When I think of classic Asheville neighborhoods, Beverly Hills is certainly one that comes to mind. Nestled around the Municipal Golf Course in east Asheville, the winding roads and beautiful greenery of this community give it a special character, as do the many architecturally diverse homes built from the 1920’s to the present. The majority of Beverly Hills homes are either two bedroom and one bath cottages or 3 bedroom and 2 bath ranch style homes, consistent with the two building booms.Walking, driving or biking the neighborhood you will see many mid- century ranch homes as well as charming rock cottages and bungalows from the 1920’s and 1930’s.
Beverly Hills is close to everything. Grocery shopping, restaurants, public library, tons of shopping around Tunnel Road AND in less than 10 minutes you can be in Biltmore Village or downtown Asheville. For recreation the Nature Center is directly across Swannanoa River Road from Beverly Hills and the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway is close by on Highway 70. The Municipal Golf Course, designed by Donald Ross, with its greenways meandering through Beverly Hills is an Asheville landmark all its own and Ann Patton Joyce Park is a public park in the heart of the neighborhood.
Beverly Hills Home Owner’s Association is an active although volunteer organization meeting monthly and organizing a community picnic as well as a large, well-attended community yard sale each spring. The Yard of the Month Committee recognizes outstanding Beverly Hills gardens in the spring and summer months.
Beverly Hills certainly isn’t a cookie cutter neighborhood, there’s a lot of variety to be found in the homes, their sizes and conditions, hence the wide range of recent sale prices. In the past six months there have been nine sales in the neighborhood with sale prices ranging from $169,000-$362,500. Four houses are currently on the market priced from $285,000 to $445,000 and two under contract, listed at $237,000 and $359,000. At this time the median price range is $259,000 with average price per square foot at $160.00. Average days on the market is 30 days.
