Property Description

This is a spacious and well-designed East Asheville home, just ten minutes from downtown Asheville with one foot in the country. Pasture land across the road. Abundant wildlife in the area. The Blue Ridge Parkway and many trails are minutes away. The home is WIFI-equipped, and also features a 49" flat screen Smart TV in the main living area with soundbar & subwoofer (there is no cable, but through the Smart TV, you can access any subscription you have - Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. - as well as the internet and Youtube. The home can be what you make it, a tranquil retreat for contemplation, creativity and quiet relaxation or a beautiful space to entertain your family or friends.

The Space:

A spacious-feeling 1,800 square feet, the home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms on a 1/2 acre of land. The home has quite a unique, contemporary design, with cathedral ceilings and a semi-open floorpan. I'd boast that it's tastefully furnished. People say it has a nice flow! It is an excellent design for entertaining.

The master suite is quite luxurious and includes an all natural latex king-size mattress in addition to his & hers sinks, a water closet, tub and a walk-in shower. The two smaller bedrooms are located on the opposing wing from the master suite which ensures plenty of privacy. There is a king-size bed in one of the rooms there, and a full-size in the other. In addition, the couch is quite comfortable, roomy even when the back cushions are taken off. The wing has a shared full bath (with walk-in shower), there is another half bath in the main living area.

The kitchen includes a gas stove & oven, toaster, electric kettle, coffee maker, french press, and is well stocked with cooking supplies, plates, bowls, glasses, etc. There are 2 dining areas; the first is a bar-height breakfast nook table with two chairs; the second is a counter-height four seater in the dining area in the main space.

The living area features a 49" flat screen Smart TV with soundbar and subwoofer. Stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus and more with your subscriptions (no cable, sorry!).

The home also boasts a very private, plant-rich patio, equipped with comfortable seating and shade sails in the warmer months.

We use non-harmful/biodegradable soaps & cleaning products in the home and are moving towards all-natural and hypoallergenic bedding and sheets in all the bedrooms. There are no pesticides used around the home.

Guest Access:

Full access to home minus the garage and attic space (storage!).

Interaction with Guests:

I will be available as needed, happy to help with getting acquainted with the area if necessary, and, of course, available to resolve any issues that may arise with the property.

Things to note:

There is a complimentary tea and coffee bar, which is stocked with teas, coffee, coffee filters, and includes an electric coffee grinder, an electric kettle, and a coffee maker.

Basic necessities are provided: linens, towels, toilet paper, soap and shampoo.

So you know, there is no microwave (there is a gas stove & oven, and toaster in the kitchen).

We've had people mention wanting cable channels, but, at least for now, we're sticking to our guns with the Smart TV option. After all, we are creating a sanctuary, free from the overpowering stimuli of news channels, etc. You still can, however, cozy up to a movie or your favorite TV series through Netflix, Amazon Prime, or whatever service you subscribe to.

Participate in composting if you like - the garden will display its gratitude :)

By the way, the jets in the whirlpool tub are out of commission for the time being (needs a new motor, apparently, but that may be remedied by the time you arrive).

PLEASE NOTE: Although still a relatively new listing on VRBO/HomeAway, this home stays booked, almost solid, throughout the year between single room listings and whole house listings across several platforms.

The Neighborhood:

12 minutes from downtown Asheville but we have friendly cows just across the street. The house is minutes away from lots of trails and the stars are brighter out here!

Getting Around:

It's advisable to have a vehicle as it's a mile and a half along a curvy mountain road to the nearest bus stop.

Downtown Asheville: 10-12 minutes Blue Ridge Parkway: 5 minutes Biltmore Estate: 12 minutes Black Mountain, NC: 15 minutes Asheville Airport: 25 minutes UNC-Asheville: 14 minutes Warren Wilson College: 5 minutes

Great getaway

Great location only minutes from anywhere in the Asheville area. Home is nice and comfortable. could use a little updating. homeowner is great to work with.

Great location - very near to all Asheville yet in the country.

Property needs some TLC. Proper cleaning from bathrooms to grounds, would be a start. Kitchen equipment needs overhaul. Not enough chairs for dining table (3 usable?). All in all lots of potential just needs some hands on attention. As a former vacation property owner I remember how much attention to detail is required.

Highly Recommended

We had a blast in Asheville and Patrick's home suited us perfectly. The kids were so sad to leave and I couldn't blame them! Beautiful home, placed nicely on the edge of town. Hoping to be back!

Family Get-a-way to Ashville.

Had a great time with Family in Ashville. Went to the Builtmore. Great food and crafts. The weather was cold.

Girl's Getaway

Nice home outside the city but within 15-20 min of the Biltmore, Biltmore Village and downtown. Ample parking for 3 cars which was a real plus. Small patio for outdoor enjoyment but not much area if you need play space for children. Cell service was good at the house for several providers but GPS leaving the house had some flaws. I would recommend... Read More
