Welcome to our Asheville home. We purchased this home in January 2012 after owning a town home in Black Mountain for 2 years. We are both native floridians, visiting Asheville /Hendersonville for summer camps and family vacations when we were children. Asheville was our summer getaway of choice. We raised our children in So. Florida and moved to Carrboro, NC (near Chapel Hill) in 1999, 13 years ago.
While many of our neighbors and friends flock to the coast, Asheville continued to be a favorite getaway. At this time we are moving from Carrboro to a downtown Durham loft as our primary residence. I would not be surprised if Asheville turned out to be our primary residence in the future. Why be in the Triangle, when you can be in the mountains.
We bought our current digs in West Asheville about a year ago. Most of our days in Asheville begin with a walk to the French Broad River Park. Just a block away from the house, how could you not. One of the many things in Asheville I never get tired of.
We love going to art galleries, which there are plenty of here, finding too much we love and cherish, ending up purchasing a few. Art is undoubtedly worth it when you can enjoy it on a daily basis.
Hiking and biking at Biltmore, the NC Arboretum and along the Blue Ridge Parkway, all a short drive are some of our favorite activities.
Lunch at the Piscah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway is spectacular. It is just about a 30 minute drive from the house. We went there as children, we went there when our children were at camp in Hendersonville, continue to have lunch there periodically and i anticipate many more lunches there, looking forward. The food is definitely good and the view while dining is priceless.
Kayaking and tubing on the French Broad are also activities, we just can't get tired of. Downtown, the River Arts district, and West Asheville are normal outings, after we catch our breath from whatever preceded that particular day. Of course sitting high up in the trees on one the decks in the back of our home over looking the meadow and creek with a bottle of wine is fine way to end the day.
Enjoy our home, enjoy Asheville and surrounding areas, it will grow on you for sure, sorry or pleased to tell you. You never know, it could end up your primary residence also.
