A Natural Paradise Meets Cultural Sophistication

At Preserve Communities, we don’t believe in compromise. We think you should have it all: nature in all its unspoiled glory, yet just 30 minutes from the dining, shopping, and entertainment of Asheville, North Carolina.

The beauty of both of our communities—French Broad Crossing and The Preserve at Little Pine—is that they give families the privacy and serenity of a natural park, with easy access to the cultural epicenter of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is truly the best of both worlds.

“I looked at a lot of places along the east coast, and French Broad Crossing really won me over because of its gorgeous mountain setting, right on the French Broad River, and its proximity to such a dynamic city like Asheville. I think it’s perfect for me and the children to have access to both nature and culture.”

—George Engel,
French Broad Crossing homeowner
