Of course, our clients do have the option to consult and bring in their own builder as well.
Is the Starview community gated?
Yes, Starview Heights is a gated mountain community with a solid HOA (Homeowner’s Association). According to internationally acclaimed security consultant, Jordan Frankel of Global Security Experts, “As a 20-year security veteran, I am of the opinion that gated communities not only provide a solid physical barrier, but also act as a psychological deterrent for would-be criminals.”
Of course there are other advantages of living in a gated community as well:
Reduced traffic. There tends to be a lot less and slower car traffic on the streets of a gated community. This naturally cuts down on the noise levels and makes for a safer playing environment for any neighborhood kids.
Decreased number of solicitors. A secured gate prevents door-to-door solicitors from coming and going at will. This discourages strangers from attempting to visit the neighborhood, which significantly decreases the number of folks that can come knocking at your door.
Specific community rules and standards. Any good gated community will have certain rules and standards that its residents must follow. The benefit of a solid HOA is that it requires everyone to take care of their homes and surrounding property, which in turn can help keep up the value of the community’s homes.
Yet we do understand that living in a gated community like Starview Heights isn’t for everyone. That is why we invite you to schedule a tour today to come see Starview Heights for yourself.
Who is the developer behind Starview Heights?
The homeowners at Starview Heights have made the ultimate investment in their north Buncombe County community – they took over when the developer of their gated community was foreclosed upon and out of the picture.
Four homeowners are the developers. The group took over the property in 2012. Since that time, many home lots have been sold, and several spec homes have been built – all on the 23-acre mountainside with views from Mount Pisgah in the west to far into the High County to the north.

What is Starview Heights’ source of water?
Originally incorporated in 1875, the Town of Weaverville provides part of the Starview Heights community with city water and sewer services. The homes not serviced by the Town of Weaverville are on a public water system.
The Ivy River watershed is the source of drinking water for the Town of Weaverville. It is also a back-up water supply for the Town of Mars Hill and the University of Mars Hill.
The Town of Weaverville also maintains connections with the Asheville-Buncombe Regional Water Authority and the Town of Mars Hill Water System in case an emergency supply is ever needed.
The Ivy River has two forks: the Big Ivy Creek and the Little Ivy Creek. They combine at the Highway 19/23 (new I-26) Bridge to form the Ivy River.
The Big Ivy Creek originates deep in the Pisgah National Forest, while the Little Ivy Creek comes from one of the most agriculturally rich areas of Madison County, just north of Weaverville.
The Big Ivy section of the Pisgah Forest contains over 3,600 acres of old-growth forests and is home to at least 40 rare and endangered species. Native brook trout spawn in the Big Ivy Creek headwaters, which is a federally protected and monitored drinking water supply.
