1) Arden Has Excellent Weather
People may not immediately associate western North Carolina with great weather, but those people might not be looking at the big picture. South of Asheville, we do experience extreme cold during the winter, but it is not nearly as brutal as the higher elevations around the city.
We see snow most winters, but rarely more than once or twice. Nevertheless, our summers are cooler than the lower elevations east and south of us. For eight or nine months of the year, you can drive with your windows down and air conditioning off.
2) Arden is Close to the Heart of Asheville
Wellington Estates and Arden are close to downtown Asheville and the restaurants and culture that have made our community a destination for tourists and new residents. Tupelo Honey and Farm Burger are less than twenty minutes away, while Sierra Nevada is just south of us in Mills River.
3) Arden Has its Own Food and Shopping
Arden itself has an identity with its own great food and shopping. The Beehive Coffee Bar is a few minutes away from Wellington, while the airport and Biltmore Park areas are equally nearby. There is a lot of art and culture burgeoning in our town as Asheville expands.
4) Arden is Close to Lake Julian
Lake Jillian and TC Roberson High School are conveniently only a few minutes from Wellington Estates. With all the nature and beauty around the Arden area, Lake Julian offers an opportunity to get away from it all, while still being right in the heart of the city.
5) Arden is Convenient to Numerous Hiking, Biking, and Watersport Opportunities
