Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 6 - maxmum)

Enjoy the wonderful sunsets. Relax with drinks on the main level deck with friends as sunset turns to dusk and the city lights begin to emerge. Point of View is a prime Asheville location for photographers who want a spectacular view of the city and its background mountains. The New York Times, Asheville Chamber of Commerce, and Southern Living Magazine have all photographed the awesome views. Bring your camera and see for yourself.

Spend your vacation in this 3106 SF, 3 BR, 4 BA finely appointed, private residence located on the side of Town Mountain, overlooking downtown Asheville and the Smoky Mountains. Less than one mile from the town centre, it has some of the most incredible city sunset views in the entire area. There are three decks from which you can enjoy the views. The master bedroom and bath are on the upper level with a deck off the bedroom for your own privacy. Off the main level living area is another deck for private sunbathing and elegant evening dinners. It comes equipped with table and chairs and a gas grill. On the lower level there is a main guest bedroom with full bath and a secondary bedroom with full bath. There is a lower level covered deck also equipped with tables and chairs. If it's raining, you can still enjoy the evening outside.

In front of the house near the main level entrance is a beautiful waterfall that will lull you into the vacation spirit with the peaceful sound of running water. It is shady with a table and chairs for the enjoyment of the sounds of nature...just pour the wine.

We are one minute from the center of Asheville, 5 minutes from the Grove Park Inn and 10 minutes from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate. This home is located in a very private setting on 1.25 acres and will comfortably accommodate up to six adults with ample parking. The home also features wireless Internet and a Sonos full home wireless stereo system.The driveway allows parking for up to 12 cars.

About Roy Borden

We discovered Asheville many years ago, but it was not until 2000 that we were able to move here. We were attracted because of its natural beauty, its vibrant culture and its people. We have loved living in our home, but now is the time for us to spend more time with our grandchildren and to travel. We know you will enjoy our home as we have.

Roy Borden purchased this house in 2000

Why Roy Borden chose Asheville

We moved to Asheville in 2000 and purchased our home after looking at many, many homes and condominiums. We wanted a private, quiet setting, surrounded by vegetation, close to the center of town with incredible views of downtown and the mountains. We found that special place in Point of View.

What makes this house unique

This property is very close to downtown. You can walk to town, but advise getting a taxi to come back up the hill. The views as we have stated before are absolutely incredible. You will be amazed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your home! The views are absolutely spectaculsr. The location is perfect. We felt completely at home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, way better than the Grove Park! Thank you!

Everything was as described. Great layout, close to town, and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience overall. Booking the property, relaxing on the balcony, preparing meals in the well stocked kitchen, and exploring downtown Asheville were all stress-free. Sensibilities Day Spa and fabulous meals at great local restaurants ensured our laid back vacation was also decadent. If you want a property that allows for alone and bond-building time in a beautiful setting, this is it!

Great house with an amazing view of city and mountains

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all! In addition to the amazing view it's close to everything. The waterfall will put you to sleep. Very peaceful! We saw lots of wildlife too. Early one morning we saw a fox in the backyard. That evening we saw a bear. My daughter was able to get a video of the bear in the backyard. He walked thru but didn't stay. The house is very well decorated & has everything!! Will definitely rent this house again when we visit Asheville.

Breath Taking View

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic. It easily accommodated our group of six. The inside had every amenity you could think of. The artwork throughout, and the sculptures on the grounds were a sight to behold. I would recommend this if you truly want a great experience.

Home with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this home when our daughter got married in Asheville in June. It is clean, well cared for, supplied with nice appliances and furniture, and is nicely laid out. Lots of bathrooms! The driveway is too steep as your reach the address, but it's a circular drive and you can access it more comfortably from it's side entrance on a different street. The view from all 3 levels is wonderful, and the garden is very nice! We all enjoyed sitting on the main floor balcony, watching the sun set and stars come out over Asheville! I opened the windows in the kitchen and listened to the birds and the sound of the fountain as I prepared our lunches. I would highly recommend this property!

Top notch accommodations and views!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property. Beautiful home with spectacular views of the Asheville skyline. Less than 5 minute drive from your perch above the city to downtown. We are all lucky that Roy and Pat offer up their home for us all to experience. Great amenities, perhaps most enjoyable was the huge deck. Point of View perfect for a weekend get away with friends and/or family. Great customer service; we were well taken care of. Thanks again to Roy and Pat; we hope to return to Point of View for years to come.

This house was even better than the pictures suggest. It is well-appointed with just about anything you might need or want to simply enjoy what we wanted most--family time where everyone feels comfortable. We celebrated my husband's 60 th birthday and I can say this was the perfect home to do so. The owner was extremely easy to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone!
