Beaverdam Run Townhomes Guide
This 115-acre community offers some of the best year-round sunset and mountain views in Asheville. The community boasts tremendous amenities including tennis courts, an indoor pool, exercise room, clubhouse, garden space, and walking trails.
Building began on this site, according to an article in the Asheville Citizen, in 1985 through 1989 by Edward Newmark and his company, below Elk Mountain and running adjacent to the picturesque Beaverdam Creek. Because road and waterline costs exceeded his budget, a new developer, Gerald Candler, took over this contract. Interestingly enough, this article points out, the mountains themselves had to be bored together by steel rods driven through the granite, making this community extremely safe against landslides as a result.
Construction was completed in 2001, resulting in 136 exquisite attached townhomes ranging in sizes from 1,800 square feet to 4,456 square feet. The potential homeowner could choose either two to four-bedroom units with varying numbers of bathrooms.
These 136 homes rarely come on the market. Each is a little different, positioned on 115 wooded, rolling acres of gorgeous landscaping.
These townhomes sit in a quiet country setting with varying views, including an enchanting pond. There are five landscaped ponds on these grounds. A meticulously landscaped Japanese garden sits gracefully on these lands as well. Hiking and biking trails meander graciously throughout this parklike setting. The townhomes offer several features worth-mentioning that are provided, including stone fireplaces, open living, exquisite hardwood flooring, eat-in kitchens, and even separate, intimate dining rooms if so desired. All of them have expansive, open decks to entertain and take in the mesmerizing natural surroundings.
The amenities offered in this communal property are beyond compare. The community clubhouse offers a fully-equipped catering kitchen, party room, meeting space, and wrap-around patio. A fitness center includes a heated indoor pool to swim laps in and a sauna to sink in to relax and melt away any tension. The other community gathering spot is housed in a remodeled log cabin built in the 1700s, including a billiards room, three fireplaces, and a small well-stocked lending library. There are also well-maintained communal gardening spots, a gazebo, and a barbeque space.
There is a liberal pet policy and an enclosed dog park.
This is a gated community. Each townhome has an attached two-car garage. There are parking lots for both the clubhouse and log cabin.
This community offers an expansive array of activities on-site so, if you are so inclined, you do not have to venture into the city other than to shop for groceries or other needed supplies. There is a bridge club, a creativity club that offers a variety of exciting classes, and a hiking club, to mention a few.
There are art shows available within the Beaverdam Run community at their clubhouse. Within a 15 minute drive, there is also the eclectic art scene that Asheville offers. Asheville's iconic culture is unique in and of itself. According to Diana Stoll's article in August 2018 on burnaway.org, Southern Methodist University put Asheville on its list of "40 Most Vibrant Arts Communities in America."

The Log Cabin is a historic building with meeting and game rooms, a pool table, a small lending library, Wi-Fi access, and three fireplaces. The property is also home to a fenced-in area where dogs can run and play freely with their owners or other dogs. According to an article in the Asheville Citizen from May 16, 1937, the Log Cabin was built in the late 1700s and was the former residence of David Swain, three-time governor of North Carolina and many years President of the University of North Carolina, as well as his cousin General Joseph Lane, who later became the governor of Oregon.
The Japanese Garden: A Peaceful Haven
The Japanese garden is a stunning feature of the community, situated to the right of the property entrance. Visitors and residents alike are drawn to its beauty, with a meandering path that surrounds a pond and flowering plants that provide a colorful backdrop throughout the seasons. Strategically placed benches offer a peaceful vantage point to take in the abundant wildlife that can be found around the pond, making it an ideal spot for meditation or simply enjoying nature.
