Asheville condo description

This loft is recently under new ownership but everything has remained the same. Previously this loft had 50 5-star reviews and is located in the absolute heart of downtown Asheville. Beautifully decorated and just steps from all downtown Asheville has to offer, this chic and comfortable oasis is the perfect spot for relaxing after exploring or shopping downtown. The Loft at 51 College is decorated by local artist Eli Corbin, and is full of her colorful paintings. This loft was featured on the 2008 Asheville Museum Loft and Art tour.

This 2 bedroom 2 bath loft offers all the luxuries and comforts of home. The main living area has wood floors, a mosaic tile surrounds the gas fireplace, kitchen open to the living room and dining room, original artwork, and is designed with your comfort in mind.

Enjoy lounging by the fire while catching up on your favorite game or just taking it easy after a massage - our guests receive 10% off treatments at Spa Theology (just 2 doors down).

At the end of the day (or night) relax in the Master bedroom with King bed and luxurious linens. The bedroom is carpeted and adjoins the tiled master bath, with Jacuzzi tub. There is a TV with Amazon Fire Box and DVDs if you choose to snuggle in and watch movies.

The guest bedroom has a comfortable Queen size pillow top mattress and TV with Amazon Fire Box. Both bedrooms are located toward the interior of the building to assure a quiet night's sleep.

The kitchen has all the modern upgrades (including gas range) and is fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, utensils and appliances. Enjoy your coffee or breakfast in the morning while people watching in the breakfast nook area which looks down onto bustling College Street.

There is elevator and stair access to this loft, with convenient parking directly across the street in the city owned Rankin Avenue parking deck. Parking: The entrance to The Loft at 51 College is conveniently located directly across from the Rankin Street parking garage. Charge is: first hour free, $1.00 per hour after that OR $10/day.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2014

                  About the owner: Jamie and Angie Shryock - We live in Denver, NC with our two daughters and our dog Zoe. We have considered Asheville our home away from home for over 10 years and are very excited to finally own a little piece of Asheville!

                  Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                  This loft is right in the heart of downtown and is just steps away from shopping, restaurants, art galleries, craft breweries and night life. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
