Black Mountain house description

* The Owl's Nest was featured on ABC travel show Sweet Retreats in May of 2013, and was the only cabin property selected out of tens of thousands of vacation rentals! This artistically designed treehouse is full of carefully planned details from handcrafted sinks, honed granite counters throughout and reclaimed antique Black Walnut floors and fireplace mantle. The Village of Cheshire has 9 properties available, cabins, a family home and The Owl's Nest treehouse, all conveniently located 1 mile off HWY 40, exit 64 along HWY 9 South. We are located just 11 miles from downtown Asheville; 20 miles from the Asheville Airport; 2 hours west of the Charlotte Airport. The Biltmore House, Grove Park Spa, Chimney Rock, and Lake Lure are all just a short drive away.

Built in 2008, this home has Pottery Barn furnishings throughout, hypoallergenic bedding and modern luxuries including flat screen, high def TVs, porcelain tub, and WiFi, fully stocked kitchen so you can have a romantic dinner in front of the wood burning fireplace. The Village Center is a short walk away from the Village’s Center's Morning Glory Cafe (3 meals/day) and Artisan Market.

The Morning Glory Cafe and The Blackbird Tavern offer a selection of local, domestic and foreign beers and wines, in addition to menus filled with cuisine inspired by local, fresh vegetables and organic meats, and daily fresh pastries (Artisan Market and Blackbird Tavern).

Each cabin has a loft accessible by library ladder. This high space is the perfect spot to catch a glimpse of local birds: wrens, hummingbirds, blue jays, red cardinals, hoot owls, screech owls, and chickadees. Wildlife abounds here year round, providing a wealth of enjoyment for nature lovers. ?Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, kayaking, and rafting and horseback riding are popular activities in the area.




Keywords: This artistically designed vertical home is a modern treehouse with custom designed finishes and a 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains and The Seven Sisters Range. You will be walking distance from the Village Center with The Artisan Gourmet Market, Coffee, Wine Bar, & Cafe, Morning Glory Cafe, The Blackbird Tavern, and just 2 miles from downtown Black Mountain.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1997

                          About the owner: I grew up on the land where my cabin is as a boy, and built the cabin last year. I'm a fireman/medic that decided to develop my family land in 1997 after studying new urbanism at Oxford in England. People seem to like to be in a place where you can walk to everything that you need- grocery store, restaurant, tavern, hair salon, trails, fields to walk your dog, etc. So I built my cabin where everything is easy to walk to and yet you have a secluded little slice of nature surrounding your cabin allowing you to relax and enjoy your tranquil surroundings. I love the view of Camp Branch Creek with the sound of babbling water and birds singing invites you to kick back and enjoy the elements that I have thoughtfully put together to create this very special place called Cheshire after my grandmother's family name.
