Black Mountain house description

Relax, rewind and rejuvenate in newly remolded cottage nestled in the quiet valley of Black Mountain within minutes of city life in Asheville. Lounge on the deck while sipping your morning tea or coffee to the sounds of nature. Stroll along Cherry Street made famous in Southern Living Magazine in historic downtown Black Mountain. Enjoy lunch at a small cafe taking time to shop at the local antique and boutique shops. Spend the afternoon curling with your favorite novel or watching an old movie or favorite sport on TV. Prepare an enjoyable meal in the fully stocked kitchen. Listen to music while preparation of your favorite meal or allow the grill master to show off his culinary talents on the charcoal grill. End the perfect day dreaming of your next adventure in the mountains.

                              Black Mountain is located in the Western North Carolina Mountains within an easy 15-20 minutes drive of the Blue Ridge Parkway, downtown Asheville, Biltmore House and Grove Park Inn to the west. Asheville's eclectic downtown serves as a cultural center for Western North Carolina. Hiking, biking, golfing, shopping, sight seeing, and scenic drives are only a few of the many activities.

                              Golf: There are almost 100 golf courses in our area. Come enjoy some of the best golf in the country. Cool mountain breezes and all the mulligans you want!

                              Ski: We have two ski slopes within an hour's drive of the cottage.

                              Wondering: There's no better place to wonder than in downtown Black Mountain. You can simple park your car and enjoy the quaint village.

                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About the owner: CeCe Hipps and Ron Mashburn are the owners and business partners.

                              Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain:
                              The cottage is the childhood home of CeCe's. As a child she ran through the woods and spent many hours playing on the one acre home place. We spend the better part of two years completely updating the cottage and converting it into a relaxing vacation home.
