Black Mountain is a charming small town situated at the head of the Swannanoa Valley, with an easy 20 minute drive to Asheville along I-40. Still within Buncombe County, Black Mountain NC offers a wide range of real estate options, including in-town bungalows, planned communities, green homes, condos and townhouses, homes with privacy and views, building lots, land and acreage, and commercial real estate. From town and the Swannanoa River Valley, breathtaking views of Seven Sisters Peaks, Greybeard Mountain, and the Swannanoa Range dominate the landscape.
Black Mountain has a tight-knit community of locals and the area offers an abundance of things to see and to do.

Lake Tomahawk is located within the community, with magnificent views for the professional or weekend photographer.
