Southcliff

10 Southcliff Parkway, Fairview, North Carolina
Hiking Hiking
Mountain Mountain

Located less than 10 minutes from one of America's best college towns, Southcliff is one of the rare North Carolina gated communities with long range mountain views close to the city. Six miles of groomed hiking trails lead to the community parks and well designed outdoor living rooms. Spread across 400 acres, almost 50% of the community's acreage preserved as protected green space. Buyer's searching for the best neighborhoods in Asheville NC who enjoy the great outdoors will appreciate the five community parks within the neighborhood with amenities such as a rustic treehouse, children's playgrounds, scenic overlooks, open-air pavilions and firepits. The park names are Southcliff Park, Twin Creeks Park, Laurel Haven Park, Peregrines Ridge Park and Cliff Tops Park. For a mountain community of its size, we're impressed with the attention to detail they've put into their parks accented by outdoor rustic furniture, stonework and trailheads. The community caters to young families and those seeking Asheville retirement.

A lust for greed has soured the majority, and created dissent amongst the residents. Our only remaining options are for our voices to be heard in this venue, and/or move - and not necessarily in that order.

I used to feel this community was the happiest place to live but now would move tomorrow if I could. The developer won't be happy until he has run out the majority of residents who chose to live in Southcliff for its tranquility, well maintained hiking trails and beautiful trees. "Nature at your doorstep" not so much. Instead of birds chirping we mostly hear heavy machinery clear cutting our trees. It doesn't matter what we say, we have no opinion anymore; money speaks louder than words. Southcliff was unique in so many ways but our developer has no appreciation of nature or the residents. He is forcing amenities on us we do not want. We had everything we wanted until he came here. Sad day in Southcliff and only more of this to come.

Fantastic neighbors, mountain living and easy close proximity to downtown Asheville. Unfortunately the investment company representative who has voting power is in over his head amongst the higher end residents and has soured forever any working relationships....a real travesty!!!

It would be the absolute best community if the developer's representative was anyone other than the current rep. He makes money for the developers, yes, but he has no respect for existing property owners if they go against his own personal agenda. He has a private little fief that he loves exerting control in. The rep uses his veto power against the majority vote, even if that majority vote is trying to protect specific home-owners from having a visual blight capriciously placed in front of their properties. The majority vote was in favor of protecting these homeowners, but The Rep used his veto power as he always does. "Voting" here is just a sham. Bad policy. The rep, acting for the developer, changes the outcome to whatever he wanted in the first place. And now, because the majority have clearly sent a message, he has announced "no more voting on issues". What's the difference whether we vote and he changes the outcome, or we aren’t allowed to vote on issues which directly affect us? "Nature at your doorstep" not so much, if this representative has other plans. A vista of forest, out your front door, is easily erased at his whim.
