Hendersonville, NC – April 16, 2021 – As the masses are looking to escape cities and head for the mountains, high-end communities like The Boulders in the mountains of Western North Carolina have become the go-to place to relocate. With the severe lack of inventory in the area, buyers are hungry for new construction in a community that offers quality and convenience. Gorgeous high-end homes have been built by residents throughout the gated mountain community, with five more custom homes under construction and at least three more on the drawing boards.
As the real estate market is soaring and buyers are coming off the sidelines and heading to the mountains of Asheville & Hendersonville NC, now is the perfect time to purchase a lot, even if building is in the future. With nearly 70 percent of the lots sold from its first four phases, the most dramatic homesites were saved for last – The Estates. Rising in elevation with views to the west, south and/or east, each of the 11 lots are unique. Two have already been scooped up prior to officially marketing these one-of-a-kind homesites. Estate lots start in the mid $200,000s, while 14 lots of beautiful mountain, partial and wooded lots priced from $69,9000 to $189,900 are also available.
The North Carolina mountains are a draw for those looking for nature, adventure, four mild seasons and access to art, culture, dining and mountain view lots to build their dream home. Hendersonville & Asheville rank high up on ‘where to visit, live and retire’ lists. But finding the right location is a consideration – how to balance living in the mountains without being remote and having quick access to medical, culture art and dining. While mountain communities with glorious views and nature’s serenity are typically ‘off the beaten path’ and synonymous with long, winding commutes up mountain roads, The Boulders is a rarity – gorgeous views and convenient location. Situated on the north end of Hendersonville and the southern end of Asheville, in just 6 minutes you’re on Hendersonville’s Main Street, the Asheville airport is 10 minutes away and in 25 minutes you’re in downtown Asheville.
When building in the mountains where slope and vistas come into play, the most effective approach is securing a lot first and then designing a house that fits the land and how you want to live. Once a you find the perfect homesite, design a home that considers the terrain, exposure and view. Read what to consider when buying land in the mountains. At The Boulders, there is no required time to build which offers freedom and flexibility to do when you’re ready.
The challenge for many relocating to the region is the lack of inventory and new construction. To build their dream home, buyers can select a homesite and use their own builder and house plan. Many of the area’s top builders have built luxury custom homes for residents, such as Osada Construction, Living Stone and Buchanan Construction.
For a simpler approach, opt for The Boulders semi-custom Cottage Collection – mountain inspired homes with open floor plans that embrace outdoor living and maximize views. Exterior elevations are designed so no two homes look the same, and interiors can be customized. The Boulders is a welcome departure to the cookie cutter community, where homesites with gorgeous panoramic views and nature provide the backdrop for a lifestyle and luxury mountain home that embodies individuality and style.
Whether a primary or second home, its location close to medical and shopping makes it perfect for boomers and retirees looking for a locale to stage their ‘second act.’ For families, top rated schools and close proximity to parks, recreation and amenities make it ideal. As a second home, the close proximity to Charlotte, Atlanta, Charleston and other drive markets, and one exit from the Asheville Airport makes The Boulders a great mountain getaway.
With elevations soaring to 2,750 feet, the master planned community embodies nature with 25% of the land preserved in green space. Architectural guidelines reflect the community’s design aesthetics from arts and crafts to traditional, timber frame and mountain contemporary. The community has city water, electric, natural gas and fiber optic cable.
