A perfect location for exploring downtown Asheville! This beautiful two bedroom apartment is located in the upstairs of a huge home built in 1920. The upstairs location and the surrounding trees are the reason our guests have named it the Tree House. A charming, roomy studio is the centerpiece of this attractive space.
If you like walking, you can get to the civic center for a show in about 10 minutes, or walk downtown in about 12 to 15 minutes. There are three state-of-the-art grocery stores within about a five minute walk. Trader Joe's, Harris Teeter and Greenlife Grocery are all just up the block. The Montford neighborhood just across Broadway has some gorgeous homes and a nice park, and the Visitor's Center is within easy walking distance. You could even stroll over to UNC Asheville if you feel so inclined, it's right down the street.
The studio has a large window at the end so you have lots of light. One guest stayed about a month and used it as a yoga and massage room. There is a futon sofa in the studio that can be opened out to a full size futon bed. An open floor plan leads to the kitchen, so you can enjoy your family and friends while you cook. We recently updated the kitchen floor from vinyl tile to laminate and it makes a huge difference.
The front bedroom faces Chestnut Street and you can see some of downtown Asheville from the window. It's a good sized room with hardwood floors, and an old fireplace (it's out of service but still adds character). There is a nice dresser and a closet so you will have plenty of storage for your clothes. It is very cheery and bright. There's a super comfortable queen size bed that has been described by one guest as "the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in".
The middle bedroom is a bit smaller. and also features the same kind of bed. These beds are fairly new, purchased in September 2012. We have received a lot of great feedback about them and we bought identical ones for all our properties. There is a dresser and a closet in this bedroom as well, and the window overlooks the side yard, the downstairs porch and Fulton Street down below.
The bathroom is spacious and well lit by a large window and two light fixtures. It has a tub with tiled in shower and a shower curtain.
Please note that this is an old house, and it's located on a fairly busy street. There is no off-street parking, so during busy times you may have a bit of a walk. There are a lot of steps to navigate. The downstairs residents keep a well appointed and very clean chicken pen in the side yard. The home has been restored in the old style, and improvements are ongoing. Most of our guest find it charming, but it is not for everyone so please consider these facors before you rent. We want our guests to be happy and have a great experience, so if you have questions or concerns please feel free to email or call.
IMPORTANT: This is an upstairs apartment, and the caretakers live downstairs. They are available to answer questions, address your concerns, and help make your stay more enjoyable. They have three young children, so please no loud noise late at night.
