Downtown Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4-9)

This amazing loft is located on Broadway Street, in the heart of downtown Asheville. You will literally be walking distance to all the best shopping, dining and entertainment Asheville has to offer. The Loft makes the ideal luxurious getaway for a romantic weekend or comfortable hangout for a family vacation.

The loft is located in a renovated 2 story historic building, but retains original features, like hardwood floors, doors & trim work, and high ceilings. It has been tastefully decorated with original artwork from around the world. There is a total of ***1500 square feet*** living area, with a spacious common area for living room and kitchen. There are 2 private bedrooms, each with a queen size bed and seperate entrances to the bathroom, and a private sink in the master bedroom. Each bedroom has its own LCD TV and DVD player with cable service.

The kitchen is recently remodeled with beautiful maple cabinetry, gorgeous granite counters, high-end SS appliances, and comes fully stocked with enough cookware, dishes, and utensils to cook for a large family. There is a full bath, full size front loading washer and dryer, and plenty of storage and closet space in each bedroom. Large groups will appreciate the tank-less water heater, that will deliver continuous hot water on demand. Everyone will get a hot shower, even while running the dishwasher and a load of laundry.

The large living room has plenty of comfortable seating, with a queen size futon and a queen size sleeper sofa, and several cushioned chairs. Do note that guests using the sleeping arrangements in the living area access the bathroom through one of the bedrooms. The home theatre system consists of a 42' LCD flat screen TV with cable service & Blue-ray/DVD/CD player. This is viewable from anywhere in the living area, and is controlled by a Harmony universal remote. This system can also wirelessly connect via bluetooth to your tablet or smartphone for streaming your personal music collection. There is also a set of outdoor speakers on the rooftop deck. Wireless internet and land-line telephone service is also included.

Unique to this Loft is the HUGE PRIVATE rooftop deck. This is a true full size deck, not a balcony. Access by spiral staircase, with amazing views of downtown to enjoy, and plenty of people watching. There is patio furniture, a large 11 foot umbrella and an electric grill for pleasant summer night cookouts.

Also available is FREE dedicated off-street parking for up to 2 cars. The parking lot is located on the back of the building on Carolina Lane.

About Dennis Briddell

We love the Asheville area and enjoy our visits immensely. We have twin toddlers and are always finding fun exciting things to do.

Dennis Briddell purchased this condo in 2000

Why Dennis Briddell chose Asheville

I decided to buy property in downtown Asheville because it was such a fun and relaxing to visit. I found myself missing it on the return trip 'home'. That alone was the deciding factor, and I have never regretted it.

What makes this condo unique

The convenience and comfort is difficult to find in downtown Asheville. I do consider this an excellent value.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I cant begin to tell you how much we enjoyed staying in the Loft and experiencing Asheville once again. Before we left, I said to Irene that I would like to come back here sometime next year, possibly in conjunction with a week stay at the John Campbell School for Crafts in western North Carolina. Or maybe we would just come back to Asheville and head to some places that we didnt have time to visit this time. In any case, we really liked The Loft--the accommodations, the decor, the convenience. I will contact you as soon as I know when we will be returning to Asheville.

Fun time in the heart of downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large party of girls stay and it was marvelous! The loft was so spacious and bright! And the rooftop deck was the perfect touch! Being able to walk out the door and be right downtown was exactly what we wanted and the loft provides just that! We are extremely happy with our stay and Dennis was very nice, and answered of we had to call with any questions. I would definitely recommend this place to stay and would stay again myself if I get the opportunity!
