Nestled within the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains is Arden, North Carolina, a green paradise for home buyers and land lovers alike. With plenty of opportunities for both, Arden is full of quiet neighborhoods with impressive, estate style houses as well as smaller one or two story homes. Residents enjoy pristine views of the southern Appalachian hills, no matter where in Arden they are. The subdivisions in the small, up and coming community are sure to delight those who feel at home in the mountains.
Located just a few minutes drive from the bustling town of Asheville, Arden is ideal for those who are looking for an idyllic setting with all the convenience of a city. Just a few minutes south of Asheville in Buncombe County, Arden sits near the Henderson County line near Fletcher and Skyland. Residential areas and some commercial areas fill the town, while its close proximity to both Asheville and Hendersonville fill the needs that anyone in Arden might have. Only a few miles from the airport and just off the major interstate I-26, Arden is easy to get to and from.
Glen Arden Elementary School and one private religious school serve the small district, while many children choose to bus or drive to nearby towns where public, private, and charter schools of high quality are in abundance. Because the area has been voted in National Geographic’s ‘Top 100 Places to Live’ ranking, along with the lists of many other publications, residents of the region can expect the residential and tourist growth to continue. With the Great Smokey Mountains National Park and major sites like the Biltmore Estate so close by, the influx of visitors throughout all the seasons is not surprising. Arden remains small, with a population of just around 16,000, but should expect its popularity to be ever on the rise.
