"Seller Says"
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:

              2012- $987.84
              2011- $780.08
              2012- $500.17
