About the property

Open floor plan, deck & covered porch, 2 Large Bedrooms, 3 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 of a natural green screen to filter the sun and offer a little seclusion. The soothing magic of the cool Blue Ridge mountain air can be felt here.

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

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 and a casual barefoot style. The passive solar design of the house utilizes the cool night air, ceiling fans in combination with concrete floors to keep the house nice and cool. Portable AC units add an extra coolness to keep everyone chilled during summer.

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 Woolworth Walk in Asheville or check out Luminosa Lighting via . Yes, a shameless plug!

Why Leah Baker chose Asheville Area

My sister and I have owned this land since 1982 and finally in 2006 it was time to come back east.

What makes this house unique

Weaverville is a sweet little town just far enough away from Asheville to get away from the crowd but not so far to be inconvenient. Last few years some very good restaurants have opened and offer some great local choices. The Glass Onion on Main Street, a fantastic bakery (Well Bred), a quiet internet cafe (All Good Coffee), Blue Mountain Pizza (usually has live music), and The Twisted Laurel to name a few. Miya Gallery/Store and Mangum Pottery showcase beautiful locally made art and craft work. You don't have to go back in to Asheville to have a night out. The house sits close to the parkway, 10 minutes from downtown Weaverville and 20 minutes from downtown Asheville.

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

Amazing place! I would give it 10 stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a month in April. We fell in love with the house and the area so much that we started looking into places nearby that we might buy! The setting could not be more lovely. Beautiful mountains in the background, lush green valleys in the foreground. And the house is perfect. Big open floor plan on the main floor with kitchen, dining and living room. Huge windows that look out to the mountains. One large bedroom on the first floor and an equally big bedroom on the second floor. All have big windows to see the beautiful scenery. And, Leah could not have been nicer or more helpful with anything we needed. Couldn't ask for a better rental in the Asheville/Weaverville area!!

Wonderful, Excellent, Beautiful, Wonderous, Relaxing, and More

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Wild Mountain Air House and will be back as soon as we can. The house was so wonderfully decorated with natural woods, rugs, views. The kitchen was well equipped...we cooked a great meal one night. The eateries in Weaverville are great. Be sure to visit the Stoney Knob and the coffee shop downtown. There was so much room in the house. You did not feel like you were cramped into a small space. This house sits up on a hill with a small country road winding around to it. Birds sing all day long. We walked, dined, rested, and refreshed out spirits. I would recommend this place to anyone needing respite.

Mountain Retreat for visit to Asheville

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great mountain get-a-way for our trip to Asheville over New Years. Views of the mountain were just what we were looking for and it was very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway to get to a few hikes. Portions of the Parkway were closed for the winter, but we were still able to find a portion of the Mountain to Sea Trail to enjoy with our dog. It takes about 20-25 mins to get to downtown Asheville so it was very easy to get down there for meals, exploring Asheville, and to the Biltmore. We also enjoyed finding a local pizza place nearby on our first night that we probably could have eaten each night!

The home was very clean and comfortable. Bed was cozy and the shower room felt luxurious! I would definitely recommend this home if you are traveling to the area.
