Our family runs a local heating and air business. The owners of this home told us it was for sale when we came over to service the air conditioner. Located in a quiet downtown neighborhood, it is the perfect blend of convenience, comfort and relaxing atmosphere. We were excited to take on the challenge of updating it and making it into a place we could enjoy and share with family and friends. Now we are happy to be sharing it with you!
The home is a perfect family getaway, and it's great for dogs. There is a small fenced area in the back yard for them. The back yard is absolutely gorgeous because the former owner was a master gardener. It seems as though there is always something in bloom throughout spring, summer and fall.
The quiet neighborhood is great for walking, and you can easily get downtown with sidewalks all the way. Check out the shopping, dining and scenery as you walk down Main Street. Be sure to check out The Proper Pot, a great kitchen store that also sells wine, cheese and other yummy snacks. Another favorite is Main Street Ltd., a great gift shop right next to Quotations Cafe which is known for the occasional patronage of Steve Martin, a seasonal Brevard resident. Of course, Brevard is home to the renowned Brevard Music Center, and is also host to annual festivals including the White Squirrel Festival every Memorial Day Weekend, great 4th of July festivals, the Mountain Song Festival every September, and lots of fun activities on Halloween (Brevard is in Transylvania County, after all).
It's a quick drive to the Porter Center, which is the performing arts venue for Brevard College. We are five minutes from the Brevard Music Center, home of the Mountain Song Festival and many other exciting musical events throughout the season. You can get to Pisgah National Forest in about ten minutes, the DuPont State Forest is about a 20 minute drive, and it takes about 30 minutes to get to the beautiful Gorges State Park. Asheville and Hendersonville are both about 40 minutes away, and both feature lots of attractions if you want to take a day trip or two.
Our property is managed by Pete Key Properties, a local real estate firm with lots of their own rentals. They are here to help and they can answer any questions you may have about the area and about booking.
We hope you enjoy our mountain getaway as much as we do, and thanks so much for choosing us! Please no cats in the house, as the owners are allergic. Please bring a crate if you leave your pet alone in the house.
Janet and Danny
