    What a beautiful place to relax in total privacy and isolation, without any neighbors within site.

     At the end of your private country lane sits a timeless estate. Ivy Manor was designed and built by artists with an eye for detail to create a beautiful, unique home that is sophisticated and gracious, comfortable and inviting, casually elegant.

    From the custom cabinet work, double helix staircase and barrel ceilings, to the floor layout and placement of windows for an abundance of natural light, much thought and imagination was put into the design of this home. A gracious entry hall leads to the light-filled main living space which has double height ceilings and a custom fireplace with a large Jotul wood stove. This room opens to an overly spacious, gourmet kitchen, featuring cherry cabinets, granite tops, a large island, double ovens, gas cooktop and a huge walk-in pantry. There are several dining options to choose from: the back dining room offers a tongue and groove barrel ceiling and sunset views, the front dining room enjoys early morning sunrises through the second story palladium windows and the sumptuous front dining porch offers outdoor dining with stunning mountain and pasture views.

    Ivy Manor balances the open concept with private spaces. The French doors with custom stained glass lead you to a spacious yet cozy library/office that functions equally well for working at home or curling up with a good book. Additionally, a loft with consistent northern light provides the perfect space for an artist to get inspired.

    The oversized first-floor master bedroom suite offers a private porch, a barrel ceiling, and palladium windows that allow star gazing from bed before drifting off to sleep. The luxurious spa-like ensuite bath has custom tile work, a large walk-in shower with dual shower heads, a jetted tub, and two vanities transformed from high-end furniture.

    The genius of the home’s design is that it embraces one level living yet the second floor can be opened up to provide ample room for family and guests. The front bedroom is ensuite, two additional bedrooms share a hallway full bath and a half bath. Additionally,
    the second floor has its own sitting area plus flex space for an exercise room or a second office. This level has its own HVAC system, enabling it to be closed off to reduce energy consumption when not in use. 

    Also on the first floor is a mud room, laundry room, and half bath. The daylight basement offers a 22x50 open space currently used for dog training but could be re-purposed for yoga, exercise, dance, gymnastics or...? The basement also has a dog grooming room with a custom dog bath. Whatever your hobby, this home was designed and built to accommodate it.

    The carriage house is off the main house. It holds a two car garage with extra 
    space for storage or a workshop, and a half bath for cleaning up after you work. The second floor contains a 770 square foot, one bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, perfect for extended family or use as a rental.

    Ivy Manor is nestled to the back of 6.19 acres of pasture but can be purchased with an additional 2.31 acres for $843,000. It is surrounded by woods and enjoys complete privacy and serenity. The outdoors has not been forgotten with the design of this home with over 580 square feet of covered porches, you will find yourself relaxing outdoors all through the year. Imagine drinking your morning tea or coffee from the expansive front porch as you watch the sun rise over the mountain as your horses graze in the far pasture.  A second knoll offers another lovely home site and is the perfect spot for an equestrian barn, clearly visible from the house. Deer, fox, and turkey are often seen in the pasture enjoying the clover and dining on apples.

    This is the first time that Ivy Manor has come on the market. Although its purpose has been to accommodate the whims of two artists, we can envision other uses as well. The size and layout will easily accommodate large families as well as multi-generational families. The original floor plan was designed for a B&B. Many have suggested that Ivy Manor would make a fabulous wedding venue.

    Ivy Manor enjoys the aesthetics of a mountain estate yet its location is convenient to all of the wonderful amenities and beauty that Asheville and the surrounding mountains have to offer.  It is located 12 minutes from the shops in Weaverville and only 20 minutes from the fine dining and culture found in downtown Asheville. It is perfectly situated right on the Madison County line, giving you a lower tax base. This is mountain living at its finest, and it is waiting here just for you!
