Welcome to Olivette
A new kind of community

There's No Place Like Olivette

Olivette is a 346-acre planned community and historic farm, located along the French Broad River, just 6.7 miles from downtown Asheville. An agrihood community, Olivette is home to a vibrant vegetable, fruit and flower farm. The community also provides seven acres of riverfront beach, a large private river island, several miles of walking trails, community-wide geothermal heating and cooling, community gardens, a pavilion and a fire-circle amphitheater, Little Free Libraries, a bike-sharing program, and fiber-to-home broadband internet access.

Not Your Typical Neighborhood

Olivette isn't your "typical" neighborhood. Our community is designed so that residents can breathe deeply, soak up mountain life, unplug and enjoy the outdoors. We provide amenities to help you and your family explore, learn, create and unwind. Life at Olivette is not designed to be isolated but experiential. Whether you're an artist looking for the space to set up an easel and paint Blue Ridge sunsets, a parent interested in teaching your young children about their ecological footprint, a marathon runner looking for a home where you can walk out your front door and onto mountain trails, or a retiree who loves to fish, Olivette will provide the space you need to live a healthy, vibrant and connected life. Adventure and natural beauty abound in this new kind of community.

Your Event, Our Perfect Setting

Whether you're looking for a scenic location for your wedding, a relaxed and adventurous environment for a corporate celebration or holiday party, or you're simply hosting a get-together because it's a beautiful summer day, Olivette has space for your event.
