Many older homes have been fully renovated in these neighborhoods. There are some newer homes but they are generally built on smaller lots. The nicer neighborhoods that are walkable to downtown (DARN - Downtown Asheville Residential Neighbors) include Montford, Claxton, Chestnut Hills and Charlotte Street. All neighborhoods north of I-240 and east of 19-23/74 are desirable neighborhoods. Asheville natives know that this area is the place to be. Having vacationed yearly in the area since 1968 and taken up residence since 1996, I've gained lot of insight through traveling for work throughout WNC, talking to contractors and architects and discussing at length neighborhood attributes with locals and newly transplanted residents. I've given each desirable neighborhood a ranking according to what I've found. These do not include gated communities and take into great consideration the location to close by amenities.
