Historic Colonial is a Stewardship Oppportunity in Asheville, N.C.

 

STEWARDSHIP OPPORTUNITY

 

 

          Picture the charm of a graceful Asheville, North Carolina neighborhood in the early nineteen hundreds. It's a Spring day in Asheville, a hundred ago, and you are relaxing on your side porch, sipping a lemonade, and listening to the laughter of children playing in the yard.

      Tonight you and the family will "take your constitutional" (walk) over 
to the nearby Biltmore Estate built just a few years before your own home.  Maybe you'll retrieve your brand new  Model T from the carriage house  and ride there, instead. You just love the spiffy style.

        A Colonial residence, stately and symmetrical, carriage house to the rear and huge trees shading the grounds awaits you today. With variances, it could be a perfectly situated Homestay.

 The kitchen is bright and inviting.
Just entering this room could inspire
even a timid chef.Asheville HOme for Sale. Patio

  Have breakfast there, or step   outside  for coffee and sweet  rolls on the deck shaded by trees.

                                                                                                                    

                                                                                                             Majestic trees & inviting decks,

One day we're going to break down and go on a vacation.  The last time we went on anything was to the other side of the island for a fishing trip...didn't catch one fish!  I have a house closing on Thursday that has 3100 sq. ft. of land....

Steph~

There is just something about the craftsmanship in an historic home that is hard to find in many contemporary properties. Coming into the foyer, for example, you find there is plenty of room to meet and hug your family and friends...and off to either side of the foyer are living spaces to enjoy a leisurely dining experience and conversation. 

Sally~

I guess we'll just have to visit YOU!

I love older homes. They have more character. New homes all look the same, older ones...ahhh!  Great!

Jane Anne,

What a lovely pictorial essay on this charming home.

Love the idyllic setting and the warmth this home exudes. Being from New England I have always had a soft spot for Colonials! I hope you find just the right buyer to appreciate and care for this gem!

I rarely see the quality that we noted as we went  from room-to-room in this special home. The kitchen was actually so welcoming that we all just stood and smiled...it was hard to leave!...but each room felt that way...I became a fan of colonials all over again.

Stephanie~ 

I know what you mean about older homes. Here in Asheville we are so fortunate to attract others who feel as you do. Many of the older homes have been restored to their former glory.

THANKS  for your comments!

JaneAnne - you are a realtor to die for! I feel like you just took me on a personal tour. Does the car come with the house (ha!)? 

And congrats on Post 200!

Mary~

Although I am a land specialist (horse farms and large acreages for conservation-eco-development) there are a few special homes that simply speak  to me! This is one of them. It is amazing to be inside a home that was master-crafted at a time when workmanship and materials were of the finest quality. It is a delight to find such a masterpiece where the owners have been stewards of this treasure and have lived in it with loving care.

JaneAnne,

What a beautiful home.  There are a lot of pretty historic homes around Asheville.  I would love to buy an old farmhouse in our own area on some land and then restore it!

Thanks for letting me know about-your interest in restoring historic homes/properties! That is something we share. And you are correct...Asheville is known for amazing historic homes and for a sentiment of stewardship that has allowed these treasures life in 2007...
