A Piece of History in the Heart of the Montford Historic District

242 Montford Ave, Asheville, NC 28801
  • $945,000


Here is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history in the heart of the Montford Historic District within a short walk to wonderful restaurants, neighborhood parks and downtown Asheville. This incredible 1915 post-Victorian cottage has just been completely restored to maintain its distinctive historic charm while also incorporating updates for modern living that include and open-concept main floor, tons of natural light, a chef’s kitchen and three spacious master suites with full baths. Characteristic Richard Sharp Smith architectural details and many original materials have been preserved. Gleaming hardwood floors, solid heavy oak doors and hardware, large wood windows and the original front porch are fully restored. The roof; a multi-zone heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system; all wiring and electrical; an in-line water heater and plumbing infrastructure are all brand new. French doors on the main level open onto a new deck that spans the back of the house creating great options for outdoor living and entertaining. Custom cabinetry, marble countertops and high-end fixtures and appliances all blend with artisanal treasures fashioned by local craftsmen to provide many beautiful special touches throughout the home. The .24-acre lot has a generous, level backyard with a parking area and plenty of space to be tailored to your dreams for gardening, play, a carriage house…you name it. A tiled mud/laundry room on the lower level offers a gracious and convenient rear entry. There is additional unlimited potential to tailor the fully conditioned, partially finished brick-walled lower level and attic to meet your own unique lifestyle needs. This home has been a labor of love and is truly a gem. She must be seen to be truly appreciated and is looking for someone special to call her home.
