"Seller Says" 


The things I love about Black Mountain are too numerous to list, however, here's my top 3"...



1)The mix of people...we're a cosmopolitan city all dressed up like a little mountain village when you get to know who lives here, where they've been, what they've accomplished...but there's no pretense.  Everyone socializes with everyone. 

2) We're a completely self-sufficient town, and Asheville is just down the road a bit, on the rare occasion that you can't find what your looking for here. 

3) The beauty of our town...it just doesn't get more charming than Black Mountain when you combine the people, the mountains, the architecture of the town...it's the perfect place to live.  I'm a seventh generation Mississippian and I want to be buried right here."   

We LOVE to eat at The Morning Glory Cafe...Sunday brunch is amazing.  My children absolutely love to walk down and have breakfast and lunch...and my wife and I enjoy strolling down for dinner in the evenings.    We have a lot of options for grocery shopping.  

My family shops Black Mountain Farmer's Market, Black Mountain Health Food Store, our weekend Tailgate Market, and (when we need a larger experience) at Bi-Lo because it's small and very manageable.  When we need a bigger store, Ingles flagship store is literally right around the corner from our house.     

We bought the very first lot in Cheshire before there was even a road into the village.  We knew that "the corner lot in the park and right on the creek" would not be for sale very long, so we bought it as soon as we laid eyes on it.    

We love Black Mountain because of the eclectic population, the arts and music scene, the food scene (bad restaurants can't survive...and my wife is a Culinary Institute of America alum), and the relaxed way of life.  

Asheville is consistently named one of the best places to live...and Black Mountain is Asheville's best-kept secret!   




(See map of schools above) As parents of school-age children, Black Mountain is ideal.  We have a wonderful public school, several charter schools, montessori, and a number of private schools.  The educational options are tremendous for such a small town.  We love our home.  We designed it ourselves and planned on living here forever.  We love the open floor plan that makes entertaining a breeze while the eye picks up the traditional and old-world details that make people think this house has been here for a century. 

We love to just walk around downtown Black Mountain and the Village of Cheshire and visit with our neighbors.  It's impossible to be in a bad mood because we're constantly running into friends who make us smile.  

There's so much to do here...we garden in the Cheshire Community Garden, we hike and jog on our trails and nearby mountains, we play tennis at The Cheshire Racquet Club, we workout at The Cheshire Fitness Center (the cleanest, nicest, and least intimidating gym in Western North Carolina), and we sit on our front porches and back patios with friends for conversation.   

Our neighborhood is amazing!  We have Porch Parties, we have gatherings in one of the parks...often with live music, we all jog or walk for exercise together, we play tennis at our racquet club, we swim and workout together at our fitness center, we all walk to the mailboxes together, we watch out for each other...my children can get on their bikes and ride all around Cheshire Village and I don't have to worry...if I can't see them, I know that our neighbors can.  We're all like one big family.

This home has everything people are looking for in the mountains: (1) The authentic mountain town of Black Mountain within 3 minutes for arts, restaurants and shops and the larger city, Asheville, just a 20-minute drive away;(2) A friendly, walkable, attractive neighborhood containing homes of a similar caliber;(3) A homesite perfectly-positioned on the Cheshire park; (4) A home with architecture and materials impressive enough to be featured in national publications; (5) A fair price for all of the above.

  9. Truly a one of a kind home on a picturesque piece of property. My favorite is the custom oversized front door! We will miss having the Counce family in the Village, but look forward to welcoming new neighbors.

  10. People who care about details created a warm, welcoming atmosphere in this home. Yep, that's Scott & Katherine Counce. The house reflects Katherine's elegance and Scotty's Southern roots. Southern Living magazine picked the home for its holiday issue a few years ago. What more can I say!

  16. You can see how many wonderful neighbors are supporting the sellers! This is a snapshot of the warmth of the Cheshire community. When I went to preview this home I was welcomed in and got a great perspective on the home and the neighborhood. I think any family would be happy here with the community. The house is beautiful too! Wonderful finishes, high end appliances, and a wonderful back deck!

  20. Love the rocking chair front porch that greets you before you head into the LOVELY house. The kitchen is so bright, great pantry, neat features, and modern feel that's also very cozy and traditional. Great space for lots of guests and your whole family! Cheshire is so convenient and accessible to the interstate and restaurants, the fitness center, and shops.

  21. One of the first things you notice other than the welcoming neighborhood is the custom stone work and great porch space on this magnificent home. And what a cool front door!! You have the charm of Black Mountain and very close to Asheville. What a great combination.

  23. Everything about the architectural design catches and awes the eye. There is no question why Southern Living featured this magnificant home. The wrap around front porch is as charming and friendly as the Village of Chesire.

  24. Wow! Like a model home!! I love the inside but what about the back? Stone fire pit and sitting area overlooking the bold stream!! And the media room in the basement. Great for entertaining.

  25. Spectacular from the Old Country style front porch to the Southern, magnificent columns on the front porch and inside the home. So much thought has gone into making this home magnificent. Highest quality material in every room possible. Amazing backyard sitting area sitting next to a creek - truly a rare piece of land. Close to the WONDERFUL C.D. Owen School district, restaurants of Black Mountain, nightlife of Asheville, without even mentioning the endless activities offered by the beautiful surrounding mountains.
