Featured Asheville NC Home for Sale

When it comes to quintessential mountain living, most people think of beautiful views.  Of course, to get those views, you usually need to gain elevation, which often involves negotiating a steep driveway or gravel road.  But that's not always the case.  Laurel Ridge, a neighborhood just north of Black Mountain, is home to some of the most incredible mountain views in Western North Carolina, and you may be surprised how easy they can be to access.

39 Great Aspen Way

This home in Laurel Ridge offers many of the features that vacation home buyers desire - great year-round views, a fireplace, and easy access to town.  In this case, we are talking about downtown Black Mountain, which features a wide variety of restaurants, shops, and galleries.  For folks looking to retire, other requirements usually include one-level living (including the master suite on the main level), a garage, and easy entry to the house (few steps).

This home is unique in that it has a very flat driveway (and the road to the house has a gentle grade), as well as a 3-car garage, which is a bit of rarity in the Asheville area for a home with a view.  Above the garage is 700 square feet of unfinished (studs in place) apartment space and another deck.

Inside, the wood flooring and beadboard ceilings give the home a very "mountain home" feel.  And what mountain home would be complete without an expansive deck to take in the view!

Laurel Ridge Opens Fire Substation

Laurel Ridge has a Black Mountain fire substation that acts as first responders for the North Fork Valley area.  This area includes the Asheville Water Shed, Grove Stone Quarry, the residents who live in the area, as well as the north side of Montreat.  Laurel Ridge has nine volunteers that respond to the first alert and 911 calls, which means that in case of an emergency, a Laurel Ridge neighbor will be showing up at your home first.  Our community also has it's own water supply, with four 40,000 gallon water towers and many hydrants through the nine miles of roads.


Above the fire station we have a new community room called "The Lodge."  This is where we have the new First Friday community potlucks, the annual "Gathering" in October, and holiday parties.  This facility can also be rented out by Laurel Ridge residents for family functions. 

Under the leadership of our new POA President, Lyons Williams, the residents have instituted an emergency response team that is putting together plans for natural emergencies and interruption of food supply and utilities.  This is just one of the twelve committees of volunteers who work to make Laurel Ridge such a well-running community.
