Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Asheville Area - Wild Mountain Air

Open floor plan, deck & covered porch, 2 Large Bedrooms, 3 beds, Sublime View

Only 20 minutes north of Asheville, this home is within a friendly private community and nestled at the base of a sunny south facing mountain. The view is pastoral and lovely. Large Tulip Poplar trees create just enough of a natural green screen to filter the sun and offer a little seclusion. The soothing magic of the cool Blue Ridge mountain air can be felt here.

Open floor plan between kitchen and living room spilling out onto a large deck and wrap around covered porch. Comfortably furnished this home is a sanctuary ~ a quiet corner of the world to relax, rejuvenate, and drink in the wild mountain air.

Upstairs Master Bedroom: Sleep with the stars and moon through a sky filled wall of windows ~ a dreamy tree top view with a lots of light. Private balcony, cathedral ceilings, queen size bed, claw foot bathtub/shower and walk-in closet.

Main level Master Bedroom: Natural tones and blue hues for a soft nest like setting. A better room choice for those that need less light for sleeping! Queen size bed, master bathroom with walk-in double head shower room made for two!

Built in 2008 with love and green building principles. Intended to blend in with the lay of the land and a casual barefoot style. The passive solar design of the house utilizes the cool night air, ceiling fans in combination with concrete floors to keep the house nice and cool. Portable AC units add an extra coolness to keep everyone chilled during summer.

We are 20 minutes north of Asheville, 10 minutes to downtown Weaverville, 5 minutes to Blue Ridge Parkway and trails

45 minutes will get you to Hotsprings and into a tub of natural hot spring water by the river.

Laundry room in basement available upon request.

Please take note the house is a spacious 3 levels with the upper 2 levels being offered in the description above.

The lower or basement level is private with separate entrance and a part time residence for the owner.

Please tell me a little about yourself and what brings you to the area.

About Leah Baker

Returned to my North Carolina roots in 2006 after living in San Francisco Bay area for 17 years.

I enjoy walking in the woods, riding my horse, traveling, being a crafty artisan ~ see my lamps at Woolworth Walk in Asheville or check out Luminosa Lighting via https://www.facebook.com/luminosalighting/?ref=hl . Yes, a shameless plug!

Leah Baker purchased this house in 2007

Why Leah Baker chose Asheville Area

My sister and I have owned this land since 1982 and finally in 2006 it was time to come back east.

What makes this house unique

Weaverville is a sweet little town just far enough away from Asheville to get away from the crowd but not so far to be inconvenient. Last few years some very good restaurants have opened and offer some great local choices. The Glass Onion on Main Street, a fantastic bakery (Well Bred), a quiet internet cafe (All Good Coffee), Blue Mountain Pizza (usually has live music), and The Twisted Laurel to name a few. Miya Gallery/Store and Mangum Pottery showcase beautiful locally made art and craft work. You don't have to go back in to Asheville to have a night out. The house sits close to the parkway, 10 minutes from downtown Weaverville and 20 minutes from downtown Asheville.

Hiking, Zipline, Natural Hotsprings, river tubing are all nearby.

quiet, peaceful setting with opportunity on this visit to watch hay being baled in nearby fields - AC available but not needed with all windows open - very pleasant home decor & all needed kitchenware for easy cooking - good birdwatching from the porch decks

Relaxing weekend in a beautiful mountain home filled with treasures

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything I hoped it would be: beautiful mountain setting, close to nearby towns, extremely clean, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and filled with perfectly chosen and placed treasures throughout the home. Leah was very helpful and although she was staying in the lower level (separate entrance), we never felt that we were sharing a home. We spent our weekend exploring the area, eating at wonderful restaurants in nearby Weaverville and Asheville, floating down the river with Zen tubing and relaxing in Leah's unique home. I would highly recommend this home to anyone!

Exactly as advertised

The photos were exactly correct. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Two friends and I spent a lovely few days here. It was hard to leave for any outings! We would definitely return! Leah was responsive to all my questions.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed here for 5 nights looking for some Rest and Relaxation, and boy did this house fit the bill. The house is a breath of fresh air with the fun, creative and comfortable furnishings all in a lovely setting. Leah has an artistic flair and is skilled at "bringing the outside in." This house is one of a kind for sure. We came to explore Asheville, but actually loved the little quaint town of Weaverville, where this house sits on the outskirts. Don't miss Stoney Knob Cafe and Well Bred Bakery! Oh, and 5 minutes to the Blue Ridge parkway!
