The grandeur of the Biltmore Estate made Asheville appealing to the wealthy drawing the rich and famous in the 1920s. As a result a number of residential subdivisions emerged that remain as some of the older more established neighborhoods in Asheville.
In the late 1920s, Mrs. Vanderbilt sold 1,600 acres to establish as a luxurious suburb with spacious lots and modern amenties. This area became known as the Town of Biltmore Forest, a low-density, master-planned, community that captures the characteristics of Biltmore Estate’s first architect and planner, Frederick Law Olmsted.
Biltmore Forest is one of south Asheville’s oldest and finest golf course communities featuring a Donald Ross designed 18 hole golf course and of course the prestigious Biltmore Forest Country Club.
With swan-necked streetlights and thickly wooded lots, Biltmore Forest is one of the wealthiest towns in the country. Biltmore Forest is home to some of the largest estates and is one of the most desirable areas to live. Biltmore Forest Real Estate ranges on average between $500,000 to $6,000,000.
