Inviting home with year round long range views of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mount Mitchell. This home was built to incorporate the views in every room. Gleaming hardwood floors and lots of natural light. Low maintenance vinyl shingle exterior. Gorgeous loft area with views overlooking the great room.Solid wood doors throughout. Rinnai instant hot water. Convenient location, just 15 minutes to Downtown Asheville.

The thing I love most about Asheville is that it is a vibrant town. There are many restaurants (local and chains), live music and theater productions nearly every weekend, and lots of festivals. There is always something to do here! It is also a beautiful place with mountain views around every curve and lots of hiking opportunities.

We love to eat at different places to try new things. There are many local restaurants, like Tupelo Honey Cafe and Doc Chey's Noodle House. There are also many chain restaurants like Cracker Barrel, Ruby Tuesday, and Bonefish Grill.

Bring the Hot Chocolate

There are a lot of grocery stores in this area! We have lots of Ingles, Bi-Lo, Harris Teeter and 3 Walmart stores close by. There are 2 Earth Fare markets close by as well.

Stunning Kitchen
When we bought this property we were looking for a retreat that was close to city conveniences. We were looking for the best of both worlds! We can enjoy the peace of the mountains and be in town for a dinner and a performance at the Civic Center in only a few minutes.

Grand Entry Way
Asheville is a wonderful area because it has breathtaking scenery. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs through Asheville with lots of hiking trails and scenic overlooks. Asheville also has long springs and falls - the weather is terrific! You can even watch as the fall colors begin high in the mountains (our backyard) and continue down into the city.
The colors of fall last well over a month!

The schools here are very good and there are a lot of art, theater, music and dance opportunities for the students. There are also local colleges for more advanced learning opportunities. AB Tech is a great community college and UNC-Asheville is also just downtown. Mars Hill College, Warren Wilson College, Montreat, and Brevard Colleges are also close by.

Really Is A Great Room!
We live near the top of Busbee Mountain, which can be accessed by the "long" side (Pinners' Cove Rd.) or the "short" side (Rose Hill Rd.). The "long" side (about 4 miles) has quick access to HWY. 26  and the airport. There are also a lot of churches and shopping centers. On the "short" side (about 2 miles), we are  just off of HWY. 240 (Exit 9) and HWY 40 (Exit 53A) near the Asheville Mall and downtown Asheville.    We are both professional musicians and we enjoy the many chances to play with groups here in Asheville. We love playing opera, symphony concerts, and chamber music recitals. We also enjoy the many parks and nature trails that allow us to enjoy the beautiful scenery up close.          

Superb Views
We were surprised that our electric and gas bills were so low here in Asheville. Even with such a large home, the propane is about $200 a month and the electric is about the same. So much of the year we can keep the windows open and enjoy the mountain breezes! With a well, there are no monthly water bills.
