                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: I am New Orleans transplant who was looking for a similar creative energy in a small-ish mountain town where the weather is pretty moderate year round. Amazing folks here in Asheville, great place to raise a kid, or just be who you are. Have traveled the world, still have a lot more to see, and love meeting people with a sense of adventure in whatever realm that finds fruition. My partner has been a 'native' of Asheville for almost 10 years, but a resident of the world for so much longer and an ingenious muse to all who know him. We are this year's reigning King & Queen of the Asheville Mardi Gras. Our home is next door and we are happy to be of guidance or assistance to our guests as they want us to be.

                          Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                          Local neighborhood but less than 2 miles to downtown! Area is unique and funky with coffee shops, open artist studios, restaurants, bars and boutiques, yet has a quiet neighborhood feel.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                          Total renovation of the cottage,with brightly colored walls, plenty of light, gorgeous cherry, slate and hardwood floors. The bedroom is a custom-built platform bed (nearly King sized with 4' heavy duty foam topped with 3' quality memory foam), thick insulation in the walls and custom sconce lighting make this perfect for cozying down with a good book or snuggling up in someone's arms. Fully equipped kitchen with full sized antique farm sink, full sized stove and eating nook allow you the option of making a home-cooked meal. The patio area outside is perfect for enjoying the herb garden, watching the birds and relaxing with a cup of coffee or nice glass of wine.
