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

Creston’s mountain property will entice you with opportunities to socialize, entertain or spend quiet time enjoying the spectacular surroundings.

The Community Center was designed to bring the community together to socialize and share activities. Its library nook, indoor and outdoor stone fireplaces, spacious seating, wrap-around porches and well appointed service kitchen invites residents to enjoy this community space. Located at 3100 feet, there are spectacular long-range mountain views from the summit of Creston.

The Gazebo at the roundabout is a casual neighborhood gathering spot. Situated at 2400 feet, the timber frame shelter has seating around a stone fire pit. This place has become the neighborhood hangout after an occasional snowy afternoon of sledding.


Triple Falls Sanctuary is Creston’s secret garden; a 350-acre conservation area with forests, streams and waterfalls. This is the soul of the mountain community. A trail system allows property owners’ access to the conserved area by foot trails or a vehicular roadway.

Three waterfalls are near a designated primitive camp area and a rustic shelter whimsically named the Moonshine Cabin. Allison Falls is the premier falls on the Left Prong of the Catawba River with a viewing area overlooking the waterfall.

Exceptional care has been taken to leave the area as natural and undisturbed as possible through the conservation easement. The area is rare and honored by the residents of the Creston Community.
