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 friendly private community and 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.

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.

The Fall leaves were breathtakingly beautiful. Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Wild Mountain Air is a very comfortable and lovely home. The mountains were glowing with beautiful fall colors. We truly enjoyed our one-week stay. We started our day with hot coffee, enjoying the cool morning weather out on the patio. The surrounding landscape was breathtaking. We would highly recommend Wild Mountain Air to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle. It was such a pleasure meeting the owner Leah Baker and we were thrilled to visit her creative art studio.

Magnificent Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a peaceful retreat close to The Cove to share with our life-long friends from Seattle...

and we found it at Wild Mountain Air. Abundant windows, lovely views, décor that is creative and intriguing (shades of Frank Lloyd Wright) and the master shower an escape - all by itself - like bathing in a wilderness waterfall...but with hot water :) Everything was comfy, cozy, welcoming and friendly. And the Stoney Knob Cafe in Weaverville is a legendary discovery! Thank you Leah, for opening your home to wayfarin' strangers.

Wonderful in every aspect!

  • 5 of 5

The location is great! The home is perfect, the design,style and decor are wonderful. Morning coffee looking out over fields and at mountains absolutely perfect. The morning comes alive with the sounds of birds and the smell of clean mountain air. My wife and I and two fur kids enjoyed this home immensely. We unfortunately only had 3 nights in Wild Mountain Air and will definitely be back here when we return to the area. We came to the area to visit Biltmore and the location was really a short trip to Asheville/Biltmore. I would recommend the Twisted Laurel in Weaverville to eat, food and service are excellent. This place is only 10 minutes away. We did Biltmore for 2 days, house tour day 1, property day 2.

Leah has created a great place to stay, feels like home when you are there. She is a text or phone call away to help. We tend to stay at homes or bed and breakfasts when we travel, we have been very fortunate to have never been let down by our choices. Leah's house is great and reaffirms why we love vacationing in this manner.

Excellent place to stay!
