2 North Asheville
"Some of the oldest and most distinctive (and priciest) neighborhoods in Asheville are in the foothills of this northern part of town.
The Albemarle Park neighborhood off Charlotte Street was conceived at the turn of the century as a model of residential, landscape and architectural design. Development began in the 1890’s as the collaboration of three influential businessmen (most notably railroad exec William Green Raoul). Its centerpiece was the historic Manor Inn (now enjoying a current incarnation as apartments) and groupings of English-style cottages in park-like settings with expansive mountain vistas.
The Grove Park Inn, built in 1913 by St. Louis pharmaceutical magnate Edwin W. Grove is the landmark of the neighborhood known as Grove Park. Shortly after the architecturally iconic inn (a lodge built of enormous granite boulders and mammoth wooden beams, garnished with a whimsical red roof that looks like melted candle wax drippings) was completed, Tudor Revival style homes sprang up on the area’s woodsy streets. The neighborhood is pricey, but retains much of its original character.
The Beaverdam area at the northernmost edge of Asheville surrounds Beaver Lake, a bucolic area for walking, boating and fishing." (compliments of AshevilleNecomer.com) Click here for more info about Grove Park
