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.

Truly wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Sherry and her husband are one of a kind! My husband read the apartment manual and we learned that her husband designed the units and she is an art creative! You can see the beauty of their hearts through the craftsmanship and design of the home. The views were phonemal and it was truly a wonderful escape from the busyness of life. Thank you for sharing your gifts, talents, and home with us.

Close to downtown, large space for a 1 bedroom

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at the Masters' place! Huge space for a 1 bedroom and perfect for 2 people. The Masters' were very good at communicating and I appreciate the house guide they left. Convenient distance to downtown, the GPI or Biltmore. The high end hotels are great for a night of luxury, but after that come visit the Masters! We hope to come back someday!

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this two level apartment in Asheville. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped with linen, toiletries, etc... It was in a quiet wooded section, with a view of the mountains. Our host, Sherry, was very responsive and ready to help with any questions we may have had. The only concern we had was that the apartment is in a home on the side of a mountain, and driving up hill on some narrow roads, especially at night, was a bit of a concern to us. However, in Asheville, which is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mts., and where many homes are built on the side of a mountain, it all becomes part of the experience.

Owner's Response: Deborah, thank you for your review. We are glad you were comfortable in the apartment! Your comment on the road was accurate, it is narrow - fortunately their is light traffic on our street and streets surrounding us. It does give guests a taste of the mountains right near downtown :) Best wishes, Sherry and Mark

Perfect couples retreat

  • 5 of 5

As frequent visitors to Asheville, we were looking for a place that felt like we were in the mountains and still convenient to downtown. This rental was perfect. The views were awesome and the unit was flawless. It had everything my husband and I consider important - a spacious living area to relax in, a modern well- equipped kitchen, a very comfortable bed with nice linens, a spacious bathroom with fluffy towels, large TV's in both the living area and bedroom, and strong internet. It was beautifully decorated and felt like a home one could live in. We had a great weekend there and are looking forward to our next visit. The owners were easy to work with and provided detailed information and accurate directions to the property. There is another unit nearly identical to this one next door which would be perfect for two couples travelling together. As other reviews have mentioned, the road to the unit is narrow and curvy, quite normal for a city in the mountains, but It's only five minutes from downtown! Just stay here. You will be happy you did.

Great apartment - Great view!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Master's apartment. It was very clean, comfortable and what a view... They thought of everything that we might need, (the condiments in the fridge were an extra nice - and unusual - touch). The recommendations of what to do and where to eat were also much appreciated. The parking was trickier than expected but we got used to it. We will definitely be back.

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.
