    When you live in a home "of a certain age," you live surrounded by the warmth and love of the people who came before. The Woods-Eller house was build in 1920 by Mr. W.G. Wood, a German immigrant who was also a carpenter. Recently a widower, Mr. Wood designed this distinctive Gambrel Roof Styled home for himself and his many sons (possibly 13 sons!). Together they built this home out of black locust trees and stone found on the property. They situated the home on their parcel of land to catch the morning sun in front and utilize maximum garden space in the back. The Woods family enjoyed this home, raising their families for the next 2 to 4 decades.  After the Woods family, the home enjoyed the love of newlyweds starting a new family, a Korean War Veteran, and eventually, the socially well-known Eller family enjoyed the home. The Woods-Eller House has benefited from the love of a few additional families and tenants since the Eller family moved on, and each has left its mark on this charming, historic home.

    Now it is your turn to add your love to the tapestry that makes this home feel so inviting. Carefully updated in the last few months, you can move in and start making memories of your own. The Kitchen and Bathroom are fully renovated with new flooring, new tile, new cabinetry and fixtures, and new stainless steel appliances. The original hardwood floors have been sanded and refinished with fresh paint throughout the home. The heating and cooling system is updated with a new efficient heat pump, zoned between floors. The water lines and much of the plumbing and electrical are updated and brought up to code. A laundry closet and a sun porch were added to the main floor with a potter's shed down below. There isn't much of anything left for you to do except move in and enjoy!

    The Woods-Eller House is well situated in downtown Weaverville, only 10 minutes north of Asheville, NC.  Weaverville is a bustling small town with walkable neighborhoods, artisan shops, craft beer breweries, and several eclectic restaurants. Art walks, music events, and candlelight strolls are enjoyed throughout the year. A new community center offering classes and a farmers market is nearing completion. Weaverville and the surrounding mountains provide a lifestyle for you to enjoy and thrive.

    Welcome to your new home. It's been waiting for you!
