Property description

Drover's Way lives in a 100 year old home in downtown Asheville, a stone's throw from High Five Coffee Shop, Whole Foods, Trader Joes and Moog Music. You can't beat the location! A few blocks from the heart of the Central Business District, yet offers the convenience of parking in our private lot right behind the house.

Amenities include a queen Tempurpedic bed, private bath with glass shower, spacious bedroom, 40' smart TV, free wireless internet, separate room with den, sofa, dining area and Ikea kitchenette, Charter TV and central AC and heat. The den/kitchenette is separated by a door from the bedroom to allow maximum flexibility. The sofa can open up into a bed as well and has a new memory foam mattress.

The den has pocket windows that drop into the wall - a very interesting feature we'd never seen before, so we spent time and money on having them all restored to keep the character of the house intact.

Owners Lynne and Steve are available to offer suggestions for your vacation and help arrange goodies for special occasions - just ask! Don't worry though - you will have all the privacy you need. And don't miss our Insiders Guide (aka 'the skinny') on our website - Steve and I made that just for our guests (and take look at our blog on the website:www.ashevilleurbannest.com).

WE DO NOT LIST ON CRAIGSLIST, SO IF YOU SEE OUR APARTMENT THERE, IT'S A SCAM. PLEASE FLAG.

Walk to restaurants, music venues, Civic Center, Diana Wortham, Asheville Art Museum and many shops and restaurants. Popular coffee shop/hang out is a few hundred yards away - Hi Five. If you want to explore the Victorian architecture of Montford, cross the street and take a walk! There is a great new restaurant a few minutes away in Montford - Chiesa, that is a quick walk. Also, the new Reed Creek Greenway starts just past FIve Points Diner, and is a lovely bike ride or walk that takes you along the creek to the Botanical Gardens and UNCA.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Lynne Harty is a professional photographer and her husband, Steve Cohen, is a musician and he manages other musicians for a living. They both moved to Asheville for the laid back, small progressive town lifestyle and have loved it from the moment they arrived.

Why the Owner Chose Five Points, Asheville, NC, USA:
We love the proximity to downtown Asheville, being walking distance to everything, while still having the luxury of privacy and convenient parking spaces. Having a parking space in downtown Asheville is a big deal! The house is loaded with the character only old houses offer, and renovating it continues to be an act of love and hard work. Drover's Way is 1/2 mile down the hill from our other property, the Asheville Urban Nest. Staying downtown gives you the best of all worlds - great restaurants, shops, music venues and galleries, while a 30 minute car ride has you on top of a mountain with amazing views!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love being a few minutes walk to High Five Coffee, Greenlife and Trader Joes, as well as just down the hill from all that central downtown has to offer. The house has some very cool features too - such as the pocket windows in the Drover's Way apartment that sink down into the wall vs. up! We like to sit on our big front porch and people watch as we enjoy our lunch during the week days. Meeting our guests has been fun as well, as we love to play tour guide. Festivals such as the Lexington Arts Festival and Downtown After Five are centered right at the Lexington bridge two blocks away so it couldn't be any more convenient to walk to those. See the horse and buggy go past our house just as the pigs and sheep did when Broadway was called the Drover's Rd. The Reed Creek Greenway is just around the corner, which is a new bike/walking path between Five Points and UNCA that is a very pleasant way to explore this part of Asheville. We are on the edge of Montford, and old neighborhood full of Victorian architecture, B&B's and several neighborhood restaurants within a 5 minute walk - Chiesa, Nine Mile and Todd's Tasties. Montford is a nice area to explore on food or by bike. The UNCA campus and the Asheville Botanical Gardens are less than a mile away as well.
