I just spent a week in Arden visiting the land of my kinfolk. I'm toying with the idea of buying a small condo and retiring there some day. It's a completely different world than Los Angeles, still not sure if I could adjust but I don't want to grow old here ( I'm 42, still have some time!). Does anyone know what the west side of Asheville is like? There is a condo complex there, very resonable prices- -it's called Canterbury Heights. Anyone familiar with this...could be a dump for all I know
thanks in advance!

In general, West Asheville is a older neighborhood with older homes, smaller lots and lower property values. Not the greatest part of town, but then again not horrible.

Thanks, compared to Los Angeles the whole city looks nice. I did assume the property values are lower on the west side than the south by the prices on the condos...thank you!

Default North East or South

West Asheville has the majority of crime in Asheville you may find it cheaper than other areas but there is a reason. If still interested stop by the West Asheville police annex to find out the better sections of West Asheville.
