My historic home was built 100 years ago and is fully and beautifully renovated. It's located just 1/2 mile from the heart of downtown Asheville.
The house is uniquely situated: neighboring houses are quite a good distance away and there are lots of trees and greenery outside, so the setting is very natural, but still just a short walk to downtown.
You'll be renting the first floor of the home, a 900 square foot apartment. I live upstairs, and have a separate entrance.
MAIN LIVING AREA:
-800 square feet with an open, urban loft feel
-sleek, uncluttered, minimalist decor
-queen size Tempur Pedic bed with very nice linens
-lots of sunlight, trees and greenery all around
- expanded cable TV
-microwave, toaster oven, small fridge
-coffee maker, electric kettle
-organic coffee and cream provided
-sink, counter top, small dining table
-all utensils, ice bucket which I fill upon request
-full bath, clean, updated
-plenty of nice towels provided
-good water pressure
- all water from sinks and shower is on a house filtration system: great for drinking, easy on you skin when bathing
-blow dryer provided
-large storage closet for your belongings
-extremely quiet, efficient ductless central AC/heat
-iron and ironing pad
-private, sunny covered porch
-an easy 1/2 mile walk to the heart of downtown
-2 minute walk to the city's nicest tailgate farmers' market (Saturday mornings, April-November)
-** PLEASE NOTE: THE STAIRS FROM THE STREET UP TO THE APARTMENT ENTRANCE ARE STEEP AND LONG- IF YOU HAVE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS OR JUST DON'T WISH TO CLIMB STAIRS, PLEASE CONSIDER ANOTHER PROPERTY** (SEE PHOTO)
-Street parking is available and free (no meters). There's usually room right in front of the house; sometimes you may have to park JUST A TINY BIT up the street. In my 3+ years of hosting, I've never had a guest who couldn't find a parking place either directly in front of or extremely close to the house. That being said, if you prefer access to a dedicated, off street parking place, please consider another property.
-I live upstairs. There is a door (at the top of the spiral stairs pictured in this listing) which remains closed and locked, separating your space from mine.
-I have my own entrance, separate from yours, so apart from an initial greeting you won't have any interaction with me unless you need something.
-I'm very conscientious about keeping things quiet in the house. The floor is sturdy, and I don't wear shoes inside so you won't be bothered by creaky floors or loud footsteps overhead. You will be aware of, but not disturbed by, my presence in the house.
-My neighborhood, typically called the East End, sits directly adjacent to downtown. You can see downtown. You can walk there. Unless you are wearing stilettos. Or unless you just don't want to walk a half mile.
-My neighborhood is eclectic, lively and friendly. I know all of my neighbors. Residents are a mix of newcomers to the area and people whose families have lived in the same house for many generations.
- My neighborhood is cool and funky.
-My neighborhood is not fancy or swanky. PLEASE, don't rent from me if you wish to be surrounded by cookie cutter houses with manicured lawns. I love my neighborhood. I want to rent to people who will enjoy it as I do.
IN SUMMARY: This apartment is the perfect spot for those who want to experience downtown Asheville within walking distance yet have serene, comfortable, private accommodations to come home to.
This apartment is a special place and my guests are consistently thrilled with it.
I look forward to hosting you soon!
This beautiful apartment is located 1/2 mile easy walk to the heart of downtown Asheville. Known for its lovely mountains, vibrant music and art scene and top notch restaurants, Asheville has so many activities to offer, all of which are right at your fingertips.
