Kelly and I enjoy scouting out simple ranches with those extra details that reflect that rustic side of Asheville or a universal retro look. We may find an asymmetric fireplace wall, exposed beams supporting a vaulted ceiling, vintage wood paneling or natural stone work. No matter the detail they can feel cozy and warm with a touch of cool that reflect the nostalgia of how we grew up. For more general information on Asheville ranch home living please see over a dozen past articles I’ve written on Ranch Homes.
Currently on the market, are three homes shown above that all have that nostalgic, mid-century, ranch feeling. However, what makes these three Asheville homes distinctive is that they are situated on large, private lots with good indoor/outdoor relationships for maximizing that Asheville lifestyle. The visibility and flow to outdoor living creates that expansion needed to breathe free of the typical ranch box. Some of the interiors offer use of wood that helps bring the outdoors in. As typical of ranch homes, all three offer efficient living for those looking to economize and enjoy the broader lifestyle that Asheville has to offer.
672 Pinners Cove is 3 Bed + 2 Bath is privately located on 2.38 acres just east and then south of Asheville close to where I, myself, live. For more photos see here. 143 Buffalo Trail is 3 Bed + 2.5 Baths on 1.04 Acres just east and then North of Asheville. For more photos see here. 11 Pine Tree Rd. is 3 Bed + 2 Baths on .91 acres on one of my favorite North Asheville streets offering privacy and convenience. There is no virtual tour for this property.
Kelly and I would love to help you get to know some of the vintage ranch homes here in Asheville that offer convenience of location to downtown in established and friendly neighborhoods.
