Seller Says:
Black Mountain is the perfect place to live.  It is beautiful, quaint and so convenient!  We have the benefit of being close to Asheville (10 minutes away) but yet the peace of living outside the city without all the traffic!

We love to eat date night at Thai Basil, great spicy food!  The boys love to eat burgers and ribs at Phil's Bar-B-Que and Put-Put Golf.  As a family, we like to eat at the Gluten friendly Fresh Pizza! The Artisan makes a great lunch that is healthy and fast! We love the brand new Ingles grocery store they just built in Black Mountain!  It is the Flagship store and has a gas station, Starbucks coffee and Lawn & Garden Center!

We were attracted to The Settings development because it was only 1.5 miles from the interstate.  It has city water and sewer and ALL underground utilities including DSL and natural gas.  There is a fabulous Clubhouse for parties and meetings that is at the end of our street.  The views from our development are fantastic.

The Asheville area is wonderful because it is the perfect balance of city mixed with nature.  We have 4 even seasons that are all relatively mild.  There are a ton of mom & pop shops while at the same time all the big box stores that you would want.  Asheville is very diverse and friendly and filled with Arts and Culture!

"A few other things that I can mention are that we are only a few miles away from Bill Grahams home in Montreat, the Biltmore House, and the Grove Park Inn.  We never run out of things to do or ideas of where to visit.  

The Village of Cheshire is a wonderful place to visit and has a fantastic coffee and wine bar as well as a gourmet market.  We love to cook, so we get fresh meat and seafood here, once a week, and make ourselves a gourmet dinner at a fraction of the price.  There are weekly wine tastings that are a excellent way to meet the neighbors.

People come here from all over the world to visit and move!"

We love this house for so many reasons.  It was the first house in the development and set the standard for quality and detail.  It is a Healthy Built Home so it really helps us with our allergies, and having all hand scraped wood floors is magnificent.  We really enjoy sitting around the stone fireplace and having family time or cranking up the wood stove when it is frigid out.  This house is perfect for entertaining.  It has landscape lighting and a house sound system.  It is wired for a back-up generator and has an awesome workshop space in the garage!

We are very active and have children in sports year round.  There are great facilities all around us to train, including an indoor soccer arena right here in Black Mountain.  Just one mile down the road is The Cheshire Fitness facility where we can lift weights, swim, take classes and play racquetball.  We are avid boaters so we visit Lake James all summer long which is only 35 minutes away!

Our neighborhood is great for living in a beautiful gated community but also having space from our neighbors.  There is a cute fishing pond at the entrance and great hiking trails all around us.  If you have children, or grandchildren, there is a fantastic Beanstalk playground in the development.

This home is Energy Star AND Healthy Built certified so we have an incredibly efficient home.  The insulation is spray foam so the attic spaces are acclimatized for storage and save a ton of energy.  On top of already having an incredibly energy efficient house, because it is Energy Star certified, the owner gets a 5% discount from both Progress Energy and PSNC Gas for the life of the home.  This discount is transferrable from owner to owner!


  1. You have to check out this gorgeous home in person. The Settings is a gated development that has a number of homes built and another dozen or so being built now or in design review. This is the builder's own home - this means something as this is the builder who won the viewer's choice awards at this year's Parade of Homes, as well as numerous other awards this year and others.

  2. This home is fabulous. Location and design are incredible. Must See!

  3. This is a remarkable home in so many ways and such a great price for the quality and detail. It is not easy to find a home so close to everything yet in a private neighborhood. A must see home of distinction. Gwen Bowers

  4. Stunning interior! The design is right in line with what you would expect in North Carolina. The Settings is beautiful and I love that it is close to Black Mountain and there are so many outdoor activities close by, but to be honest, the home is so comfortable I don't know why you would ever want to leave.

  5. This home is absolutely lovely!! I cannot say enough good about it...the kitchen is perfect for somebody who's serious about cooking. The wood paneling throughout the house is gorgeous. Being a builder's home ensures the BEST quality, architectural details, and crafstmanship. This house is great for a family, as there are many different spaces for people to spread out and have privacy, yet not be too separated.

  6. This is a gorgeous home with so much livable space. The coffered ceilings in the lower level are not only beautiful but also give a great comfortable feel to the downstairs family room. The main living room, dining area and kitchen create a great flow for the family whether sitting by the fire or helping out in the kitchen. The Settings is fantastic for feeling "in the country" but yet it is so close to downtown Black Mountain AND Asheville.

  8. The Settings is a gorgeous community just outside of Black Mountain and only 17 min from downtown Asheville. Beautiful views, great clubhouse and really nice neighbors. An up and coming community and a tremendous value.

  9. We have lived in the Settings for almost 2 years now and never cease to be amazed by the views and the quality of the homes in the neighborhood. Downtown Black Mountain is picture perfect as well and we enjoy all the restaurants and shops. No better place to live....

  10. This is a lovely home in a beautiful development. The Settings is a spectacular development that I am recommending to my buyers. Minutes to downtown Black Mountain and all the great restaurants, and only 15 minutes to downtown Asheville
