This unique, upscale loft is located on Patton Avenue, between Church Street and Lexington Avenue, in the absolute heart of downtown Asheville. Offering 1800 square feet of spacious comfort and located steps away from many of the best galleries, restaurants, entertainment, and shopping in Asheville. The Loft at 35 Patton is owned by Asheville artist Eli Corbin, and is full of her colorful paintings. It was the featured loft on the Asheville Museum Loft and Art tour this year, as well as in 2008.

The loft is located in one of Asheville’s historic buildings. Architectural elements include expansive windows with a view of Church Street, wood floors, original tin ceiling, custom forged wrought iron railing, and a beautifully designed copper surround fireplace. It features a split level living room, spacious kitchen, open family room, and two bedrooms - each with private baths.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all dishes, utensils, and stainless steel appliances.

The guest bedroom offers a queen-size bed with Stearns and Foster pillowtop mattress, while the master suite offers a king-size pillowtop. Luxurious linens and robes are supplied for your comfort.

Beautifully appointed, this loft includes modern furnishings paired with antiques, original art, and various imported one-of-a-kind pieces. Many of the art and design items are available for purchase.

The Loft at 35 Patton is located on the second floor with 2 entrances. One is off the elevator with access to both College Street and Patton Avenue and the other is a stair access directly

off Patton Avenue. The College Street entrance is directly across from the Rankin Parking Deck.

To make your stay even more enjoyable, treat yourself to a massage at Spa Theology, just 2 doors down...and as a bonus, our guests receive a discount. Also, you will be directly across the street from Tops For Shoes - a well known shoe store that has a huge selection of footwear for the entire family.

Stay at the loft and experience the 'heartbeat' of downtown Asheville.

About Eli Corbin, owner

Originally from North Florida, I have lived in Asheville full time for many years. I purchased this loft in 2006 thinking I would share it with others as a vacation rental and eventually move in myself. The location is absolutely the BEST Asheville has to offer.

The loft is filled with my artwork, which I have on display, as well as for sale. I have a studio at 170 Lyman Street in the Warehouse studios in the River Arts District. I rotate works from studio to the loft in order to provide my guests with an in home gallery type experience while staying at the loft.

Eli Corbin, owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why Eli Corbin, owner chose Downtown

Asheville is such a vibrant and diverse city. It is small enough to walk to everything, yet large enough to have many choices regarding restaurants, clubs, galleries and shopping. I researched the market for a while before buying, but really liked the look, location and the fact that the parking deck is right across the street from the building. This loft is in the most central part of downtown.

What makes this condo unique

I love staying at the loft because it is so centrally located. When you walk out the door you are within walking distance to everything downtown. I've parked in the Rankin deck on Friday and not returned until Sunday. It is a great place to have friends over for drinks and then go out dancing, or to a movie at The Fine Arts, or catch a play at ACT, etc. Tops For Shoes is a large shoe store that is just across from the entrance on College Street, Spa Theology is 2 doors down, Anthropologie is just around the corner on Lexington and the list goes on.

It is also a great place to escape alone for some down time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed staying at the loft. Number 1, talk about atmosphere! Great vibe and super comfortable. We had no issues and nothing comes to mind regarding any repairs. We will certainly keep the lofts in mind next time we visit Asheville.

Perfect location, comfortable loft!

  • 5 of 5

We were at this property over Memorial Day weekend, and it was perfect for us! The location cannot be beat - walking distance to all the great restaurants - and parking was a breeze. It was spotless, had all the comforts we needed, and both Eli and Sarah were very easy to work with. I highly recommend it!!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at the loft. Holidays are always busy in Asheville, so it's nice you could park and not have to deal with traffic on the weekend. We do our best to make sure everyone feels comfortable and at home during their visit. Hope you will stay with us again. Eli

Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The condo exceeding all of our expectations. It was spotless, beautiful, roomy and had all (or more) of the amenities of home. When we were driving home, we all agreed that our favorite thing about our trip to Asheville was where we stayed. When we left, we wished that we had stayed much longer!

The location was superb and most convenient. At the same time, we couldn't believe how quiet it was. The beds were luxuriously comfortable. It's a great value for the money. We would recommend with no hesitation! It was almost better than being at home.

We ate breakfast every morning at the Green Sage restaurant, a mere 1.5 blocks away which was scrumptious. If we had stayed longer, we would have cooked at the condo though as the kitchen was better equipped than most homes and it was beautiful. Don't miss out on the French Broad Chocolate Cafe which is less than a block away.

To sum up, we won't stay anywhere else when we return to Asheville!

Gem in the Heart of Downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

My husband, friends and I loved this loft. It is very comfortable, thoughfully decorated and well care for. The big windows in the living area fill the space with light. Although we did not cook, the kitchen is well-equipped with anything you might need. Eli, the owner, is highly-responsive. Anytime we had a question, she immediately picked up the phone and was always helpful. This loft is truly a gem!

Wonderful Place, Great Location, Super Host

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at 35 Patton in Asheville. The loft is immaculate and is in the perfect location for our annual trek to the Southern Conference Basketball Tournament. The loft is always super clean and very well equipped. Eli goes out of her way to make sure her guests are comfortable and have everything they need to make their stay great. A new TV system installed this year caused some problems, but Eli went the extra mile to make it a non-issue. Thank you Eli for your time, persistence and attention to detail. The Loft will always be our first choice when coming to Asheville.

Great spacious loft in great downtown location.

  • 5 of 5

The loft is located conveniently in downtown and walkable to many restaurants, shops and entertainment. Check-in was very easy and we found the loft to be very accommodating. Parking is available (not included) directly across the street in a public garage. The loft is truly that- lots of open space and room to spread out- a large sitting area, dining table, kitchen with breakfast bar seating and a small seating area right by a beautiful fire place. Two spacious bedrooms with individual full bathrooms and plenty of closet space. Baths were fully stocked with ample towels and linens. Great instructions around the loft as well. The loft is decorated with eclectic mix of furnishings and artistic elements- some available for purchase.

There is noise from the bar/restaurant below, which features live music at least on weekend nights. This ended early and was never an issue for us when sleeping. We heard nothing in the bedroom over night.

Eli, our host, was responsive to text questions when needed.

Overall, a great space and wonderful visit.
