Relocating to Asheville area from NH - seek advice
We will be relocating to the Asheville area from New Hampshire early this summer and are looking for advice on an area to settle. Were down there for a long weekend and traveled from Hendersonville (nice downtown area) to Brevard to Weaversville -- but it's hard to get a sense of community in such a short time. Here is what we are looking for and hopefully someone can recommend an area.
We are in our 50's, kids grown, love nature and gardening, need to work. Home price has to be under 175k. Want to be maximum 25 minute drive to downtown Asheville. Currently live in a quintessential New England village with a strong sense of community that has a population of approx 2,000. Like older homes (100 years +) and established areas. Newer is o.k. if well built but don't want a cookie-cutter subdivision. Want to be about 5 minutes to good grocery shopping and not too far from a hospital. Can fix something up or build our own if we find the appropriate lot.
Hoping some local natives or other New England transplants can recommend an area to focus on. Thank you in advance.
