Relax on the back patio, just steps from the kitchen, while cooking up family favorites on the large gas grill, just steps away from the stone fire pit. Relax around the fire on warm summer evenings or cool spring and fall nights, telling stories and cooking S'Mores. Watch your kids safely play in the large fenced front yard, wrap around decks or veranda. They can also join the neighborhood kids in bicycling around the cul-de-sac and other dead end streets.
Spread out in the large king beds and walk in closets found in each of the 3 spacious upstairs bedrooms. Enjoy the beautiful cherry hardwood floors throughout the main level. Get familiar with the large spacious kitchen stocked by myself, a chef. Enjoy the stainless steel appliances and my favorite rolling block cutting board to top it off or eat out every night, it is Asheville after all. Enjoy a cozy living room with large flat screen TV with all you can watch Netflix already set up and high speed internet or the mostly open yoga/sunroom (a great place for kid gymnastics, play time or air mattress if someone doesn't want to share) As a minimalist you'll find what you need but not much clutter in my home. The dining room, one of my favorite areas, has a fantastic barn-wood table that seats 6 and some additional seating is available in the comfortable kitchen bar stools and downstairs.
For more than 6 guests we open up the spacious and artsy basement with 2 additional bedrooms (1 king and 1 queen), full bathroom, additional kitchen, living room, dining area, and additional flat screen TV. For a basement with no windows it feels cozy and artsy with the taller ceilings and modern but simple design. It is not fancy but its comfortable with memory foam mattresses and plenty of space for your extra guests.
Tunnel Road hosts shopping and restaurants, as well as leading you right into downtown (only 6.5 miles!). The home is just two miles off of Tunnel Road near the VA hospital. If you'd like to visit West Asheville or the River Arts District its all a short drive, it is convenient to I-240, I-40, and all of Asheville.
You are only 2 miles to Filo, a local coffee shop featuring excellent coffee and baked goods. East Village Grille with fantastic wings, grouper ruben sandwich, and huge greek salads, it's one of my favorite places to eat in town. (it's right next door to Filo) I am a chef so I will have plenty of great places to recommend. It's very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. You could easily ride your bicycle and get on the parkway to enjoy a beautiful bike ride and/or hike from one of the nearby trails.
We hire professional cleaners and laundry service for each and every cleaning. The services of Merry Maids has been very professional and dependable. If anything isn't right, simply give them a call and they will come right back out Monday-Friday 7:00 am - 5:00 pm. For weekend rentals we recommend arriving before 5:00 incase you need something from the cleaning staff.
Interaction with Guests
My goal is to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I will be available to give as much or as little conversation, advice, directions, and information as you need.
Quiet, friendly but not nosey, convenient to lots of restaurants, shopping, about a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway! You could safely and easily ride your bike to the Parkway entrance from my home. Please drive slowly through our quiet, dead end neighborhood.
