I also love heading to the coffee shops in town, the Artisan and Dynamite Roasters are my favorite and so close! I love that Black Mountain is quaint, safe, and really lives like a community should... together. I also love that Montreat is also within walking distance and the trails start at the gate which is really close to our home! We love to eat at The Trailhead, The Veranda, The Ale House, The Blackbird, Ole Guacamole's, Fresh Pizza and Pasta... there are others in town, but those are our favorites depending on what type of environment and food mood we are in... they are all very good! We usually shop at Ingles because it has a ton of selection including local and organic items. The local shops in town are great too!
Looking for a great wine, the Artisan and The Merry Wine Market are great places. Looking to pick up a dessert, Black Mountain Bakery has great cakes! There is also a Bi-Lo in town which is convenient if you need to be really quick. They too have a pretty good selection!
When we bought this property we were drawn to the fact that it was close to both downtown and Montreat without being on a main road. We also loved that it would have a view and it would not be a through road, so we have no traffic! It's very peaceful! Black Mountain is the best of both worlds... it's quaint and safe and a very community oriented place to live AND it is super convenient to Asheville, which is the most enjoyable place I've ever lived! It has a little bit of everything and I love that it's a culturally rich area to live.
A few other things I can mention are the convenience with the views. The views here are just amazing... it's wonderful to have these views and still be within walking distance to town and Montreat. While the driveway is a little steep for people not used to the mountains, we've managed just fine with our vehicles which are not 4 wheel drive. So, all in all it's a wonderful package in a convenient and beautiful location! The area, the views, the open floorplan for entertaining, all of the windows in the house, the large covered front porch, the convenience of being close to Black Mountain, Montreat, and Asheville we love it all! "Of course we all like different things, but our hobbies here include a community group with friends, Crossfit group in Asheville, a yoga group in Black Mountain, and we love to hike the local trails.
We also are ""foodies"" and love to try all of the local places regularly. We also have yearly memberships at The Biltmore House and walk the trails and gardens there often. It's such a great place to live! " While we don't live in a "neighborhood" our street is fun! All of us on Painted Trillium Trail have front porches and will often stop and chat in passing. It's a little front porch road, and the neighbors are great! "Our utility costs here are great because we are in a new home with energy efficient everything! We have rented places less than a third the size of ours and they were significantly higher for utilities and we were still cold in the winter! The fact that we have new everything including windows, insulation, energy efficient toilets, thermostat, Rinnai tankless water heater etc. really helps our house run efficiently and be warm and cozy in the winter and nice and cool in the summer. The tankless water heater is awesome because you can take forever long hot showers and NEVER run out of hot water... ahhh, perfect for the Jacuzzi tub.
We use Suburban Propane (we actually have a significant credit with them because they overestimated what our average would be), we are on the payment plan there and were on around $200 a month but then had over a $2000 credit at the end of the year. Our Progress Energy bill usually runs between $45 - $50 a month. Water and sewer are through Black Mountain and run about $35 a month. "
