Do you like the serenity of the higher elevation properties, but prefer a level/flat driveway? You can have both with this beautifully wooded lot that sits on an unusually flat part of the ridge. Located in the gated community of Laurel Ridge, this almost one acre lot has abundant natural light, and excellent 360 degree winter mountain views. Selective clearing will provide year round views. Access is off of the very gentle Oak Ridge Trail. An old logging road makes it easy to explore this lightly forested lot. Laurel Ridge is a privately owned cove adjacent to the protected 17,500 acre Asheville Watershed, with an emphasis on embracing nature's beauty. There are currently 87 homes of both full-time and part-time residents. From the gate it is less than 11 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and less than 30 minutes to Asheville. Feel the euphoria that comes with being on this relatively flat, unconfined, easy to build, naturally beautiful, lot at 3500' in elevation on top of the ridge.
