Take a deeper look at the transformation of 49 Valle Vista in North Asheville — a 1978 split-entry ranch on a private wooded lot. Our owner, puts her heart in everything. As she says,“I love transformation and wanted to find a home that I could bring life back to it, with quality work, green/environmentally friendly products wherever possible and a desire to create an oasis. I viewed this project as a work of art, carefully choosing each component with purpose, flair and beauty. This is basically a new house. Even if this home isn’t the right one for you, I hope you will join with the love and energy put into this space!”

The kitchen and living area, formally divided, has now be united and topped with a vaulted ceiling for a light and open space. Careful in creating a warm contemporary space the finishes provide brightness, contrast and warmth.

Along with everything else the three bathrooms were all gutted and updated to reflect the rest of the interior.

Overall, the home has new HVAC, roof, gutters, most plumbing, electrical, drywall and insulation, front and back deck, garage doors and radon system. As always, give us a call if you want more information on this home. In the meantime go here for the tour. Cheers!

Postwar Icon Joseph Eichler

Over the course of his career, famed midcentury developer Joseph Eichler built roughly 11,000 homes. By marrying the postwar trend for tract houses with architect-designed plans, Eichler offered middle-class homebuyers the opportunity to own a well-made, still relatively low-cost home that felt, in a word, designed.
