Biltmore Forest Real Estate

    History

    Biltmore Forest is a town in Buncombe County, North Carolina and is part of the Asheville metropolitan area. The Town is located between the Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the City of Asheville and has a land area of 2.9 square miles.

    In the late 1920s, Mrs. Vanderbilt sold 1,600 acres to establish a luxurious suburb with spacious lots and modern amenities. This area became known as the Town of Biltmore Forest, a low-density, master-planned community that captures the characteristics of Biltmore Estate’s first architect and planner, Frederick Law Olmsted.

    The town of Biltmore Forest was then incorporated in 1923 and became a historic preservation district in 1990. Today, with its swan-necked streetlights and thickly wooded lots, Biltmore Forest is home to some of the largest estates and is one of the most desirable areas in which to live.
