Asheville Area Neighborhoods: Fairview Forest and the Asheville NC -Fairview Community
Asheville NC's neighboring FairviewCommunity boasts a sumptuous mix of desirable homes and land. Take, for example, theprivate community of FAIRVIEW FOREST. It enjoys approximately 700-800 acres, almost a hundred homes, and nearly ten miles of roads. Such are the dreams of golfers, retired executives, and investors in second and vacation homes. Here a diverse group ranging from young families to retirees which includes writers, artists, consultants, service providers, and administrators enjoy a sustainable, eco-friendly community.
Ask me why I loveI love the Fairview NC area and Fairview Forest. I love it because homes are sited to takea dvantage of views and passive solar opportunities. I love it because the Green Space situates itself to maximize the sense of place and community. I also love it because it may become an intriguing investment opportunity and a boon to my clients who own a second/vacation home there.
Tiger Woods' Golf Course Adjoins Fairview Forest
1. What impact will the new golf course community have on the immediate area?
2. Will the new community, and "upscale development" take into account
the principles of sustainable design and development as Fairview Forest has?
3. Will there be damage of consequence to theenvironment and the view-sheds
that make Asheville and surrounding areas do desirable?
4. Will the developers use eco-wise site practices?
5. Are trend-watchers predicting home and land appreciation in adjacent neighborhoods?
To answer those questions, community members attended a review of the new golf course development at a Buncombe County Planning Board meeting in downtown Asheville. Of course, volunteers on the Green Space Committee who look after the hiking trails and areas of the green space in FairviewForest were plugged in to that meeting. ...More about the outcomes and the the 2010 opening of High Cliffs Carolina.
In the meantime, what if you saw the investment opportunities and were looking for a well-priced second/vacation home in Fairview? If you were, I happily would introduce you to Head Football Coach Bill" ("most winning coach -EVER" and about to receive a lifetime achievement award from the university at which he taught for many years) and his talented wife, "Sue". The couple invested in a second/vacation home in Fairview Forest and found they loved Asheville so much that they decided to make it their permanent home. I asked the couple about their mountain "digs" when I listed the property this week.
"People tell us the home has the feeling of a sanctuary-camp with plenty of room for entertaining family and friends to visit. And also plenty of room to get away," they laughed.
Bill, whose trophies decorate the ground floor offices and additional guest spaces, loves the outbuilding with electricity for his wood-working projects. Sue, with her skill for interior design, has just put a fresh coat of "neutral tone" paint on the walls, and new carpeting in the bedrooms. The fireplace is glowing. The hardwoods are shining. The smell of apple pie baking fills the open, eat-in-kitchen, and the wrap-around decks sparkle in the sunlight.
How can y'all leave this gem filled with such welcoming ambiance?" I ask.
"Although we sure are going to miss this place, wea reready to settle down on a little more Land," they tell me.
"It has given us privacy, the mountain views we wanted, time to consider, and a wonderful place for our pets- and visitors. We've enjoyed life on the mountain and this community. And knowing that Tiger Woods has decided to design his first American golf course right next door, we are excited about the investment prospects for the Fairview Community and Fairview Forest.
"Tell me a little bit about Fairview Forest,"I ask in hopes of better understanding the
special nature of this community they obviously love.

About Fairview Forest
According to HOA information, "Fairview Forest is made up of a private-sort of folks who are informal, want their privacy and who are friendly and available in time of need. It is not a close-knit community as you might find in the typical suburban development of formal streets, manicured lawns, and country-club type setting. The residents are a diverse group ranging from young families to retirees which includes writers, artists, consultants, service providers, and administrators."
Bill tells me, "Of course, stories about Tiger Woods' Western North Carolina endeavor have played form Ashevilleto new York, to England and Australia. Look at this articlein the Mountain Express."
Stories"... shine a bright spotlight on our town. .. It's bound to generate some interest when the best golfer in the world says the decision to design his first U.S. course here was ‘a no-brainer'... [According to Tiger] ... ‘You just have to experience the property... Even an idiot can't mess this up.' In addition, if anything will, a Tiger Woods-designed course should seal the region's reputation as a Mecca for Golfers. Besides Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Kite and Phil Mickelsonare all involved in designing courses in WNC. "
Now, as I sit with my clients, I am thinking ....WOW! Put this all in the context of Bill and Sue's 3 bedroom two-and-a half bath "gem" and you can see nothing but pure potential! Thoughtfully sited on 2.78 acres, it takes advantage of huge shade trees, and affords that exact mixture of privacy and mountain views that attract very smart people!"
Who could ask for anything more? How about.... a FairviewCommunity Energy Smart Home on Land and Stream or a Second/Vacation Home with a "Social" Kitchen??
