About the property

Open floor plan, deck & covered porch, 2 Large Bedrooms, 2 beds, Sublime View

Only 20 minutes north of Asheville, this home is within a quiet, friendly, private community nestled at the base of a sunny south facing mountain. The view is pastoral and lovely. Large Tulip Poplar trees create just enough natural green screen in summer to filter the sun and offer a little seclusion. The soothing magic of wild mountain air can be felt here.

Open floor plan between kitchen and living room opens out onto a large sunny deck and wrap around covered porch. Comfortably furnished this home is a sanctuary ~ a quiet corner of the world to relax, rejuvenate.

Upstairs Master Bedroom: Sleep with the stars and moon through a sky filled wall of windows ~ a dreamy tree top view with a lots of light. Private balcony, cathedral ceilings, queen size bed, claw foot bathtub/shower and walk-in closet.

Main level Master Bedroom: Natural tones and blue hues for a soft nest like setting. A better room choice for those that need less light for sleeping! Queen size bed, master bathroom with walk-in double head shower room made for two!

Built in 2008 with love and green building principles. Intended to blend in with the lay of the land with a casual barefoot style.

We are 20 minutes north of Asheville, 10 minutes to downtown Weaverville, 5 minutes to Blue Ridge Parkway and trails

45 minutes will get you to Hotsprings and into a tub of natural hot spring water by the river.

Laundry room in basement available upon request.

Please take note the house is a spacious 3 levels with the upper 2 levels being offered in the description above.

The lower or basement level is private with separate entrance and a part time residence for the owner.

Please tell me a little about yourself and what brings you to the area.

About Leah Baker

Returned to my North Carolina roots in 2006 after living in San Francisco Bay area for 17 years.

I enjoy walking in the woods, riding my horse, traveling, being a crafty artisan ~ see my lamps at Artisans On Main in downtown Weaverville, Woolworth Walk in Asheville or on Luminosa or .

Leah Baker purchased this house in 2007

Why Leah Baker chose Weaverville

My sister and I purchased the property in 1982. Finally in 2006, it was time to come back to these mountains to build my nest and be close to family.

What makes this house unique

Weaverville is a sweet little town just far enough away from Asheville to escape the crowd but not so far as to be inconvenient. Some very good restaurants offer great local choices. The Glass Onion, the notorious Well Bred Bakery, All Good Coffee for the coffee connoisseur, Blue Mountain Pizza (usually has live music), and The Twisted Laurel to name a few.

Artisans On Main, my store featuring more than 40 local artist work and 4 working studios, Miya Gallery, and Mangum Pottery also showcase beautiful locally made art and craft work.

The house is 5 minutes from the parkway, 10 minutes from downtown Weaverville and 20 minutes from downtown Asheville.

Hiking, Zipline Adventures, Natural Hotsprings, and river tubing are all nearby.

Beautiful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

This is a tremendous home in a serene and unique location. It's also super clean and maintained beautifully (my husband, who cleans our house, asked, "I wonder how they deal with dust--I can't find dust anywhere.") We had friends in the area come over--they are quite the 'foodies'--and the kitchen was well outfitted for them to cook up a storm despite rainy evenings and days.

The layout of the place is open and generous, but also allows for privacy. The elegant first floor master is gorgeous enough that we gave up the 2nd floor bedroom's amazing loft ceiling and view to stay in the downstairs 'suite.' Also love the extra ½ bath. All baths are incredibly clean and well outfitted.

A special shout out to comfort--the beds, the chairs, the couch, the quality of the sheets (not patterned--bravo on that!), the towels. I don't think I've stayed in a home with a more comfy bed, which allowed for excellent sleep.

Our 2 pups settled right in. Great views to keep an eye on things, lovely places to walk, and the fenced side yard was a great option for them to go out when it rained.

Put all these things together, and this rental has a very special sense of welcome and calm. Thanks so much for a terrific property!

We will return.

Owner's Response: Wow! Rebecca, thanks for the lovely and thorough review on Wild Mountain Air house. The house is truly my pride, joy, art & design project with the goal of clean beyond reproach for my guest! You guys were the first guest after the glorious new bathroom redesign using river stone tile and grass mat wall paper to make if feel more like the garden shower I've dreamed of for years. Hope to see you in the future. Best, Leah

Perfect eclectic mountain house!

We loved the location, high ceilings, open floor plan, town of Weaverville - it was the perfect home! Leah was great and we felt right at home. It was pretty cold while we were there but the house stayed nice and cozy!

Beautiful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely lovely! We were able to bring our dog, and he had a wonderful time too. The house was absolutely gorgeous, and the views were breathtaking. It's a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is a great way to see the amazing mountain views and get some hiking in, and the town of Weaverville was quaint and charming with great restaurants. We had a great time during our stay and would highly recommend to anyone thinking about visiting the area.

Outstanding !

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious home with all the amenities, privacy and serenity one could hope for. My only recommendation is to replace double beds for either queen or king beds for taller guests!

Owner's Response: Thank you Judy! Both beds are Queen size and the one downstairs without a foot board can accommodate a very tall person. Your person must be Extra tall! :-)
