I love its walkable, tree-lined streets, the gardens present almost everywhere, it seems and the mix of 1920s bungalows and new Green-Built homes. It is not surprising that over forty artists live in the four square mile neighborhood just five minutes from downtown Asheville.
Kenilworth displays rolling hills and ravines and lots of old trees sure to inspire creative expression. And the “HUGE” park and playground kept me taking photos of happy visitors for a long time.
