Conveniently located just west of Asheville and surrounded by stunning mountain views sits the pastoral community of Candler. This Buncombe County region in Hominy Valley offers all the advantages of country life – more acreage on average than city properties, in a wider price range – coupled with easy access to downtown Asheville and a multitude of retail amenities.
Originally settled by the native Cherokee, Candler was claimed by German, Scottish and English settlers in the early to mid-1700s. In 1885, Civil War Capt. John K. Hoyt resided in a Queen Anne style house in Candler, which today operates as a historic bed and breakfast, the Engadine Inn.

Candler properties for purchase run the gamut: Everything from working farms to low-maintenance townhomes is available. Tucked-away estates, rambling ranches in subdivisions, compact cottages and vacant land for building a custom home are all available in Candler.
The Farm at Bradshaw Lane, Lindon Cove Crossing and Justice Ridge Estates are just a few of the communities that offer quality-built homes in a beautiful mountain setting with minimal HOA restrictions.

The community is served by three public elementary schools and one middle school; most of Candler lies within the district of Enka High School.
