Livingston Farms in Fletcher

Livingston Farms in Fletcher, NC is a large community developed by Windsor Aughtry. There are about 500 homes in this quaint community located between Asheville and Hendersonville. The homes in this subdivision have open floor plans, two car garages, and spacious rooms. Livingston Farms is comprised of one story, one story with loft, and two story homes.

There are a few different sub-communities in Livingston Farms all with their own individual characteristics. Many people who buy these homes customize them to their liking. The Eskritt Group has helped many buyers and sellers in this community and we have seen many upgrades including wood floors, granite countertops, and extravagant sunrooms!

Livingston Farms is made up of many different people, primarily younger middle-class families. The reason this subdivision is so great for young families is because the homes are large and affordable. There are 4 bedroom 2.5 bathroom homes for under $250,000. All the homes in Livingston Farms have good-sized lots with plenty of room for the children. These also make great homes for the elderly because Windsor Aughtry builds a great one level living floor plan. These homes were built in the early to mid 2000’s, so they are relatively new.

Fletcher, North Carolina homes are becoming much more desirable as the outskirts of Asheville continue to rise. Because these homes are outside the Asheville city limits, they qualify for USDA financing; meaning you can purchase these homes with $0 down!

The town of Fletcher has a lot of amenities and of course Asheville is only a short drive away. Fletcher has the feel of being more rural but very close to town. Living in Fletcher on the Henderson County side also has its perks compared to living on the Buncombe County side. Henderson County has been known to charge less county taxes than Buncombe County and being outside the city limits, you save on city taxes as well. The town of Fletcher, however, does charge its own taxes but they are definitely less expensive than living in the city of Asheville in a similar home.

The homeowners association in Livingston Farms covers a few things, which keeps costs low and affordable for the homeowners as well as protecting their investment at the same time. The homeowners association currently covers the common area maintenance as well as the streetlights. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to cover their own yard maintenance, which isn’t always the case in other Windsor Aughtry communities.

Lake View Park in Asheville

Lake View Park is one of Asheville’s premier residential communities with beautiful real estate and outstanding views. It has a rich history and is a well-established, well-maintained community surrounding Beaver Lake, just inside the city limits of Asheville. Frequently I am asked, “Where can you get both scenic mountain and water views?” This is the only place in Asheville where you can get both. Beaver Lake and the park are both owned by the residents, which is a great connection to your neighbors and community.

Nestled in the north side of Asheville North Carolina, Beaver Lake is owned and maintained by its residents, it is enjoyed by the residents and their guest for boating, fishing, jogging, nature walks, picnics and just the magnificent views of sunsets, sunrise, and water and mountain views. The residents also employ a warden to help maintain and enforce the rules of the lake and park for the residents and their guests. The history documents for the neighborhood are all available on the residents’ website at www.thelakeviewpark.org.

The homes within this unique Asheville community vary in both design and architecture. The available homes include historic, mid century, contemporary and new construction all within a short distance to downtown Asheville and the many shops and restaurants along Merrimon Avenue.

This community consists of approximately 485 homes and I can tell you from listing and selling homes in this neighborhood that everyone with whom I have talked to, loves living in the neighborhood. Some home buyers that I have worked with have looked for years and planned for the day when they can own a home here. With the dogwoods blooming and spring finally here, the neighborhood is especially tranquil. The average time residents own in this neighborhood is well above the average of other neighborhoods because of the strong and active residents in the Association.

The Eskritt Group is knowledgeable and familiar with this neighborhood and have experience in helping both buyers and sellers, buy and sell with success. Contact us today, with any questions about selling your home or current homes for sale in Asheville’s Lake View Park.

Grove Park Neighborhood in Asheville

As one of the most premier residential areas in all of Asheville, filled with historic homes bordered by the Grove Park Inn and golf course on tree-lined streets, nothing quite captures the imagination of future homebuyers more than this prime real estate area of the Grove Park Neighborhood. Grove Park Sunset Mountain neighborhood has all the amenities like sidewalks and neighborhood mediums that are not only traffic calmers but also beautiful gardens and floral blooms in any season. Of my 30 years in real estate, no other neighborhood has been asked about by potential buyers more than Grove Park Sunset Mountain.

This neighborhood, designed by E.W. Grove in the early 1900’s, has many historical buildings and homes including but not limited to St. Mary’s Parish, and homes of the Tudor Revival style like the house that was built in 1936 for Edgar Fordtran, Colonial Revival and a Spanish Revival style home built for Ralph Worthington, a home designed by Richard Sharp Smith, and a refined example of a Colonial Revival style house built for William Jennings Bryan.

This area was first developed by E.W. Grove, a St. Louis millionaire pharmacist, as he began buying property in 1904 and giving land to the city for E.W. Grove Park on Charlotte Street. The first phase of his residential Grove Park was platted in 1908 and in 1913 he opened the Grove Park Inn, a sought after resort by anyone visiting Asheville.

This resort and spa is now part of the Omni Hotels throughout the country. With a $25 million transformation, The Omni Grove Park Inn is ready to offer you Southern comforts and modern conveniences whether your tastes lean toward the golf course or expansive spa facilities both for the guests and for locals alike, all within the historic original structure that the Inn is famous for.

There is nothing like taking a visitor and guest to the Grove Park Inn at sunset and viewing the spectacular mountain sunset views from the terrace. This might be the reason that some folks just can’t resist the nearby neighborhood of Sunset Mountain to find their dream home.  Adjacent and behind the Grove Park Inn is the Sunset Mountain neighborhood which not only looks to the west for those sunset views but also the views of the thriving downtown and city lights of Asheville, NC. The cityscape views have almost become as popular as those sunset amazing mountain views. Check them out for yourself. This just might be the next neighborhood you want to call your “home in the Mountains”.

The Eskritt Real Estate Group has all the homes for sale on their website as well as the expertise to bring buyers and sellers together.

Crowell Farms in Asheville

This beautifully scenic West Asheville neighborhood of Crowell Farms combines single-family homes called “Villas” with townhomes and a new construction section now underway, called Bonito Ocaso (meaning land of the beautiful sunsets).

These outstanding Asheville Villas are single-family homes for which the Homeowners Association provides lawn services and common area maintenance of sidewalks. They also provide upkeep for the attractive tree-lined streets with benches for resting and viewing the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.

This secluded West Asheville neighborhood has no through streets, which makes it a fantastic community for children, walking, biking and taking your dog for a stroll. Of course the most impressive spots are the sidewalk resting benches for connecting with neighbors and viewing Mt. Pisgah, southwest of Asheville. The view is spectacular “around sundown” when the sun sets over the mountains. All of the Villas include year round lawn care for a low monthly fee.

Another section of Asheville’s Crowell Farms is the desirable Tuscan style homes of Bonito Ocaso. This area includes mostly one story homes designed for lock and go easy living. Easy living is designed into these homes with lifetime tile roofing, cement stucco and stone exterior. The interiors are crafted with the highest standards and attention to every exquisite detail; featuring wood-style flooring and granite counter tops. The HOA here also maintains the lawns. Surrounded by Gaston Mountain to the South, these Tuscan style homes with mountain views cannot be found anywhere else in the Asheville area and only in a few places across the entire state of North Carolina.

To finish out the development, the townhomes provide all the amenities of the community mentioned plus you have complete freedom from home maintenance. The Homeowners Association in this part of Crowell Farms not only takes care of the lawn but also handles all outside maintenance of your Asheville home for a low monthly fee.
