Description

A once in a lifetime opportunity exists to be a part of generations of American history. The land surrounding 2 Arboretum Road has been in the Vanderbilt family since the 1890’s when George W Vanderbilt chose Western North Carolina as the treasured location for his home, Biltmore House. George Henry Vanderbilt Cecil, grandson of George Vanderbilt, and his wife, Nancy Owen Cecil, built 2 Arboretum as their family home. They lived here in this quiet enclave for over 35 years. The rock bridges along Arboretum Road were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The property surrounding the house is the last undeveloped residential acreage owned by Biltmore Farms that will ever be available for purchase within the Town of Biltmore Forest. The Town was incorporated in 1923 and has its own police department, zoning and public works. Biltmore Forest is bordered by the Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the City of Asheville.

    "A lot of dogs but not many dog friendly places to live. Expensive and very touristy. Lots of dog friendly restaurants though. Would be nice if there was more green space especially in apartment complex’s. If places do allow dogs they usually require a non refundable deposit and an extra pet fee per month. "

    "We live in candler/Enka just off 140. We don’t know anyone around us because we are in a back road and lotsa space between us. Love our view of Pisgah. We do not love how our seemingly country area has so much speeding traffic. It’s parole who use the road to get to theirs. So many. It’s loud."

Affordable housing is a joke. We raised 3 sons here. I sold our home and now rent an apartment. I have to watch every penny in order to survive in Asheville as apartment rentals are outrageous, even the Affordable Housings Apts. are laughable at their costs."
