The things I love about Asheville, Swannanoa and Black Mountain. . .Diversity - In addition to North Carolina natives, the area has a significant population that hail from other states. People with diverse interests and backgrounds. Topographic diversity - mountains, waterfalls, forests and farms. Great for everything from hiking to berry picking. The area encourages hobby/craft participation. Classes are offered in just about every imaginable interest from metal working to fine arts. The mountains cry out for hikers and the Blue Ridge Parkway attracts leafers and bikers.
Our favorite restaurants in the area are the Morning Glory and Ole Gucomoles in Black Mountain and Pomodora and Panera Bread in Asheville. Ingles is the closest grocery store. It is about 7 minutes from the house. Earth Fare is located in Ashevile. Black Mountain has a speciality shop with organic meats, wines and cheeses.
Why we bought our house. . .The house has a wonderful open floor plan. It has a big, bold 17' window that overlooks the wooded back yard. Hardwood floors, granite counters. A cozy upstairs den perfect for reading or watching television. Plenty of storage and room for guests and hobbies. The neighborhood is rolling, wooded, quiet and located between Asheville and Black Mountain.
A few other things that I can mention. . .We are located minutes from the Asheville Christian Academy, which has a great reputation. We enjoy visiting wineries in the area, trying local beers, quilting, knitting, working out at Cheshire Fitness Center, yoga, hiking, reading on our front or back porch while watching the humming birds, flower gardening and motorcycling or driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Our neighborhood is great. It is situated just minutes from Asheville and Black Mountain. If hiking is your thing you could hike from your front door to the trails at Warren Wilson or Owen Park. If you like to shop we're just minutes from Asheville Mall, downtown Asheville or the cute shops of Black Mountain.
Our utility costs are very reasonable. The four zones of the heating/cooling system affords great control of those areas we may not use at all times. The utility billing is as follows:
Avg 200 gal/yr @$2.45/gal"

The thing we love about Black Mountain is the quaint downtown with all the different shops and the great restaurants. They have a 4th of July parade and a fun Christmas festival. Also you can be hiking in just a few minutes - the beauty is breathtaking.
We love to eat Mexican food at Ole' Guacamoles. Other favorites include Dark City Deli and Mac's for burgers. We shop at Ingles grocery, which is located right across the street. It is the biggest grocery store in the area and they have everything we are looking for.
When we bought the property we loved the quietness and the privacy. It is surrounded by trees and we have only one house on our street. The house has many windows to enjoy all the great views. We love our deck for meals and BBQ. The floors are Canadian cherry and are beautiful. The basement is a favorite hangout to play games or watch TV.
The Black Mountain area is such friendly place. The quality of life is fantastic. Slow paced with many activities to choose from.
The school system is very good with many caring teachers. We love the natural beauty, great restaurants and friendly people.
We enjoy hiking and biking, which you can do right out your door. Montreat is close by which has some of the best hiking in western NC.
Our neighborhood is great because we are secluded and it is very quiet. The area is fun to go walking and everybody is so friendly. You can walk to town or to restaurants close by.
Our utility costs are better than we have experienced in other areas we lived in. The winters are not extreme and the summers are mild. Progress Energy for electric and PSNC for gas.
