Location: Asheville, North Carolina
Following closely on the heels of Charleston, South Carolina, Asheville, in Western North Carolina, is the second-fastest gentrifying city in the U.S., according to a recent report. For those looking to get in on the action, here’s a wonderfully updated “shamrock” cottage on the market in the historic district of Albermarle Park.
Built at the turn of the century, the 3,374-square foot features many period details like leaded glass windows and hardware and won the Griffin Award for restoration by the Preservation Society of Asheville and Buncombe County.
The home features five bedrooms, four baths, and multiple formal areas including a fireplaced foyer, sitting room, library, and dining, to name a few. A wine cellar, guest apartment with separate entrance, study, and treehouse are also found on the nearly half-acre property. As for the interiors, hardwood floors, wood molding and paneling, and brick details are found throughout.
Located within walking distance of downtown and boasting many outdoor entertaining areas, the house at 18 Cherokee Road is offered at $815,000.
