Asheville house description

This is your destination for convenience and modern day accommodations. Interested in seeing more of Asheville? Yes, there are the mountains , the Biltmore and the hip downtown scene , but this spot is near it all PLUS just a short distance to the French Broad River park and Carrier Park. At the park, fish along the 3rd oldest river in the world or kayak. Bike or walk the greenway trail that continues all the way to Hominy Creek Park. Let the kids enjoy Carrier Park's massive playground. Guests are welcome to visit the WNC Arboretum for free with our membership pass during your stay.

Grab a beer at the notable Wedge Brewery, just on the other side of the river. And be sure to get some food at The Junction, White Duck Taco, Clingman Cafe or the President's favorite, 12 Bones Smokehouse all very near the property.

Many working art studios and galleries are also in this area named the River Arts District. Pink Dog Gallery, The Flood Gallery, Clay Space, The Asheville Glass Center and welcome guests to tour.

When we're visiting Asheville and the weather is nice, we spend a lot of time outside, on any one of the 3 porches that overlook the backyard.

Guests can build a campfire in the backyard next to the creek. The home was designed for family and guests to visit with includes plenty of private space as well as an open kitchen and living area.

Relax in the many options for outdoor seating, with great backyard views. This home is perfect for families or friends to visit Asheville, and be near to cool local spots like the park, river and River Arts District scene.

It is a spacious 3 Bedroom home with 2 queen beds, one full mattress futon bed and 2.5 baths . Two bedrooms have a large flat screen, with satellite channels. The home’s 3 level floor plan and large outdoor decks on each level, give guests the feeling of a modern day tree house when dining al fresco amongst numerous large trees surrounding this custom built home. The home has three separate stories, each accessible by stairs: the lower level has the master bedroom and master bath; ground level or first level has the kitchen; living area and a half bath; upstairs has 2nd bedroom; full bath and office with tv and futon.

Newly constructed in 2012, it is a healthy built, energy efficient home, with stainless steel appliances, front loading washer and dryer, walk-in shower and bathtub, hardwood floors, luxurious carpets, colorful rugs, beautiful granite counter tops, with abundant natural sunlight. The home has central air and heat, with a separate thermostat on each floor.

The home sits on a gently sloping hill, surrounded by trees, and adjoins a stream and natural meadows.

36 Moore Ave is a fantastic west Asheville location. The French Broad River flows through Carrier Park just blocks away, which joins the French Broad River Park by way of an extensive greenway trail. Here you can enjoy walking, running or riding a bike. Carrier Park has a large playground, a picnic area and also is a great spot to put a kayak or canoe in the water. If you brought your dog, the French River Park has a dog play pin area. The home offers two hybrid bicycles, as well as two helmets for you to ride around the area. On warm days, the French Broad River is great for a swim and to enjoy a float with inner tubs provided at the house.

In addition to the parks, this location is 1 mile from the River Arts District, Asheville’s premier gallery and working artists’ studios area. Historically a warehouse and railroad yard district, now the River Arts District is to home of some of the best artists in the region and country.

Some of the best barbeque in the region can be found at 12 Bones. Have a well-crafted beer at the Wedge Brewery, and bask in the afternoon sun with many locals, while watching the train cars slowly roll by.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: Welcome to our Asheville home. We purchased this home in January 2012 after owning a town home in Black Mountain for 2 years. We are both native floridians, visiting Asheville /Hendersonville for summer camps and family vacations when we were children. Asheville was our summer getaway of choice. We raised our children in So. Florida and moved to Carrboro, NC (near Chapel Hill) in 1999, 13 years ago.

                  Why Asheville:
                  While many of our neighbors and friends flock to the coast, Asheville continued to be a favorite getaway. At this time we are moving from Carrboro to a downtown Durham loft as our primary residence. I would not be surprised if Asheville turned out to be our primary residence in the future. Why be in the Triangle, when you can be in the mountains. We bought our current digs in West Asheville about a year ago. Most of our days in Asheville begin with a walk to the French Broad River Park. Just a block away from the house, how could you not. One of the many things in Asheville I never get tired of. We love going to art galleries, which there are plenty of here, finding too much we love and cherish, ending up purchasing a few. Art is undoubtedly worth it when you can enjoy it on a daily basis.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Hiking and biking at Biltmore, the NC Arboretum and along the Blue Ridge Parkway, all a short drive are some of our favorite activities. Lunch at the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway is spectacular. It is just about a 30 minute drive from the house. We went there as children, we went there when our children were at camp in Hendersonville, continue to have lunch there periodically and I anticipate many more lunches there, looking forward. The food is definitely good and the view while dining is priceless. Kayaking and tubing on the French Broad are also activities, we just can't get tired of. Downtown, the River Arts district, and West Asheville are normal outings, after we catch our breath from whatever preceded that particular day. Of course sitting high up in the trees on one the decks in the back of our home over looking the meadow and creek with a bottle of wine is fine way to end the day. Enjoy our home, enjoy Asheville and surrounding areas, it will grow on you for sure, sorry or pleased to tell you. You never know, it could end up your primary residence also. thank you, Susan and Larry Powell
