The things I love about Weaverville are numerous. It's a great place, very close to Asheville, but with a small town feel. Despite that, it's only about 10 minutes to the activities in Asheville. Weaverville has all you need. The restaurants are delicious and there's plenty of access to shopping. Also, this home is located close to all the schools in the desirable North Buncombe district. Lake Louise is also a nice place to take a stroll, or to relax on one of the many benches around the lake.
I love several restaurants in Weaverville. Blue Mountain Pizza is a staple known for its great pizza and atmosphere. Check it out one night when they have local music. Stoney Knob Cafe is a very unique place with great food and lots of options. Brunch here is very hard to beat. Another great place to eat is The Weaverville Crepery. Try one of their many unique crepes on their nice patio on the north end of town. Twisted Laurel is new, tastes delicious, and stays busy. It's located in the old Weaverville Fire Department and the atmosphere is pretty cool. Bellagio's is good and very popular as well. Fast food options are here as well, as is the nicest Subway you'll ever come across. Access to grocery stores and shopping is just 5 minutes away via a scenic drive through the country. Ingles is here, as is a Wal-Mart Supercenter. Lowes, Dollar Tree, GameStop, as well as several other stores are in the same vicinity. There are several banks located nearby, as well as a post office. Flynn's Gym in Weaverville is close and provides a relaxing place to work out without the crowds.
When I bought this property I was drawn to the location and setting. I have lived in Weaverville my whole life and know where the locations are with easy access to the highway, stores, and restaurants. Another thing to keep in mind in the Weaverville/Asheville area are the road conditions in the winter. I grew up on a mountain and after sliding down the road for years in the winter, the ease of access to this home was very appealing. At this home, there's no real hills or dangerous curves to worry about when it does snow. I also wanted to make sure I had a property where I could come home, sit on the front porch, and relax. This home sits on a hill with a great view of the surrounding area. Birds and rabbits abound for viewing. I also wanted the privacy where I would could keep the blinds open and turn up the stereo from time to time without the fear of bothering someone. This home provided everything I wanted. I would not be selling if I wasn't relocating to another city.
It's also a very nice home with plenty of room. There's lots of storage downstairs and the large room downstairs is heated and cooled and it wouldn't take much to turn it into another room.
This area is great for many reasons. The first is obvious. Every day on the way home, regardless of the route I choose to take, I have great views of the surrounding mountains. It's rare when I get home stressed because of this, despite of the day I had at work. The climate in this area is great. It's not too hot in the summer and just cold enough in the winters where snows come in from time to time. Spring and Fall are the best times to be here though. The leaves in the fall are extraordinary. The Blue Ridge Parkway is nearby, as are plenty of public accesses to the Pisgah National Forest for camping, hiking, and fishing.
One other thing I can mention (and this will be something I really miss) is the sky. At this home you can look up and view the sky at night without the worries of lights from the city or neighborhood hindering your view. The sky in the mornings and evenings are also very pretty here. I have a ton of pics of great sunrises and evening clouds.
One thing to mention for those from out of town, lots of locals like to head to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg in Tennessee. These locations are only 90 minutes away and provide lots of interesting things to do.
I know people like to do different things and this area gives plenty of options. If you like to spend time in the outdoors, whether it be hiking, fishing, camping, hunting, rafting, mountain biking, photography, etc., you'll be hard pressed to find a place better than WNC. If you like nice restaurants and art, Asheville is your place. Motorcycle riding in the area is about as good as it gets in the world.
My neighborhood is great for just about any type of person / family. There's a great mixture of young families and retirees. Families with children will find playmates for their kids within the neighborhood. I did not have children myself, but always found the neighborhood very inviting and relaxing for a single person. It's very safe with people throughout the neighborhood at home during the day and it is very walkable. Each property is maintained well and the HOA is responsible and easy to work with.
