Welcome to our Attic, where exquisite detail dances w/ sustainable design in this lovingly crafted Attic atelier. The 600 sq. foot Attic represents the owners' (a husband & wife design team) philosophy of walking softly on the Earth while living passionately and luxuriously - yet, without excess or waste....the truest measure of "being green."
Experiencing this well-designed small space provides clients & guests alike with a heightened spatial awareness of what is truly necessary to live well.
Particulars: Top (3rd floor) apartment has windows on all sides & a cedar shingled covered porch on the North side to maximize cross ventilation. (There is also a large window A/C unit should you need additional cooling....) There are comfy chairs on the porch to linger with a cup of coffee for the sun's rise or set...
The apt. has 3 sleeping spaces within its 600 sq. foot perimeter. The Queen bed is built into the West window while the Twin built-in chamber faces East & has beautiful views across the valley to Town Mountain. There is a 3rd sleeping space built into the attic's eaves w/ a twin futon, storage space & reading light. (Children love this cozy hideaway however, we have found children over the ages of 6 to be the best match for the Attic.)
The Attic is beautifully appointed w/ high thread count cotton sheets, down pillows, silk/woolen blankets & down comforters.
The fully equipped kitchen has gas cooking, Miele dishwasher & disposal, full-size refrigerator. White Italian or English dishware, All Clad & Cuisinart pots & pans, Bodum French press coffeemaker & vintage linens....in short, everything one needs to create a beautiful, delicious meal....Asheville has an abundance of Farmer's Mkts & simply the freshest, most alive produce we've found anywhere in the country!
There is a new washing machine in the apt. (We line dry everything all year round in a further effort to reduce our carbon footprint.) There is a clothesline & old fashioned wooden clothespins; an iron & full size ironing board as well.
An eclectic library & music collection & Vermont Castings gas "wood"stove to take the chill off cool nights complete the ambience of the Attic.
There is a flat screen TV in the Queen bedchamber as well as Wi-Fi & Cable TV.
The Attic is located on a wide, tree-lined street, in a 1920's brick single family home which was converted to apartments and subsequently, condos. There is a huge common balcony w/ umbrella & comfortable seating w/ seasonal plantings as well as off street parking.
There is ample room for 6 yogis to practice inside the Attic and there is an excellent yoga studio 3 blocks away, literally 5 minutes walk.
