Walkable Neighborhoods : Grove Park
GROVE PARK Walkable Neighborhood.
Asheville's Grove Park- Walkable Neighborhood surrounds the world-famous Grove Park Inn. The Inn, built by Edwin Grove opened in 1913. The area surrounding the Inn became known as the "Grove Park."
Many homes enjoy the "sustainability factor" in the Grove Park area. Wonderful updates and green retrofitting is on the rise. Here is a photo I took recently of such a project. My client was thrilled to see this type of activity going on in the Grove Park area.
Homes: Here you will find an interesting mix of historic and newer homes, tree-lined streets, incredible views of downtown Asheville and absolutely no commercial zoning (although there are several properties zoned institutional and two churches.)
Three areas in the neighborhood, Grove Park, Sunset Terrace, and Proximity Park are listed on the National Historical Register. If you are relocating to Asheville it is even possible to find rental properties here-from single family homes to larger apartment buildings.
Neighbors: This is a mature community. There area several second and/or vacation homes in this area, yet neighbors have a strong community voice.
