Our 'butterscotch' cottage is a peaceful hidden gem located in the heart of Asheville. Beautiful high ceilings and the original tall diamond-paned glass windows fill the historic 2-BR/1-Bath cottage with sunshine. Outside offers a lush evergreen private porch and patio. Driveway off-street parking space is tucked alongside the house in this safe and quiet neighborhood.
The house has new central heat and air, all new appliances, washer/dryer, side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, disposal, range, microwave, gas grill. There is outdoor lighting on the patio and exterior furniture for sitting or dining.
An historical 1911 cottage, it was once owned by the Thomas Wolfe family. The location is ideal for walking to downtown restaurants, grocery stores, night life, and shopping. Quiet brick sidewalks lined with honeysuckle and hollyhocks take you along a tranquil avenue to the vitality of Asheville’s cosmopolitan downtown – a 4-block walk -- see map in our photos.
While one is exploring the animated downtown another could play golf at the famous Victorian Grove Park Inn Golf Club less than 2 miles away– or fly fish in the idyllic mountain rivers within an hour’s drive.
We have greatly enjoyed sharing the open floor plan in the kitchen/dining/living area. The space is perfect for small dinner gatherings. We've loved sitting at the granite countertop sharing morning pastries from the nearby bakery.
There are two cheerful private bedrooms. The 'yellow' room has a queen-sized bed and the 'aqua' room has a daybed that makes into a king. Even the living room sofa makes into a double bed if needed.
Four to five people can easily gather around the heart of the house at the granite countertop for easy meals from Trader Joes or delivered from many top local restaurants by Valet Gourmet. But the grill and kitchen also allow you to cook for yourselves.
The completely private back patio has a gas grill. Sculptural barstools like those at the River Arts District make good perches for listening to birds while enjoying morning coffee or a cool drink in the shade at the outside bar.
Children are welcome and a dog will be considered.
The full kitchen is elegantly and functionally outfitted for enjoyment by our guests. There is a full bath with tub and shower. Mirrors in bedrooms allow a couple to share efficiently.
Hi-speed wireless internet/Cable TV.

Why the Owner Chose Chestnut Hills, Asheville, NC, USA:
We like to be able to walk to dinner, the grocery, and around the neighborhood. We hardly ever use the car once we get to Asheville.
