Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 24, 2016
Large Front Yard, 3 Bed, 2.5 Bath, 2000 Sq. Ft., Dog Friendly

Look no further! You found a great home in the most beautiful neighborhood in Asheville for your vacation. When you turn onto lush Cherokee Road from Charlotte Street, you will pass by The Manor Inn & Gatehouse, built in 1898, and enter one of Asheville's four designated local and National Register historic districts; Albemarle Park, a neighborhood filled with 'cottages' from the late 19th century that has attracted many travelers including actors Grace Kelly, Alec Guinness, Agnes Morehead and 'the father of rhythm and blues', Louis Jordan.

Albemarle Park is unique among Asheville's Historic Districts. Every single one of its significant structures is still intact and relatively unchanged today. The cottages were all given their own unique names; Clover, Rosebank, Brown Bear, Wildfell, Kalmia, Daffodil, Italdo (pronounced It'll Do), Chipmunk, Dahlia, to name a few. Your home is called Cherokee House at 16 Cherokee Road between Shamrock and The Crow's Nest--splendidly located one mile from downtown Asheville and one mile from the Grove Park Inn.

The home is a 2000 sq ft handsome grey stucco home with a large flat front yard. It was built in 1925. A custom stacked stone ring wall encloses two gardens and cedar tree at the front porch. There is comfortable patio furniture on the porch as well as a teak table for outdoor dining. Enjoy the covered sitting area in the back yard and outdoor grill next to the parking pad. The home has brand new central air and heat, 2 zones--upstairs and downstairs. It also has a new Kohler whole-house generator so when the electricity goes out in the neighborhood, you are totally covered.

The interior has a contemporary feeling with original hardwood floors and dim-able recessed lighting. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, living room, tv room, basement, dining room & half bath. French doors open out to the front porch from the living room and dining room. There is high-speed wireless internet throughout the home.

The bedrooms are on the second floor. The Master bedroom has a King size bed, flat screen TV and its own bright full bathroom & closet. A private wood deck accoutered, table with umbrella, is attached to the Master bedroom. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, closet & a smart TV. The 3rd bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser & closet. A full bath in hallway is shared by the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms.

The main floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, stylish living room, a modern gas fireplace, and a relaxing TV room with an automatic reclining sofa and 54-inch LED smart TV - Charter Cable, Pandora music & Neflix included. There is a basement with a washer and dryer. There is a private two-car parking pad behind the house. The driveway is shared with the neighbor. Two adult bicycles & one kid bicycle with helmets and locks are available for your use during your stay.

About the Owner

My name is Mike Boustead and my husband is David Francis. We have been together for 21 years--married recently in Asheville. We previously lived in Los Angeles where we both worked in the film and music industries. I was a music editor for such films as Remember the Titans, The Royal Tenenbaums, Collateral, Lemony Snicket's: A Series of Unfortunate Events, and many others. David was a recording pianist for such films as Pursuit of Happyness, Elegy and Fame. David is the composer of BARK! The Musical. He is also a classical concert pianist with 8 cds commercially available. Together, we produced the hit musical BARK! that ran in Los Angeles for two years and has since been licensed across the country. BARK! tells the story of six dogs and their experiences for one day in Deena's Doggie Daycare. We have two dogs in our family: Massimo, an Italian greyhound who is 1 and 1/2 years and our Brother Wolf dog, Effie who is 4 years old.

Very comfortable pet friendly home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Mike and David's house. All the extras that you would want in a vacation home were available and if you needed anything else Mike was there to answer any questions at anytime.

We would definitely stay here again.

The location is perfect, close to town but far enough away.

Friends from Naples, Florida

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in Peter and Mike's beloved home. It was everything and more than what we expected. The best part is how attentive Mike is to details! He makes sure everything is perfect. After a rainstorm, he came over to blow off the front porch and fix the gravel in the parking area in back of the home. He gave us numerous suggestions of their favorite places in Asheville which we really appreciated. Hope to go back in a few years for another visit!

Willows: C'est Parfait!

  • 5 of 5

We had a memorable stay at The Willows the weekend of the Asheville Marathon / half-Marathon. We traveled from NYC to meet up with our daughters, who were running the half-Marathon, and who had traveled from DC and Indianapolis. The Willows was a perfect place for our family reunion! Mike is a gracious, welcoming host, who could not have set things up better for us. The home is comfortable, beautifully furnished (kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms) and in a peaceful, wooded setting.. yet only 5 min by car from downtown Asheville, with easy access on and off US-240 to get to the Blue Ridge. Given the size of the home, The Willows is more suitable for a group of 4 or 6 than a couple, but keeping that in mind, one couldn't ask for more. We'll be back!

Home sweet home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into the Willows we knew we had found the perfect home away from home! Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a sweet note from the owners and fancy chocolate! The home is immaculate and there is wonderful artwork adorning every room. The front patio was fabulous for enjoying a glass of wine and rehashing the day's events. This home truly is a treat in every way and we are so thankful that we had an opportunity to enjoy it!

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about The Willows. The house is very close to downtown Asheville yet is quiet and secluded. Every detail is well thought out, from the kitchen amenities to extra soaps in the bathrooms. Staying here was like staying with a thoughtful friend and we felt so welcome. I didn't want to leave! I can't think of anything negative about this place - just perfect!

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with the charm of the city, the lively and excellent arts organizations, the panoramic vistas and the friendliness of the people-many of whom also moved here from somewhere else. The city is progressive and bubbling with excitement. We instantly fell in love with the Cherokee House the minute we walked through it's front door. The home is located in the best neighborhood in Asheville and one mile from downtown. One can go to the theater and out for drinks and dinner and then in three minutes return to our serene and beautiful home where its warm graciousness will embrace you with comfort and ease.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Asheville Regional Airport at 15.8 Miles Nearest Motorway : Interstate 240 at 1 Miles Car: necessary

The exquisite Biltmore House build by the Vanderbilt family is 20 minutes away. The world famous attraction includes manicured grounds and gardens along with its own winery.

Asheville boasts restaurants of high quality offering cuisines from various countries. Some of our favorites include 'Curate' and 'Reza's'. There is also brand new 'Gan Shan Station' on Charlotte Street featuring delicious Pan-American cuisine and right around the corner on Charlotte Street is local 'Metro Wines' and 'Ultimate Ice Cream'.
