Neighbors find it easy to become a part of Cheshire’s vibrant community. Homes are all within walking distance of the Village Center, where shops, offices, a post office, restaurants and cafes offer a wide range of amenities and activities.  Apartment living spaces above the street-level retail suites give the Village Center a European feel with a modern flair.

Outdoor concerts at the amphitheater are a fun way to spend an evening, perhaps followed by a delicious meal at the Highland Grill & Oyster Bar.  Cheshire homes are elegant and one-of-a-kind, crafted of the finest materials with a careful attention to detail. Each unique home boasts sophisticated touches such as arts-and-crafts detailing, hardwood floors, ample front porches and handcrafted stone fireplaces.mg style="border-style: none; border-color: inherit; border-width: 0; float: right;" alt="The Village at Cheshire-Asheville Real Estate" src="images/cheshire6.jpg" width="144" height="124" class="style40" />
