Every year, the Property Owners Association at Mountain Air hosts the Ferrari Club. They enjoy the three mile ride from the gate up to the runway at the top of the mountain. They get to do time trials on the runway and have lunch. We residents get to enjoy the show. This year, a few Heritage Ridge Villas residents invited friends and we sat along the side of the road to watch the Ferraris roar up the mountain. In the video below, you get to see a view from a drone. It's a nice tour of the mountain.
One of our residents, Louise Lindsay, created the following interpretation of her favorite red Ferrari, as it sped by in a time trial on the runway.
The Mountain Air Property Owners' Association just sponsored the first annual 5 K run up Mountain Air. You might want to sign up for next year's run! It is open to anyone. It was a big success.
The video to preview the road for the race also shows you the main road, Mountain Air Drive, up the mountain, all the way to the runway and Mountain Air Village at the top. The Heritage Ridge Villas are about half way up this drive of 3 miles. You can see in the video that the drive up the mountain is on a well paved and easy to drive road, with only gentle curves, not harrowing switchbacks.
The Heritage Ridge Villas are an easy 35 minute, 4 lane expressway drive, from Asheville. The final drive up the mountain is shown here. Unlike many other mountain communities, Mountain Air is close to Asheville, but at an altitude that brings cooler temperatures, with an easy drive to and up the mountain. When it is 85 degrees in Asheville in the summer, our temperatures are below 75 degrees because of our altitude. Our fall weather is beautiful and mild. Today, at night, it is 65 degrees on my outside porch.
Enjoy this video drive up our mountain, especially the views at the end. Remember that the Heritage Ridge Villas are only half way up the mountain, rather close to the entry gate. You can see how you gain altitude as you drive up the mountain. Come for a visit.
Nearby Asheville is always winning awards and making many different top 10 lists. A recent Country Living article ranks Asheville #1, among the top ten coziest cities! Enjoy a visit to Asheville, perhaps to one of their great restaurants, or breweries, to an art gallery, for some bluegrass music, or check out all the many Asheville activities on our helpful Links page.
We have the best location in the world here at the Heritage Ridge Villas. We are an easy 35 minute 4 lane highway drive from Asheville. But we gain 1500 ft. in elevation along the short trip. That means we have much cooler summer temperatures than Asheville. Every one of our villas has amazing long range views, as we are nestled on a ridge top with views to the east and the west sometimes. We have our own on site hiking trails and all the amenities of Mountain Air, including restaurants, a spa and swimming pool, tennis courts and golf, But lovely Asheville beckons whenever we are up for trying a new restaurant, seeing the latest movie, or attending one of the world class festivals that call Asheville home.
Right here in Burnsville, once a month, classic movies on the big screen on Monday night at 7 p.m. What a treasure!
