Black Mountain is known as the front porch of the Mountains as it is the first town you come to when you reach the top of Old Fort mountain. Black Mountain is incorporated with its own mayor and all the other amenities that come with incorporation. Black Mountain real estate has a personality of it’s own with an array of Antique stores and locally owned restaurants in Downtown Black Mountain. The main road in Black Mountain leads to a small intimate town known as Montreat. When you go through the rock entrance of Montreat you feel as though you are going back in time. An abundance of rhododendrons align Montreat Road, and you get glimpses of the active creek running along side the road through the rhododendron. Black Mountain real estate has a sweet intimate community feel with one elementary school, one middle school and one high school – but don’t forget that you are within 20 minutes of all that Asheville has to offer. A great mix for your lifestyle!
