UPDATE: We sold this property to a wonderful family this summer. We are horse property specialists, though, so we know a few more interesting horse farms from Asheville all the way to Columbus, NC and Tryon.
An exquisite equestrian property with country charm and vistas, yet within 7 minutes of downtown Asheville, this private North Asheville estate on 3.80 acres inside the city offers contemporary Craftsman charm in a custom built 4,248 Sq Ft. home that shines with the work of local artisans.
Historic craftsmanship complements contemporary appointments. Hardwood floors, fireplaces, graceful archways ,reading nooks and a personal garden space overlooking Carter Creek , as seen in the photo to your left, combine with impeccable attention to detail to welcome you Home.
To your right, take a look at this a smart,
chef-designed gourmet kitchen
with granite countertops,
exotic wood custom cabinetry,
and hand-pounded copper backsplash
The view from this window is of
native landscaping, wonderful old
trees and colorful garden spaces.
The photo below shows the thirty-four (34) foot hallway lined with solid wood bookcases rescued from an historic Asheville building. The hallway spans Carter Creek, separating two living areas.
You can stop along the way to relax in the window seats, listen to the music of the creek, and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds you. Note how handy your books are in the bookcases that line the hallway adding the charm of yesteryear and inviting you to rest awhile should you desire to sit in the sunny nook and read.
There's another quiet reading nook off the living room as well. And at the end of this hallway, you will be surprised to find a private library living space with fireplace and windows that look out on the riding arena and distant mountains.
With two master suites and a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths including a handicap equipped in-law suite, and a family-sized screened front porch, you are ready for visitors.
While the home shines with craftsmanship and artisan care, the equestrian facilities are equally amazing.
Our photograher just took these photos of the two (2) barns, where you and your horses will appreciate the three (3 )14x14` stalls, and immaculate tackroom, not to mention the 90x100 no puddle riding arena, 60`round pen.
Notice the separate hay barn,
and full perimeter, no climb fence with solar top wire.
This one-of-a-kind property is ideal as a family compound, private estate, or equestrian center.
