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.

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.

Our sellers did an amazing job of enhancing this home appropriately which is why there was so much interest and sold in a few days – along with our targeted marketing.  Cheers to you and thank you for allowing us to help!

Here is what they said about us: “We were owners of a special mid-century home and selected Kelly and Troy to sell it for us. Because of their market specialization in this area, we were not disappointed with the results. Their personalities, combined with their appreciation and understanding of the unique qualities and lifestyle  benefits of our property helped to get us over our asking price.
