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 queen 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 a queen bed, a full bed 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.
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
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.
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.
Our company needed a centralized location for our technicians to stay for a few weeks. This home was the perfect solution, and Dan was so helpful in getting us set up. We would definitely book this home when we are in the area again!!
There were 6 women on this trip. This is our 2nd year back we love this place. We sat outside every night and had drinks and snacks. It is convenient to downtown waynesville, Ashville Hendersonville wonderful shopping and restaurants! We even ate in the dining room by candlelight one night! Highly recommend this house!!!
Our family of seven stayed for a week in this lovely home. We found the house met all our needs including having Wi-Fi access. We especially enjoyed the covered patio and large backyard for conversation and play. The kitchen was well equipped with all that was needed to prepare and cook our meals. It was nice to have the Guest Book with information and recommendations about the area. The maps and brochures were helpful as we planned our activities for the week. There was more than enough room in the home for our family to eat together at the large dining table, play games and rest comfortably every night. The 3 1/2 bathrooms made it very easy for us all to get ready for the day. The Waynesville Recreation Center is modern and up to date with two indoor pools that several of us enjoyed one morning. The house is centrally located allowing easy access to many attractions in the area. Dan and Sonya are friendly, courteous and helpful. We had a blast and recommend this home for anyone looking for a nice place to stay and make memories with their family and friends.
We were pleasantly surprised as we walked around the house and each room had a different delight to enjoy - beautiful artwork, a spacious dining room and living room areas, and an amazing backyard and covered patio area for enjoying the outdoors. We stayed for Annual Conference at Lake Junaluska and had a big family gathered to celebrate someone being ordained. It was great for the large family to be together and celebrate. Everything was very comfortable and well stocked. The only thing we would suggest changing is to upgrade the full sized beds to queen size beds. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
The home is beautiful and very spacious. Spent a long weekend there with great friends and we did enjoy! Great location and close to lots of other popular towns would definitely stay there again
This home was perfect for our family Thanksgiving!! I have always wanted to celebrate Thanksgiving in a house big enough to accommodate my entire family and this house was perfect. First time we were able to all sit down at the same table! Plenty of room for all of us and everything we needed!! Love all the antiques and history of the house!!
