Bittersweet - Luxurious 4 King BDRM,4 En-Suite Baths, .5 Bath, SLPS 8 MAX.


Home Description

The definition of Bittersweet is a “sense of pleasure tinged with sadness.” This might be how you’ll feel when your stay ends and you must head back to the routine.

This warm and welcoming home is located approximately 15 minutes north-east of Downtown Asheville, 15 minutes from Black Mountain, 15 minutes to gates of Biltmore Estate, 20 minutes to UNC Asheville, 4 minutes to Warren Wilson College, 5 minutes to an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and 30 minutes to AVL Regional Airport. It is very close to groceries, gas, restaurants, and some of the BEST homemade ice cream you’ve ever eaten!

The owners do not permit events of any type, or size, to be held at their home.

Upon its approach, Bittersweet sits prominently up on your left. It’s artisan shutters and drip chains, professional landscaping; reveal this is no ordinary home. But, you are in for an extraordinary experience.
As you enter, you’ll discover a Vintage French Industrial look, with unique touches, comfortable furnishings, and warm tones. No detail has been overlooked for the comfort of our guests, right down to the cozy bathrobes.

Bittersweet boasts 4 king bedrooms, each with its own private en-suite tile bath; dual sinks, and resort style glass door enclosed showers, plush towels and blow dryers. You’ll sleep soundly on Tempur-Breeze Cooling mattresses with high-end linens and bedding, 4 king down pillows, complete with down comforters to snuggle under. Each bedroom has a flat panel TV discretely hidden behind custom cabinetry.

Outfitted with high-end stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, the open kitchen with dining area is the hub of the house, and a wonderful place to enjoy a meal together. The large dining table comfortably seats 8 guests in deliciously upholstered distressed brown leather chairs, bringing in elegance and comfort.

The den with flat panel TV, just off the kitchen, has several conversation areas allowing all to gather and visit to plan the next day. Or, sneak off to the living room, with another flat panel TV, to watch your special show, read a book, or have a quiet conversation in the comfy overstuffed wing chairs.

The outdoor space is AMAZING! At the center of it all is a large waterfall with the calming sound of falling water to add to the ambiance. The semi enclosed dining area, with flat panel TV, lends a bit of elegance to outdoor dining and is perfect for those days when the weather just isn’t cooperating. The covered outdoor area boasts a wood burning fireplace, flat panel TV, refrigerator, sink, gas grill, and more comfortable seating. This is everyone’s favorite place to be! Just off this area is also a wood burning fire pit.

Bittersweet; a sense of pleasure tinged with sadness…but that’s OK, you are always welcome to come back!

Can't Top Bittersweet!

Bittersweet is even more incredible in person....from the photos online, we were super impressed. Once we arrived, we were blown away by how amazing this home is. The staff at AVL Luxury Vacation Rentals were on top of everything and are so kind. We had a family reunion of 8 people who came from as close as NC & Georgia, and as far as California & Ecuador. It was a very special time.

This property exceeded all expectations!

This is a truly spectacular property! We were thrilled with the spacious outdoor living space with room to lounge and dine while listening to the soothing sound of the waterfall. The house itself is very well laid out, with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen and pantry were very well equipped and the entire house was very tastefully appointed. I highly recommend this property!

Cousin's Reunion

This was a wonderful place for our annual cousin's reunion. The home was beautiful, and the beds were probably the most comfortable of any place I've ever rented. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful outdoor area with the waterfall.

A Great Weekend in the Mountains

What a great property to visit. The home was as advertised and the attention to detail was remarkable. Three brothers and spouses enjoyed a long wedding weekend with family and could not have found a better place to stay. While the home was stunningly designed and decorated, it was the outdoor area that set the house apart. The backyard and numerous hiking trails allowed all to enjoy the early spring weather of Asheville. This was our first time in the area but are already looking forward to a return trip and would definitely look for an AVL property in the future.
