Forbes names Asheville in the Top 15 Destinations for 2018

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.

Modern for Sale in Asheville, NC

Pano Ext

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.

In our Asheville History section we will bring you quick facts about certain areas of town, unique buildings, and other great historical information about our area.  Asheville, North Carolina has a rich history that relates to all aspects of life including art, architecture, culture, and more.

Asheville High School is located at 419 McDowell Street.  The building opened it’s doors on February 5, 1929 at a total cost of $1,362,601 and is built in the Italian Renaissance and Art Deco style.  Constructed by Palmer-Spivey Construction Co. of Charlotte, NC and designed by Douglas D. Ellington with pink granite, the building quickly became inhabited by students and teachers alike.  The structure is quite impressive even today and lends itself to the environment in which it was built.

Today the school still functions and is a great example of what the public school system can offer our future leaders! For more information about the school please click on their website at Asheville High School.

At Ciel,  we strive to bring a wealth of knowledge to people looking to come to Asheville or for those who already live here.  To view our homesites and homes contact Jason Cahill at  jason@ciel-property.com

Ciel: Social Responsibility at Enka High School

On  May 19, 2016 we had the pleasure of getting involved in the community by volunteering to be judges for Senior Projects at Enka High School in Candler, NC.  The high school is just outside of Asheville, NC.  The students and teachers were so welcoming to all of the volunteers and provided a beautiful snack buffet to nosh on whilst judging the Senior Projects.

Enka High School Logo

It was an amazing experience to re-enter a high school after so many years and to give back to the community by helping these young adults on their journey to University and Life.  The Senior Project is something that student’s in their last year at Enka High School must complete to graduate.  They are required to choose their own project topic, do community service based work, actively get involved with their project’s topic or program, write a Senior Project Paper and submit all of this in a format that is legible and follows guidelines given by their teachers.   Each student has a teacher advisor that helps them throughout the term to focus and advise along the way.

All the student’s that we had the opportunity to judge and grade were serious students who had great personalities.  A few examples of projects that we witnessed the presentations for are:  Women’s Self Defense,  Guitar Making, and Green Building Aspects in Architecture.  The student who chose Guitar Making, actually created his own electric guitar and played it for us during his presentation.

Ciel and AIBL Invest llcd  take pride in actively being involved in the community.  Our commitment to NC Green Built Homes and Integrity goes beyond just that of landscapes, nature, and energy efficiency and extends to the wellness and prosperity of our community.
