Creston is a gated, mountaintop community located eight miles south of Black Mountain and just east of Asheville. It offers privacy and serenity, a place where all the homes were built to take advantage of the commanding mountain views. The community of Creston is a well-thought out development where foot trails meander through the Creston Reserve, and several overlooks provide views of Crooked Creek Valley and the Hickory Nut Mountains to the east. Creston is located on a ridge with seven sites encircling a neighborhood green and park. In order to keep traffic at a minimum, the roadways in the community are not designed as thoroughfares but as avenues off of the roundabout, each ending in a cul de sac. This secluded mountaintop village has easy access on and off the mountain, and although very private, it is only a short drive to the town of Black Mountain and about 15 minutes to the city of Asheville via Interstate 40. Some of the attractions in the Creston area include The Blue Ridge Parkway, Cold Mountain, The Folk Art Center (just outside of Asheville) and the Biltmore Estate and Gardens, which is the largest private home in America. Historic downtown Asheville has art galleries and museums, specialty shops and restaurants featuring everything from fresh North Carolina brook trout to Mediterranean style cooking. The mountains of surrounding Creston are also filled with numerous outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, white water rafting and snow skiing.

Creston Weather & Climate

The mountainous Northeast region of Tennessee has a temperate climate with moderately cold winters and warm, humid summers. Precipitation is distributed fairly evenly throughout the year so there is no distinct wet or dry seasons. October has the least rainfall, July the most. Snowfall is variable from year to year, and some winters have relatively little. Thunderstorms occur anytime of the year, but are most frequent in spring and summer. Summer temperatures are rarely extreme, but the high humidity often makes it seem hotter than it actually is. Severe storms are infrequent in the state, being east of the center of tornado activity, south of most blizzard conditions, and too far inland to be affected by hurricanes.
