“When you stand here, and look at the ancient river, or the old-growth forest, or the majestic ridgelines on all sides, you get the feeling that this place is magical. Our goal from day one has been to preserve and safeguard this incredible piece of land that we have been entrusted with—not just for our homeowners, but for their children’s children.”
— Jack Fisher, Founder & Owner of French Broad Crossing
Life on the River
Imagine living in your own National Park. That’s precisely the living experience that French Broad Crossing bestows upon families fortunate enough to call this community home. Located along the ancient French Broad River—the third oldest river in the world according to geologists—this picturesque community is world’s away from the stress and toil of everyday life, yet just a short drive from the dynamic city of Asheville, and the charming mountain towns of Hot Springs and Marshall. Within the gates lies a multi-faceted lifestyle that is deeply gratifying. Homes and homesites here are surrounded by land that is held in conservation to ensure a timeless living experience that is at once private, expansive, and in accord with nature. Family and friends can gather here throughout the year to create magical memories—and enjoy a legacy that will be passed down from generation to generation.

A Southern Living Inspired Community.
Southern Living magazine has selected French Broad Crossing as one of their premier “Inspired Living” communities: a distinction that’s bestowed on just a select few properties across the country. It was chosen because of its breathtaking mountain location along the French Broad River, poised atop hundreds of acres of land protected from future development. In addition, French Broad Crossing boasts Asheville’s only 2017 Southern Living Inspired Home, which is open daily for tours.
