"Seller Says"
The things I love about our town is that our house is in the country, which is the atmosphere I was raised in, but with the benefits of a city less than 20 minutes away.  We have a MALL!  and BONUS a outlet mall is coming!  We have awesome restaurants!  We have the most amazing spa resort (Grove Park Inn).  We have outdoor activities like hiking, zip lines, rafting, tubing, water skiing and snow skiing.   We have the Biltmore House!  I mean if this place was good enough for the Vanderbilts, well, need I say more?   We have great parks and nightlife.  We have a huge music scene.  We love our running programs.  We love our high school football with fierce competitions between local teams.  And it is a wonderful place for retirees and for raising a family.   
We love to eat at Bonefish on Tunnel Road and Carrabba's on Tunnel Road and Airport Road.  Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is a place we go usually once a month or so.  We enjoy going to Biltmore Park for a movie and then dinner at 131 Main or Hickory Tavern.     
The Ingles on Leicester Highway is the GOTO place for groceries but I also love to go the Earth Fare at Westgate for the organic selection and the deli they have. Its incredible!  For farm fresh options, I always go to the Farmers Market.  The have the best in flowers and plants and the most incredible "farm to table" food.  My uncle actually comes from my home town (Lake Lure) to sell his vegetables.  I love my veggies!!  We have two gas stations and a Dollar General is steps away...just saying.   
I was drawn to the fact that we could have more privacy and an incredible view without leaving the school district and our friends in this area. This is the place my husband grew up in and for me it feels like home.  A small town close to big city.  Couldn't get any better. We own two gas stations in this community and are proud to support our local people.  It is small town where you can get as connected as you want or be a reclusive as you want.          We enjoy church and family.  We love boating and traveling.  Our family is big into sports either by participating in games or watching.  We love to workout and train.  We support our local schools by being on the local Booster Club Board and Advisory Committee for Erwin High School.  I coach cheerleading and cross country at the small private school our children attended.  Both attend or has attended public high school.  Our son is currently attending UNC Charlotte and is a sophomore or daughter is a sophomore at Erwin High.     
Our neighborhood is great for privacy but also it has a lots of children.  Our house is situated so that if you want to stay out of the hassle of kids banging down the door, you are fine.  But if you want large quantities of kids, you just pass thru the private gate and BAM!  you have oodles!!  We have a number of retired people but we also have new families.  New houses are springing up and houses new on the market are being snatched up.
