As the year draws to a close, we are reminiscing about our neighborhood and how proud we are to be a part of it. Located in Arden, just south of Asheville, Wellington Estates is a great place to live and raise a family.

With numerous neighborhood amenities, and close proximity to all of the great food, culture, and the natural wonders Asheville offers, we have compiled this quick list of four reasons you should consider living in Wellington Estates.


1) Wellington Estates Offers Affordable Homeownership

Wellington is a neighborhood of families who own manufactured homes. Owning your own manufactured or modular home in our neighborhood has many advantages over renting, including:

  • Land is Included: While you own your home, Wellington owns your lot, so you will not have to look for land.
  • Affordable Homeownership: Homeownership builds equity and credit, and you do not have to ask anyone whether you can hang photos or paint the wall (provided you abide by standard HOA-style rules).
  • No Noisy Neighbors: Unlike an apartment or duplex, you will not be sharing walls or ceilings with noisy neighbors.
  • Community: Our neighborhood is a community of people who care for one another.
  • Manageable Yards: You do not have to worry about maintaining many acres of land.

Asheville and surrounding communities are growing as fast as ever. New businesses, residents, and jobs are moving to Buncombe and Henderson counties ever month. It is a great time to own a home in our area.  

2) Wellington Estates Offers Excellent Neighborhood Amenities
