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.
