Property description

Look no further! You found a great home in the most beautiful neighborhood in Asheville for your vacation. When you turn onto lush Cherokee Road from Charlotte Street, you will pass by The Manor Inn & Gatehouse, built in 1898, and enter one of Asheville's four designated local and National Register historic districts; Albemarle Park, a neighborhood filled with 'cottages' from the late 19th century that has attracted many travelers including actors Grace Kelly, Alec Guinness, Agnes Morehead and 'the father of rhythm and blues', Louis Jordan.

Albemarle Park is unique among Asheville's Historic Districts. Every single one of its significant structures is still intact and relatively unchanged today. The cottages were all given their own unique names; Clover, Rosebank, Brown Bear, Wildfell, Kalmia, Daffodil, Italdo (pronounced It'll Do), Chipmunk, Dahlia, to name a few. Your home is called Cherokee House at 16 Cherokee Road between Shamrock and The Crow's Nest--splendidly located one mile from downtown Asheville and one mile from the Grove Park Inn.

The home is a 2000 sq ft handsome grey stucco home with a large flat front yard. It was built in 1925. A custom stacked stone ring wall encloses two gardens and cedar tree at the front porch. There is comfortable patio furniture on the porch as well as a teak table for outdoor dining. Enjoy the covered sitting area in the back yard and outdoor grill next to the parking pad. The home has brand new central air and heat, 2 zones--upstairs and downstairs. It also has a new Kohler whole-house generator so when the electricity goes out in the neighborhood, you are totally covered.

The interior has a contemporary feeling with original hardwood floors and dim-able recessed lighting. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, living room, tv room, basement, dining room & half bath. French doors open out to the front porch from the living room and dining room. There is high-speed wireless internet throughout the home.

The bedrooms are on the second floor. The Master bedroom has a King size bed, flat screen TV and its own bright full bathroom & closet. A private wood deck accoutered, table with umbrella, is attached to the Master bedroom. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, closet & a smart TV. The 3rd bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser & closet. A full bath in hallway is shared by the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms.

The main floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, stylish living room, a modern gas fireplace, and a relaxing TV room with an automatic reclining sofa and 54-inch LED smart TV - Charter Cable, Pandora music & Neflix included. There is a basement with a washer and dryer. There is a private two-car parking pad behind the house. The driveway is shared with the neighbor. Two adult bicycles & one kid bicycle with helmets and locks are available for your use during your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My name is Mike Boustead and my husband is David Francis. We have been together for 21 years--married recently in Asheville. We previously lived in Los Angeles where we both worked in the film and music industries. I was a music editor for such films as Remember the Titans, The Royal Tenenbaums, Collateral, Lemony Snicket's: A Series of Unfortunate Events, and many others. David was a recording pianist for such films as Pursuit of Happyness, Elegy and Fame. David is the composer of BARK! The Musical. He is also a classical concert pianist with 8 cds commercially available. Together, we produced the hit musical BARK! that ran in Los Angeles for two years and has since been licensed across the country. BARK! tells the story of six dogs and their experiences for one day in Deena's Doggie Daycare. We have two dogs in our family: Massimo, an Italian greyhound who is 1 and 1/2 years and our Brother Wolf dog, Effie who is 4 years old.

Why the Owner Chose Albemarle Park, Asheville, NC, USA:
We fell in love with the charm of the city, the lively and excellent arts organizations, the panoramic vistas and the friendliness of the people-many of whom also moved here from somewhere else. The city is progressive and bubbling with excitement. We instantly fell in love with the Cherokee House the minute we walked through it's front door. The home is located in the best neighborhood in Asheville and one mile from downtown. One can go to the theater and out for drinks and dinner and then in three minutes return to our serene and beautiful home where its warm graciousness will embrace you with comfort and ease.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In compliance with city regulations, the Cherokee House (the whole house) can be rented on a monthly basis---any 30 day period or longer. For all questions, feel free to contact Mike at: thecherokeehouse@gmail.com or 828.333.3478
