Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bath Convenient In Town Home

Two story brick Georgian home built in 1926 with five bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths that can sleep up to 12 people. One bedroom with a king bed downstairs with a handicap accessible bath. Four bedrooms and two full baths upstairs. Master bedroom has a king bed and a full bath. Other bedrooms contain 2 queen beds and one with two twin beds. Each bedroom is large and it's own little retreat so family members have a comfortable place to get away and relax. The sofa in the living room also folds out to sleep an additional 2 people if needed. The home is tastefully decorated with vibrant colors and original artwork. There's a large backyard (unfenced) that provides ample room for cookouts and family get togethers. The kitchen is extremely functional and sunny along with being quite well stocked. The dining room seats 10 comfortably and we've fit 16 in for holiday dinners.

There's an outdoor seating area for 12 which includes an outdoor dining table and chairs for 6. We have a grill for cookouts as well.

The home is conveniently located in town and within walking distance of the village of Hazelwood. It's a 1 minute drive to downtown Waynesville or the golf courses at the Waynesville or Laurel Ridge Country Clubs and a 10 minute drive to Lake Junaluska. Asheville is a 30 minute drive east and The Great Smoky National Park a 30 minute drive west.

While it's an older home with all the charm and character that offers, we installed a new geothermal HVAC system in 2013. This keeps the house extremely comfortable and evenly heated or cooled. We also replaced most of the plumbing in 2014 and installed an instant hot water heater. This insures there's a continuous supply of hot water, even for the 10th shower along with good water pressure throughout the house.

About Dan Stringfield

This house is owned by Dan and Bernie. Dan grew up in this house and we purchased it from the estate after his parents passed. We live in San Diego, California for most of the year but get back to Waynesville as much as we can.

Dan Stringfield purchased this house in 2013

Why Dan Stringfield chose Smoky Mountains

Dan's grandparents built this house and his mother lived 80 of her 85 years in this house. After my parents passed, I wanted to keep the house because of the family connection to the house and a desire to ultimately retire in Waynesville to this house. For me, the idea of retiring to this house is life coming full circle. There's an old saying -- a man spends the first half of his life running away from home and the second half running back to it and that's certainly true for me. Bernie grew up in a small town in upstate New York. While didn't grow up in the mountains of North Carolina, the small town atmosphere of Waynesville is a return to his roots in a way as well.

What makes this house unique

This is a large comfortable home that's in town and convenient to everything. If you're looking for a remote mountainside cabin away from it all where you have to drive 30 minutes to get to a grocery store, this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking for a comfortable, historic home in a great small town in the mountains that's a few minutes drive from everything, our home is perfect.

We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at the Richeson house and, once again, we had a wonderful time. Six of us go for a girls' getaway this time every year. The house is a cozy comfortable place for us to stay and come home to after exploring Waynesville and Asheville. It is a beautiful time of year and a lovely area. The house is so well stocked, clean and everything we could hope for.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This place is a great gathering place. 10 of stayed and were very comfortable. The house is fully stocked with everything you might need. It was truely handicapped accessible. But the best part to me was how gracious the owner and property managers were. They were communicative and quick with response. We have already decided to return next year

Nostolgic Comfort nestled in the NC Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family recently evacuated Florida due to Hurricane Irma. Our group included 4 couples and family pets. We were so comfortable in this historic family home. It's conveniently located near shopping, a coffee shop and bakery (walking distance), and Main Street. It's also a quick 30-35 minute drive over to Asheville and hiking trails.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the home as a group from Minnesota on a motorcycle vacation. The house had everything we needed and plenty of room. When we weren't out on the bikes, we spent most of our time under the patio area. We would definitely stay here again!

What a great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly a find! Its large enough to give everyone their privacy and yet plenty of community space. It has thermal air conditioning which is a huge plus, after a long hike it was so nice to return to our cool home away from home. This house has everything you could possibly need, bring only your clothes; everything else is there. Also included is a house guide that we found most helpful, including honest restaurant reviews and things to do. The town of Waynesville is quite nice, small mountain town with a really nice downtown. The backyard is beautiful. A Weber gas grille was provided. Also the backyard has a shelter area from the sun with lovely rocking chairs , and a very nice table and chairs.. The house is well represented in the online pictures. If your plans are taking you to the Smokey Mountains then this house is for you. We give it our best rating for cleanliness, location and charm. (Well decorated with local art) Enjoy your trip!
