Asheville is a sophisticated small city in a mountain valley in the southeastern United States. It's a very popular and well known tourist area. The city is very walkable with shops, galleries, and restaurants on every corner. Asheville is know for its foodie culture, including lots of vegetarian choices. The varied nightlife scene and many cultural activities and festivals will keep you busy if you like. The area is also known for its many artists and crafts people. Just south of downtown is the Biltmore House; the largest private residence in the USA. The house and its thousands of acres are open to the public. The Blue Ridge parkway also passes through the area. This is an incredibly scenic drive through the national forests in the area, with world class views, and many interesting stops along the way for hiking, picnicking, looking at waterfalls, or frolicking in the cool mountain streams.
Endless opportunities abound for rafting, rock climbing, and backwoods adventures if outdoors is your thing. There are two ski resorts, each about one hour from Stardust Cottage. Golf is also popular in the area. You can choose to be in the middle of the action, and then out in the middle of nowhere 15 min later!
Closer to Stardust cottage are several organic farms, including flowers and a nationally known herb farm. Potters and crafts people live tucked in their beautiful corner of Sandymush Valley.
Don't let our long backwoods private gravel drive fool you... a beautiful modern well appointed cottage awaits at the end!
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Hi! I love meeting new people and trying new things- especially food and travel. I rehab houses, and enjoy the challenge of real estate investing. I've lived in the Asheville area since my college years, have a great husband and two kids. Western North Carolina is very community-minded and I like to get involved in helping make our wonderful place to live even better. Our family enjoys hiking the trails and cooling off in the streams in the summer, and then catching the incredible vistas on the way home.
Why the Owner Chose Asheville: We bought this place as our primary residence and lived here for ten years. We loved it from the minute we saw it and still do! Big Sandymush Valley is best preserved farming valley in the southern Appalachians. Thousands of acres of conservation lands are adjacent to the property, organic farms are abundant here.
We moved in to town due to the kids schools, and have just spent several months refreshing everything and making it perfect for guests!
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house is private and relaxing in a gorgeous natural setting.
It's modern and comfortable, with soft sheets and down comforters
You can get to Asheville for city fun, but no need to!
