Located in convenient West Asheville, this unique 650 square foot apartment rests atop a private home overlooking the River Arts District. Built in 1925, our well-maintained house is characteristic of old West Asheville featuring hardwood floors and spacious rooms. The property has mountain views from nearly every window and is flooded with natural light.
For our guests we have a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, a European king size bed, tub & shower, large walk-in closet, air conditioning, a covered area for bikes & parking, work area and wireless internet & cable.
Our neighborhood is quiet but eclectic with a short walk to lively Haywood Road where you can find great coffee, BBQ, pub-grub or fancier fare. The W1 or W2 buses stop a few blocks away from the house and can deliver you to downtown Asheville in 15 minutes.
Come enjoy all that Asheville has to offer from the many music venues, award-winning local beer, delightful restaurants, festivals, antiquing and an abundance of natural attractions.
Guests/tenants have the unilateral right to occupy the premises for up to 30 consecutive days at the per diem rate.
My family and I moved to Asheville in July of 2011 from New York, New York. After many years in the city, we decided it was time to get back to an environment that was a little closer to our roots. I was born in Atlanta and lived in Georgia for the first half of my life and Nick, my husband is from Vancouver, B.C. We both missed fresh air, living closer to nature and let's face it- more than 600 square feet in which to live. It is so nice to now be able to invite friends, family and YOU to stay with us and enjoy this wonderful city surrounded by National Parks! We are an artistic family- Nick is a painter and teaches drawing and painting in several parts of the country and I am a former painter turned textile designer turned interior designer. The 'Doll House' as it has been named by the sisters who grew up here and now live in the two houses next door is a spacious, simple and colorful retreat that we hope you will enjoy.
We looked at properties in all areas of Asheville before we bought and nothing compared to this house. It is spacious but not over-whelming, has huge closets, a sturdy foundation, adorable windows with many original panes, light and views that are amazing and our neighbors are the salt of the earth. We are close to everything, can walk to several good restaurants and yet enjoy a quiet street. Who could want more?
Please feel free to pick from the neighborhood kiwi tree across from our home or sit on our front porch swing during your stay with us. We look forward to sharing our home with you.
