Located just 25 miles from downtown Asheville, French Broad Crossing is the area’s only private riverfront mountain community. Recipient of the 2008 Award for “Best Waterfront Living” from Mountain Homes Magazine, French Broad Crossing offers the perfect mix of mountain magic and river fun.
Residents can indulge in the community’s diverse and luxurious amenities, including a River Lodge and Fitness Center with its spectacular pool and hot tub amid panoramic mountain views; the River Park and Pavilion, a relaxing spot by the river’s edge for picnicking and recreation; and the Tree House, with its inviting outdoor fireplace and magnificent mountain vistas. French Broad Crossing was created by The Preserve Communities, an Asheville based mountain real estate developer that recently won Mountain Homes Magazine’s “Best Family of Mountain Communities” award in 2009.
Step inside this private gated community and be transported to a place where sun-dappled meadows turn to rolling hills; tree-lined trails meet the water’s edge and awe-inspiring mountain views dazzle at every turn. Just 165 mountain homesites rest on a sprawling, picturesque 790 acres, with 40% of the property set aside for conservation. Surrounding the community are hundreds of acres that are legally protected, ensuring the future of this scenic land.
