There are a great number of unusual houses in Asheville NC. The most unusual, of course, is the famed Biltmore Estate, ranked eighth in America’s Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects, and sits on some 8000 acres.
Having marketed unusual houses in the Asheville as well as Hendersonville NC since 1995, I am very familiar with the broad range of fun, unique, weird and wonderful properties in the area.
Take a look at this map to see the surrounding counties.
Buncombe County — where Asheville is located;
Henderson County — to the south and east with the quaint town of Hendersonville;
Haywood County — to the west, with wonderful Waynesville, just 20 minutes from Asheville;
Polk County — with the horse country of Tryon;
Transylvania County — with the beautiful college town of Brevard, and over 250 waterfalls!
Yancey County — to the north and east, with Burnsville;
You don’t have to drive far from Asheville to find unique properties. One such property is located in Waynesville. Named “Echo” by the owner, this property at 326 Howling Wolf Trail (not on GPS!) was given that name because she believed that “you get back what you put into something”.
With over 5800 square feet, this home with professional chef’s kitchen has every amenity you can imagine is priced almost $300,000 under appraised value!
