Longchamps Condo Guide
Constructed in the 1920s, Longchamps is a 6-story building that is within walking distance from the Grove Park Resort Inn and Spa and is also very close to Blue Ridge Parkway hikes. Many of the condominium units have preserved the original embellishments while others have been completely upgraded. The architecture combines Chateauesque and Tudoresque styles. Its back is built into the mountainside and offers generous views of Asheville’s verdant lush nature. As such, it's by no means easy to find one of these one-of-a-kind units in the market.
The mid-rise building has the following key features:
The building has 6 floors with a total of 17 units. The units feature living spaces spread across one level apart from the penthouse which occupy two levels. It has one-, two-, and three-bedroom units with floor space ranging from 170 square feet to 2,600 square feet. The unit prices range from $19,000 to $700,000.
Longchamps Apartments was constructed in 1925 under the oversight of Ronald Greene, numbered among the leading architects during Asheville’s architectural heyday of the 1910s and 1920s. He is best known as the designer of the mountain city’s first skyscraper, the Jackson Building.
This mid-rise complex combines Chateauesque and Tudoresque architectural styles to give rise to an elegant Normandy-style building. Its European, Old world style is spectacular to look at and even better to live in.
From the residential building, Grove Park Inn is a short 5-minute walk and provides quick and easy access to fine dining, world-class live entertainment, a Donald Ross-designed 18-hole golf course, a subterranean spa, and several unique boutiques.

In the Press
Great insights about the building, development, and history.
The neighborhood has a walk score of 30, meaning that it is car-dependent and most errands may require a car. It also has a bike score of 36 meaning that although it has minimal bike infrastructure it is still somewhat bikeable. However, since the neighborhood is not far from the city, the average commute to work is only 18 minutes.
Life here is relatively cheaper with the cost of living being as low as 17% below the national average. The building also has a homeowners’ association managed by Cedar Management Group that handles all matters of maintenance. This association handles sewer, water, garbage disposal, propane for the fireplaces, master insurance policy, exterior building, and landscaping maintenance. As a result, residents are expected to pay HOA fees monthly. The fee varies from $200 to $800 depending on the unit the resident occupies.
