Buncombe County

Beautiful Buncombe County offers the best of both worlds – access to both the thriving economic and cultural city of Asheville and the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains. In addition to Asheville, Western North Carolina's most populous county includes the lovely towns of Black Mountain, Biltmore Forrest, Montreat, Weaverville, and Woodfin. While these towns are great places to live year-round, they are coveted locations for vacation homes.

Due to its ideal location in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Greater Asheville area offers residents access to a wide-rage of outdoor activities like hiking, rock climbing, fishing, mountain biking and more. When it comes time to relax, you'll find dozens of art galleries, live music venues, and fantastic restaurants.

McDowell County

McDowell County is known for the expansive section of the Blue Ridge Mountains, including Pisgah National Forest, located in the northern half of the county. Popular places to live in McDowell County include the bustling city of Marion and the idyllic mountain town of Old Fort.

Homes in Old Fort are in high-demand because of its close proximity to destinations like Pisgah National Forest, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure and Lake James.
