Asheville is a shining example of the natural beauty that Western North Carolina real estate has to offer.  Its combination of beauty, community pride and friendliness are what have put it on the top of many “Best” lists around the country.  Asheville real estate has been named one of the “top art destinations”, a “New Age Mecca”, one of the “most alive places to be” and the “happiest place for women”, just to name a few.  With over 30 fine art, mountain crafts and folk art galleries in the city as well as several performing arts centers and theaters, it is easy to see why Asheville is a mecca for art and cultural enthusiasts.  People also flock here to enjoy the miles of hiking, fishing, hunting, hot air ballooning and bicycling around God’s green earth.  Asheville is also home to the largest home in America: the Biltmore Estate, hosting visits from a million people every year.  One visit and you will see why so many people called Asheville home.

Tucked in between the gorgeous Blue Ridge & Great Smoky Mountains, the city of Hendersonville has earned its nickname as the “City of Four Seasons” through its amazing natural beauty.  Mother Nature waves her wand every few months to bring about the transition from the brightly lit flora of springtime to the green grass and yellow sunshine of summer to the earthier tones of autumn and ending with the clean freshness of winter white.

Tourism plays a huge part in Hendersonville’s local economy.  Over the years, tourists have come to visit the area and fell right in love with it, purchasing land for their summer homes so they could return year after year.  Hendersonville now enjoys a perfect balance between gorgeous residential neighborhoods and thriving commercial properties to keep the local economy stable.

Students living in Hendersonville get to take advantage of one of the top ranking school districts in North Carolina, Henderson County Public Schools System.  Hendersonville Elementary received the honor of being named a Blue Ribbon School in 2007, an honor shared by only five other schools in the entire state of North Carolina.

Historic downtown Hendersonville holds the heart of the community in its gorgeous, picturesque grasp.  Many of the community’s social events happen here throughout the year, including the North Carolina Apple Festival, which draws 200,000 visitors to this small town every year over Labor Day weekend.  The Apple Festival is a celebration of the fact that Hendersonville is responsible for over 75% of the apples grown in the state.

I hope this information has been helpful.  I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about the beautiful Hendersonville area.
