A quick glance at some of those movies confirms that western NC is a breathtakingly gorgeous place to live.

Woody Harrelson FilmingThe latest filming is taking place right now across the western NC area including some scenes in Black Mountain. “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” hits the big screen sometime in 2017 and stars Woody Harrelson as a sheriff. There have been multiple local sightings of Woody, who debuted his Emmy-winning role on Cheers more than 30 years ago.  It’s been almost 30 years since Dirty Dancing, filmed around Lake Lure, made its silver screen debut, and it was more than 35 years ago that Being There, starring Peter Sellers, was filmed at the Biltmore. In addition to Hunger Games scenes, movies that include some locally-shot scenes include Forrest Gump, Patch, and Mastermind, which is set to be released this fall.

Black Mountain Land Rejuvenates

As you may have heard, a fire this spring burned more than 740 acres of Black Mountain and Montreat  land. After a dryer than usual winter, the fire spread quickly and took several days to contain.  A photo, taken by a runner on the Toll Road just after the fire ended, shows the degree of charring. Montreat Land Several Days Post Fire

 But if anyone doubts the rejuvenating ability of nature, all you have to do is take a look at a second photo, taken less than a month later from the same spot. The dark gray landscape has been replaced by a blanket of green, indicating that regrowth is already occurring in the area. It's likely that in a few months, it will be very difficult to see the remaining scars of the fire. Same Montreat Area a Few Weeks Later

In addition to its ability to rejuvenate, Black Mountain is a vibrant, thriving community. And as Greybeard Realty's market news indicates, the real estate market is also on the uptick.
