“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. “
