If you're interested in being near Asheville, NC, but in a quieter area, I suggest looking at the Arden, Hendersonville or Mills River area. One of my favorite newer subdivisions in Mills River is called The Farm at Mills River, aptly named because it used to be a farm, as so many subdivisions did. This one is an idyllic retreat for anyone seeking a serene and peaceful environment surrounded by natural beauty. It even has a small community fishing pond! The lots in this subdivision are larger than average, which is one of the reasons I love it.
If you're looking for a great neighborhood in which to plant some roots and build your dream home, this could be the place for you!
Only 6 lots remain available for sale, and you'd better grab one if you're interested! (I can introduce you to some of the local builders around here 😉) The minimum square feet needed to build in here is 1750, although most of the homes are bigger than that. Most lots will require either a crawl space or basement, and of course the house plans will be subject to review by the architectural committee.
The Farm at Mills River is being developed on an old farm on the outskirts of town, but it is conveniently located between the Asheville airport and the heart of downtown Mills River - which is still in its infancy. The neighborhood is designed to cater to a variety of lifestyles, with spacious lots that range from 1 to 2 acres in size, allowing for a lot of creativity in home design.
One of the most notable features of The Farm at Mills River is its commitment to preserving the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. The community has been designed with sustainability in mind, with an emphasis on preserving the natural environment and minimizing the impact of human activity. The subdivision boasts walking trails, a community garden, and a variety of other outdoor amenities that encourage residents to explore and appreciate the beauty of the surrounding area. The community is also just a short drive from Asheville, one of the most vibrant and dynamic cities in the Southeast, and very close to Hendersonville, NC as well.
Overall, The Farm at Mills River is an exceptional subdivision that offers a unique blend of natural beauty, community engagement, and convenience. Whether you're looking for a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life or a vibrant community that celebrates social engagement, The Farm at Mills River is an ideal place to call home. If you can see yourself building a home in this subdivision, call me asap so we can get a lot secured for you before they sell out. As an accredited buyer's agent and being certified in New Home Construction, I'd be happy to take you through the process of building in the mountains of NC.
