Five Reasons Arden is a Great Place to Live

Wellington Estates is located in Arden, NC. Our community gives people a great opportunity to own their own modular homes, while living in a family-friendly neighborhood. Our Arden location is convenient to all that Asheville has to offer.

We are proud of Arden and believe there are many more things great about it than just this list. However, in this article, we will discuss five key things that make Arden a great place to live.

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

It would take all day to count the number of hiking, mountain biking, and watersport opportunities located near Wellington Estates and Arden, NC. Scratching the surface of those opportunities include:

  • Bent Creek Mountain Biking Trails
  • Dupont State Forest Hiking and Mountain Biking Trails
  • Transylvania County Waterfalls: Sliding Rock, Turtle Back, Looking Glass, etc.
  • French Broad, Forks of Ivy, and Swannanoah Rivers
  • Mount Pisgah Trails
  • Appalachian Trail

The list of trails and water sources goes well beyond these. For more information on how you can own your own home in a high quality neighborhood, contact us. We would love to talk to you more about how you can make Arden your home.
