Hickory Nut Forest is so compelling that your second or vacationhome soon may become your year-round abode.
If you are seeking waterfalls, you have come to the right place. Last count, there were fifteen(15) on the forever wild land that adjoins Hickory Nut Forest-
Not to mention the vineyard, organic gardens, heirloom apple orchard.Oh My!
Points to keepin mind as we head out on this sunny day to look at this carefully developed community are: a) proximity to Asheville, ) the exterior and/or interior allure for a second or vacation home, and c) zoning/deed restrictions.
Asheville has what it takes in terms of investing in a Second and/or Vacation home: An alluring, eco-friendly, and welcoming setting, things to do and see, cultural amenities, and wonderful locally-grown and harvested organic food and some of the most interesting people you may ever meet.
Also... Hickory Nut Forest Eco-Community has what it takes as far as reasonable proximity to both Asheville and Hendersonville, NC.
Hickory Nut Forest Eco-Community is located within miles beyond Drovers Road Preserve , the subject of our third tour, and within about a 37-minute drive in to Asheville's entertainment offerings, medical facilities and the Biltmore Estate.
Even closer you will find lakes, waterfalls, hiking, fishing and an excellent CSA from which to gather organic produce.
As we traverse the community note that the philosophical foundation rests on maintaining a healthy, diverse ecosystem. Too, this is place where people can choose to live among caring neighbors, sharing their inspiration and enthusiasm.
Hickory Nut Forest is a sustainable community. The goal is to be more than simply "energy efficient"- the goal here is to be a "net zero energy" community that powers the homes by unleashing the renewable energy inherent in the land, the water, the wind and the sun. This is another benefit for those who live here-in both cost savings and independence.
More Features and Benefits: Outdoor Activities: Hiking trails wind up Little Bearwallow Mountain and down to beautiful waterfalls on Hickory Nut Creek. Another 5 miles of trails will connect to the Florence Preserve and eventually are planned to extend the length of the gorge to the new Hickory Nut Gorge State Park at Lake Lure. With over six miles of hiking trails, residents and visitors can enjoy the adjoining 800 acres in both Little Bearwallow Mountain and Florence Nature Preserves. Just down the gorge are another 3500 acres of waterfalls and cliffs at Chimney Rock State Park.
Being a part of a thoughtfully-planned neighborhood, where green-built homes are designed with natural, non-toxic materials to be safe, healthy, and energy efficient, built to the highest green building standards has enormous dividends.
Forever wild, protected land surrounds Hickory Nut Forest. Covenants on the lots ensure that homes will blend naturally into the forest and special wild places for all to enjoy: the cascading streams, tumbling waterfalls, sheer cliffs, and distant vistas.
Whether it is a WNC Healthy-Built ®Home or a LEED® Certified home. Second and Vacation home seekers can expect green excellence in this Asheville area community. In fact, only seventeen (17) homesites with more than half sold. Green-built homes are now under construction.
Seeking a natural lifestyle where mountain views, nature trails, and pristine streams invite you to relax and enjoy the quality of life? Ccome with me on my next tour of Hickory Nut Forest.
