Owner info

About the owner: I moved from Northern California after the earthquake in 1989 and have happily resided in Buncombe county since. I have enjoyed watching the Asheville scene change and love the people, geography and 'North Carolina state of mind'. Recently my children have left the house which allows me to travel and spend more time in my garden. The listed house to both Black Mountain and Asheville.

Why the Owner Chose Swannanoa, NC, USA:
This property is surrounded by trees in a quiet cove close to Black Mountain and Asheville. I have lived in a house with the same design and floor plan close by since 2006. Earlier this year I purchased the rental house from a retired couple who had enjoyed it as a vacation home for 23 years. I love living in the trees!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is furnished for comfort and relaxation. The large deck provides an extra living space complete with porch swing, rocking chairs, picnic table and grill. The rough beamed living room beautifully reflects lots of natural light and is furnished with comfortable recliners, couch and woodstove with a blower.
