A 3 bedroom, 2 bath home convenient to the best Asheville has to offer.
Our 1910 farmhouse has been mindfully restored and updated to blend warm historic details with cool, clean lines. At 1,800 square feet, this two story home is light, bright, peaceful, and private. Less than 1.5 miles from downtown Asheville, with easy access to the River Arts District, Biltmore, West Asheville, Grove Park Inn, and more. Everything is a short drive or Uber ride away.
There are three bedrooms located on the second floor: a spacious king bedroom, queen bedroom, and cozy full bedroom. The king bedroom boasts an antique sleigh bed and 1800s princess dresser. This grand room gives visitors a chance to unwind and soak in the quiet of the mountainside. The original hardwood floors add character and remind us of a simpler time.
The newly remodeled queen bedroom is adjoined to an antechamber complete with an antique desk and granite topped dresser. We highlighted some of the original architecture in this 100+ year old home by exposing part of the brick chimney. The headboard is a relic of the Grove Park Inn and we choose it because of the way it grants natural light into the space and adds warm character with its solid wood design. We added a barn door feature to the closet to keep the room functional and modern but also close to its rustic roots.
The full bedroom showcases an antique spindle bed, an updated Einstein light fixture, and antique dresser complete with a mirror. The whimsical all cotton linens remind us of a simple, farm-style way of life. Works by local artists adorn the walls. For some couples, the full-size bed will work perfectly. For extra space, the two couches in the living room make for additional sleeping areas.
There are two full bathrooms, one on each floor; both have been remodeled with updated fixtures throughout. The upstairs bathroom was completely redone with sophisticated features and thoughtful design in mind. There is nothing "rustic" about this bathroom, as you will find when you slide the modern glass doors behind you and take in the rain shower showered. The downstairs bathroom provides a second location for showering or freshening up after a long day of hikes, biking, or exploring the breweries or antique outlets of Asheville.
The main level of the home is a welcoming space. Our spacious, bright, and inviting living room offers multiple sitting areas, a large flat-screen TV, a Roku for streaming entertainment, and plentiful windows for soaking up the peace of your surroundings. In the heart of the home, our sitting room is styled to embrace the character, architecture, and ambiance of this 100+ year old house and designed with a nod to the era in which it was built. This space offers you the opportunity to sit, look inward, and slow down. Catch up with your friends, catch up on your reading, enjoy a local brew, catch your breath. Take several moments to remember all the work you do to build and support your own life and see that personal work in metaphorical parallel to structure and support of the exposed beams and tireless bricks, laid oh-so many years ago. We all work so hard. We deserve a time to relax.
Encircled with large windows and tons of natural light, our kitchen is a space designed for hosting and socializing. The peninsula invites you to partake with your cook and enjoy the sights, smells, and laughter. The dining area entreats you to take a seat, tune in, and connect with your loved ones. Take your time and look at the features of this space, from exposed bricks and beams to a novel set of custom barn doors that take the place of traditional cabinet doors. Don't miss our complimentary Keurig coffee and we invite you to help yourself to a beer, some wine, and a snack.
Outside there is a lovely fire pit with colorful chairs, and a wood-chopping station for those wanting a real farmhouse experience. There is also a nice gas grill to aid your cooking experience. Parking is ample with a private drive and multiple parking spaces.
Finally, we want to share one of our favorite aspects of this home - getting there. There is more than one way to approach the house, but nothing sets your mood better than winding around Beaucatcher Mountain from downtown. Enjoys those curvy roads as you see fit, but we suggest going slow, watching for wild turkeys and larger creatures, rolling down your windows and letting the soft, fragrant air wrap around you and transport you to a magical place. A place where you find comfort and peace. A place where you find your self. Welcome to the Turn House, your Asheville mountainside getaway.

We work in both Maryland and North Carolina, where most of our family resides, so we bought our Asheville home and love this place! We travel back and forth many times in the year. We love to hike, drink beer, and explore the ever-growing food scene in Asheville. It is an amazing, historic city full of character and unique people. It is a wonderful place to be!
Owner purchased this House in 2016

What makes this House unique
Guests will enjoy full access to the property including a private and secluded front porch for getting fresh air, side yard for gathering around our fire pit, and 'back slope' for taking in the stars. We have ample, off-street parking. The Kenilworth area is a historic hideaway in central Asheville, offering tranquil serenity only minutes from downtown and the city’s finest shopping, dining and entertainment. Nestled between Biltmore to the south and downtown to the north, Kenilworth has long been a prestigious community in Asheville. We respect the quality of life this quiet, serene community offers and kindly request our guests keep outdoor noise to a minimum and mind the quiet-hours ordinance. We share our mountainside with bears. We take measures to reduce bear visits by concealing and protecting our trash in a shed. The shed has a couple locks on it, and a convenient pneumatic lid to help with use. Good practices to reduce a bear visitor would be -- Please don't leave food, or other waste, outside or on the grill that might attract the bears, and please keep the bear-shed locked with the trash securely inside the bins.

Excellent home in Asheville!
Loved this restored farmhouse! The perfect place to come back to after a day of shopping or massage or sight seeing - or an evening of fantastic food, wine and music!
The house was very clean and well appointed. There was a linen closet with extra towels or sheets if we needed them. The kitchen was clean and tidy with a coffee maker and some condiments. We did not cook but just had snacks after being out on the town all day.
We drove back and forth during the day but then took Uber or Lift at night. Both options are super easy, fast and inexpensive. I can't remember how far the house is from the center but it wasn't more than 5-7 minutes (I think).
Emerson was very helpful and communicative. He promptly answered my questions and sent me a list of restaurant recommendations. He was also available by text during our stay.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again - in fact, I plan to book it this summer!
So great to have you! Thank you SO much for the wonderful review. You are so kind. Glad you all had a great time! Come back anytime!!
Spent a weekend in the house with some friends after a camping trip and found the house to be the perfect place to relax but still be close enough to conveniently enjoy all Asheville has to offer. The property owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a charming and convenient location for their Asheville stay.
Beautiful house with great proximity to downtown
We had a wonderful weekend at the Restored Farmhouse!! Great communication from the owners made our stay a breeze from check-in to check-out. Everything in the house is up-to-date and top quality. The beds were super comfortable, too!
Fun little farm house, we would stay there again
The house is very nice and worked great for a family of four. The house is in a great location to explore Asheville. The owners were very easy to work with. It would have been nice to have another baking sheet and frying pan in the kitchen, but we made it work. I would stay at the house again.
We had a wonderful time! The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We were right in town and used Lyft which was almost as cheap as paying for parking. I cant wait to come back for another visit!
Fantastic Birthday weekend
I rented this house for my wife’s 30th birthday and we had a blast. There were 3 couples that all were very comfortable. The owners did an amazing job of ensuring that we had all that we needed, they even left beer in the frig and wine in the cabinet. My wife will remember this birthday for many years to come!!
