Among the contours of the Blue Ridge Mountains and beside the valleys of the two states’ many rivers, you’ll find the diverse, idyllic settings that attract so many to live and prosper in the Carolinas. A temperate climate and a multitude of local entertainment allow residents to enjoy a well- balanced indoor-outdoor lifestyle, year-round. From the many artistic and cultural outlets to hiking, biking and water sports, North Carolina and South Carolina have so much to offer.
At the western edge of the state is Asheville, North Carolina’s Crown Jewel, according to Evelyn Zebro of Beverly-Hanks & Associates REALTORS® Downtown Asheville. “Numerous fun and cutting-edge restaurants, music venues and artists, plus their own Symphony and newly redone Art Museum, make this town a sought-after destination for fulltime and second-home living,” says Zebro.
Ann Skoglund of Beverly-Hanks & Associates REALTORS® Biltmore Park agrees that the arts thrive in Asheville, adding mention of the River Arts District devoted to studios and galleries and performing arts highlighted by many theaters. Skoglund expands, “Dining is an exciting experience with many James Beard-nominated chefs. Microbreweries abound, offering live entertainment and interesting food. Mission Health Care System has been named one of the Top 15 in our nation.”
All of this brings a great sense of community to Asheville and western North Carolina, says Brent D. Russell of Beverly-Hanks, REALTORS® Downtown Asheville. “It is an inclusive community with so many diverse people enjoying the lifestyle, culture and the beauty of the mountains. Asheville is the home where you want to be, so you can thrive and really enjoy the life you deserve,” says Russell.
Just south, Billy Harris of Beverly-Hanks, REALTORS® Brevard, South says, “Brevard is located in ‘The Land of Waterfalls’ and is the quintessential small mountain town.” Harris adds, “We are lucky enough to have the world-famous Brevard Music Center, Brevard College and more than 53 percent of the county is state or national forest.”
South Carolina shares much of the beauty and ambiance of its northern counterpart, home to soaring peaks, lush valleys, a gorgeous coast and southern hospitality. If a Carolina lifestyle is one you desire, find your next dream home among the North Carolina and South Carolina estates to follow.
