About the Property

The Nauhaus is a modern eco-hOMe, with prime natural setting in W AVL

This modern eco-hOMe is the perfect place to enjoy your time in Asheville! It is the first certified Hempcrete home in America! We are walking distance to a Greenway and bustling Haywood Rd in W AVL, and a short drive to all the major attractions!.

Modern 2 Bedroom hOMe with private entrance in Eco-Fabulous Home called the Nauhaus ((website hidden)), which was designed as a model for urban sustainability.
It features passive solar energy, a living roof, and hemp-crete walls which make it naturally cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and keeps the space extra quiet.
Come experience the next level of 'Green Living' in one of America's first-ever HEMP Homes!! Learn more about the design by Googling 'Nauhaus Institute'.

The home has 2 bedrooms; one with a queen size bed and the other with a queen size organic futon bed, with decks off both bedrooms overlooking the backyard with fire pit, full of trees and wildlife such as birds, squirrels, rabbits, hawks, and occasional fox and deer. A year round creek with hobbit style bridge, connects to nature trail, leading to the Hominy Creek Greenway.

The home also has a beautiful tiled bathroom, with bathtub and shower, an open design large living room boasting a cathedral ceiling, with sitting area and fully equipped kitchen, also a dinner table, and an extra sleeping area in the loft in case you have children or additional guests, tall french doors opening outside that provide lots of sunlight and fresh air during the day, and a private front porch with table and chairs for outdoor dining and enjoying drinks of your choice.

Complete with all the amenities of home; all within a rustic setting, surrounded by nature, with a creek running through the backyard, as well as close access to the Greenway trail along the Hominy Creek (river) , and walking distance from Haywood Road / West Asheville Village, and 5 mi to both downtown Ashe-ville and the Biltmore Estate and Village.

We are on a very quiet street, just a few houses down from the West Asheville Park. and a fifteen minute walk to the Farmer's market, health food store, local bakery, coffee shop, music venues, yoga studios, and amazing restaurants all within a mile!
This location is perfect!!

Sleeps up to 5, with 1 Queen size bed in the master bedroom, 1 queen size bed in the room downstairs, as well as sleeping area in the loft, or living room. Children and babies welcome, we have plenty of toddler gear to utilize during your stay.

We are a friendly and conscious young family with a baby who live closeby. We love hosting and providing brochures, ideas, and tips about local attractions.

Asheville loves LOCAL.. and so do we, so we provide local organic Silvermoon chocolates, a craft microbrew or two, and sometimes Buchi kombucha upon your arrival!

You may enjoy sitting on the front porch, walking to the neighborhood park, bustling Haywood Rd., or the adjoining walking trail.

We are here to support your travels and stay with us in case you need anything.
The NauHaus is a quiet and private space for you to rest without disruption.

Laundry facilities are available, with detergent provided.

2 off street parking spots (plenty of space on our quiet street to park too).
Easy access off I-40, I-240, and I-26

Many blessings,
JahSun, Lizzy, and Baby Sophia

Guest Access

Guests have access to their fully furnished home, which is a unique and dynamic hemp-crete dwelling. The front porch is ideal for enjoying beautiful mountain weather. The parking area is off road in gravel area, and there are steps leading to the front porch. Also, there is a backyard, and bridge crossing the creek with connected walking path.

Interaction with Guests

I enjoy greeting our guests upon arrival.
And, will give a walkthrough of the home when available. I have many recommendations, and ideas of activities and restaurants in the area. I am then readily available via text or phone call, as needed. We live in a home close by, so are easily accessible.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is very family friendly. There are often families walking with children and pets. The West Asheville Park is a short 3 minute walk at the end of our street. And, the bustling Haywood Rd is a convenient 15 minute walk through the park and down residential Vermont Ave.

Getting around

There is public transit on Haywood Rd, and I believe Brevard Rd if needed. We offer off street parking close to our home. The Asheville Airport is only about a 15 minute drive from our place. There is a taxi service, and car rentals are available at the airport and in town if needed. I will also Be driving for Uber very soon, so may request my services if needed.

Other Things to Note

We will match the rate of any comparable property in the Asheville area, based on location and quality.

Why the Owner Chose Morningside Park, Asheville, NC, USA:
Setting the standard for residential homes! The Nauhaus is the first Hempcrete Home in America, and is setting the standard for what is possible in terms of alternative energy and building. Complete with all the modern amenities of home; within a rustic setting, surrounded by nature, with a creek running through the backyard, as well as close access to the Greenway trail along the Hominy Creek (river) , and walking distance from Haywood Road / West Asheville Village, and 5 mi to both downtown Ashe-ville and the Biltmore Estate and Village. Asheville has proven to attract the most genuine, unique, and authentic people we have ever met. We love our Community, and are so grateful to have relocated here from the West Coast. It is an amazing place to raise a child, as we are quickly finding out.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
All the above reasons, and the following: We love being so close to all major attractions, shopping, and restaurants, yet be able to come home to such a peaceful abode nestled in the trees, with a flowing creek in our backyard, and a trail with 'hobbit' style bridge across the creek, through the woods, and to the Hominy Creek Greenway. Also, love sitting outside on the back deck or porch, or the front porch with cushioned furniture with candlelight listening to nature's orchestra, watching the fireflies, and on a clear night the majestic starlit sky!
