Townhomes in Nine South are well built and typically include higher end finishes, such as granite counters, wood floors, and stained trim. There are units with 1-bay garages and units with 2-bay garages. Homes with entry level garages are located on the downhill side of Mandolin Drive, and walk-up units with basement-entry garages are on the uphill side of Mandolin Drive. These Black Mountain townhomes are ideal for second homes or retirement homes, as the exterior maintenance and landscaping are covered by the property owners’ association. The only road in the community, Mandolin Drive, is maintained by the Town of Black Mountain.
