With deep roots in Asheville’s history, the Norwood Park Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2008. The neighborhood was originally founded in 1914, according to the City of Asheville, and it was intended to provide housing for middle-class workers with easy access to the streetcar line. Today, the residents of Norwood Park regularly come together for community events and value the friendly spirit of the neighborhood.
The homes for sale in Norwood Park were typically built in the early 1910s and 1920s, making many of them over a century old. The architectural style that defines much of Asheville’s historic real estate – Arts & Crafts – is prevalent in this neighborhood. You’ll find bungalows throughout Norwood Park have been kept in great shape, repaired and renovated as needed, but with original details that have been preserved (such as brick fireplaces and hardwood floors). Each home has its own character, and the neighborhood is charming in itself, thanks to its walkable, tree-lined streets. The Norwood Park Neighborhood Association exists to organize events, address resident issues, create a welcoming environment and maintain the neighborhood’s historic status.
For all of these reasons, Norwood Park is a highly desirable place to live – and another reason is its location.
