Overview

Kenilworth Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Our place on Beaucatcher is a modern, loft-style apartment that has everything you need and suits the vacationer or business traveler. This house clings onto the side of Beaucatcher mountain on a dead-end road giving one the feel of truly being in the mountains but only 1.5 miles from the center of downtown.

The apartment is open and airy and has a nice, new kitchen if you wish to cook, or just warm-up some left-overs from one of the many downtown eating establishments. We designed and built this multi-family house 20 years ago and the main unit served as our home for several years. This particular unit has been recently renovated and is equipped with brand new furnishings. We have just opened this unit up as vacation rental for folks to take advantage of it's proximity and architectural character.

We believe you will truly enjoy your 'repose' time dwelling in this clean, 'clutter free' apartment. It is bright and open, yet very comfortable, cozy and intimate. If you are looking for something sleek, unique, and close to everything, then this apartment will satisfy your vacation desires and help create a memorable stay here in scenic Asheville.

About Sherry Masters

I am a local architect and Asheville native and my wife Sherry is also a native of the area. Sherry has formerly worked as the manager/buyer for Grovewood Gallery for over 20-years and is heavily involved with promoting local arts and crafts. My firm concentrates primarily on healthcare design and other institutional work.

Sherry Masters purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Sherry Masters chose Asheville

We built this property as our primary home with rentals units as well and wanted to create a real sense of place on this challenging small, steep lot. The design is a simple vertical scheme with a relatively small footprint reflecting local vernacular yet the interiors are modern. This is an example of sustainable and sensitive design, yet ironically, this type of structure could not be built today given the current ordinance...

We have people who have lived in our units and still say 'we miss that place'. Architecture is about creating a setting for people, and if done well, should instill lasting memories.

Clean, fully equipped kitchen, lovely mountain view, close to town ( 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown), washer/dryer helpful... We really enjoyed our 2-week stay. The owner was delightful and provided many local resources.

Comfortable, beautiful, weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The location was fantastic; close enough to downtown to be convenient but in such a nice quiet neighborhood.

Sherry has thought of everything. There's even a binder with hikes, restaurants, and local attractions.

We hope to be able to stay here for our next Asheville trip.

Superb location and super comfortable lodgings

  • 5 of 5

Our first time using VRBO, previously have always stayed in 4 star or higher rates hotels but have to say we couldn't have been happier with our lodgings! My husband, our 2 kids (aged 11 and 8) and myself just loved the place. We really wanted something that felt like we were in the mountains yet was close enough to downtown and restaurants...well Sherry and Mark's place hit the spot exactly. Views were stunning and yet every convenience was a max of 10 mins away as was the BRP drive! Mark is an architect and designed the plane with such love and pride. The apartment is such an oasis of calm and has just the loveliest atmosphere. There was plenty of space for the four of us plus loads of towels, bed linen etc! Sherry and Mark couldn't have been more welcoming and kind to us. Genuinely kind, good people. There was many items in the fridge like coffee, water, ketchup plus clothes detergent! Sherry has a book with loads of information and lots of restaurant recommendations there too for your perusal. I can't express what a fabulous time we had in Asheville and I can honestly say our accommodation had a huge hand to play in forming that opinion. Thank you so so much Mark and Sherry. I really hope we will get back to Asheville again and if we do, we will definitely be booking with you guys.

So glad you enjoyed Asheville!

Great little vacation hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Even though we had a little problem finding the property at first( should have followed the directions given instead of gps lol!), once there we were so impressed with how nice the apartment was. The owners did a wonderful job making our stay do enjoyable. We would highly recommend this place to anyone. We loved the seclusion of it but could use uber or drive downtown in five minutes at the most.

We are glad you enjoyed your visit and invite you to come back anytime - you won't need the directions next time :) Thanks for mentioning Uber...we've found several recent guests have used Uber and it's a great option. best wishes!

Asheville is known for it's wonderful architecture, art galleries, great restaurants and hip shops. This eclectic city in the mountains is a perfect place to explore and to make as a home base while venturing the mountains of Western North Carolina. The city offers a variety of 'urban' activities while one can spend a lifetime exploring the Southern Appalachians. The highest peak, Mount Mitchell is less than an hours drive via the Blue Ridge Parkway. These lush mountains have attracted visitors for years including George Vanderbilt who set out to build his 'dream house' - The Biltmore, which is a must see for any first-time visitor to the area. One can spend days shopping downtown and eating at some of the best restaurants in the region which offer a wide variety of ethnic tastes. The many craft breweries have touted Asheville as 'Beer City' the past few years and now Asheville has one of only four Sake Brewery's in the entire country. Asheville will indeed make a lasting impression.
