GRAND OPENING - Unique Home on Stilts in Hip West Asheville – Minutes from Downtown

Welcome to Grandview Retreat!


As soon as I saw this home, positioned high in the air on stilts, I was intrigued. When I opened the front door and saw the gorgeous views of the River Arts District, downtown and the Blue Ridge Mountains beyond, I was sold.

The house is in a lovely neighborhood and just minutes away from great restaurants in West Asheville and downtown.


I love this house and have taken great care to make it comfortable and inviting for you. This 1600 square foot home has been carefully decorated for your enjoyment. There are a collection of photos from a local artist and unique furnishings and artwork from many local Asheville merchants.

There is a relaxing family room to enjoy time with your friends or family. The open kitchen is perfect if you decide to stay in for the evening. The expansive deck has a comfortable seating area, a dining area and grill. The view has to be seen to be believed. If you need a few minutes to yourself, there is a cozy den for you to curl up and read a book.

There are three bedrooms and two full baths upstairs. Curl up on your Sealy pillow top mattress and luxuriate in silky Cuddledown sheets.

The master suite has a queen size bed and shower/tub combination. The master bedroom has beautiful long range views.

The other two bedrooms share a bathroom. One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other bedroom has two twin size beds.


This neighborhood is full of the quirky charm that is part of what makes Asheville so unique. There is a mix of houses: old ones, new ones, large homes and small homes. Many are painted in fun colors. There is a great house around the corner that is purple with green trim. In some places in would be out of place, but in West Asheville, it fits right in.

West Asheville has many wonderful and unique restaurants, bars and stores which you will enjoy. However, it is also just five minutes away from both the River Arts District (home to an astonishing array of artist galleries and some of Asheville’s best restaurants) as well as downtown Asheville.


This place is perfect for an individual or couple who want a comfortable, welcoming place for their extended stay in Asheville. (No partying please—I like my neighbors!)

I look forward to hosting you soon!

About Julie Obenauer

I fell in love with Asheville on my very first visit. I love the people, the unique character, the food and the beauty of the mountains.

Food is my hobby – I love to eat, cook, read about food and talk about food. That makes Asheville pretty much nirvana for me. Bon Appetit magazine recently called Asheville “the best small city to eat and drink right now”.

There are so many great places to eat and drink here that you will never want to leave. I am excited to share my home with you so you can experience all charm of this special city.

Julie Obenauer purchased this house in 2014

Beautiful home, with great view of Asheville and the mountains, and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

The house at 32 Grandview was very well appointed, with furnishings tastefully done, back deck with grill, and high end kitchen appliances and cooking items. The house appears well kept and maintained. The location is excellent, about 5 minutes to the River Arts District, and for tennis players, about 10 minutes to the Asheville Racquet Club (downtown). Communication with the owner was done via email or phone text, and all problems (which were minor) were quickly resolved.

The house has three bedrooms upstairs, plus a pull out couch downstairs, which made it ideal for our family reunions in October and at Christmas.

We intend to come back, as the time period we rented was great, and the owner was very helpful. She provided advice as to restaurants, attractions, and even a gift certificate to one of the premier restaurants downtown.

Modern, Upscale Home with Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay August of 2017 was fantastic! We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises, watching the kayakers on the river, and, best of all, the beautiful lights of downtown Asheville at night. First-rate accommodations (excellent mattress) and the owner was prompt when responding to our questions. The only drawback is the "funky" neighborhood. But then, you are staying in West Asheville -- home of many artists, musicians and, surprisingly, great restaurants! Our favorites included The Admiral, Owl Bakery, Biscuit Head, and White Duck Taco. Favorite downtown foodie places include Posana, Curate, Chocolate Fetish, and Battery Park Champagne Bar and Used Books. We would definitely stay here again!

Love the house! Love the location! Love the View!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property in tip top shape. Julie has outfitted the house very thoughtfully. The bedding and linens are as nice as you would put in your own home. If for any reason you tired of eating out, the kitchen has every thing you would need to prepare and serve a meal.

West Asheville has great restaurants and a vibrant arts community. The month flew by...I can't wait to go back next year!!!!

Amazing location Awesome Hostess

  • 5 of 5

Julie is an amazing hostess and left information on local products, Farmers Market, grocery stores and restaurants for us. We went to almost all the restaurants and enjoyed every one of them taking visiting friends and family to them as well. The kitchen is well-appointed with all of the equipment you would need including beautiful wine glasses. The deck with it's view is lovely and I enjoyed watching the skate park that is across the river as well as the antique shop activity again across the river and the trains. We found the house to be exactly as pictured on vbro. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Car: necessary

West Asheville is full of unique restaurants, bars and shops. Some of my favorite restaurants include Biscuit Head, King Daddy's and The Admiral.

After you explore West Asheville, you can head downtown or to the River Arts District. Both are just a few minutes away. Before you explore the multitude of galleries in the River Arts District, you should stop at The White Duck Taco shop to get a few tacos. Some of my favorites are the Bangkok shrimp taco, the lamb gyro taco and the fish taco. The River Arts District is also home to some of my favorite dinner spots, The Junction and The Bull and The Beggar.

The culinary possibilities await you!
