VIEWS, PRIVACY, CONVENIENCE, EASY ACCESS, HOT TUB, and an AMAZING DECK!!!

The custom-built Passive Solar home was designed for both comfort and entertaining. It has generously sized rooms, amazing views, and seemingly endless areas to gather… or to enjoy a little solitude and tranquility.

LOCATION: This property is 17 miles from Asheville’s city limits, approximately a 20-25 minute drive to the heart of downtown. It is easily accessed via Interstate 26 and Highway 197, with no curvy mountain roads to maneuver. There are also several cab companies that can transport groups to and from downtown.
It is 10 minutes to the charming historic towns of Weaverville and Mars Hill. It’s only a few miles to the Coleman Boundary area of the Pisgah National Forest, 3 miles to Navitat Canopy Adventures (quite possibly the best zipline company in the country), and the French Broad River is nearby: kayaking, rafting, tubing, and fly fishing are offered by several local Outfitters. Bent Creek recreation area in Asheville ranks among the top 10 Mountain Biking sites in the country!
Voted Beer City USA for 4 consecutive years, there is more than the fabulous craft breweries in Asheville. LaZoom Comedy Tours offer family-friendly as well as R-rated adult entertainment, the Blue Ridge Parkway is beautiful any time of year, the Biltmore Estate is the largest privately-owned house in the United States and is open for tours year-round, the Arboretum and Botanical Gardens are lovely, and other recreational options are seemingly endless! Mix in Ashevilles cuisine, art, and music... you are not likely to find a quaint vacation destination with so much to offer!
I've been in real estate for what seems my entire life. With parents as Realtors, it's always been a family business. I began appraising in college, investing in rentals at the age of 24, and have been a Property Manager ever since. I fell in love with this house and it's view during my first showing (as a Real Estate Broker)... luckily for me, my clients were not interested! Eight months later, I purchased the home and ~8 acres.
Paula Taylor purchased this cabin in 2004
This property and house leave people in awe... from the initial impression coming up the driveway to the expansive living area leading directly to that 'magnet' of a deck... it has the ideal balance of peace, views, and easy access to downtown and other amenities!
It is, undoubtedly, one of the most special properties in the Asheville area! Built in 1986 as a retirement residence with a Swiss Chalet design, there are charming and unique details throughout. The coat closet and pantry lights come on when the doors are opened, skylights and a passive solar design provide a light and bright atmosphere, the ceiling soars to 18' in the Living room, and all rooms of ample size.
The kitchen cabinets were hand-made by the original owner and feature a 'Small Appliance Garage': simply open the door with the brass 'Coffee Maker' label, and pull out the trolley upon which sits the coffee maker! The spice drawer might amuse you, or inspire you... the dumbwaiter is non-functioning, but still fun to check out! How often do you see a modern version of Thomas Jefferson's invention?
Multiple indoor and outdoor 'living areas' make this home an ideal get-away for intimate escapes, family reunions, or for your visitors who prefer a home rather than a hotel.
Spacious and comfortable, there are options to relax in/on the... Den, Living Room, Kitchen with a 'pass-through' to the Dining Room, the Deck, a shady pergola, and 8 acres upon which to roam!
I've made improvements over the years, most of them cosmetic as well as the less exciting upgrades to the major systems (heat/AC, roof, electrical, etc.). Improvements are made every year to modernize the Chalet while maintaining its original charm and character. The house is fully functional and very comfortable. It has come a long way from the fixer-upper condition it was when I purchased it, and I continue to enjoy the process of converting it into my vision and having the ability to share this special property with guests!
We had a wonderful time relaxing at your beautiful Chalet. The mountains are and the weather was perfect. We enjoyed exploring Asheville and its surroundings. We did some hiking, brewery tours, and ate lots of yummy food. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
We hope to be back again!
We came to the Chalet for quick two night stay and did not want to leave. The house is so comfortable and the views are amazing. The owner was very accommodating and provided lots of great details on the house and the area. We will be back this Spring with our kids to go zip lining. Thanks again!!
We loved our stay at the Chalet. The house is as described/pictured & we couldn't have asked for a better location or view. We couldn't get enough of the the night view of the stars from the hot tub (we live in a city so this was an awesome treat)! The house has a really chill, old-school vibe, and it feels like a lot of great times have happened there... our stay was no exception! Would absolutely stay here again!!
Large rooms, rolling grounds, and privacy make this a wonderful home in the mountains. The inside is clean, with comfortable beds and comfortable linens and towels. Criticisms are few... there were some old cabinets which had been left outside near the garage, detracting from the overall impression. The kitchen cabinets are a little dated, and there is some outside paint and grounds maintenance that could use some sprucing up, Show stoppers? Not at all. It's a homey, comfortable place where your dogs and kids can run and play. It's got a lot of room to eat and entertain, inside and out. I would recommend to others.
The Chalet was like a home away from home... large rooms, yet comfortable and inviting. The Kitchen was supplied with everything we needed, the Recreation Room had entertainment for the entire family, and the Deck was irresistible!
Plenty of space for us to gather together, as well as to sneak away for private time.
We'll definitely be back and will recommend it to friends!!!
The chalet is everything we were looking for. We had a group of 6 that wanted space and great views. This house had everything! easy to access, clean and great stars at night. It was hard to leave the porch.
There were 6 of us total, three couples. We had a great relaxing trip staying in the mountains. Lots of space in the home. It was close to Asheville so we were able to go downtown and tour the bars and shops. Plenty of kitchen space to cook a meal in the evening. Owner was very helpful - home was very clean! We would stay again.
Only 17 miles from Asheville City limits, this property is a peaceful and private lodge-style retreat (allow 20-25 minutes drive time to Asheville). The charming town of Weaverville is less than 10 miles and offers restaurants, shops, galleries, grocery, pharmacies, and banking.
