Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Jeff and Martha Nelson, both graduates from nearby Warren Wilson College, have lived in Black Mountain for over 20 years. Together they designed and built Kitzuma Cottage as a place where folks can come to enjoy the mountains and discover the beauty of the area as well as all that this area has to offer as a haven for all arts, music, food lovers, and outdoor enthusiasts. Martha's pottery studio is located adjacent to the Cottage. She teaches pottery in her fully equipped studio with four wheels and both gas and electric kilns. While Martha enjoys keeping her hands in dirt and clay on a small scale, Jeff works with the earth on a larger scale. His business, Riverrock Construction, is a company specializing in boulder retaining wall construction, excavation, site development, foundation and septic systems. Our two daughters, Emma and Lucy, grew up here in the Swannanoa Valley enjoying the hiking, biking, boating and the music and art of the area. We know that you will enjoy it too!
Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
We purchased the lot on which Kitzuma Cottage is built in 2006 originally planning to build a larger home. In 2015 we decided to build a vacation property instead. We have lived in and loved this area so much over the past thirty years we wanted to build a place where others can come and discover it too! Being completely involved from start to finish is really a dream come true for us.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
In designing and building Kitzuma Cottage we kept in mind what makes a vacation home special for us. The house has an open living, kitchen and dining room area which allows for great together time while dining and relaxing. Location, location, location allows for the most fun! Being conveniently located to biking trails, hiking trails, as well as, art galleries, restaurants, and shops Kitzuma Cottage can satisfy everyone's tastes. Jeff is a biking enthusiast and Martha loves pottery and yoga and we located and designed the house with these activities in mind. We love living outside the busier city of Asheville but close enough to enjoy the additional restaurants and businesses that are only a 15 minute drive away. Black Mountain is a gem and we know that during your visit you will discover a love of Black Mountain too! Please note that our cottage is in a semi-rural area close to a scenic railway and light sleepers need to know that there is an evening and early morning train.
