East Asheville Real Estate

East Asheville starts east of Beaucatcher Mountain, which is the eastern mountain backdrop to Downtown Asheville and gives way to Swannanoa and Black Mountain to the east. The highly-rated VA Medical Center is in East Asheville as is Asheville Mall and many surrounding retail stores such as City Mac, Best Buy and Whole Foods Market. From a housing perspective, East Asheville is has a solid mix of older homes and new homes in prospering (finally, after a long recession) beautiful subdivisions such as Sovereign Oaks. East Asheville is worth a close look for anyone looking for larger homesites within 10 minutes of Downtown.
