Malvern Hills / Sulphur Springs Community
Sulphur Springs takes its name from the mineral spring in its midst, which was a popular destination during the 19th century, thanks to its purported healing powers, and a hotel, which attracted wealthy planters in the summer
months. The close-knit community of Malvern Hills was eventually established on the site of the old Sulphur Springs Hotel in 1925. Sulphur Springs and Malvern Hills now are separate but very close neighbors, with the former lying on the west side of Smokey Park Highway, and the latter on its east side.
These two cozy, close-in neighborhoods offer affordable homes within Asheville’s city limits. Located between West Asheville and Enka-Candler, this sweet spot is a seven-minute drive into Downtown and conveniently halfway between highways I-240 and I-40.
With a community club, public swimming pool, and organized neighborhood potlucks, Malvern Hills and Sulphur Springs offer that community experience that our isolating modern lifestyles are so often missing. And, with new constructions well under $300,000, existing homes under $200,000, and plots of land starting around $30,000, it is attainable.
