Asheville Riverfront and Creekfront Properties
There’s nothing more relaxing than the sound of a mountain stream! And there are tons of creeks, streams, and rivers throughout the Asheville area. Many mountain streams are actually called “freestone” streams, which is how our company got its name. These rivers change over time with high water events (flash floods) and have clear, cold waters, making them perfect for trout fishing.
There are also larger rivers in and around Asheville, including the French Broad River, the Pigeon River, and many others. In fact, the French Broad is believed to be one of the oldest rivers on the planet! These larger rivers are perfect for canoeing, tubing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding.
Many real estate buyers are attracted to real estate with a creek, stream, or river for recreational reasons as well as the beauty of these waters. Asheville riverfront property can be relatively flat along the banks of calmer, wider waters, or it can be steeper with small waterfalls on the property. There are always a handful of waterfall properties for sale in the Asheville area.
When shopping for riverfront and creekfront properties, it’s important to know if the property lies in the flood plain or the floodway. Most of our region’s smaller creeks do not flood, but once the creek becomes a river, it likely has a flood plain around it. This doesn’t mean the property isn’t buildable, but it’s worth additional research. If you’re considering Asheville real estate on a creek, stream, or river, we can help!
