-Gorgeous community tucked away in the woods. Open kitchen and great room is ideal for entertaining. Perfect floor plan for main level living. Partially finished lower level is ideal for guests w/bedroom, bathroom and family room. Tons of storage and tons of space. Oversized deck is perfect to enjoy winter sunset views. Enjoy sunny days down by the river park playing or fly fishing. Access Warren Wilson College trails behind the neighborhood.
The things I love about East Asheville are the quiet evenings away from the Hustle and Bustle of Downtown Asheville. East Asheville, in my opinion, is more relaxing than other parts of Asheville, there is less traffic, you can easily feel like you are miles away yet all your shopping is so close by. We also have quick, easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Swannanoa River and the Mall!
We love to go out to eat and we have many great restaurants in East Asheville, Latin Flavor cafe is 5 minutes from the house they have excellent food and a very classy atmosphere. Pomodoro's - Greek and Italian is just a couple of miles away, they have great Pizzas. East Village Grille is great to enjoy socializing and they have great burgers. Filo is convenient to meet a friend from coffee and desert. Tunnel Rd is not far away and we enjoy going to Pappas and Beer. Downtown Asheville is 15 minutes away and there are numerous restaurants for the foodies, Curate, Table, Stratta Italian, Chestnut, etc...you will love the food in Asheville. Grocery stores are plentiful, Whole Foods will be opening on South Tunnel Rd. Ingles is 5 minutes away. Trader Joe's and Harris Teeter is 15 minutes away. This home is a great investment in a well established mountain community, the location is secluded yet extremely convenient. It is exactly what we would call the perfect Asheville home. The Asheville area is ideal for those who enjoy the beauty of nature. You do not have to be an extreme sport lover to enjoy the beauty of these mountains, with greenways and river parks, this area lends itself to folks from all walks of life. A true community where you can blend in and find yourself.
A few other things we can mention. . .the house is great for entertaining, cook a great meal while watching a game with friends, or enjoy gatherings on the huge deck. The floor plan is great and there is a ton of storage in the house.
The Swannanoa river is a state stocked river and the portion of the river by the river park is private, if you enjoy fly fishing, you have your own river right in your "back-yard" you don't have to drive anywhere to enjoy a little time by the waters. If you love to be active, there are activities that will keep you busy, hiking, rafting, mountain biking or simply enjoy a Sunday drive stopping at an overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway with your book and a picnic basket. We also enjoy going Downtown for some very entertaining people watching. Our neighborhood is great. You will never know this neighborhood even exists unless you take the turn and drive along the river to find this private, well established mountain community. It is a rather large community but the location of our home is the best in the neighborhood, you don't have to drive through the entire community to get to the house. Our street is great to walk the dogs or play in the road, the only cars that drive down our road are the neighbors who live there. We have gorgeous sunset views in the winter and it is super private in the summer when the leaves fill the trees. We have fantastic social events in our community, such as hiking, picnics down by the river park, dinner nights at the Latin Flavor Cafe or cookie exchange parties over the holidays.
We had the gas on a budget plan, we filled the tank and paid $100 per month and the tank lasted us about 12 months. Electricity was at its lowest about $100 per month, another great thing about this home, if you keep the upstairs windows open, the air flows through naturally and you don't need to turn on the air conditioner! At its highest $225. Water bill was about $40 per month with 2 people living in the home.
