About the Property
Brand New, European Design, In Historic Building Downtown, Walk Everywhere
The short story
Loft living with a view of downtown roofs and mountains in the distance: it doesn't get any better than this! Seven hundred square feet with a separate bedroom and sleek bathroom, modern kitchen and lovely living space on the second floor of the brand new remodeled Rankin Press building in the middle of downtown. All the character of a historic building (original exposed brick walls and hardwood floors, high ceilings) combines with stylish, modern amenities (stainless appliances, modern bathroom, washer/dryer, elevator, chic street entrance) to give you the most comfortable life in Asheville. Step outside and you are in the middle of everything: the culinary, shopping and art mecca of Asheville. Step inside and you are in a quiet, secluded urban hideaway. Secure off street parking available right across from your front door in city operated parking deck. Designated loading bay by front door for easy arrival and departure. Sleeps 2 to 4 in comfortable, clean and quiet luxury.
Let us tell you a little more
Come experience the luxe and quiet of our spacious loft in the heart of downtown. Furnished and decorated with a European design sense, modern yet warm and inviting, you will start relaxing the minute you step inside. Everything is designed for your comfort. Clean, peaceful and perfectly outfitted: our loft has everything for the discerning traveler. Spend the day eating, drinking and making merry, or spend it rafting, hiking and playing (you can store your road or mountain bikes in our building). Then come back to your centrally located loft, rest, put your feet up, and get ready to go out again into the vibrant nightlife of Asheville. There is a restaurant with a James Beard Award nominated chef on the corner of your street (Table); his den of mixology, with out-of-this-world cocktails, is one flight of stairs up from there (The Imperial Life). Or how about a loungey bar for chocolate lovers, with wine, of course, but also handmade bonbons and spectacular deserts so good that the line often stretches out the door (French Broad Chocolate Lounge)? Walk down the street and around the corner, and you're there. You are also next door to the south's finest shoe store with its 300 brands and staff of personal shoppers (Tops for Shoes). Those are just a few of the many, many fun things to do in asheville. You can catch a play at the Asheville Community Theatre or a movie at the Fine Arts cinema. Or how about a leisurely stroll to the River Arts District, to visit artists in their studios and have a beer at The Wedge? Speaking of beer, famous local artisanal beers and their brewers are calling your name! See what's brewing and sample what's new at the many downtown bars and breweries. Watch the sun set on Cold Mountain at Asheville's highest elevation bar (The Sky Bar). Go hear a live band at the famous Orange Peel. Take a Pilates or yoga class and have a spa treatment. So many things to do, so much to see. You can go days without using your car, which is safely and affordably parked, off street, right across from your front door.

About the owner: Our loft is brand new, and we are very proud of it. We are Ricardo (born in Colombia, entrepreneur and business owner) and Claudia (born in Holland, writer and interior designer). We moved to Asheville 12 years ago, after traveling and living all over the world, and we love our town! It is a wonderful place to raise our family and we would love to share its fun and rewarding experiences with you. Asheville has everything: stunning natural beauty surrounding it, vibrant culture, great food, distinctive architecture, interesting people, a relaxed and safe pace, and so many things to do, see, taste and enjoy that you will want to stay longer. We are both deeply involved in the local community and know the restaurateurs, artists, micro brewers, outdoor enthusiasts (or Pilates teachers, massage therapists, chocolatiers, zipliners,) that you want to meet. We look forward to welcoming you!
Why the Owner Chose Downtown, Asheville, NC, USA:
We had our eye on this building for a long time. It housed the Rankin Press, a historical Asheville business, and has a real urban appeal. It is beautifully situated and we were very excited when we heard it would be renovated for mixed residential and commercial use. Our block is so vibrant and has so much to offer; shops, restaurants, bars, a salon, a brewery, residential apartments, galleries. But our loft is away from the street and offers complete quiet and seclusion, in the middle of downtown! Truly the best of all worlds.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our loft has the beauty of a historic building: original wooden floors, exposed brick walls, high ceilings. But it is modern at the same time, and very easy to live in. What is most attractive about it is the sense of privateness and retreat that you get when you step inside. We love spending time here!
