Asheville Neighborhoods Made up winding roads and hillsides, green homes, perfectly appointed homes, immaculately kept lawns, and, of course, the Grove Park Inn, this area of Asheville offers charming architecture and neighborhoods that beckon residents to be outside. East Asheville is the quintessential blend of peaceful seclusion weaved with urban convenience. With easy access to Tunnel Drive shopping corridor and the Blue Ridge Parkway, you can live where the views are beautiful without having to live out of the way. Living in the heart of Central Asheville gives you the unique combination of the vibrant entertainment hub of downtown, brimming with unique, locally owned shops, and many farm-to-table restaurants. What was once part of the Biltmore Estate and the surrounding village is what makes of the historic area of South Asheville. Here you can find European-influenced architecture with stone work, post-and-beam walls, and high pitched roofs. West Asheville is Asheville’s most eclectic and creative neighborhoods, where quaint bungalows intermingle with green-built homes that are within walking distance of the area’s developing business district along Haywood Road.
