The Owner purchased this house in 2010
Because of the spectacular views and proximity to downtown Asheville.
We enjoy entertaining here. The kitchen, dining, and living are all in one large room. The music system makes the house especially livable. We can listen to jazz or blues at the table while the kids listen to "their stuff" downstairs; any can be muted independently, i.e. while a movie is being watched. Sunday morning breakfasts on one of the decks overlooking the city are nice. The sauna is very relaxing. It includes a six-foot bench, indirect lighting, and music.
