Enka-Candler Real Estate
This mountain community nestles in Hominy Valley, approximately halfway between Asheville (to the east) and Canton (to the west) via Interstate 40 (about 20 minutes either way). Mt. Pisgah, with access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, stands to the south and Newfound Gap to the north. Enka is located in Buncombe County, located on the west side of Asheville. Enka-Candler is located close to all shopping, Asheville, French Broad River and Blue Ridge Parkway.
Enka was developed in 1928 as a company town for the Dutch-based American Enka Company which at the time was the nation's largest rayon producing manufacturer. In 1929 the company began developing a community plan that included employee houses and that area became known as Enka Village. Enka Village is now an historic community, with most of the area around the former Enka Lake transformed into a private mountain community, Biltmore Lake. There continues to be some light industry along the major highways although most of Enka is still agricultural and residential in nature.
