Laurel Ridge is a gated mountain community approximately 5 minutes north of Black Mountain, North Carolina. Laurel Ridge offers homeowners privacy, beautiful views, and an abundance of wildlife, without the curvy roads required to access some other similar neighborhoods.
The community is surrounded by over 17,000 acres of protected land in the Asheville Watershed, the Bee Tree Watershed, and Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy. Plenty of deer, bears, and turkeys call Laurel Ridge home.
Laurel Ridge residents enjoy paved roads, underground utilities, a community water system (with water supplied by the Asheville Watershed), a fire substation, and “The Lodge” meeting space above the fire station. The neighborhood is a mix of primary homes and vacation homes, several of which are available as short-term vacation rentals.
