Covenants & Design Guidelines

Like many communities, The Thoms Estate makes use of covenants and architectural guidelines for the benefit of all owners and their neighbors. Neighborhoods with properly drafted and enforced covenants and architectural standards have been shown to retain property value better than those with poorly enforced covenants or no standards at all. Neighborhoods that follow their covenants and standards tend to be safer, look better, maintain better relationships with local governments, and better retain or increase the investments that homeowners have made in their properties.

The Village at the Thoms Estate, also known as Phase 2 and home of our Chateaux, has additional neighborhood covenants. This part of the community offers worry-free living, and the neighborhood association is in charge of all lawn maintenance and certain other exterior maintenance. Be sure to speak to our sales staff about how we can make your home ownership worry-free, allowing you to relax, travel and work in peace.

Please speak to our sales staff to learn more about how these covenants protect your investment and ensure that the Thoms Estate will reach all the potential expected of the gem of North Asheville.
