"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 and the Morning Glory cafe is a romantic breakfast spot! 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!  There is a Bi-Lo across the street and also a Gourmet Grocery store located inside The Village. 

We love this house for so many reasons.  It is an authentic Craftsman home with no expense spared on quality and details.  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 sipping coffee/wine on any of the 7 porches and patios.  This house is perfect for entertaining.  It has landscape lighting, a house sound system, and 3 fireplaces.  It has a great view and has three separate levels in which people can live!    

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. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, there is endless hiking, biking, fishing, and kayaking all within minutes of The Village. 
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.  Also, there is a medical building across the creek that has a family doctor, dentist, physical therapist and chiropractor!

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!    

We were attracted to Cheshire development because it's only 1/2 mile from the interstate. It has city water and sewer and ALL underground utilities including DSL and natural gas. It is the only TND (Traditional Neighborhood Development) in the area. The architecture is english craftsman and the village is adorable!  The parks, creek, restaurants and wine shop are in one neighborhood make this an amazing place to live. The views from our development are fantastic. !!! 

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 climatized 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 transferable from owner to owner!
