Secluded yet close to everything. Five minutes from restaurants, grocery, etc. yet surrounded by trees with great mountain views. New wood and tile floors, updated kitchen all 2018; master bath redone 2016. Nicely furnished; great combination of elegant living in a wonderful natural setting in South Asheville.

The space
Please note that we have a property caretaker living in a downstairs unit, so there will be others at the property, including dogs, during your stay. There are no shared living spaces; you park in the garage and enter the home up a flight of interior stairs connected to the garage; they park in the other garage bay and enter the downstairs separately. You have the private upper deck; they have their own private lower deck. Once you venture out into the yard, that space is shared. Upstairs, you'll basically never hear anyone downstairs. They will occasionally hear your footsteps above them.

We have a steep paved driveway that is about 100 yards long, with a sharp turn at the end. It does NOT require 4-wheel drive or any special vehicle. We've had probably 150 guests visit us in three years, and several were a bit nervous on their first trip up, but all made it up without incident. For this reason, it is certainly best if you can make your initial arrival in daylight hours.

Where you’ll be

Asheville, North Carolina, United States

Our home is just a few hundred yards outside the southern city limits of Asheville, about 15 minutes from Biltmore and downtown. We have only one visible neighbor. Our home is basically halfway up a small mountain; you'll drive past homes in the neighborhood as you approach our home, but once you turn up the mountain a short distance, you'll see only our one neighbor. And from Spring through Fall, you'll only see that home as you drive up our steep driveway. In the winter, that home is visible about 100 yards away from parts of our deck and inside one side of our house.
There are occasional bear sightings in our neighborhood; this is true of a number of areas in and around Asheville. Be careful and realize they're not pets, but generally they keep their distance and you should keep yours. Do not leave any trash outside, since this attracts them.

Smoking is not permitted in the house or anywhere on the property.

Retired; moved to California in early 2020, after living in Asheville since 2014. Kim and I previously owned bookstores in Texas and Colorado after earlier careers, and we're both easy going and happy to help you navigate the area, but also happy to let you have your freedom. We like to spend time with our dogs, listen to music, cook, etc.
