Just a 2mile Uber from Downtown Asheville, Utopia on her own well, appears to be hidden deep in the countryside, teaming with wildlife and noisy with birds, and constructed with a sizable driveway with cameras for guest comfort and safety.
This total industrial style renovation commenced in April 2015, taking every day of 18 months. All four suites have access to the communal kitchen, dining-room and living-room while the Steel Suite is accessible from both the exterior and the interior by means of a digital keypad.
Accessible all the way by ramp, The Steel Suite accommodates two people in a luxurious custom steel & Corten queen bed constructed by Perdue Studios in Asheville. Matching closet doors opposite accommodate hung clothes and suitcases. Twin riveted steel murals adorn north and south walls, accentuated with custom lighting constructed from a pair of mirrored dimmable antique tobacco planters atop industrial desks. Diamond-plate wall-plates enhance the industrial motif, catching the bright afternoon sunset streaming between thickly forested trees. An original pristine steel dental cupboard complete with a lower turn handle latching vault is topped with a custom shelf accommodating a mechanical steel plate mold supporting a porcelain air-to-air missile cone. Twin stacks of green industrial steel drawers are ideal easily accessible storage while a steel sofa is the ideal place to park your suitcase to unpack. A stainless chain-link desk and wood-topped steel high chairs make computer work a pleasure, lit by a bicycle chain pendant light. The copper-tone fan and light are remotely accessed, as is your custom Mini-split whether opting for heat or AC. Carpeted flooring and radiant heat tiles throughout the bathroom and kitchenette treat your toes to a luxurious experience.
A barn door privatizes your bathroom, adorned with an antique guided mirror lit by a vintage enamel pendant light, mirroring the round white sink mounted on green marble, aesthetically embellished with a bronzed faucet to make cleaning a pleasure. A wooden shelf for your toiletries, a pro hairdryer and convenient stainless holder and a 10x magnification mirror add to your one-of-a-kind bathroom experience. While hand-soap is accessed by a horizontal push-button, your bath sheets hang on steel repurposed towel-rails. A while mini-blind ensures privacy in a well-lit bathroom by day or night, with an extractor fan at the push of a button. The full-tiled shower with removable shower head and custom hight bar will accommodate the needs of both tall and short while a custom chain-link shower curtain hangs from a gas pipe shower rail.
A charming steel shelving system supports additional pool/hot-tub towels and facecloths for your bathing pleasure while a gas-pipe double toilet-roll holder will accommodate all your bathroom softness needs
The steel trim stainless / OSB / granite / subway tile kitchenette is complete with toaster oven, kettle and fridge with ice for your drinks lit by a custom industrial workhorse light fixture accentuated with Edison bulbs.

About Fay Cullen
Well-immersed in the pastry and chocolate world for several decades, there is nothing on Marc’s list of culinary delights that features higher than chocolate and coffee. Playing a considerable role in both gutting and rebuilding this spectacular Chunn’s Cove residence, throughout 2015 & 16, Marc has conclusively proved that watching informative and directional Home Improvement Shows for the best part of adulthood, is akin to learning a new language. Born in Quebec, Marc’s native tongue is French but his English rivals any native tongue and his Spanish makes him trilingual. Not without her artistic inheritance, Fay’s world is defined as a pleasurable balance between entrepreneur and artist, commencing with a decade of international business travel in her early 20’s, evolving to a decade of motherhood punctuated by a successful but largely fulfilling decade in the office. Now the time is ripe to spread those four Sagittarian wings for this highly motivated couple, eager to explore exciting new business ventures.
Fay Cullen purchased this Studio in 2015
Why Fay Cullen chose Asheville
Chunns Cove is a world unto itself, just 5 minutes from downtown Asheville. We have two neighbors who are barely visible through the trees, otherwise all you can see is a spectacular almost 360 degree wooded views. The cove is human-quiet but bird-noisy! We regularly see creatures that you wouldn't expect and could easily mistake this place in summer for a Costa Rican rain-forest! Ingles, our local grocery store, is 2 minutes down the road and Walgreens is 5 minutes away.
What makes this Studio unique
Surrounded 360 Degrees by Rich Vegetation and Wildlife, This Secluded Mountain-view Cove, is the Ideal Place to Retreat, Whether to Write, Attend a Yoga Event, Play the Tourist, Immerse Yourself in the Asheville Art and Music Scene, Look for Property Or Simply Ponder Your Next Move Or Just Experience the Uniqueness of Today.

Meticulous Attention to Detail
We absolutely LOVED staying in the Steel Suite of Utopia and will be back the next chance we get! Fay and Marc are lovely people, and the level of detail of the renovations and decoration was astounding. They even thought to have robes & flip flops for your pleasure for the hot tub & pool. Soaking in the hot tub in the chilly weather, gazing at the bright stars in the clear mountain sky, was the perfect end to a night after a show downtown. We weren't in town long and had planned to eat out, but I can't wait to come back for a longer stay to create a meal in that gourmet kitchen! The location was very convenient - we could be downtown in about 8 minutes and to West Asheville in 12. Utopia is a fitting name!
Artsy, stimulating, comfy - really nice venue!
We enjoyed our stay! Property is easy to find and close to town, yet pleasantly secluded. Scrupulously clean throughout. Furnishings are super artsy and edgy (which we loved) yet quite comfortable overall. The kitchen was well-equipped, spacious, and stylish, and the coffee setup terrific. Hot tub was lovely. Fay and Marc were charming in our brief meeting.
My only suggestions are:
1. in the room, a really comfortable sofa or easy chair to sit in, and lighting suitable to read by.
2. in the common area, a sofa or somewhere comfy to sit and relax.
The Steel Suite is both lovely and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay - and it was helpful that the complex is close to town, but still in a very peaceful setting.
Great place and very close to Asheville.
The room, the pool and hot tub all clean and well prepared. Fay did a great job of accommodating any request we had. Definitely stay here again.
Fay and Marc were very accommodating. The room was really cool decor. We would definitely stay here again
Perfect Location and Very comfortable and industrial st the same time!
We loved the location of the Luxury Steel property! Very close to town but still felt remote and very quiet. The accommodations and decor were over the top. We loved their use of and vision for reclaimed furniture. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and kitchen were supplied with everything we needed and more. Loved the use of organic oils and vinegars available to the guests. We would highly recommend this property and definitely stay here again! Thank you Fay and Mark!
Although Utopia is Just 5 Minutes Drive from Downtown Asheville, One Could Be Mistaken for Thinking That the the Views and Wildlife Found in Chunns Cove Were National Forest Or Even a Costa Rican Rainforest. With Spectacular Mountainous Sunrises and Facing South, This Small Potentially Self-sufficient Homestead Hosts Vacation Rentals. Just a 2 Minute Drive to Ingles Grocery Store Or 4 Minutes to Walgreens or Wholefoods, There is Almost Nothing in Asheville That is Further Away Than 5 Minutes.
