Overview

About the property

2/3 bedroom in rural setting 3 miles from downtown

Chestnut Hill is a two/three bedroom home located in a country setting yet only 3 miles from downtown. It is a short ride to everything you want to do in the Asheville area, including wonderful dining, gorgeous hiking, and antiquing. The Biltmore estate is 15 minutes away. After a day of sight seeing and adventure, Chestnut Hill is a great place to call home. Here you can cook a meal in the fully appointed large kitchen, watch TV, go on the internet, or just relax.

Our home has a large living room with comfy leather couches, large dining area with seating for 6, a fully equipped kitchen and a tiled bath with a tub/shower combination. The entire home has hardwood floors and is professionally decorated. The walls are decorated with antique theatre posters

The large master bedroom suite has a queen size bed with a pillowtop mattress and a 1/2 bath. The attached sitting room (can be used as a third bedroom) has a daybed with trundle that can be pulled out for two twin beds and a flat screen tv. It also has a door to the outside porch.

The large second bedroom also has a queen size bed with sliders going to the outside porch

The home has plenty of parking, is located on fenced land, and is a great place to unwind after a day exploring Asheville or hiking nearby mountain trails. The grounds are full of organically grown fruit trees, nuts, berries and grapes. If you are visiting when they are ripe you are welcome to enjoy them. There is an attached apartment that is partially beneath the house.

Asheville boasts activities which will satisfy all in your travel party. Hiking trails and outdoor activities such as horseback riding, canoeing, and whitewater rafting are within easy driving distance. Skiing and a zipline tour are within a 20 minute drive. For the shopper in your group, Asheville has a host of antique shops, boutiques, art galleries,and crafts. Evening activities include diverse dining options, movies, live theatre, live music, or just walking through Asheville's energetic downtown filled with street performers and art. The Biltmore estate is breathtaking in summer and glorious when decorated for Christmas. Chimney Rock Park is worth the 20 minute drive. Wonderful hiking and beautiful views await you in every direction. A drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway in autumn highlights the beautiful peak colors. There are many festivals throughout the year for the whole family.

About Marilyn Del Vecchio

We are a family owned and operated property. We have three places in Asheville and are proud of our warm and friendly vacation homes.

Marilyn Del Vecchio purchased this house in 2010

Why Marilyn Del Vecchio chose Smoky Mountains

We bought this property because our children live in Asheville . My son owns Alternative Allergy Solutions in Asheville specializing in acupuncture and allergies. My daughter is a playwright and actress and artistic associate of The Magnetic Theatre in Asheville

What makes this house unique

The numerous fruit trees, berry bushes and nut trees grown organically on the property by our son are wonderful. We are also only 3 miles from downtown although in a rural setting

Pet friendly, convenient to downtown, and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our weekend in Asheville with friends. It was convenient to catch an Uber for an evening out. The fenced-in front yard was great for my dog. The owner's instructions were clear & easy to follow for how to enter, leave, and check-out. Marilyn was wonderful to work with. The house was clean, well maintained, and very spacious. We sat outside one evening and enjoyed the country feeling. We'd love to come back when the bushes are in bloom and for a longer stay. We didn't use the kitchen to cook, but it had the things we would have needed. I highly recommend this home and the owner. We will stay here again.

Great weekend, and convenient location!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our short weekend! We were in town for my daughter's dance competition. It was less than 10 minutes away from downtown. The home was super clean, and very well kept!! Thank you for opening up you lovely home to us. Next time we are back in Asheville for overnights we will definitely stay again.
