Why Western North Carolina?

I have lived in Hendersonville, NC all my life. Meeting people that have relocated here from all over the world has taught me that Hendersonville, North Carolina is the best place to live! Many professionals who have lived abroad have told me that Hendersonville, by far, has been the place they love the most.

Charleston is only 3.5 hours away if you want to satisfy your need for sand and surf.  Boone, North Carolina is only 2 hours away for a great mountain ski getaway. The Biltmore House with it’s grand architecture, expansive lawns and lovely flower gardens draws hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

Asheville has been voted Beer City USA 3 years in a row due to it’s active craft brew culture. There are about a dozen breweries to choose from within a 30-45 minute drive.  Tours are available at most of them and the atmosphere is casual.  Hendersonville is proud to have it’s own Southern Appalachian Brewery which opened recently.

All of these surrounding areas are wonderful places to visit, but living in Hendersonville, is “Better every day in every way!” Many enjoy evening strolls down Main Street, meeting up with friends. There is fine, yet casual dining, art galleries and now the Flat Rock Playhouse has opened a venue right on Main Street.  We have a strong Chamber of Commerce sponsoring many annual events such as The NC Apple Festival, Garden Jubilee and Music on Main Street, just to name a few.

If you are an avid golfer, I don’t have to tell you that we have some excellent golf courses.  We boast the private award winning Tom Fazio course at Champion Hills, Hendersonville Country Club, and the Joe Lee designed course at Kenmure in Flat Rock.  Public golf courses include Cummings Cove, Etowah Valley, Highland Lake, and Crooked Creek.  Many more great courses are withing an hour drive.

If you can visualize yourself loving this area as much as I do, give me a call. I’d love to find your dream home here in the mountains.
