Black Mountain homes and mountain properties in a private NC gated community near Asheville.

Preserving North Carolina mountain land for generations to come

Perched 8 miles outside of one of Western North Carolina's great mountain towns, above the bustle where the air is cool, life becomes uncluttered. The moments that take one's breath away are a daily occurrence when surrounded by mountains as far as the eye can see. Creston Community's vision is conservative and real; Mountaintop living responsibly. An unpretentious reverence for this mountain land, its forests, streams, and all the varieties of life that live here has guided important decisions as this 1,100 acre, multi generational mountain property was carefully developed.

In the peaceful, secluded Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina near the towns of Black Mountain and Asheville is a private gated community that awaits your exploration. Encompassed by hardwood forests that are home to a rich diversity of flora and fauna this North Carolina mountain community offers a complementary integration of modern mountain living with minimal impact to the natural beauty of the land.

Well thought out home sites in combination with extensive conservation easements create a natural backdrop to create your North Carolina mountain retreat.  The 1100 acre gated community is limited to 135 families complemented by the modern amenities of broadband internet access, the rustic comfort of the Community Center on the summit of the mountain, and the peaceful surroundings of Triple Falls Sanctuary.  Creston mountain community's roads have been carefully designed to minimize traffic; you will find no thoroughfares, only quiet lanes with generous home sites.  The mountain homesites were carefully selected to allow each mountain home privacy, allowing it to compliment the specific character of the land. The Guidelines of this NC mountain property ensure architectural integrity while allowing a range of personal expression in both design and size; encouraging homes that blend in with the natural setting and the lay of the land. The venacular architecture of this NC mountain community gets its inspiration from the Craftsmen, American lodge, bungalow, post-and-beam, and New England shingle styles.

The Developers' course has been the road less traveled; moving patiently, bucking trends, handling debt responsibly, and in the end fostering a sense of community now shared by over ninety families who have chosen Creston as their mountain retreat. More than 55% of our mountain land and its hardwood forests are in protected preserves to be enjoyed in their natural state with well - designed trail systems and inspiring community gathering areas hidden throughout.

Black Mountain lies just down a country road a piece providing a convenient backdrop for this illusion of seclusion. The town's offerings are both indigenous and transplanted as its renaissance has awakened artists and poets alike; drawn to the thriving town center, unique shops and restaurants, and a laid back pace of life.

Creston stands solid in the current world in which we live; debt free and with all amenities completed. As a private forest community, Creston answers the call of those wanting to embrace a responsible vision of mountain life. A sustainable collection of gentle ridges and rushing streams celebrates the wonders of each season unrestrained, providing the perfect setting to experience all that nature has to reveal.
