Perfect house for a mountain getaway with convenient location to downtown Asheville. The central portion of the house was built in 1922 as a small log cabin and has evolved and been remodeled over the years. Now Celia's Retreat features four bedrooms and three, beautiful full baths with granite and tile. This home as all of the comforts of home, while still retaining that rustic mountain charm. The grounds are simply spectacular with a large backyard with beautiful plants and landscaping. There's a fenced in yard with over an acre for your pet to roam and explore. Kids will love the large playhouse with electricity, and a swing in the old oak tree. The rear of the property backs up to the National Forest with The Mountains to Sea Trail just 100 feet beyond and the Blue Ridge Parkway a s...Perfect house for a mountain getaway with convenient location to downtown Asheville.
