Asheville’s Walkable Neighborhoods:Lakeview Park 2012

 The Real Estate Neighborhood Review Journal of Asheville:
Lakeview Park

 

The sidewalks in Walkable Asheville's  Lakeview Park  run down to greet Beaver Lake. First created in 1920, Beaver Lake is man-made. It grew from the damming of Beaver Creek.  For me, this “private lake” shines like a diamond in the carolina blue sky, for, although it is “private”  the Lakeview Park walkable community welcomes Asheville residents and those relocating to Asheville to stroll, sit and enjoy ,canoe the lake, or jog aroung its perimeter.  And if ,any given day, during the winter, spring, summer or fall of the year,  you may see the young and the young-at-heart at play.

 

Upscale” Walkable Asheville NeighborhoodHistoric Home in Asheville Lakeview Park

 

 By 1922, an “upscale” housing development known as Lakeview Park that centered around Beaver Lake began to emerge. 

 

 It so pleases my real estate clients here in Asheville to say that what was first envisioned so many years ago today continues to delight visitors and residents alike.  

 

We walk  the Lakeview Park neighborhood  and down to Beaver Lake  almost every week.  

 

Lakeview Park 2012: We stroll the neighborhood, visit with our neighbors along the way and continue  to be amazed with the  views of the surrounding mountains, sweet picnic spots, colorful canoes gliding by and the much-prized sense that it evokes. . . “all’s right” ...

 

 

 

 

WALKABLE Neighborhood Lakeview ParkHomes: Here in Lakeview Park you will find an interesting mix of historic and newer homes, tree-lined streets, and lovely views of Asheville’s rolling hills …and, of course, Beaver Lake.

 
Neighbors:  This is a mature community. There area several second and/or vacation homes in this area, yet neighbors have a strong community voice.
Pet -Friendly: Yes      

 

Price Range 2012 in Lakeview Park : $300,000 to $900,000.  
Available Single Family Residences: 10  

 

SOLD in 2011: 7
AT or within 10% of Listed Asking Price

Looks really nice. Will have to look that section up next time we are in Asheville.  We have only visited Asheville once..just last year and loved the "Soho" feeling of downtown and beautiful rivers. First place we visited outside of New York that may have potential down the road..some nice neighborhoods north of city with 1/4 the taxes!

Congrats on the feature Mountain Mama. You really make so many aspects of Asheville welcoming and desirable. Beaver Lake looks like a beautiful spot to call home...and obviously, it's a highly desirable neighborhood. It's wonderful that they welcome outside strollers and paddlers.  I'm so happy that it's pet friendly too - :)

Have a wonderful day in the mountains janeAnne. D
