About the property

Open floor plan, deck & covered porch, 2 Large Bedrooms, 2 beds, Sublime View

Only 20 minutes north of Asheville, this home is within a quiet, friendly, private community nestled at the base of a sunny south facing mountain. The view is pastoral and lovely. Large Tulip Poplar trees create just enough natural green screen to filter the sun and offer a little seclusion. The soothing magic of wild mountain air can be felt here.

Open floor plan between kitchen and living room opens out onto a large sunny deck and wrap around covered porch. Comfortably furnished this home is a sanctuary ~ a quiet corner of the world to relax, rejuvenate.

Upstairs Master Bedroom: Sleep with the stars and moon through a sky filled wall of windows ~ a dreamy tree top view with a lots of light. Private balcony, cathedral ceilings, queen size bed, claw foot bathtub/shower and walk-in closet.

Main level Master Bedroom: Natural tones and blue hues for a soft nest like setting. A better room choice for those that need less light for sleeping! Queen size bed, master bathroom with walk-in double head shower room made for two!

Built in 2008 with love and green building principles. Intended to blend in with the lay of the land with a casual barefoot style.

We are 20 minutes north of Asheville, 10 minutes to downtown Weaverville, 5 minutes to Blue Ridge Parkway and trails

45 minutes will get you to Hotsprings and into a tub of natural hot spring water by the river.

Laundry room in basement available upon request.

Please take note the house is a spacious 3 levels with the upper 2 levels being offered in the description above.

The lower or basement level is private with separate entrance and a part time residence for the owner.

Please tell me a little about yourself and what brings you to the area.

About Leah Baker

Returned to my North Carolina roots in 2006 after living in San Francisco Bay area for 17 years.

I enjoy walking in the woods, riding my horse, traveling, being a crafty artisan ~ see my lamps at Woolworth Walk in Asheville or check out Luminosa Lighting via . Yes, a shameless plug!

Leah Baker purchased this house in 2007

Why Leah Baker chose Weaverville

My sister and I have owned this land since 1982 and finally in 2006 it was time to come back east.

What makes this house unique

Weaverville is a sweet little town just far enough away from Asheville to get away from the crowd but not so far to be inconvenient. Last few years some very good restaurants have opened and offer some great local choices. The Glass Onion on Main Street, a fantastic bakery (Well Bred), a quiet internet cafe (All Good Coffee), Blue Mountain Pizza (usually has live music), and The Twisted Laurel to name a few. Miya Gallery/Store and Mangum Pottery showcase beautiful locally made art and craft work. You don't have to go back in to Asheville to have a night out. The house sits close to the parkway, 10 minutes from downtown Weaverville and 20 minutes from downtown Asheville.

Hiking, Zipline, Natural Hotsprings, river tubing are all nearby.

Beautiful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely lovely! We were able to bring our dog, and he had a wonderful time too. The house was absolutely gorgeous, and the views were breathtaking. It's a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is a great way to see the amazing mountain views and get some hiking in, and the town of Weaverville was quaint and charming with great restaurants. We had a great time during our stay and would highly recommend to anyone thinking about visiting the area.

Outstanding !

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious home with all the amenities, privacy and serenity one could hope for. My only recommendation is to replace double beds for either queen or king beds for taller guests!

Owner's Response: Thank you Judy! Both beds are Queen size and the one downstairs without a foot board can accommodate a very tall person. Your person must be Extra tall! :-)

It was like coming home. It was so warm and comfortable. It was very clean. From the kitchen to the bathroom you had everything you expected and more. The landscaping was beautiful. I will definitely stay here again. Tina & Wallace

Wild Mountain Air

  • 5 of 5

We loved Wild Mountain Air! The house is actually one of the first ones to which I would happily return. We appreciated the careful construction of the house, the cool lamps, the views . . . especially the views, all the textiles (made us feel like we were home), and the full and well-stocked kitchen. We'd love to see it in the fall!

The area was beautiful! Great views of the mountains and lots of fresh air. I did a lot of walking

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable. Beds were good and lots of hot water. I was there for the month of July and only used the air conditioner a few times. Leah was very responsive to any requests and/or problems.
