Asheville apartment description

Looking for a conveniently located property in the Asheville area? Your search is over. My quaint apartment is located just minutes from Biltmore Estate, Biltmore Village, and downtown Asheville. The completely renovated downstairs apartment is located in a circa 1925 house at the end of a very short and quiet street with lots of trees. It's like being in the country with all of the advantages and conveniences of being in the middle of a city. I live upstairs and am available to provide information and directions but your privacy remains important and you will not be disturbed. There's a fully equipped kitchen with lots of amenities, Free Wi-Fi service, Cable TV and a DVD player. There are 2 private entrances. Enter the living room from a cozy little patio with a bistro table and two chairs. The other doorway exits from the bedroom to a very private porch that overlooks a large back yard which hosts a variety of trees, flowers and birds. Perfect for enjoying a cool drink or a glass of wine.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1983

                      About the owner: I am Janis and for many years, prior to my husband’s passing, it was our goal to own and operate a guest cottage in beautiful Asheville, NC. I am fulfilling this dream as he would have wanted. My love of nature and the beauty to be found in Asheville is a constant source of discovery for me and as my eyes are opened to the beauty that surrounds the cottage and apartment, it excites me to be able to offer visitors first hand information on the endless sites in store for them. I am here to make your trip a memorable one and to offer everything I can to help you achieve that. “Your Complete Satisfaction is my #1 Goal!” I've lived in 13 cities including Atlanta and Savannah, GA, Malibu, Marina del Rey, North Hollywood, CA and Orlando, FL for 18 years. Asheville is my favorite!!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                      I actually didn’t choose Asheville but rather married into it so to speak. My husband owned this home and lived in it for a short time off and on. When we married we moved to Orlando, FL and the house remained unoccupied except for an occasional renter. In 2000 we decided to completely restore the home and after renting it for a few years we decided to sell our home in Orlando and relocate full time to the property in Asheville, a move we never regretted.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      It's the last house on a very short dead end street with very few neighbors so no busy road. It has the country feel but is within the city limits and close to almost everything. Biltmore Village and The Biltmore Estates, Downtown Asheville, Antiquing, Great Restaurants, Cafe's, Bistros', Unique little shops, The Blue Ridge Parkway and more are about 3 to 8 minutes away.
