Montford -The MONTFORD NEIGBORHOOD in Asheville, North Carolina not only is  Historic and Happening…but it is SO walkable!

 

Montford, a neighborhood of about 300 acres, offers a diversity of architectural styles. A good number of the homes such as you see in the photo here, were constructed between 1890 and 1920. Montford, like its residents, is a place of complex overall character.

 

_________________

 As you walk make your way from street to street on the sidewalks, you may notice that a certain romance is in the air 

You may even " feel"  the artistic” influences.”  You may see residents of this sustainable community strolling down a tree-lined boulevard, possibly stopping to gaze at one of the majestic homes that never fail to catch your attention.  

And Yes! There are wondrous architectural details including those from such  trendsetters as Bruce Price, Bernard Maybeck, the prominent Arts and Crafts architect, and Frank Lloyd Wright.   The Arts and Crafts style made popular in Asheville by noted society architect, Richard Sharp Smith, supervising Architect to Biltmore House is well-represented here in Montford.

Here is a walkable community where neighborhood parks greet families, the coffee shoppe is close at hand, and so are friends and families.
