Sherwood Forest Subdivision

In the words of Asheville NC Times after reviewing Sherwood Forest in the 1960’s, “Arthur Middleton Dehon has done the seemingly impossible – he’s made real estate development and conservation compatible”. Unofficially named The Nation’s First Audobon Residential Community, Sherwood Forest was developed, and remains, a community of congeniality and fellowship where neighbors share a love for the natural beauty and wildlife of the area. Homes are carefully constructed to disturb as little of the landscape as possible. Four lakes, streams, and seemingly endless trails are dispersed throughout the 1,000-acre development which also includes a pool, community barn, community gardens, and 18-hole golf course with llamas featured as occasional caddies. The community is a short eight miles to downtown Brevard, yet has a feel of being otherworldly. Rich in history, the community is conscientiously neighborly and committed to protecting and conserving the native landscape.
