Hendersonville Real Estate
Located amidst the majestic mountains of the Southern Appalachians, Hendersonville has come to be known as the “City of Four Seasons” and as an ideal retirement community. Since the early 1900’s, Hendersonville has attracted visitors and families seeking a gentle climate, lovely mountain scenery, and great recreational resources. It is located in Henderson County, which has a population of over 104,000, and is by far the largest city in the county.
Situated 2,200 feet above sea level, on a mountain plateau between the Blue Ridge and the Great Smoky Mountains, Hendersonville is blessed with a moderate and mild climate, yet the area still experiences the four seasons. With a mean summer temperature of around 70 degrees and 40 degrees in the winter, the climate is conducive to year-round outdoor recreation.
Tourism is a major industry in Hendersonville, with agriculture and industry also strong economic forces. Noted for its scenic beauty and tranquility, Hendersonville has industrial development restrictions that encourage small industries that will not disturb the peaceful quality of Henderson County life. Retirement development is also a major economic force in Hendersonville as retirees continue to flock to the area. Hendersonville also has a vibrant and modern visitor center located at 201 South Main Street downtown, and should be your first stop before exploring the area.
Blessed with an abundance of cultural opportunities, Hendersonville offers something for all ages. Symphony orchestra, theatres, libraries, and festivals throughout the year enrich the life of Hendersonville residents. Henderson County is also rich in parks, picnic areas, hiking trails and other outdoor attractions.
Over the years, Hendersonville has preserved its traditional downtown Main Street area from the decline which has happened in so many other cities. And Main Street has been transformed into a beautiful tree-lined avenue complete with flower-filled brick planters. A stroll down Main Street will surround you with sounds of classical music, sights of exquisite seasonal plantings in a hometown setting of boutiques, numerous antique and clothing shops and an old fashioned pharmacy, plus benches on which to sit and people-watch. Few hometowns have remained as beautiful, vital, and alive as historic downtown Hendersonville. The streets bring history to life and bring the best of yesteryear into the excitement of today.
