Return To A Simpler Time In Asheville, NC

Dec 14, 2007
Cascading mountains with views over the treetops. A history steeped in the inspiration of great literature and an ongoing vibrant arts community as well as the theater. Botanical gardens and an Arboretum. A calm, relaxed mountain forest and the chance to go whitewater rafting. Each of these items, on it's own can be something that draws people to a community. All of the things mentioned, when combined together, are something that draws people who are looking for a unique residence a place to call home - the Versant community near Asheville, North Carolina.

Versant, as a community, offers residents the chance to find the right lot on which to build their home. With interior greenways as well as panoramic views of both the mountains and the neighboring Asheville, Versant offers a community unlike most others - a community that's centered around an appreciation of nature as well as on bringing families together to enjoy everything that's available to them.

Of course, because Versant is a gated community, families are likely to find that they are able to spend time apart as well; like neighborhoods that many of us remember from a time that seems long passed, Versant is a community where it is still safe for your children to go out with their friends, to ride their bikes, to spend time playing outside, even to go to the swimming pool on their own.

However, that doesn't mean that all there is to Versant is a safe place for families to live; the area is committed to preserving the natural environment as well. Animal species are still roaming in the undeveloped areas. There are still streams and small waterfalls where you can stop and reflect on all of nature's beauty. Listening to brooks as they run through the trees, hiking, biking and walking along trails, taking in the sights: all of these things enable Versant residents to be taken back to a time when there were fewer things that they needed to worry about, a time when they were better able to get out, to play and to explore.

Maybe that is why Versant attracts attention from those who are tired of living amongst the urban chaos. Maybe it is a part of why many who choose to call Versant their community and their home are as likely as they are to express themselves creatively - through painting, through ceramics and through photography. Maybe it's why families in the Versant community come together to explore the world around them.

That doesn't mean that Versant residents are forced to compromise. It doesn't mean that there aren't cultural experiences, coffee shops, great restaurants and fresh baked goods. It also doesn't mean that "city life" isn't just a short drive away; activities in Asheville are easy to reach, and concierge services provided within the Versant community make obtaining tickets to those events extremely simple.

Spending time with your family is essential, but it's something that often is unattainable within our society. If you're looking for a way of spending more time with your family, and you're looking for a lifestyle that will help you reclaim a simpler time in your life, look no further than the community at Versant.
