The luxury real estate market seems to be on the rise, with many generously priced homes being bought all over America, and The Fitzgerald at Grove Park in Asheville, North Carolina is proof of that boom. The Fitzgerald has been seeing some pretty impressive sales this summer, selling six of their 24 luxury condominiums since May. They are hoping that their newfound momentum keeps going until they find buyers for the last four residences, ranging from 1,900 to 2,300 square feet and priced between $1 and $1.3 million.
“We have seen remarkable interest in The Fitzgerald at Grove Park, from buyers coming from Florida and the coastal Carolinas, all the way to Texas and beyond,” says Dan Whalen, New Home Communities Manager for Beverly-Hanks & Associates — the brokerage handling sales for the property. “People who love Asheville and the Grove Park Inn, and are seeking high-quality construction but in a smaller, easier to maintain footprint, have fallen in love with The Fitzgerald. You feel like you are away in the mountains, but you are surrounded by the finest comforts and amenities of a five-star resort, and you are a five-minute drive from the heart of downtown. Many people are finding that this is perfect for them, and at this pace, we expect the final four residences to sell quickly.”
Found next to the famed Omni Grove Park Inn, The Fitzgerald is surrounded by natural beauty that attracts countless visitors each year. Whether you're looking to buy a first home or fourth, you'll have a backdrop comprised of the Carolinas' Blue Ridge Mountains, Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Mississippi River. Since Asheville is the largest city in Western North Carolina, you'll also have plenty of cultural and culinary excursions to take up your time.
The remaining one-level condos feature either two or three bedrooms and full baths with deep soaking tubs, panoramic views of the mountains and downtown Asheville, Viking and Sub-Zero appliances in the kitchens, and a wine refrigerator. The homes also include fireplaces, wood floors, private terraces, and semi-private elevators.
A perk of living at The Fitzgerald are all the resort amenities with a range of community membership programs that are designed to fit different lifestyles. Aside from being pampered in their spa, you can enjoy a few holes on the Donald Ross-designed golf course, play some tennis on their indoor and outdoor courts, or enjoy some racquetball, yoga, and fitness classes.
