Asheville house description

This cozy 1905 Carriage House was renovated over the last 20 years to function as a modern home while retaining historic integrity and charm (the main house burned down in the 70's). This was my architectural design studio while I lived in the cottage next door, during the construction of my new home on the front part of the property about 6 years ago (featured in Fall 2010 Fine Homebuilding magazine).
Accessed by a quiet old carriage alley, within 10 min walk of our vibrant downtown and UNCA, and convenient to the I240, in the middle of a historic neighborhood of lovingly restored homes and B&B's.
Wood floors and windows throughout, snug bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower, tastefully furnished, W/D, fully equipped kitchen (incl utensils, pots/pans, gas cooktop, microwave, etc), but no DW, two sets of linens, comforters, etc.,CATV, wireless internet, and all utilities included.
The House is on two levels, with the large master bedroom on the lower level (unfinished storage bay is adjacent), with a door to the covered stone patio. Other rooms are upstairs, spilling out to a large elevated deck tucked under a mature tree canopy, surrounded by lush landscaping.
The Carriage House is adjacent to my 1940 rental cottage.
30 day minimum, unless gaps between reservations allow shorter stay.
Also within 10 min walk to Wholefoods grocery, several neighborhood restaurants, parks, a historic cemetery, YMCA, etc. Perfect place to live while relocating.
