This luxurious mountain retreat, nestled in the Cane Creek Valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains, on the immediate outskirts of downtown Asheville, offers a relaxing and invigorating escape.
The Hart House is luxury.

We are LOCAL OWNERS taking exquisite care of our property & are available anytime to see to your needs. We make sure the home is exceptionally clean, well maintained & ready for you just relax & unwind.......
The Hart House is secluded at the end of a small, private drive, surrounded by 100+ acres acres of lush forest, horse farms, cattle ranch and horse grazing meadows. It has 6 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, with about 4,500 SF. Surprisingly, although this home is just 5 miles from Interstate 26, 10 minutes from the airport, only 20 minutes from downtown Asheville and 10 minutes from the shopping village at Biltmore Park, this picturesque estate home is quiet, private and in an enchanted world of its own.

The inviting & open feel of the main living room with wood burning fireplace, rich wood floors, and attractive and comfortable furnishings will embrace you with its warm ambiance. You are right off the kitchen and casual dining area, so that everyone can be a part of preparing meals, sharing time together, and simply gathering in front of the fire.
The Great Rm is flanked by an exquisitely designed, warm and inviting Den, where relaxation takes on a whole new meaning. A gas log fireplace, hardwood paneled walls (reclaimed from the Sears Tower), and beautiful, comfortable furniture, create an ambiance to melt away the world around you!
The delightful, chef's quality, eat-in kitchen will charm you with the beautiful cherry cabinets, wood floors, comfortable bar stools, and casual dining area. The 3 ovens, extra large refrigerator and awesome amount of counter space will make you smile, and the top quality cookware will please any chef!

The knives are sharp, there’s a multitude of quality cookware, coffeemaker and even a coffee grinder for your freshly brewed coffee.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Having grown up in North Carolina, I moved to Alaska at the age of 21, where I lived and worked for 19 years and where all 3 of my boys were born. We moved back to NC in 2003 and lived in Hart House as a family until 2011. With 2 of my 3 boys away at school, my sons and I no longer needed such a big space but did not want to part with our beloved family home. So, the decision was made to move into a smaller property and offer Hart House to guests who wanted to experience a wonderful western North Carolina retreat together in one house - not in a hotel. It has been more rewarding than we could have imagined to know that groups of families, friends, business colleagues and wedding parties have come together to enjoy the Asheville area and the home that we love. If you are reading this...I hope that we can make your stay in the Asheville area the best that it can be!!
Why the Owner Chose Asheville, NC, USA:
Hart House was purchased as a family home because I wanted to live, work, and raise my children in the Asheville area. Western North Carolina is beautiful, the people are genuine, the culture is outstanding, and there is more to do here than there is time in which to do it. It is wonderful to see people from other places enjoying the beauty and character of the Asheville area!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
My favorite things about Hart House: sitting in front of one of the fireplaces on a winter's night; cooking for groups of friends or family - 3 ovens and lots of counter space make it SO much easier; sipping a cup of tea on the front porch on a peaceful, warm Spring morning; roasting marshmallows around the campfire pit in the lower yard; grilling dinner on the back porch while enjoying a glass of wine and music with my family and friends.
