Asheville house description

My wonderful house in Asheville NC is a completely renovated historic home built almost 100 years ago. Located in possibly the most popular area of Asheville, Montford is one of the largest historic districts in the state of North Carolina. It is only minutes from The Biltmore Estate , The Grove Park Inn, great hiking from the Blue Ridge Parkway, rafting on the French Broad , walk to Bele Chere , The Moog Fest , The US Cellular Center, and other great Downtown dining and live music opportunities , The neighborhood draws visitors and permanent residents with beautiful landscaping and structures, many of which where built between 1890 and 1925, reflecting Victorian, Tudor, Colonial Revival, and Georgian architectural styles.
Montford houses the western region visitors center , packed with information about Asheville and Western N.C. attractions and activities , along with a wonderful local farmers market. The cottage is within walking distance to downtown Asheville .Montford is very pedestrian and bike friendly, home to Riverside cemetery ( Thomas Wolfe burial site )
Other neighborhood attractions include two wonderful restaurants , Nine Mile and Todd's Tasty Cafe, the Montford Park Players, who put on performances of Shakespeare's works each summer in an outdoor theater.
My house is 2000 sq ft , two stories and has lots of privacy with a large privacy fenced yard. It is surrounded by beautiful majestic Oak trees that provide wonderful shade and gorgeous fall colors.
It has two extra large bedrooms( with king beds , one normal size bedroom with queen bed and a third semi private room with a queen size sleeper. The bedrooms all have tv's and nice bedding. There is a beautiful large bath with a six foot claw foot tub and shower , wonderful towels and it's own private balcony to sit in the sun after your luxurious soak, all on the second floor. There is a half bath on the first along with a small offset room with a queen size sleeper sofa .
The house is decorated with many beautiful antiques , work of local artist , has hardwood floors and lots of beautiful natural light. The large den is very comfortable , with sofa ,recliners and rocking chairs all surrounding the fireplace and 46' smart T.V. , Netflix is provided. The bookcase is loaded with interesting reads of all types , including local history. There is WiFi and extended cable TV.
