Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautifully maintained Victorian home that has been in our family for over 30 years. Even though it is 150 years old, it has all the modern conveniences. In every room, you will be quite comfortable with plenty of room to spread out if you wish. The flooring, ceilings and wainscoting are showcased in lovely heart pine.

The gazebo-style front porch beckons you to relax with a drink, a book, or games from sunrise to sunset. You will delight in a yard of native wildflowers, a Koi pond waterfall, and gorgeous Dogwoods. The peaceful setting will make your stay even more enjoyable.

Our home is a convenient stroll to Main Street for shopping, antiquing, a cup of coffee, an old-fashioned soda, or a delicious meal. Meander through the quaint neighborhoods or enjoy a brisk run through the pine tree-lined streets. There is something for everyone.

Our housekeeper charges $125.00 for cleaning. This is left in cash on the kitchen table. This is not included in your quote.

Keywords: Quaint 150-year-old Victorian home nestled in the heart of Saluda, NC.

About Karla T. Ward

We have a deep family history rooted in Saluda. My husband grew up there and my parents used this home as a summer getaway. My husband and I now own the home. We live in Texas, but travel to the mountains several times a year maintaining our home and yard.I have a Maltese who fly with me and spend time in Saluda. I always have a warm heart the entire time I am there.

Karla T. Ward purchased this house in 1979

Why Karla T. Ward chose Asheville Area

This will be our retirement home one day. Until then, we would love to have special people enjoying it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

I have traveled to Europe several times. Saluda reminds me of the quaint European towns in Germany. To this day there is still not one franchise business in downtown Saluda. You can't get more Americana than that!

Delightful mountain home filled with character!

  • 5 of 5

Our few days in Saluda at this lovely home were too short! We enjoyed our stay immensely and look forward to returning one day when our busy schedules allow! The house is filled with character and even though it is an older historic home, it has all of the modern conveniences anyone would need! The front porch was our absolute favorite place and we spent hours out there solving the world's problems!

Favorite Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house twice, and hands down, it is the best vacation home we have stayed in Saluda. You can not beat the perfect combination of beauty and location. This was our first time staying during the winter months and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Downtown Saluda is just steps away and we walked everywhere. There are several different places to eat downtown and the locals are very welcoming. The house was in great condition and has all the modern conveniences you could ask for. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a short or long get away.

Awesome Historic Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply beautiful and well maintained. It is decorated with lots of antiques and wonderful furniture. All beds are extremely comfortable! We loved the two fireplaces and the porches. The yard is beautiful and there is lots of privacy......but close enough to walk into town. There were lots of extras like soap, toiletry items, paper towels, tide, spices, and much more. The water pressure was great. the kitchen was well stocked! We cooked most meals there. The house is very clean too!! Karla is awesome to work with. She's very thorough and responds very quickly. We had a blast!😃😃👍👍
