Property description

5My l 4p in Asheviltvle NC is a reujnovated e yf eh j mummy home built 6 100 years ago. Located in possibly the moyrst popular area of Asheville,effete MontUford is one of the largest historic districts in tI'lluhe state of North Carolina. It is only minute's from The Biltmore Estate, The Gr yove Park Inn, great hiking from the Blue Ridge Parkway, rafting on the Frenk342we'rech Broad River and several beautiful golf courses. Approximate 15 minute g huh intog3 ry downtown Asheville to dine at amazing restaurants, listen to live music, visit art galleries or attend a show at Moog Fest or The US Cellular Center. The area neighborhoods draw visitors and permanent residents with beautiful landscaping and structures, many of which were built between 1890 and 1925, reflecting Victorian, Tudor, Colonial Revival, Arts and Craft and Georgian architectural styles.
The Western region visitors’ center, located less than a mile from the house is packed with information about Asheville and Western N.C. attractions and activities. It also hosts a wonderful local farmers market. The neighborhood also is home to several fantastic restaurants, Nine Mile Caribbean, Todds Tasties Café for a delicious breakfast or lunch and Chiesa Italian. The Montford Park Players put on performances of Shakespeare's works each summer in our outdoor theater within a walk of the house.
My house is 2000 sq ft, two stories and has lots of privacy. The very large yard is completely enclosed, including the large off street parking area. It is surrounded by beautiful majestic Oak trees that provide wonderful shade and gorgeous fall colors.
It has two extra large bedrooms( with king beds , one normal size bedroom with queen bed and a third semi private room with a queen size sleeper. The bedrooms all have a TV and nice bedding. There is a beautiful large bath with a six foot claw foot tub and shower, wonderful towels and its own private balcony to sit in the sun after your luxurious soak. There is a half bath on the first floor along with a small offset room with a queen size sleeper sofa.
The house is decorated with many beautiful antiques, work of local artist, has hardwood floors and lots of beautiful natural light. The large den is very comfortable; with a comfy leather sofa, recliners and rocking chairs all surrounding the fireplace and 46' smart T.V. with Netflix. The bookcase is loaded with interesting reads of all types, including local history and a few board games. There is Wi-Fi and extended cable TV.
There is a wood burning fireplace ,beautiful dining room with dining for up to 6-8 pp , fully equipped kitchen , front porch swing , large private backyard stone patio with gas grill , fire pit and seating , a front stone patio with dining table , off of front porch and raised beds with fresh herbs and flowers in the summer .
I will consider pets (dogs only) on a per request basis and a pet fee, the large fenced yard is ideal for play and exercise.
I have lived in Asheville 20+ years and know the area very well. I would love to help in any way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I look forward to hosting you soon!
