Biltmore Forest is possibly the most exclusive community in the Asheville area. It is not gated, but Biltmore Forest is actually its own township complete with its own administration, police, and public services. There are approximately 650 homes in the community, including many multi-million dollar homes. Biltmore Forest Country Club, a private club, is also in the community. Biltmore Forest also assesses property taxes (in addition to those assessed by Buncombe County).
