Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Former Asheville residents now living in Aiken County, SC, right outside Augusta, GA. We love the mountains (kayaks, mountain bikes, rafting, hikes to summits) and the vibrant soul of Asheville's community.

Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
After living a few blocks away, I fell in love with this area and home. My wife and I then proceeded to spend 1-1/2 years renovating the property. Although we no longer work or live in the area, we couldn't bear to part with our labor of love, and after enjoying it as our own vacation home, we now offer it as a vacation rental.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love: the deep porch, huge hardwood trees, kind neighbors, location near downtown, winter view to mountain and Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa, the hardwood floors and custom antiques-turned-cabinets in the kitchen, and it's worth mentioning the location again!
