SouthSide Village, a snug hillside retreat south of Asheville, welcomes residents and guests alike as they enter through a securely gated entrance. Long- and short-range views and natural forestation, interlaced with thoughtfully planned landscaping, create inviting vistas. A private road winds up the side of Brown Mountain, the setting for 37 duplex townhomes, a vibrant neighborhood with just 74 residential units. Soaring ceilings and open decks contribute to a feeling and reality of spaciousness in these 1250-4200 sq. ft. open floor plan homes.
Savor the seasons here. This compact, walkable site offers a congenial setting for neighborly chats or cardiac workouts. Stunning views change with the seasons. Cul-de-sac after-hours social gatherings bring residents together in safe, friendly settings. The surrounding area teems with hiking and biking trails for all abilities. Those opportunities, in addition to the many nearby gyms, pools and sporting facilities, keep our residents active, busy and happy without need for our own dedicated community center or pool.
Just four miles south of I-40, near I-26 and the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, SouthSide Village provides easy access to a broad variety of conveniences and other delights, from retail and grocery shopping, professional and medical facilities, casual and fine dining, to recreational activities and medical facilities, many less than 10 miles from the heart of Asheville.
Many of our residents find delights enough right in this area to stay year-round; several divide their time between SouthSide Village and residences elsewhere.
