Just west of Asheville (approximately 15 minutes) is the home of your dreams! Million dollar views under $250K. 3 bedroom/ 2 bath (plus bonus room) on .44 acres in Candler.
Once you get past the great mountain views from the large front deck and look inside, you’ll appreciate all the other extras this home has. Bonus room with closet, loft area, lots of closet space in country setting close to shopping. It’s move-in ready and pre-inspected with a home warranty. Could be just the right home in which you can make memories.
The things I love about Candler are the convenience to so many recreational and shopping opportunities, and its proximity to Asheville - without the taxes! AB Tech has a campus right here in town with its entrepreneurship lab and a lot of fun adult ed courses.
We love to eat at Doc Brown's North Carolina BBQ, with killer banana pudding, and Rejavanation Cafe for coffee on the deck with our dogs.
This house comes with two things you could never add: Great views and great neighbors. It also has a large deck from which to view immoveable mountains, passing clouds, bunnies, hawks, eagles, and other birds regularly, plus balloons early on weekend mornings. It’s the perfect place to sit, ponder God’s handiwork, and think great thoughts.
The neighbors are people who will always be there when you need them. We know from experience.
House itself has 1855 square foot HLA with 3 bedrooms, (master bedroom on main level), 2 full baths with double sinks and tub/showers, plus a half bath in the laundry room. A second floor bonus room with a double closet now serves as a home office, while a loft space now a media room could be perfect for a homeschooling classroom or a kids’ play area.
The kitchen has a pantry closet and is fully equipped with cooktop, oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, and a moveable island. All kitchen appliances and the island will go to buyers, as will laundry room’s washer and dryer. Lots of storage space is available in bedroom double closets, bathroom closets, and attic and basement crawl space.
The property is .43 acres, most of which is yard for kids and dogs to play in. The rest is taken up by a newly-graveled driveway in front and a garden area in back. (Disclosure: Garden left unattended this year.)
Candler has a lot of conveniences within minutes: Ingles, three Dollar Generals, Rite Aid, Chinese takeout, Doc Brown’s barbecue, pizza, the Y, banks, and the Library, to name just a few. There’s also the Rejavanation Café, where you can sip a coffee on the patio with your dogs and plan your weekend trips to waterfalls or flea markets. And if Candler itself doesn’t provide all you need to satisfy body and soul, West Asheville is only 10 minutes away, Asheville itself just five minutes more. Between them they offer about any style of music you want, any type of cuisine you prefer, and any form of art you’d love to see.
We’d love to stay here, but our aging joints are calling loudly for a move to one-floor living and minimal property maintenance duties. We will definitely miss the place and hope that the next owners will love this home as much as we have.
Utility costs are far less than they were for us up north. Duke Power is the Electric company and its on town water.
