There’s more to Olivette than our breathtaking natural surroundings and our dedication to sustainable living. We’re dedicated to building the kind of community anyone would be proud to call home. From dog walks to book club, farm to table dinners to movie nights, there’s always something happening at Olivette.
Our amenities are just one part of the picture- our residents truly make Olivette special. Olivette feels like home because we’re building a community where our connections to food and nature, to our neighbors, and the arts are essential elements of our ethos. Life at Olivette is focused on sustainability and lifelong learning. From our community orchards and gardens to our parks and trail systems, we strive to create amenities that foster true connections between our residents, each other, as well as the environment.
The process of planning Olivette has been and continues to be thorough and thoughtful, with many extraordinary people contributing to the vision. Our inspiration comes from the tireless work of Asheville visionaries, historians, educators, artists, farmers, architects, planners, and community builders. Several books have offered guiding principles, including Blue Mind by Wallace J. Nichols,
