"The town of Hendersonville is truly a showplace of small town living in the south. The mixture of historic buildings and vibrant retail establishments separates it from most towns of its size anywhere in the nation. A walk down our tree lined Main Street during the day or early evening, and in any season, shows that gracious small town living in America need not be a thing of the past. With an abundance of great eateries and art galleries; fine clothing boutiques, jewelers, fine antique emporiums and curiosity shops of all varieties, Hendersonville is alive and well. As for staples, we have a full range of grocery locations. Everything from average fare to the finest in gourmet and organic foods to curb markets with locally grown produce And best of all, we can be there with a short ten minute drive. And should we ever tire of the charms of Hendersonville, a fifteen minute drive in the other direction takes us to the equally quaint town of Brevard.
Culturally speaking, Hendersonville boasts a fine symphony orchestra, and the Flat Rock Playhouse provides great entertainment with its diverse offerings. Outdoor concerts and street fairs are the norm during the summer months and the decorations put out for our wintertime holidays hold a candle to no one.
Our Mountain Valley neighborhood is lovingly maintained by a mix of friendly southern born natives and equally friendly retirees from across the nation who have been attracted by our low cost of living, our great mountain views and our regularly scheduled neighborhood activities. Mountain Valley is a place where you know your neighbors by their first names. You know their children and their pets and you look out for one another. As a subdivision “in the country” we are secluded enough to experience the peace and quiet that one desires, and close enough to the “big city” of Asheville and all that it offers to be there in just twenty minutes if the mood strikes. We are bordered by lush forests and the fertile French Broad River valley, and as former city dwellers we can tell you that we have found our little piece of paradise.
Western North Carolina is well known for its recreational opportunities and our home is ideally situated to take advantage of all that the area offers. We can see the Appalachian Trail from our front porch, so hiking is one option. For the fisherman, we are ten minutes away from one of the nation’s premier trout streams, the Davidson River, and within an hours drive there are literally thousands of miles of additional trout streams. A twenty minute drive will put you into the heart of the DuPont State Forest with its 10,000 acres of forests, trails and waterfalls, and golfing is just minutes away with memberships available at the Cummings Cove and Etowah Country Clubs.
We were drawn to our home by its easy upkeep, its very livable floor plan, its wonderful Blue Ridge Mountain views and all that those beautiful mountains have to offer. Facing the west, the views from our kitchen table rivals the finest postcard images as the sun sets over the mountains. Our ground floor master bedroom had great appeal, along with the home’s entertainment potential with its spacious and very private backyard deck and patios. Like a lot of folks, our family’s activities center around the kitchen. With its comfortable sitting area and wonderful cabinet space, our very large and recently remodeled kitchen has all the amenities one would expect. The fully furnished and well lit downstairs area, with its full kitchen and bath has served us well as our den, our home office, our art studio and craft area. And with its adjoining bedroom with outside entry, the entire lower level can serve as a wonderful and private in-law suite if the need arises."
