While staying in my home, you can experience all that Asheville has to offer in a comfortable, clean and welcoming environment. Being located within 1 mile of Biltmore Village offers nearby restaurants, breweries and shopping while residing in a quiet, friendly residential area. Newly completed total renovation includes a natural gas-on demand-water heater for endless hot water, a gas stove and cook top for your culinary pleasure, and a gas furnace/AC and remote controlled gas logs in the living room fireplace to keep you comfortable. Hardwood floors throughout help control allergens. Our 3 bedrooms have queen pillow top mattresses and all cotton linens. The full bath has a marble walk in shower. All new stainless appliances in our fully equipped kitchen allow you to enjoy bounties from the Farmer's Market or local grocers when not taking advantage of Asheville's renowned restaurants. The front porch crosses the entire house with a view of Mount Pisgah and the large private back deck and fenced yard make you feel like you are in a tree house while enjoying the beautiful sunsets.The covered carport will keep you dry while packing in or out. We have Wifi and a nice area in the living room to use your computer, a flat screen TV and full sized washer and dryer.

Asheville is easy to navigate and our proximity to the 240 loop and US 40 make all things Asheville within a 10 minute drive. Enjoy restaurants, art galleries, shopping, music venues, health spas, hiking and biking, fly fishing, UNCA, the botanical gardens and of course the well known Biltmore House and gardens, Grove Park Inn and spa and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Harrah's Casino are about a one hour drive.

Ria Harris purchased this house in 2013

Why Ria Harris chose Oakley

Owning a second home in Asheville allows me the opportunity to enjoy both ends of our beautiful state.This is my home and not just an investment property. I love Asheville and spending time here and hope to share that with you.

What makes this house unique

My home has the character that older homes possess with the modern touches of a complete makeover. Main Street is safe, quiet, a mix of young and old residents and is convenient to any where in Asheville in minutes.

We really enjoyed this lovely home. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, with a location that makes getting into town or out to the mountains easy. There is a lot of attention to detail in the decorating that creates a relaxing atmosphere. The house is small but has a great flow. It worked well for our family, including 2 young adults. We especially enjoyed evenings on the back porch(there are even fun star lights to turn on at dusk). We are a cooking family and this house is well stocked! Everything we needed was there including an outside grill and charcoal. The owners sent very specific and helpful information/directions to make our late night arrival and stay go smoothly. Everyone in our party slept well and commented on the comfortable beds and sheets. This house is very well cared for. We look forward to returning!

Lovely house. Ms Harris is wonderful to work with and has a welcoming spirit.

The house is very nice and in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood. The house is ideally located close to downtown and Hendersonville road. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and will be going back. So grateful for Ms. Harris and her property.

Meticulously maintained rental close to Asheville's amenities.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well-equipped rental close to Asheville's downtown, Biltmore Village and Estate.

The interior is bright and cozy yet spacious with an updated kitchen featuring every amenity needed to cook meals for a big family. The decor is eclectic, the furniture comfortable (beds included) and the deck in excellent repair with a nice backyard.

Best of all, Ria is a delight.

The house was great

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was clean and we didn't need to buy anything except some food. The access to the downtown area and the Biltmore were great, only a 5-15min. drive. Thank you again and we will most certainly be back in the future

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to praise a place that I would like to secretly keep for my own, but I will share our experience at this home! It was just as stated from other reviews, very well kept and super clean, I can attest that I am a clean freak and it met my standards top notch! It was comfortable and felt so much like home I hated to leave! Great instructions given for helping you feel comfortable while there. It was so close to Biltmore and the Biltmore village just down the hill from the home, the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful! I have nothing negative to say about it all, enjoy your stay here and happy exploring Asheville! Thanks Ria for a wonderful place to come to, we will come again in the future and hope to stay at your wonderful home away from home a little longer next time, so much to do so little time!

Ria's house was a perfect place to stay at for our trip to Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

The house that we stayed at was great! We all enjoyed the look of the place, and the property itself was nice as well. Having access to things like a grill, a deck, washer/dryer, etc., makes you realize how much you miss out on staying at a hotel. The location was great; close to the Biltmore and downtown, and in a nice neighborhood. The owner, Ria, was easy to work with over email and made some great suggestions to make our visit even better. The next time I visit Asheville, I'll be looking to see if this house is available again.
