze wafting through, and the muted sounds from Pack Square and Broadway providing a gentle background to a dinner conversation.    
Asheville is a great location for the young and young-at-heart.  The sense of urban community, nestled among the natural wonders of the mountains, attracts a diverse and talented cross-section of individuals. The town has an energy that is hard to find anywhere else.   
We appreciate having the public library so close, as well as several good bookstores. The rooftop garden is an unbeatable place to watch the July 4th fireworks, and a visit to Biltmore House during Christmas should be on anyone's itinerary.    
Our interests and hobbies center around Asheville's natural wonders, including the Blue Ridge Parkway and hiking trails that start from it; gardens including the Arboretum and Botanical Garden; and kayaking on the French Broad river and Lake Lure.  
We are right in the heart of downtown, so we are steps from some of the best restaurants, art galleries, and performances on Pack Square. Favorites, if we had to try to narrow it down, include the Blue Spiral, Shindig on the Green and Downtown After 5. The Fine Arts Theatre is steps away, with a good selection of movies. The Asheville Community Theatre is close by as well - we've been happy to run into several of the actors, later, on the street or at local businesses. This list doesn't do the town justice of course; for many weekend visits, we park the car in the garage and don't move it until we leave for home.

The Sellers say:
The Cane Creek part of Fairview is the most gorgeous part of Buncombe County and our home is in an area of Fairview that is still almost all large plots of land with beautiful horse farms all along the way to our house. It's fifteen minutes to Tunnel Road and fifteen minutes to Airport Road so it is the perfect location to access the best shopping in either direction. Cane Creek is still considered to be the best and most sought after school district in the county.

We love to eat at Angelo's, Piazza wood fired pizza, Pizza and More, Subway, Sonic

Grocery stores include Ingles and Food Lion

Spectacular view, beautiful gated neighborhood, beautiful surrounding area, convenient location. The Cane Creek area is one of the most beautiful areas of all of Western North Carolina. I am a native of Buncombe County and I love all of this area but have always had a dream of being able to live in the Cane Creek part of Fairview.

The Cane Creek district is very sought after and thought by many to be the best school district in all of Buncombe County.

This house is just a premier house in every way. It is very large, very elegant, and planned very carefully to be a pure pleasure to live in. It is very economical to heat and cool because of the Geo-Thermal Heating and Air-conditioning system. The large, hand hewn granite rocks were cut and laid to match the incredible exclusive style of the Old Edward's Inn and Spa in Highlands, NC. This heavy Old World Style of rock work blends with beautiful pebbledash to complete a gorgeous exterior. The interior is equally stunning with walnut hardwood floors and stairs, ten foot ceilings, eight foot doors, extremely artistic hand made cabinetry throughout the house, a huge laundry room, 110" theater room, ....well you really just need to see this.

We love hiking, biking, running, walking. Our home is backed up to a beautiful mountain that has miles of wonderfully maintained trails, accessible from our neighborhood, traversing our side of the mountain and going all the way over the mountain into the Hooper's Creek district.
The neighborhood is on Brush Creek Road. It is a perfect road for running and biking. It is flat and beautiful all the way to Cane Creek Road.

There is a really nice flowing creek at the entrance to Monarch with a bridge, gazebo, nice large grassy areas that go right up to the creek banks, and a wonderful playground."
