Walk or Wheel- Downtown Asheville Residences

Recently a few of our "boomer" clients have been considering the advantages of living in walkable  Downtown Asheville- and condo residence living. Several of our friends have found this a positive move as  Downtown Asheville offers awesome shopping, restaurants- and yes, even a market where one can find organic fruits and veggies.  We will be previewing and sharing photos of

Downtown Asheville opportunities that could work well for “aging-in-place” (or aging in sustainable excellencea D.I.Y PALACE- ) In the meantime, here are a few Downtown Asheville  Lofts and Condos -beautifully restored with accessibility in mind.

 3. THE ASHEVILLE CLUB AT 151 (see narrative)

Some of our clients may be interested in a Second Home here in Asheville. We could point you to a new "green-built" high-rise. "The Asheville Club at 151, gives you all the advantages of fractional ownership with the convenience and services of the chic Hotel Indigo Asheville– a new boutique hotel located near the famous Grove Arcade. You, your family and friends will enjoy a million dollar plus second home in Asheville without the traditional responsibilities and financial burdens of a vacation home… at a fraction of the cost."

Clients who stayed at the hotel while considering fractional ownership reported  that whole ownership of an unfurnished unit (1,500 to 2,285 square feet)  was $1M million-and that fractional ownership begins at about $130K.
