Leicester

Why you'd want to live in Leicester

Leicester (pronounced “Lester”) sits northwest of downtown Asheville and was originally referred to as Turkey Creek. This area has seen considerable growth in the past decade and will continue to grow over the coming years. If you’re moving to Asheville and would like to be close to town with a rural feel, then this is the place for you! Leicester has the benefits of expansive views and rolling hills while also being very accessible into downtown. This area is rich in history and still retains a local pride amongst its residents. In this part of Asheville, you can find small urban communities such as Estelle Park or estates with views as far as the eyes can see like Turkey Creek.
