Asheville, North Carolina

“It’s no secret that America’s southern cities are having a moment,” says Indagare’s Biggs Bradley. “Asheville has a character that is at once hipster and classic Americana.” Cradled by the Blue Ridge Mountains, the city is home to gorgeous scenery (including a lovely botanical garden), historic mansions (the 19th-century Biltmore Estate is the largest private home in the world) and a remarkable arts scene. “Don’t miss Woolworth Walk to shop the works of dozens of local artisans and stop for a milkshake at the preserved luncheonette counter. But Asheville isn’t limited to classic cuisine; hungry travelers can enjoy everything from tapas to innovative cocktails to Asian street food.”

What’s new at Ciel!

At Ciel, we are always happy to provide you with new information on what’s going on around and on top of Elk Mountain.  In the past few months Lots 5 and 7 were sold to happy new owners who have begun clearing the brush on these great pieces of land that overlook the city of Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains, including Mount Pisgah.

We’ve also had a major visit from the Department of Transportation and they have been kind enough to repave all of Elk Mountain Scenic Highway,  paint all new traffic lines and have also installed guard rails on all turns leading up to Ciel where our residents Feel the Earth and Touch the Sky everyday.

The weather in Asheville has also provided us with a huge amount of snowfall and this has been both fun and beautiful.  Elk Mountain Scenic Highway is cleared every six hours during a storm and the road is maintained very well, allowing residents and folks just looking at the views to enjoy safe travel!

We look forward to seeing you up on the mountain and are always happy to meet with clients looking for land to build or new homes with views.

Contact Jason Cahill at 828 507 0466 or jason@ciel-property.com   for more information.

Fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains

The mornings are getting colder and the afternoons are getting cooler here in the Blue Ridge Mountains and Asheville.  We are a very lucky part of the country during this time of year.  Not only do we get to experience the cooler temperatures, but also the fall foliage flourishes throughout western North Carolina.

It’s during this time where many visitors from across the state, country, and world come to visit the beautiful mountains that we call home.  Many visitors also come at this time of year to look for second homes or seek to move to the area. Below are links to some of the best Fall drives and tips on what to do in the area whilst you are visiting.

Tired of the HEAT in Florida?

There is an easy solution to your troubles with the HEAT in Florida and that answer is:  Summer at your second home in Asheville, NC.  During the 70s, 80s, and 90s, South Florida became the go to spot for northerners trying to escape the cold of their native north eastern towns and cities.  South Florida became quickly over populated and the once remote towns and beaches known for relaxation and warmer temperatures became home to packed grocery stores, pools, and beaches became the norm.  Those same folks that moved to Florida for an escape are now reconsidering their choice, especially when it comes to the hottest months of the year.  If the rest of the country has become HOT, Florida has become an OVEN.  Many of the sun worshippers of Florida have decided that Asheville, NC offers a complete respite to not only the heat, but the overcrowding, and the haute-gauche that dominates Southern Florida.

 

Asheville, North Carolina is a hidden gem in the the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  Downtown Asheville is the home to several world recognized restaurants such as Night Bell, Cúrate, Posana, and the list goes on.  If Asheville is a gem, then Downtown Asheville is a Diamond, especially in the world of architecture with it’s expansive preservation of Art Deco throughout the city.  Theatre, Museums, and Cultural Events are ever present and constantly changing.  The River Arts District offers warehouse conversions into artist and craft studios creating a new part of the city that creates more energy.

If you are thinking of moving to Asheville or have questions about living in The Blue Ridge Mountains.  We at Ciel are happy to help you!  We offer luxury homes and land for sale on Elk Mountain Scenic Highway.  Jason Cahill is happy to help you find your second home or your new permanent residence in Asheville.

Southern Highland Craft Guild at Ciel

quilt-6

The Southern Highland Craft Guild has chosen the work of Caroline Manheimer to be featured at The Prive in our mountaintop community at Ciel. Caroline Manheimer works in painting, fiber, and uniforms. She is an avid and professional quilter and her works are displayed in many galleries throughout the country. The quilts currently on display at 565 Elk Mountain Scenic Highway were chosen to meet the aesthetic needs of the modern home in which they are currently hung.

quilt-12

Manheimer’s quilts are not of the ordinary type that one sees in most traditional quilting circles or galleries. The quilts she specializes in use traditional methods, but are of modern art quality and are stunningly hung throughout the home to bring Southern Highland Crafts into the space that was built using local artisans and craftsmen. Both the Southern Highland Craft Guild and the developer, David Zimmerman, believe that their cooperation adds value to all art forms from crafts to architecture and design within the Western North Carolina Mountain Region of Asheville NC.

Three quilts of Caroline Manheimer are currently on display in a first attempt to merge local architecture designed by Jason Weil with the crafts of local artisans within the community. Future installations will occur throughout the year and in future spec homes throughout the community at Ciel.
To learn more about Caroline Manheimer read below a statement from her website:

“During the sixties, I tie-dyed my curtains. In the seventies I taught tie-dye and batik at the Danish evening school and in my garage when we lived in San Diego. I continued to dye fabric and take art classes in the midst of a library career and raising a family. After workshops with Nancy Crow in 1995 and Joy Boutrop in 1997, I started making quilts and dyeing cloth using increasingly complex surface design techniques.

In 1999 I was juried into the Southern Highlands Craft Guild and the following year into the Piedmont Craftsmen, Inc. In 2008 I completed a Master’s degree in fiber art at ETSU. Since then I have focused on different surface design techniques while introducing conceptual elements into my work. These include formal elements – layering, gesture, the animation of space – and psychological or affective states combined with personal history.” -Caroline Manheimer
