Leicester

Leicester, a smaller town just northwest of Asheville, was once a predominantly farming community named Turkey Creek. In the mid 1800's, Turkey Creek became Leicester after a man named Leicester Chapman pioneered a mercantile business in the area, and proposed the name change. Nowadays, Leicester is slowly being developed as the area surrounding Asheville is becoming more popular. You will find most land in Leicester is devoted to residential homes with larger acreage, but along main drags, you will find grocery stores, gyms, local businesses, and more. 


Although Leicester has quick access to the amenities of West Asheville's hip downtown and Downtown Asheville's bustling city center, it remains relatively cheaper on average than Asheville homes.  Residents here pay less in property taxes, and can purchase a home for about 80% of the price of comparable Asheville homes. Styles range wildly, from more traditional brick ranchers to country bungalows with rustic charm, however there are some new construction communities available as well. 




The Leicester community mainly centers around New Leicester Highway, which is most commercial and populous where it connects with Patton Avenue, and becomes more rural as you head north. This main thoroughfare distantly connects to Hot Springs, NC and the many hikes and camping areas surrounding the popular Max Patch mountain bald. Some highlights in this area include the quirky yet delicious breakfast menu at Sawhorse, sipping NC wine at the Addison Farms Vineyard, or witnessing the majesty of local bison at the Carolina Bison Farm. Mission Hospital lies just a 15 minute drive away, and the Asheville Regional Airport can be reached in just about 20 minutes from south Leicester. 


If you're looking for that rural lifestyle with urban amenities in reach, this area is a great option for you!
