Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains at an elevation of 3,000 feet, Ventana provides a private, gated community where residents can appreciate the luxury and beauty of nature. Ventana is a place to raise a family, to experience nature and all its possibilities, and to enjoy the culture of downtown Asheville.
