NOTES: This property changed to being only available for monthly rental (due to City of Asheville policy changes)>. However, I am willing to block out a month for some stays where guests know they will not be using the entire time (less wear and tear, etc) so please contact me for more information.
ALREADY BOOKING UP MONTHLY for 2019 - but I do have another rental option so email me if your dates aren't available.
Here is a description:
Avoid downtown parking stress by choosing this 2 BR/1BA stand alone house, which sits on a quiet 1/2 acre lot in the Chestnut Hills historic area. It was originally built in the 1950's as a caretaker cottage for the 6 unit Victorian apartment house in front. It can be accessed from the main driveway to the property or directly from the private alleyway behind (shared with 4 homes - including Servanthood House meditation center - very quiet and peaceful neighbors). Since this home is free-standing, there are no other tenants above or below you - making it a quiet space, in a serene spot with large trees.
This is truly an awesome location for enjoying all that Asheville offers! The neighborhood is one of historic homes, mostly built around 1920s or earlier, with several award winning bed-and-breakfasts within a block radius. You can walk to downtown from here (about 1/2 mile away ) or get an Uber ride for around $5. There are also several wonderful restaurants right here in the a full selection of grocery within a couple of blocks ("Greenlife"/Whole Foods, Trader'Joe's and Harris Teeter about 1-1/2 block). Asheville YOGA Center is 2 short blocks away so it's a great place to stay for their retreats! With all that is so close-by, you don't even need your car in this location.
The home is fully furnished and comfortably decorated. Hardwood floors make for charming space and easy care. Each bedroom has a queen bed, with bed linens included. Bath has been updated with vanity and storage. Kitchen is very large and was updated a few years ago with maple cabinets and full appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, over-the-range microwave, disposal), and all basic dishes, utensils, pots, pans are included - as well as coffee maker, toaster, crock pot, hand mixer, blender...The house has Central AC - with brand new HVAC in Fall 2015 (not all rentals in the area have central AC due to age of homes).
Comfortable living room has nice sleeper sofa and other furnishings, plus 40" flat panel HDTV (another 32" flat panel tv in one of the bedrooms). There is one dedicated parking space in front of house for convenience, another space in back of house (adjacent to alley), and plenty of on-street parking in front of main house. Coin washer and dryer on premises in basement of apartment building (about 100 feet away).
We do request that you respect the generally quiet atmosphere of the location and surroundings - no large or loud parties, please. No Smoking.
