About the Property

Large Front Yard, 3 Bed, 2.5 Bath, 2000 Sq. Ft., Dog Friendly

Mike and David are excited to offer you the perfect home for your family and friends to vacation in Asheville.

Only a 15 minute walk to downtown, Albemarle Park is like no other district in Asheville. You realize it is a very special place as soon as you pass the old gate house entrance. The lush neighborhood is filled with old homes, winding streets and enormous trees. For those exploring Asheville in the late 19th century, Albemarle Park was created as an alternative to the big hotel experience--a well designed and planned resort neighborhood. Today the 42 structures within the quarter are enjoyed by home owners, renters and visitors - young and old.

Historic on the outside and contemporary within, Cherokee House is a 2000 sq ft handsome grey stucco home with a large flat front yard built in 1925. Along the front porch, a custom stacked stone ring wall encloses two gardens and a cedar tree. Comfortable patio furniture adorns the porch along with a teak table for outdoor dining. Enjoy the covered sitting area and outdoor grill in the back yard. The home has brand new central air and heat, 2 zones--upstairs and downstairs. A new Kohler whole-house generator makes certain that when the electricity goes out in the neighborhood, yours does not.

The interior is clean and contemporary. There are 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, living room, tv room, dining room and basement. French doors open out to the front porch from both living room and dining rooms. There is high-speed internet throughout the home.

The bedrooms are on the 2nd floor. The Master bedroom has a King size bed, flat screen TV and its own bright bathroom. A private wood deck accoutered with lounges, table and umbrella, is attached to the Master bedroom. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, dresser and smart TV. The 3rd bedroom has a queen size bed and dresser. A full bath in the hallway is shared by the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. There is a large selection of comforters and sheets and an assortment of pillows.

The main floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, intimate dining room, elegant living room and modern gas fireplace. The relaxing TV room includes an automatic reclining sofa and 54 inch LED smart TV - Charter Cable, Pandora music & Neflix included. The basement contains the washer and dryer. A private two-car parking pad sits behind the house. Two adult and a kid's bicycle 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 25 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 3 and our Brother Wolf dog, Effie who is 6.

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:
Things to do at-a-glance: • Enjoy the timeless quality of Albemarle Park and its turn of the century Arts & Crafts architectural style • Go for a walk and get lost under the green canopy • Take the bikes around Asheville • Explore everything area has to offer; Biltmore Estate, exquisite eateries & nightlife, shopping, the Blue Ridge Parkway, National Parks and Forests, & outdoor sports and festivals
