This cozy 1905 Carriage House was renovated over the last 30 years to function as a modern home while retaining historic integrity and charm (the main house burned down in the 70's). This was my architectural design studio while I lived in the cottage next door, during the construction of my new home on the front part of the property about 8 years ago (featured in Fall 2010 Fine Homebuilding magazine).
Accessed by a quiet old carriage alley, within 10 min walk of our vibrant downtown and UNCA, and convenient to the I-240, in the middle of a historic neighborhood of lovingly restored homes and B&B's.
Wood floors and windows throughout, tastefully furnished with leather couch, table for 6, W/D, fully equipped kitchen (incl utensils, pots/pans, cooktop, microwave, etc), but no DW, two sets of linens, comforters, etc.,CATV, wireless internet, and all utilities included. 12mb wireless network is private, but shared with the cottage tenant.
The House is on two levels, with the larger master bedroom and bath (with shower) on the lower level (unfinished storage bay is adjacent), with a door to the covered stone patio. Other rooms are upstairs, including a second bedroom and bath, with clawfoot tub, the living area spilling out to a large elevated deck tucked under a mature tree canopy, surrounded by lush landscaping.
The Carriage House is adjacent to my 1940 rental cottage.
30 day minimum, unless gaps between reservations allow shorter stay.
Also within 10 min walk to Wholefoods grocery, several neighborhood restaurants, parks, a historic cemetery, YMCA, etc. Perfect place to live while relocating.

The driveway from the one-way alley is between two stone walls, and is tight, smaller cars are easier. Parking for three cars is shared with the cottage, so one car each unit is preferred.
