Tucked into the cool deep forests of Western North Carolina close to Asheville, six moss-covered chimneys rise from the earth as natural as any other element. They are all that remain of cottages built there in the 1930s; quarters created for affluent friends of Author Thomas Wolfe’s family. Discover what those friends loved about this land…refreshing mountain breezes, stunning long range views, fire-red and purple sunsets, clear spring waters, and lush mountain flora.

These chimneys will soon welcome homes again. Introducing Chimney Laurel on Elk Mountain, a gated residential community with 26 home sites. This is Asheville real estate redefined; a residential community built with respect for the land and its history. Marketed exclusively by Beverly Hanks.
