Crowfields was carefully developed at the site of a former dairy farm by a team of contractors, architects, and landscape designers. Their goal was to create a condominium complex for empty-nesters and retirees. Their vision was to blend the finest aspects of mountain living with the rich cultural and educational opportunities the city of Asheville provides.
We are a vibrant group of caring people from a wide variety of backgrounds – retired business people, healthcare providers, educators, writers, artists, lovers of nature and sports – who value the best that community life has to offer. We look to the future while upholding the vision of the original designers to keep Crowfields safe, beautiful, relevant and dynamic.
One of the great features of life at Crowfields is the rich variety of activities and opportunities offered that stimulate both body and mind. While privacy is valued here, being involved helps foster a sense of community.
Here is a Crowfields resident describing a typical day:
“In the morning, I invigorate my day by joining the group of early walkers or perhaps tending my plot in the community garden. Other choices for exercise are group classes at the clubhouse, laps in the Crowfields pool, or simply a stroll on the walking paths beside the creeks of our beautiful grounds, stopping occasionally to enjoy the solitude.”
“During the day I might socialize with the crafters, play mahjongg or a hand of cards, participate in the writers group or book club, or take advantage of the many interesting presentations and special events in the clubhouse. Activity continues late into the afternoon while playing a spirited game of bocce with my neighbors.”
“At Crowfields we also enjoy regularly scheduled dinners (both pot-luck and catered) plus coordinated outings to local plays, concerts and other venues.”
Our residents find fulfillment in many ways: the pursuit of a career or hobby, volunteer work, the great outdoors or just the pleasure of taking life one day at a time.
