Beautiful Mountain Homesites Offered at Substantial Discounts

Now is the time to benefit from great prices in an established, active North Carolina mountaintop community with architecturally designed homes and many full-time residents. Creston is located about 9 miles from the charming town of Black Mountain, NC, and I-40. For the excitement of Western NC's avant-garde city of Asheville, NC drive time is 15 minutes from Black Mountain.

  • Our private community is close enough to town to be convenient but enough out of the mainstream to be comforting at this particular time.
  • Neighboring towns of Black Mountain and Old Fort are small enough to be welcoming mountain hometowns with most of the services one needs.
  • Our unique planned community is spacious enough to always feel uncrowded with large private homesites and substantial acreage common areas where social distancing is easy.
  • On-site access to high-speed fiber optic internet service from Charter Communications accommodates all teleworking from home.
  • The 1100 acre community has 500 acres of conservation and community land including waterfalls, extensive hiking trails, pocket parks and spectacular mountain views. Paved roads and gated.

Low Density, Maximum Social Distancing

Creston is a low-density community with homesites nestled among native flora. With only 135 homesites spread out thoughtfully across the 1100 acre mountaintop property, we aim for quality not quantity. Do the math – many comparable subdivisions attempt to maximize profits with 1/4 to 1 acre sites. This can result in anywhere from 500-2000 homes on the same total acreage. We took a different approach. The results are magnificent and compliment the views and nature that were already there.

Motivated Developer Equals Discounts

With the retirement of the husband and wife developers, only 19 developer-owned homesites are remaining and currently offered at substantial discounts from original pricing. For more information or a personal perspective on the general area please call or text the developer at 828.243.4404
