Just 6.9 miles to downtown Asheville, the Olivette agrihood is a 366-acre planned community featuring a riverfront park along the French Broad River. The heart of Olivette is a fully operational 4-season organic farm offering a CSA, farm stand, tailgate markets & other farm-centric activities. Connections to food, nature, community & the arts are essential concepts of our design. Residents enjoy access to miles of hiking trails, community gardens, orchards, a large private river island with pavilion & fireplace, fire circle amphitheater, suspended bridge to a private island, walking labyrinth, & dog park.
Community infrastructure includes fiberoptic cable, underground utilities, city water & sewer, and state-maintained roads.
Buyers can choose their builder, subject to architectural review guidelines (geothermal heating and cooling, a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) score of 55 or better required). We encourage other green building practices such as passive & active solar design.
