Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I always wanted to have a go at restoration and spent tons of time and $$$ restoring this historic brick building which is the oldest in town that still has the original front, door, windows and brick at the "epicenter" (LOL) of Old Fort. We even operated a restaurant with live music (Bob on the guitar) for awhile. A genuine small old town. Victorian houses, 2 museums and a charming little park on the Mill Creek river. Small town for sure but minutes from all the great attractions in and around Asheville.

Why the Owner Chose Old Fort, NC, USA:
Very reasonably priced alternative to expensive nearby Asheville without sacrificing comfort. Asheville, the Great Smoky Mt. National Park, Blue Ridge Pkwy. Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn and the very resurgent hip Asheville all an easy 20 min. drive. Cleaner than clean and all newly remodeled in 2015. 500 SF -- much bigger than any motel room. Guests always comment that it is bigger and nicer than they expected.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Central location just blocks off I-40 makes the apt. particularly suited to exploring all of western N. Carolina and away from the Asheville traffic. Quite close to all the favorite destinations. A 20 min. drive will get you most anywhere. We are always nearby for any help or questions. You might even be lucky enough to see the Circus Train pass by. You will know it (or some other special train) is coming by the folks lined up to watch it as it passes.
