It’s well-known that anything that includes the name Biltmore is typically upscale. Biltmore Forest is no exception.  Biltmore Forest is located on the southern side of the Biltmore Estate. The land originally belonged to George Vanderbilt. Eventually, it was sold and subdivided into large lots for residential use.
