This house is a perfect retreat, close to both the woods and the city! The house is artistic and beautiful, an old soul with modern comforts. It is lived in and loved, filled with art, books, and other interesting objects - a really special space! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, and the house is right on the edge of a wooded area with beautiful trails to walk among the trees, and the UNCA botanical gardens! It is also a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive from downtown. Close to UNC Asheville campus, as well as several excellent restaurants, grocery stores, and coffee shops in the neighborhood. Close to everything, yet you'd never know you're in the middle of the city with all the beautiful nature and wildlife around you!

The house is fully furnished, and has plenty of off street parking and a large yard/garden space. Tenants will have access to the kitchen/dining area, living room, and the guest bedroom with full size brand new futon bed, laundry room, as well as one bathroom off the guest bedroom with a clawfoot tub, and the other bathroom off the kitchen with a shower. The other bedroom is used for storage of the homeowner's personal belongings and is not typically accessible to tenants. **If you end up renting the space long term, we may consider renting out the second bedroom as well. Please let us know if this is something you are interested in!

The downstairs portion of the house is used as work and storage space and occasionally someone might need to stop by to pick up something from the downstairs. This shouldn't affect your stay in any way, except an added car in the driveway. And don't worry, everyone is very friendly and will try not to disturb you when we stop by, unless you want a good local story or two!

Please note that the household is home to many pieces of precious art, books, and hand made pottery, and other delicate objects. For this reason we request that you be extremely careful and respectful of the household, and treat it as you would your own home. This home is perfect as a relaxing retreat or a place to study and work, but not ideal for parties and large gatherings!

Strict smoking policy: no smoking inside, and preferably no smoking at all!
Prefer no animals but may consider a calm, well behaved dog.

The house is available starting immediately! We are looking for the perfect folks to treat this magical space as their own. We are flexible in terms of the length of your stay and move-in date. We may be open to considering a more long term rental situation if it's the right fit. Please send a message with some information about yourself and what you are looking for in a living situation.
