Nestled in the woods on a mountainside but near everything and right in town. The location, on the edge of the largest concentration of historic districts in Asheville, is unexpectedly quiet for a home just below where Town Mountain Road rises up from the downtown area. It’s a place with easy access to all that Asheville offers: a straight shot up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, less than five minutes to your favorite supermarket and walking distance to restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops around Charlotte Street and even downtown.

Porches the width of the house on each level means there’s beauty inside and out, a place where you’ll constantly feel connected to the mountains as well as to the architectural beauty that attracts people to this area. Standing on one of the porches will remind you of why you live in Asheville. From these porches, you will always feel secluded, protected and yet immersed in your surroundings and the seasons.

The winter reveals the maximum visual expanse available, while the summer provides the feel of your own personal protective tree house. And, the fall color....well, that’s in a category of its own.

Skyview Place 8 Skyview Place, Asheville, NC 28804

Walking along the winding mountain roads of your neighborhood can easily lead you to a Grove Park Inn brunch or guide you past historic architecture and streets from Asheville’s nineteenth century building boom when people poured into town for its mild climate and clean air, considered to be optimal for those suffering from tuberculosis and other hard-to-cure illnesses. Just down the hill, you can walk through Albemarle Park, also called the Manor Grounds, where you’ll pass by the former Winyah Sanitorium, now converted into a lovely apartment building.

In this neighborhood, Thomas Wolfe acted in Shakespearean plays in the small park-in-the- round on Terrace Road. On the same street, Nina Simone gave an afternoon recital at Milfoil Cottage where her piano tutor lived, and the Manor itself, part of the film set for The Last of the Mohicans, was a popular summer destination for those escaping the heat of Charleston, Savannah, Mobile and points in-between. Many of those summer people never left, and that tendency to come and stay is still a key factor in Asheville’s vitality.


The bottom line: This house provides easy living across three levels, each completely updated, and featuring 4 bedrooms and baths, two sitting rooms, two fireplaces, and an open kitchen. There’s dining both indoors and on a fully screened-in porch off the kitchen, and two more perfect porches on the other levels. Before we forget, there’s a roomy garage and a spacious storage room on the bottom level, plus very ample closets throughout. And, it’s close to everything you’re interested in.
