Historic Hideaway in the Hub of Asheville: Kenilworth Neighborhood


Kenilworth Neighborhood Tour from Mosaic Realty.


Named after Castle Kenilworth in England, Asheville’s own Kenilworth Neighborhood offers tranquil serenity only minutes from the city’s finest shopping, dining and entertainment.  Nestled between Biltmore Village on the south and downtown Asheville to the north, Kenilworth has long been an prestigious residential district in the Asheville area.


A Brief History of Kenilworth


As holds true of several Asheville neighborhoods, Kenilworth residences emerged around the presence of a large inn.  James Chiles purchased the Patton Farm and subsequently developed The Kenilworth Inn, a large Tudor Revival building  in 1926.  It is now used as an apartment building and is on the National Register of Historic Places.  To provide recreational opportunities for guests, he created the 19 acre Lake Kenilworth.  Nearly one hundred years later, this lake is still providing a peaceful habitat for wildlife and stunning vistas  for residents.


Kenilworth Neighborhood Architecture


Having had its heyday in the 1920s, Kenilworth exhibits styles of architecture characteristic of this time period.  Quaint bungalows are nestled within the mature wooded landscape, and Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor, and Prairie gems perch atop the gentle hills.  Increasingly, you will find green infill populating the neighborhood and providing a fantastic opportunity for eco-friendly living.


Convenient to Work and Play


Kenilworth Neighborhood is located within a few miles of several of the area’s largest employers.  Many medical industry professionals live in Kenilworth due to its proximity to Mission Hospital.  Being located between Biltmore and downtown, it is also an ideal location for tourism industry professionals.


In addition to  having its own scenic lake, the neighborhood also has its own park. Kenilworth Park, located in the heart of the neighborhood,  has picnic tables and grills, ballfields and courts, and a playground.  Merely a few minute drive away, you will find yourself in the excitement of downtown Asheville or the quaint serenity of Biltmore Village.
