Mountain living. Uptown lifestyle. Only at Southcliff.
When buying or building a home in Western North Carolina, you typically have to choose between the mountains and Main Street, between a rural or urban lifestyle. Located on the south face of Cedar Cliff Mountain, Southcliff is gently nestled within a natural setting offering panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. At the same time, it’s located just seven miles from the shops, restaurants and the impressive art scene of downtown Asheville. It is a community that offers the serenity of the mountains AND the activity of Main Street. It’s the best of both worlds – right at your doorstep.

Reverence for the Land
We have great respect for the land on which the community of Southcliff is located. This fact is immediately recognized in the design of our streetscapes, signage and overall architectural style. Each home incorporates a variety of natural elements into its design in order to blend with the setting instead of interrupting it. Southcliff is authentic mountain living, integrated with intentional refinement. Look a little closer and you’ll discover that almost half of the community is designated as preserved green space, so that this natural beauty can endure for generations.
