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.

GLASS, IT’S MORE ABOUT REFLECTION THAN FUNCTION.

Luxury Homes Asheville

Many people think Glass is just to be used to put flowers in, drink water from, or provide shelter from the outdoors by creating windows.  These are all very important glass features.  However,  for us, the most important feature that glass offers is that of reflecting light.

One of the most important things when we start designing a home is how to bring more light into a home.  We do this by adding mirrors to walls, vases to tabletops, and pretty much placing glass wherever we possibly can.

Recently, our favorite glass comes in many forms such as…

Lucite Pills by Jonathan Adler at  www.jonathanadler.com

Luxury Glass Vases by Artel at www.artelglass.com

Mirrors from www.onekingslane.com

The creative process begins by giving us a call and discussing your aesthetic needs. We are here to help you.

Modern for Sale in Asheville, NC

Pano Ext

Above:  565 Elk Mountain Scenic Highway

Asheville, North Carolina has become a hot spot for second homes and destination properties internationally.  The success of the area is highly linked back to it’s geographic location and the fact that Asheville lies within the Blue Ridge Mountains, some of the most beautiful mountains on the planet.  The mild climate and calm weather also keep people returning to this part of the country.  Asheville has adopted many great eateries and restaurants, offers a multitude of outdoor recreation, and in general is a very welcoming place for people from all cultures.

Modern Architecture is a rarity in and around Asheville.  Persons seeking mid-century modern, contemporary, or “mountain modern” have a lot to choose from in the housing market, but when you get to pure Modernism, the search becomes quite scarce.

Recently developers and builders have started to offer pure Modern to their clienteles.  nancy contemportary house

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.

River Arts Disctrict Fall Stroll for MANNA FOOD BANK

rad-signageAs always,  Asheville citizens unite for a good cause.  Many of you may be aware of the Manna Food Bank here in the great city of AVL.  If you’re not,  get to know who they are by reaching out to help them or be involved in some way that promotes them.  Their about us page states:

“MANNA FoodBank is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving Western North Carolina since 1983 and an accredited member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. MANNA is located in Asheville, North Carolina on Swannanoa River Road. In 2015 MANNA distributed 15.7 million pounds of food through some 229 community-based food assistance agencies in 16 Western North Carolina counties.”  

potterswheelAll people visiting or living in Asheville have a great opportunity to help support them this coming weekend on November 12 and 13, 2016 from 10am to 5pm.  The River Arts District is hosting their annual Fall Studio Stroll to help raise funds for the MANNA FOOD BANK.  Artists with studios in the 22 former factory buildings have teamed up again to collect non-perishable food to help feed those less fortunate than ourselves.  We can all do our part by helping out in our communities.  We at Ciel, believe that being part of our community is one of our strongest attributes.  We hope that our readers will venture to the River Arts District this weekend and do the right thing.  For more information on the event go to:  www.riverartsdistrict.com

Fall Color in Asheville, North Carolina

biltmoreWe’ve had a very slow fall color season in Asheville as the weather has remained warmer delaying the leaf change. There are still a few weeks left for great color in the Western North Carolina Region.  Leaves change from the top of the mountain and then move their way to the lower regions of mountains.   This makes it a great time to visit Asheville and the surrounding area.

Some tips we can offer you while planning your trip.

Fall on Elk Mountain Scenic Highway is absolutely gorgeous.  Do not miss it!  To access Elk Mountain Scenic Highway take Merrimon Avenue away from downtown Asheville towards Weaverville.  You should make sure to stop by Edna’s coffee shop on the way.  It will be on your left hand side just before you get to the Ingles Grocery Store.  Edna’s serves great coffee and wonderful baked goods in a cute atmosphere with fun people.   After leaving Edna’s, make a left on Merrimon to make an immediate right on Beaverdam Road.  Take Beaverdam Road about 1 mile in and take a left on Elk Mountain Scenic Highway.  Let the road take you where it leads now.  You are bound to see great fall color and amazing homes.  You will eventually drive through Ciel and continue until you get to the end of Elk Mountain Scenic Highway.fall-pics-1  At the end of the road you can immediately access the Blue Ridge Parkway going left to Craggy Gardens or going right which will lead you toward West Asheville and beyond.

Another great way to  experience the fall color in our area is to visit Mt. Pisgah,  The Pisgah National Forest, as well as,  Chimney Rock State Park.  Check times and other event schedules for these great natural attractions by clicking on the links!  Pisgah National Forest will offer you the best at the lower elevations due to the fact that the road leads you through the forest and passes many great things to see along the route all the while covered by countess trees with beautiful color!

We also highly recommend Biltmore and Biltmore Gardens.  Take long walks on their nature trails or go horseback riding on a trail ride.  Biltmore is filled with great activities for all!  Currently the house and parts of the estate are already decorated for Christmas and therefore, makes it even more intriguing to most people!

horseback-ridingNo matter what you choose to do on your journey to Asheville and the Western North Carolina Region,  We are sure you will be happy and satisfied with your visit.  Some of the best air and nature can be found in our region.
