This 1910 farmhouse has been mindfully restored and updated to blend warm historic details with cool, clean lines. At 1,800 square feet this two story home is light, bright, peaceful, and private. Less than 1.5 miles from downtown Asheville, with easy access to the River Arts District, Biltmore, West Asheville, Grove Park Inn, and more. Everything is a short drive or Uber ride away.
The bedrooms are located on the second floor, with beautiful furnishings like an antique sleigh bed and 1800s princess dresser. These rooms gives guests a chance to unwind and soak in the quiet of the mountainside. The original hardwood floors add character and remind us of a simpler time.
Bonus space, like an antechamber complete with an antique desk and granite topped dresser, are highlights of this home. We took care to bring renewed life to some of the original architecture in this 100+ year old home by exposing part of the brick chimney. Other interesting details like a headboard from the old days of the Grove Park Inn add natural light into the space and warm character with its solid wood design.
There are two full bathrooms, one on each floor; both have been remodeled with updated fixtures throughout. The upstairs bathroom was completely redone with sophisticated features and thoughtful design in mind. There is nothing "rustic" about this bathroom, as you will find when you slide the modern glass doors behind you and take in the rain shower showerhead. The downstairs bathroom provides a second location for showering or freshening up after a long day of hikes, biking, or exploring the breweries or antique outlets of Asheville.
The main level of the home is a welcoming space. Our spacious, bright, and inviting living room offers multiple sitting areas, a large flat-screen TV, a Roku for streaming entertainment, and plentiful windows for soaking up the peace of your surroundings. In the heart of the home, our sitting room is styled to embrace the character, architecture, and ambiance of this 100+ year old house and designed with a nod to the era in which it was built. This space offers you the opportunity to sit, look inward, and slow down. Catch up with your friends, catch up on your reading, enjoy a local brew, catch your breath. Take several moments to remember all the work you do to build and support your own life and see that personal work in metaphorical parallel to structure and support of the exposed beams and tireless bricks, laid oh-so many years ago. We all work so hard. We deserve a time to relax.
Encircled with large windows and tons of natural light, our kitchen is a space designed for hosting and socializing. The peninsula invites you to partake with your cook and enjoy the sights, smells, and laughter. The dining area entreats you to take a seat, tune in, and connect with your loved ones. Take your time and look at the features of this space, from exposed bricks and beams to a novel set of custom barn doors that take the place of traditional cabinet doors. Don't miss our complimentary Keurig coffee and we invite you to help yourself to a beverage and some local snacks.
There is a nice gas grill to aid your cooking experience. Parking is ample with a private drive and multiple parking spaces.
Finally, we want to share one of our favorite aspects of this home - getting there. There is more than one way to approach the house, but nothing sets your mood better than winding around Beaucatcher Mountain from downtown. Enjoys those curvy roads as you see fit, but we suggest going slow, watching for wild turkeys and larger creatures, rolling down your windows and letting the soft, fragrant air wrap around you and transport you to a magical place. A place where you find comfort and peace. A place where you find your self.
