Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: I am a native of the region and once lived at this residence. My mother lived in this home until her mid 90's and she encouraged visitors walking by to sit with her on the front porch. The garden area in the backyard serves several families and carries on the tradition of vegetable gardening Helen's way. . She would be delighted to know that people stay in her home to celebrate birthdays, friendship, reunions, and even weddings. I carry on her Southern hospitality and attitude, hoping I make friends with each of my renters.

Why Black Mountain:
Growing up in Black Mountain makes me a proud native. I inherited this property from my mother and want to keep the house alive until I am in a position to return to it full time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location is perfect. Walking to shop or dine is so easy because downtown is just one block away and the recreation center is just a stroll to the lake and tennis courts. You can feel the energy of living in-town by sitting on the front porch or just move to the deck and drink in the mountain views. An expansive living room makes the house feel spacious and the eat in kitchen allows for a cook to be with guest and create a dinner together. An extra sink in the master bedroom is convenient and the dining room gives the house a more formal touch. Helen's location is the best offer because it makes getting around town easy.
