Mountain style is the predominant architectural theme of homes throughout the community, done tastefully and with attention to detail.

About Our Homes

Each home is distinct yet blends in with the overall design of the community and its natural environment.  The Settings’ Design Review Board works closely with owners and their builders to ensure that new construction meets the guidelines of the community, while enabling owners to build the home of their dreams.

Many homes have scenic mountain views while others enjoy being nestled in our mature pine, maple and oak forests with large groves of rhododendrons and mountain laurels.

All developer-owned real estate in The Settings has been sold. There is no on-site sales office. To see the current listings of re-sales in The Settings, please inquire with one of our recommended Local Realtors.

The scenic beauty of The Settings is its primary asset. With a priority for preserving its natural mountain environment, the community amenities were built to complement that principle and were kept at a minimum. This has allowed the homeowners association fees to remain at a very attractive level of $1500 per year (2023). The Settings however offers town water, sewer, and waste disposal services, high-speed fiber optic internet, and curbed roads with many sidewalks, not often found within a mountain development. The Settings of Black Mountain offers great value for those looking for a primary or second home in a Western North Carolina gated community.

Build your mountain getaway with everything you need conveniently  nearby.

The western North Carolina mountains continue to be a very attractive place for people to live. Asheville consistently ranks as one of the best places to retire in the country and has seen a significant increase in real estate activity recently. As one of the most desirable gated communities in the area, The Settings of Black Mountain has experienced very active property sales and home building.

Enjoy the views of the mountain ranges and forests as well as beautiful sunsets from your own front porch or with friends and neighbors on the deck of the clubhouse.

The Clubhouse has a tastefully decorated large living area with a stone fireplace for our many social gatherings throughout the year. It has a small kitchen as well as a meeting room. Residents can host private functions here as well.
