Ciel, a mountaintop Luxury Community in Asheville


At Ciĕl, we designed our amenities to be a natural extension of the existing landscape. Nature is the ultimate amenity; everything we’ve added is done so to help residents connect with the environment.

The centerpiece is an open-air pavilion measuring almost 30 by 40 feet. With an eight-foot overhang, the pavilion will become a focal point for seasonal events, family gatherings and impromptu get-togethers.

It is also an understated architectural wonder that eloquently expresses both the attention to detail and commitment to natural beauty that are the hallmark of the community.

CL_9Around the pavilion is an active organic garden for colorful home-grown flowers and tasty vegetables, a fire pit perfect for warming up on a cool fall evening, and a playground that seems to have sprung from the boulders and logs themselves – just the thing to spark the imaginations of budding naturalists.

From here, and running throughout the 117-acre property, a network of private trails offers access to scenic views, picnic nooks, and secluded spots ideal for yoga, meditation or quiet contemplation.
