As you all know I’m a big fan of ranch neighborhoods in Asheville. I was born in 1964 and spent my entire Indiana childhood growing up in them. For me they hold a sense of nostalgia, along with a sense of promise for creating simple and efficient living spaces which is what I’m naturally drawn to as an adult. When originally constructed, they offered opportunity for affordable and efficient living for many. Today, following the growth of oversized and multi-story homes, they offer a smart option for downsizing to one level living and a blank canvas for putting your own design style within great neighborhoods.
Realtor Carol Marin and I, along with Kelly Erin-Spinney, have spent hours and hours over the years scouring these neighborhoods seeing the opportunities and have helped several buyers create their dream home here in the Ranchhoods of Asheville. This spring we will be reporting on these neighborhoods each month given the uptick in this trend. In the meantime feel free to read through some of my past articles on this subject. Enjoy!
