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.

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.

Top 5 What to Look for when buying land in Asheville?

As with any thing in life, most things become complicated. Buying land in Asheville doesn’t have to be. Basically, you need to take a few things into consideration before buying your new homesite. These are important things to consider as they will remain permanent throughout the life of the land and the home you build on it. If you are looking for land that will hold its value for generations to come, the following top 5 considerations should be ruthlessly adhered to:

1 Location! Location! Location! Real Estate doesn’t move and therefore, where you buy isn’t going to change. Love the location you choose by taking into consideration it’s proximity to your needs, wants, and conveniences with in the surrounding area.

2 Know the costs involved! This means exactly what it says. Before buying a lot, make sure you know the costs of the upcoming build. Depending on the slope of the land, especially in the mountains, the foundation can be one of the most biggest budgeting necessities. Remember this when shopping for land. Usually, you will not find views from a flat lot.

3 Zoning, Covenants and Ordinances! These are three basic rules when buying anything. Zoning is what the city/state/municipality protects from being build in/or around the area. Covenants state what can be done within you or your neighbors yards, how many structures they can build, what type of structure can they build? Ordinances also control many things that are or are not allowed in your community or part of town.

4 Road Access! Who owns the road? How is the road maintained? This is essential to know because if the road isn’t maintained by city/county/state, you and your neighbors will be picking up the tab!

5 Love the land. Fall in love with the views and the surrounding area. Make this part of your purchase based on your emotion. Remember, where you choose to buy, the deed and that particular land will never relocate. In the end, Live where love.
