Amazing views, close to downtown, beautiful new house and property
IF YOU DON'T SEE THE DATES YOU WANT, CONSIDER OUR OTHER LISTING! #685155. It is on the same property, and is virtually identical!
This immaculate home has an open floor plan, lots of light and hardwood floors. The house is clean, modern, and comfortable.
The master has its own bathroom, a queen bed and large windows that look out into the woods and gardens on one side, and the vast mountains on the other side.
The upstairs has two bedrooms. One has a queen and a daybed that opens to make two twins. The other bedroom has a queen and a double futon. The upstairs has a full bath with a tub/shower that is shared between the two bedrooms. Both bedrooms have mountain views!
The living room is open to the kitchen and dining area and has a sectional couch and comfortable chairs, and like the other rooms, you can look out over the layers of mountains.
The kitchen is brand new, modern and has all the basics you should need to cook and enjoy meals while staying here.
The dining area has a long table (center leaf can be removed if you want it smaller) and seats 8 comfortably but is capable of seating 10. We provide folding chairs to add to the seating capacity.
The covered porch is quite literally another room! It runs the length of the house and is 10 feet deep. There are rockers and a table that seats 6 comfortably and 8 if you squeeze.
Outside we have a patio area with a fire bowl and boulders for sitting around the fire. A short distance from the house is a picnic area that provides spectacular long range views. You will not want to miss this! We also have a loop trail that is about 1/3 mile long, plus some gravel roads for walking.

About Steve and Louise
We bought this 40-acre farm in 2010 and finished building the vacation rental September 2013. We are so excited because having a farm with a vacation rental has long been a dream of ours! We have a small herd of French Alpine dairy goats and plenty of chickens at our home on the other side of the property.
Steve and Louise purchased this House in 2013
Why Steve and Louise chose Asheville
I moved to the area 20 years ago to attend college at Warren Wilson College. I left for 5 years to attend graduate school in Seattle, and though Seattle was a wonderful place, we couldn't wait to get our family back to the area. We have now been back since 2002 and watched this amazing town burgeon into a fun and popular tourist destination. This property is one of the few of its kind: a large parcel of land within 1 mile of Asheville city limits and only 10 minutes to the center of downtown.
What makes this House unique
This property is unique because you have access to beautiful spaces indoors and out. You also have access to woods and meadows, trees and views. It just depends where you decide to spend your time while you are here. This house is also unique because it is situated on a farm, yet it so close to downtown Asheville and Biltmore Village. There are very few properties that can boast this fact. Most larger tracts are much further away or on steep land. This land is rolling and great for exploring. Also, our land virtually backs up onto the Blue Ridge Parkway land, just look at the map. The entrance to the Parkway is only about 2 miles away and is the entrance where the Folk Art Center is. This is a great place to visit while you are here. There are hiking trails both on the Parkway and at Warren Wilson College, which is only a few short miles away. We also have some short trails here on the property.

Great place to stay!
We loved staying at this house. Lots of room, plenty of bathrooms, great fireplace, and wonderful views. It's also close to the Appalachian Trail, and only blocks from the Mountain to Sea Trail. The house had everything we needed and more.
Great for families
Rented this house for my two sisters and their families to stay in while they were here for my wedding. Lots of room for the kids to run around. Great view from the deck.
Perfect Spring Break
We visited Asheville with our kids for Spring Break and the house were perfect. We felt like we were in the mountains away from reality yet we were only a few minutes from a grocery and all we could ever need and downtown was 10 minutes. We have small kids so the big yard was amazing for them to run around and the home is set back from the road so no worries about them running wild out there. Steve was so accommodating, they left us a dozen eggs and even brought us two more dozen during our stay! I’m a sucker for those baby blue farm fresh eggs! The house was perfect and clean, we loved everything about it! We had more than enough room! Thanks again, we can’t wait to return!
Clean, Quiet, Charming, & Close!
My husband & I, along with another couple, came up to Asheville for an early spring retreat to the mountains. Steve & Louise's mountain-view home was the perfect base from which to explore the area. The location could not have been better. Within minutes of NW Asheville, we were close enough to pop-in for dinner & entertainment yet removed enough to enjoy the beauty and peacefulness as well. The hillside setting was lovely and provided a glorious long-range view of the mountains, just what we were looking for. In the mornings, wild turkeys grazed in front and at night we could sometimes hear the call of wild coyotes...what a treat! The home's layout and furnishings make it well-suited for two couples or families with large bedrooms and numerous places to gather both inside and out: a large dining table, sectional seating in front of the fireplace & TV, a deep porch with rockers from which to enjoy the view, and a delightful outdoor fire pit with seating. The home was very clean, the kitchen well-stocked, and the beds perfectly comfortable. Steve was a pleasure to work with and promptly responded to our initial rental request. He & Louise live on the other side of the property and are but a phone call or text away, happy to assist with questions and provide a wealth of knowledge about the area. Oh yes, the fresh eggs were the icing on the cake...what better way to enjoy our first morning on the mountain? Thank you, Steve & Louise...we look forward to returning! D'Ann
Great location and even better house!
I rented this house for a girls weekend and it was perfect! Steve went above and beyond to make sure our stay went well. The location is great to get anywhere in Asheville. It is a short trip down town. The views were great and it is in a quite area. Look no further if than this house :) you will not regret it!
Great property - awesome views - very clean
This place was perfect! Stocked with everything you would ever need and it was very clean. The views were great and hosts VERY attentive. Close distance to downtown Asheville and Biltmore. We will definitely be looking to stay here again.
This property is located within 10 minutes of the HEART of downtown Asheville, yet is on the edge of a 40 acre property and a few short minutes from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The setting is rural, but not remote. The house itself is in a cleared wooded area and gets a lot of light.
We are within a couple miles of restaurants, a drugstore and a large supermarket. We are also close to many trails for hiking including the Mountains to Sea Trail.
