Ramble Biltmore Forest Real Estate, Asheville NC
The Ramble is located in south Asheville NC near the Blue Ridge Parkway (see map) and consists of nearly 1,000 acres of land originally acquired for the estate. In fact, Vanderbilt walked daily from Biltmore House to North Ducker Mountain, where The Ramble is located. The Ramble offers the best in Asheville luxury homes. See these beautiful listings below.
From The Ramble's summit can be viewed Biltmore Estate, the French Broad River and Mount Pisgah, the area's highest elevation. The Ramble lies along the southern boundary of the historic Town of Biltmore Forest, just 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. This small, captivating city is regularly chosen as one of the best places in the country to live, by sources as respected yet diverse as Outside Magazine, Rand McNally and AARP Magazine.
The Ramble Biltmore Forest real estate will be composed into inviting neighborhoods, connected by a network of parks, playing fields and other public green spaces. In his greatest designs, Olmsted designed green spaces that represented a variety of moods and uses. At Biltmore Estate, for example, the Italian Garden was envisioned as an outdoor "room" and used by the family for tennis and croquet, while the Estate's Ramble remained a place for solitary walks. Inspired by Olmsted's example, The Ramble at Biltmore Forest will feature abundant public gardens, community parks and green spaces. As with Olmsted's plans, these are no ordinary parks, each a carbon copy of the next. Instead, residents will be treated to a rich variety. An array of trails and walkways will allow residents to "ramble" the mountainside, either on foot or by bicycle. This trail system is extensive, allowing the walker to roam from stream sides and shady glens to open fields and mountain vistas.
When George Vanderbilt set about creating his famed home of Biltmore Estate near Asheville, he called upon the nation's greatest landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, to design the estate's gardens and grounds. At Biltmore Estate, Vanderbilt strove to create a self-sustaining community, surrounded by the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. He and Olmsted shared a vision of nature's importance in restoring harmony and balance to modern life. It's this love of landscape that will animate The Ramble. The design and conservation principles will closely follow those found at Biltmore Estate and Biltmore Forest.
