Overview

About the property

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

This triplex house has everything you need and suits the vacationer or business traveler. The house clings onto the side of the 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.

We designed and built the multi-family house in 1993, and the main unit served as our home for several years. This particular 1 bedroom unit is best suited for a couple or small family with a king bed and large sectional sofa for extra sleeping. It is equipped with comfortable furnishings and has a small patio to enjoy the mountain views.

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 1993

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Convenience to interstate, downtown, and Biltmore Village. Surrounded by nature and mountain views. This property offers open space to relax and unwind.

Terrific!

  • 4 of 5

Sherry was lovely. The setting felt private in nature yet just 10 or 15 min. To downtown Asheville. Contemporary open concept so best for a couple or single.

Beautiful, Tranquil, Clean Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have rented with HomeAway all over the world and this condo was one of our favourites. First of all, Sherry, the owner was quick with any of our inquiries. The condo is really stunning. Lots of seating in the living room. The bed was very comfortable and the ensuite bathroom was spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped. A special note for the bath towels. Nice quality and colours. A very comprehensive binder of all needed information for a fun time in Asheville was sitting on the counter. The location of this condo was a five minute drive to downtown, very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and a few minutes from a supermarket. We stayed 4 nights and after a long day ,we were happy to nestle in and cook our dinners.

Charming 1 Bedroom apartment close to all of Asheville's amenities

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well equipped apartment near to local amenities and a short drive ($6 uber rider) to downtown Asheville. Had a fantastic weekend here.

The owners were very proactive in providing information on local restaurants, walks and activities and quick to respond to any questions.

My only disappointment was not knowing that the apartment is part of a building with two other apartments, one upstairs and one on the same level. The sound installation between units especially with wooden floors was not ideal and was annoying during the night.

Owner's Response: Rupert, Thank you for your review. We apologize for the sound from the unit above. We've tried to cover the all the floor surfaces with rugs, but some areas are bare hardwood in the spaces between rooms. - I know they were in town for a wedding so perhaps came in late with dress shoes on. After your comment I feel determined to strongly suggest guests remove shoes at the door. It sounds like you had a good time in Asheville. Thank you for staying with us and for taking time to give a review! Best wishes, Sherry

Lovely, well-appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It is unique, spacious and very comfortable. We really appreciated the personal touches such as the beautiful art adorning the space. A lovely, relaxing place to go home to at the end of a busy day in the great city of Asheville, and the surrounding area. We would be delighted to stay here again and highly recommend it. Sherry was a delight to deal with - very prompt to respond to all enquiries.

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 and the art scene is nationally known. Asheville will indeed make a lasting impression.
