East Asheville

East Asheville boasts a mix of rural properties and established neighborhoods. With easy access to recreation on the Blue Ridge Parkway, yet less than 10 minutes to Downtown Asheville, residents of East Asheville have the best of both worlds.

Key Features

Blue Ridge Parkway: East Asheville has easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, where many enjoy hiking on the Mountains to Sea Trail right off 74-A, cycling with the many local riding clubs, or visiting the Folk Art Center.

Haw Creek: Haw Creek is a coveted area in East Asheville with an active community association and well-maintained parks. It backs up to the Blue Ridge Parkway and is filled with outdoor recreation opportunities, yet is conveniently located only five minutes from one of Asheville's main centers of commerce, Tunnel Road, and only 10 minutes from Downtown Asheville.
