"Seller Says"
The things I love about the Asheville/Swannanoa area are numerous! My home is close to downtown Asheville, yet has the country atmosphere of rolling hills, valleys, and breathtaking mountain views. So many walking trails, with Warren Wilson College next door.. hiking, biking, relaxing. Owen Park is on the other side of my community, with level walking trails, pond and picnic areas.

We love to eat in Black Mountain, only 10 minutes away. Two great pizza places, great brunch at Morning Glory, new restaurants to try, and toward Asheville is a great, new Latino eatery. Pomodoro's is a fabulous Italian eatery as well.

Grocery stores are plentiful and close by, with Ingles Grocery 5 minutes away... a very large, excellent, reasonable southeastern chain.  Asheville Mall is just 10-15 min. away.. a great place to shop and to walk in the winter. My favorites are the upscale consignment shops in the area. Another plus-- Trader Joe's is coming!   

When I bought the property I was drawn to the combination of easy access to Asheville and surrounding areas, but also having the luxury of the country feel, with walking trails, valleys, mountains so close and feeling the beauty of the mountains.  In my opinion, this townhome would be perfect for any single person who wanted maintenance-free living, or a perfect summer spot for a couple. Neighbors watch out for each other, too.   

The Asheville area is wonderful because of the eclectic flavor. There is acadamia, free-spirited young and baby boomer ages, liberals and conservatives, great cultural flavor with the symphony, arts and so many gifted crafts people. Great outdoor advantages, great change of seasons, fantastic medical physicians and service. Very friendly and safe. Good cost of living. What more could you want?    

A few other things I could mention is the health care resources are outstanding, from the trauma center of Mission Hospital, the Heart Center, to the Keever Hospice Center at Care Partners Health Services.    

We love to explore the many outdoor activities, such as the Arboretum, Biltmore Estate, the Botanical Gardens, Bent Creek biking and hiking trails, and so much more.    

A terrific hobby for seniors is the Center For Creative Retirement, on the campus of UNCA. Too much to write about...check it out for yourselves.    

Our neighborhood is great for community caring, yet respecting each other's privacy. We have regular potlucks, pool gatherings, and as much or little social time as you want.    

My utility costs were a pleasant surprise.. much lower than previous areas of the country I've lived in. Maybe it's the temperate climate here.
