Designed as a luxury private residence for the Jackson family in 1905, this home is listed on the ‘National Registry of Historic Places.’ Designed by Richard Sharp Smith, supervising architect for the ‘Biltmore House,’ it has been thoughtfully renovated and maintained to preserve its original charm. From the foyer to the gracious living spaces on all three floors, natural light beams in through original wavy-glass windows. It is completely updated with modern conveniences, including a gourmet kitchen and luxurious baths. The guest house is also completely renovated, and has potential for rental income. Both exteriors are newly painted. Traditional gardens provide year round interest, especially when butterflies arrive! Ample off-street parking. Just .8 miles to the vibrant DT scene, the home is nestled on a hill in a quiet section in Montford, AVL’s most historic neighborhood. Close to Montford Park, Tennis/Basketball courts, Reed Creek Greenway, and UNCA/Botanical Gardens & trails.



Seller's Scoop

  • View: The view of the house from the street is stunning. Every time I pull in the drive I am amazed at the grand appearance of the home and property. Both the home and carriage house exteriors were repainted two years ago.
  • Room: Nothing better than sitting on the grand front porch in the evening feeling the cool mountain breezes come in. Fully remodeled kitchen with top of the line appliances is the heart of the home.
  • Tree: The yard is a gardener's paradise with seven garden areas that are certified wildlife gardens. In the spring over 1000 bulbs we planted bloom, then the peonies and the fragrant Lilac trees, and then all summer long roses and more are in bloom.
  • Walk: We're very fortunate to have the Greenway walking path behind the houses across the street which leads to the 10 acre Botanical Garden trails. It also a wonderful neighborhood to walk through to downtown Asheville which is only one mile away.
  • Hike: The Asheville area is known for many beautiful waterfall hikes. My favorites are Dupont State Park or Catawba Falls. The Montford neighborhood is right next to UNCA’s Botanical Gardens, just a 1/2 mile away with 10 acres of trails and property to explore
  • Breakfast: The 5 Points Greek Diner in Montford is close and great! Also Biscuit Head and Early Girl are favorites.
  • Lunch: Nine Mile or All Day Darling are both located in the Montford Historic District, and are open for lunch just a five to 10 minute walk from the house.
  • Dinner: Chiesa located in the Montford Historic District and is a wonderful Italian Restaurant with homemade pasta. It is a seven minute walk from the house. My Favorite restaurant is Bouchon French Bistro located downtown Asheville one mile away.
  • Pub/Winery: New Belgium and Wedge in the River Arts are two miles away. Wicked Weed, Catawba Brewery, Ginger's Revenge and Noble Cider are all downtown. There are over 60 Breweries in Asheville. The Walnut Street Wine Bar is great, too.
  • Living Here Has Been: It is a privilege to live in a Richard Sharp Smith (architect from Biltmore Estate), home in the Historic Montford District. The architectural details are amazing. We are only the 6th owners of this home, which means everything is original from floors, to windows, to moldings. The house is a unique design for the era, with a side staircase. A traditional home in the 1900's was always built with a central grand staircase. By having a side staircase it enlarged the living room, ladies parlor, and foyer. The 3rd floor was originally a ballroom when the house was built. We have updated all of the porches and rooms so the house still has the historic feeling but also provides modern amenities throughout. Central Air and heating were installed in the the main house and as well as the entire carriage house. The upstairs bedrooms in the main house all have their own individual split units to control their heat and AC. The carriage house can be used as a rental property if desired.
