Large room downstairs with queen bed, sitting area with full-size foldout sofa, half bath, electric fireplace and walk out to patio with firepit and chairs.

The kitchen just received a new stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, popcorn maker, crockpot, blender, and more. We are always improving for your comfort. This is city water, so pressure and supply are totally reliable. There are plenty of plates, glasses, cooking vessels and utensils, dish soap/detergent, towels and paper towels, placemats, etc. There are ceiling fans in all rooms, five window air-conditioners, but the evenings are always cool in the mountains. The two full bathrooms have all the towels needed, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and toilet paper. An additional half bath in lower level, too. Living room has a sofa, loveseat, chair and large ottoman, cable flat-screen T.V, wi-fi, and free Netflix account you may use.

There is a portable crib and highchair, stroller, and baby-gate. Upper deck has a gate on it, too. Please do not leave children unattended. Furnishings are very clean and comfortable, plus we continue to add key pieces for their interesting, eclectic nature, such as the candlestick tables and lamps, a bureau/wardrobe with a surprising feature in one of the drawers, a blast-from-the-past bureau with original sales brochure, a funky framed collection of nutritional trading cards, a cute diorama in the hallway, and more.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Linda Lazar Curatolo is a writer and web developer from Detroit who fell in love with Asheville, like everyone else who visits. She achieved her dream of purchasing a vacation home in the Blue Ridge Mountains after visiting for many years.
Why the Owner Chose Asheville, NC, USA:
This is the perfect location to absorb all that Asheville has to offer. It's walkable to hiking trails but close to food, art, music, shopping, brewing, history and culture. Even gems such as Biltmore Estate, Black Mountain, Lake Lure, waterfalls and national parks are within a short drive! The Blue Ridge Parkway is around the corner, and the Mountain to Sea Trail which connects with many other trails is within walking distance to the house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Excellent connectivity, for cell phone and internet service. The view of the mountains from the back of the house, and the view of the woods in any direction is beautiful and soothing. Only one neighbor is nearby and unobtrusive to the privacy this neighborhood offers. If you are a hiker, biker or even a birdwatcher this is an amazing location, but not isolated from the city conveniences. You can walk to the trails off the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is the road next to yours, yet drive to top destinations such as the Biltmore Estate, Funky West Asheville, Downtown Asheville and even Black Mountain in minutes. The close proximity to the major expressways, but far enough to enjoy peace and quiet in a wooded setting, is probably one of the best combinations you could hope for in the area.
