Property description

The cottage on parkway loop is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just one mile from the blue ridge parkway and ten minutes from downtown asheville. This convient location with easy access to interstates 40 and 240 gives you access to all the delights of downtown, while being close to many of the outdoor attractions that make WNC such a wonderful place to be.

One mile away, the Blue Ridge Parkway is your avenue to spectaular views, cascading waterfalls, and revitalizing hikes. The cottage is only 12 miles to the extensive mountain bike trails at Bent Creek, and 20 miles from Chimney Rock and Lake lure. The legendary Biltmore House is just minutes away on Interstate 40.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Tim grew up in the area, and Muffi has lived here for over 30 years. We both went to Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, and love the outdoors and all that this area has to offer. We have one son (17) who goes to a highschool just 2 miles. away from Parkway Loop.

Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
This building was originally constructed as a wood-working shop, and when introduced to us, we fell in love with it and the location, and immediately saw the potential for a wonderful living space. We're both builders, so we took on the renovation ourselves, and added a bathroom addition, porch, and upstairs bedroom with a dormer and half-bath. We built custom kitchen cabinets, and had a great time furnishing, and creating a cozy living space.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the tall windows, light space, and wonderful 'small home' feel of this place. It's in a quiet wooded neighborhood, extremely convenient to Asheville and it's amenities, and just minutes from the Parkway and surrounding area attractions.
