Weaverville house description

Natural light and a pastoral view framed by large south facing windows induce a relaxing feeling upon arrival . With ten foot ceilings the living room and kitchen share space and are warmed by deep chestnut wainscoting and warm earthy tones. Covered porch and sunny deck adds more lounging space rain or shine.

Upstairs the tree house bedroom is a bold bedroom, open to the sun and stars if you dare. Cathedral ceiling with wall of south facing windows, queen size bed, desk and sitting area, and floor space for stretching and yoga. Master bath with claw foot tub for a hot soak as well as shower, separate toilet room, and walk-in closet. The private balcony is great for late night star gazing.

Downstairs master bedroom has the feel of a more secluded soft place to sleep in and dream. Hues of blue, creamy whites, wool rug, natural wood. Walk-in shower room made for tall people!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I grew up in eastern North Carolina not far from the coast. Promptly after finishing college in Communication Design I moved to the San Francisco Bay area where I freelanced as a graphic designer for several years and experienced my first earthquake! Remember the 1989 World Series being played at Candlestick ball park in San Francisco??? Yep, that earthquake. Creativity has always been my calling so in 1991 it was a natural transition for me to be attracted to the Art of Massage and Bodywork Therapy. I was trained and certified at National Holistic Institute in Emeryville/Berkley, Ca. Leaving SF for the country hills of Marin County, the work provided a wonderful lifestyle change and became a portal for bringing many wonderful people and opportunities into my life. For 18 years Northern California was home. The beauty of the sea and land seeped into my soul. I could have stayed forever... Change happens in mysterious ways and though I loved the west coast, the east, specifically the Blue Ridge mountains began calling me back. In 2006 I decided to return to North Carolina to grow roots close to family and build my dream home on the land that had been waiting for me. So I did just that. So here I am, in the grandmother mountains of WNC. I have a Bodywork and Massage practice in Asheville and work seasonally in the Cashiers/Highlands area. This is what takes me away and allows me to share my home. Most recent creative endeavor is artisan lighting design ~ crafting luminous beauties for the home using handmade papers. You can see these at LuminosaLighting.com and/or visit my studio in downtown Weaverville.

                      Why the Owner Chose Weaverville:
                      The land where I chose to build had been held by my sister and I since 1982. As a young adult in the early 80's I would drive from eastern North Carolina to Asheville to visit my sister. She and I had the fortunate opportunity to buy 2.5 acres as part of a community based land partnership in 1983. Asheville was indeed a different place then. Downtown was abandon after 5pm. It was a sleepy town yet held a certain magical mysterious magnetism that ultimately lured me back from the west coast in 2006. Asheville came alive during those 30 years while I was away and the old abandon buildings downtown now house some of the best restaurants and artsy shops in all of North Carolina. Add the beautiful landscape, sweet mountain air, the cultural diversity and you get the picture of why I returned to WNC.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      I wanted to build a home that feels like a sanctuary. My first and perhaps last house building project, the endeavor called for a certain boldness and taking hold of the reins of my creative license. My vision was this: A home that blends into the environment and has an old soul quasi European feeling. An openness that feeds the creative mind. Large windows that frame the drinkable view. The interior a blend of regional influences close to my heart. Earthy elements and colors that reflect California style and Southwest tones. Blend a little world fusion, Morocco and India. Exterior called for updated Appalachia/Japanese farmhouse feel. Amazingly when woven together these styles created a home most people find comfortable, warm and seductive.
