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


While living in Creston you may feel blissfully adrift from civilization, but our mountain property is less than 20 miles from the surprising urban haven of Asheville. Asheville offers a creative and cultural life to rival any city. The New York Times, Southern Living, Money, Mountain Bike, Outside, National Geographic Traveler, Rolling Stone, Modern Maturity and dozens of other publications have all sung the praises of the creative, cosmopolitan vibe of this special place.

Art, food, theater, music and antiques lovers will find everything to suit their tastes in Asheville's historic downtown. A dazzling array of galleries, theaters, restaurants and entertainment of every kind—from Shakespeare, fine films and live music to baseball, the symphony and ballet—all come alive in the city's energetic streets.

Asheville is also home to a variety of nationally-known attractions. The Thomas Wolfe Memorial has become one of literature's most famous landmarks. And the Biltmore Estate, built in 1895, is the largest private home in America.
