Riverbend Forest is a new exclusive neighborhood of 23 residential homesites at least ½ acre and placed along the ridge, so the main level of each house is easily accessed from the garage with the option of a daylight lower level, upper level, or both. Homesites have a mid-range view and long-range view toward the Craggy Mountains and tranquil sound of the Swannanoa River. Homesites are expected to be available in late Spring/early Summer 2019. Homesite prices begin at $145,000. Lot/Home packages begin in the $600’s. We are often asked about the intended architectural style of homes. The Mountain Vernacular style is appropriate along with modern adaptations.
There are over seven acres along the river and making it one of the most spectacular aspects of the project. Such land requires thoughtful and responsible planning as a community amenity with consideration given to providing exclusive use and security to residents. A rustic wood timber pavilion with a fireplace that can be seasonally enclosed for year-round enjoyment seems an appropriate centerpiece for the walking trails, picnic areas, and play lawns along this beautiful section of river.
We have received approval from the City of Asheville Water Department and the Metropolitan Sewer District to provide municipal water and sewer to each residential homesite. In early December 2018, we will file our plans with Buncombe County for approval as a “cluster development”. Such an approval will allow the placement of homes along the ridge at the road and keep the downhill slopes in a forested conservation easement. The conservation easement allows residents to enjoy a large homesite but with the protection and certainty the outer edge of the community will remain forested, preserving the overall beauty of the land yet allowing for recreational use.
We continue to be thankful for the warm response to Riverbend Forest and thrilled to have a growing list of prospective buyers. If you have interest in being added to our reservation list, please send see the click the "Send Us an Email" below.
