Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

(our Cancellation Policy is at the end of these paragraphs)

Welcome to our historic, modernized 1000 sq. ft. Biltmore Loft with a gourmet kitchen and electric fireplace on a bustling corner, smack-dab in the heartbeat of Downtown with some of the best restaurants, galleries, music venues, theaters, and shops just steps from your door (our Cancellation Policy is at the end of this Overview). How about your own private street entrance with 39 (39 Biltmore Ave) artistically embedded in the sculptured metal gate with a Keypad keyless door access - easy and safe - sleeps 2-4 comfortably (small additional fee for over 2 people)! A new 400+ Biltmore Ave. Garage is right across the side street; Pack Square Park is on the top of the block; Mast General Store is 1/2 block; the Fine Arts Theater is across the street; the nationally regarded music venue, the Orange Peel, is 1 block; and the organic French Broad Co-op grocer is 1 block yonder. Our well insulated building has 16 inch brick walls, high ceilings, and high-end Kolby double-paned windows. We are smack in the middle of downtown so some street noise will be heard - this is downtown. If you choose, though, you may turn on our Sleep Sound machine and hear waterfalls, nature sounds and the like while you sleep. But we've heard only a few comments about the occasional noise. If you don't want to hear any street noises but only the muffled 'character sounds' of some walking on the old Heartwood pine floors above during business hours, then consider our 39 Biltmore Studio discussed below.

You'll be enamored with the earthy feel of the historic brick and heartwood pine in this Manhattan Style Loft (open bedroom design + separate area with Queen sized sofa bed). You'll find all the luxurious trappings including: high speed 16 mb download, wireless DSL internet connection; flat screen HDTV with Netflix movies and TV shows; wireless audio dock for the i-phone, i-pod, i-pad and music streaming with smart phones - 4S and earlier; 3-D Blu Ray Disc Player with a small library of movies; comfortable living room and bedroom suites and Queen sized pull-out Sofa Bed (small additional fee for over 2 people), both with gel memory foam mattresses & pillow top; stainless steel appliances; and granite kitchen counters.

You may also be interested in our cozy 39 Biltmore Studio in the same building for $170-$210/night + Holiday rates with high quality appliances, gel memory foam mattress in the bedroom, and a small patio inside the French Cut wooden fence - a parking space is included right outside the fence (www.HomeAway.com/3535643).

How about seating yourself in the maple umbrage of the beautiful patio of the Double D's Coffee & Dessert BUS next door, the awesome fire pitted patio of the Wicked Weed Restaurant and Brewery 1 block south, the singularly designed Pack Square Park starting alongside the obelisk at the top of the block, or the world class venue of the 500 seat Diana Wortham Theater 1 block up the street? We could say more but you'll just have to explore and experience the rest of the beauty and excitement on your own ...... Welcome to Downtown Asheville.... Welcome to the Biltmore Loft!

About Bernie Byrne

Sandy and Bernie Byrne are Iowa born via Coral Gables/Miami FL. Bernie grew up on a farm in northwest Iowa and Sandy in Iowa City, the home of the University of Iowa (Hawkeyes). Sandy has authored several books and has traveled the world lecturing & teaching Ultrasound of the Eye. She feels so fortunate to have helped so many people with unique eye problems. We are overjoyed to be in the Asheville area for 18 years now and have worked diligently to develop a true Green, Organic, and Sustainable community just 25 minutes north of Asheville called Mountain Meadows on Crooked Creek. Just recently we converted our Biltmore Loft in Downtown Asheville to a vacation rental. We want to use it often too so we loaded it up with the most comfortable and convenient furnishings and electronics to go along with all of the exciting energies in Downtown Asheville. Excellent health in all physical, mental, and spiritual ways has been our positive passion for a long time and we feel so privileged to enjoy our kids, Cherie, Nicole & Donnie along with our grand daughters Amanda, Maddie, & Tabitha. Please give us a call at 828 230-0755 so that we may answer any other questions you have.

Bernie Byrne purchased this condo in 1999

Why Bernie Byrne chose Asheville

Downtown was not yet hip when we decided to buy a building in Asheville in the year 1999. We thought, hey, wouldn't it be a creative, FUN time and investment to renovate an old building and be able to have a small apartment where we could stay sometimes? Though our farm was only 20 minutes north, we felt this downtown option would really be the lap of luxury (it is)! We were fortunate to find an old, 2 story corner building with an art studio and gallery on the main floor, an apartment above, and a dilapidated basement. There were dozens of coats of paint on both the brick walls and the old Heartwood Pine floors; the frontage was a 1940's aluminum; and the owners were relectant to sell. After friendly negotiations, and paying much more than we really thought it was worth (does that sound familiar?), we went to work redesigning and putting together a construction crew. This 18 inch brick walled, ugly and decrepit dinosaur circa 1885 building is transformed and now on the National Historic Register on a gem of a corner surrounded by thriving restaurants, shops, galleries, coffee houses, a parking garage, and the new a-loft Hotel (part of the international Starwood Hotel system). We feel so fortunate to be part of a bustling downtown that still retains its historic character and charm!

What makes this condo unique

We've said it all before and we'll say it again - you'll just LOVE being Downtown right in the middle of it all with kind and caring folks all around and exciting things all about! The character and simplicity of Heartwood Pine floors, high ceilings and brick walls, all enconsced in a 1000 SF Loft with tall windows and skylights.... is awesome. Next door you'll visit the Double D's Coffee & Dessert BUS; view the Fine Arts Theatre across the street where you will see artsy new independent movies; just a block away enjoy The Orange Peel, considered by Rolling Stone Magazine to be one of the best music venues in the nation; organic minded bodies will resonate with the French Broad Co-op 1 block south and the Farmer's Market down the street on Wednesday afternoon plus the City Market a few blocks away on Saturday mornings, in season; take a slow walk in the delightfully designed Pack Square Park up the street with its grassy areas and trees, water features, and its leisurely promenade - great for sitting, musing, and people watching; how about Broadway quality shows at Pack Square in the Diana Wortham Theatre just 1 block up the way?; a plethora of natural 'farm to table' restaurants are tantalizing; the original craft brewery in Asheville, Highland Brewery, was born in the basement environs of Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria right across the street; the Drum Circle, our primal beat, is our go-to on Friday nights - could we be so lucky?

Great loft right downtown!

  • 5 of 5

This loft was beautiful and exactly as described! It was right downtown so we walked to most of the places we wanted to go and the rest were just a short uber ride away! It took us about 10 minutes to get to the Biltmore Estate which was great! My husband and I were so comfortable and relaxed and just had the best time!

I don't think we could have found a better place to stay in Asheville. The location was perfect. The loft is roomy and up to date. It was stocked with everything we needed and had plenty of options for parking

Owner's Response: Kevin...thanks! Yes, we are substantively lower priced than downtown hotels with 3 times as much space and loads of convenience and accoutrements. Nice to have 2 City parking decks virtually across the street. We hope to host you again, soon...Bernie

Perfect Downtown Asheville Location

  • 5 of 5

The loft is as beautiful as the pictures indicate, with everything we needed provided. The space is warm and inviting and although on a main street, there was virtually no noise once inside. The location couldn't be better. You can just step out the door to the double decker bus and grab a great cup of coffee or walk across the street to the Chestnut Restaurant, which was fabulous! There are interesting shops all within walking distance and we only took our car out of the garage to drive to the Biltmore Estate. We had a wonderful 2 day visit and highly recommend the loft. It was just great!

Very nice property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Biltmore Loft is a great place to stay when visiting Asheville if you want to be in the city center. The loft is quite comfortable and has plenty of room. Nicely renovated building with hardwood floors, tall ceilings and brick walls give this place a great feel. Convenient to restaurants, a number of breweries, and coffee shops there is lots to do and explore within a few blocks.

Exceeded our expectations in every way. Clean, great quality loft in the heart of downtown.

Perfect Loft in the Heart of Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Bernie's loft to celebrate his 40th birthday. Asheville is one of our favorite cities to visit and I can say that we have found our new favorite place to stay. The location is perfect and the loft itself leaves you with the feeling that you are truly at home. We look forward to booking this loft again for our next trip back!
