Ventana’s community design concept focuses on the goal of providing a neighborhood that connects people and their homes to the surrounding landscape. The community achieves this goal by establishing several priorities to land development:

  • Protect the land’s natural beauty and resources 
  • Minimize site disturbance during construction 
  • Use innovative stormwater management practices during and after construction 
  • Design homes that are appropriate for their specific property 
  • Provide amenities that encourage neighbors to engage with the landscape
  •  

Ventana includes approximately 100 acres of forested mountainside with dramatic views of downtown Asheville and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. Creeks, trails, native hardwood and rhododendron forests characterize the natural landscape of the community. Neighborhood parks and other community amenities are planned for future development. A total of approximately 80 private lots are planned for phase 1 and phase 2.
