An Enchanted Place in Asheville Called Storybrooke
If you are looking to get away from the cares of the world, travel to the enchanted world of Storybrooke Place. This is a one-of a kind luxurious way to experience Asheville. Located conveniently in South Asheville, the home is close to everything yet worlds away. From the minute you go up the stone pathway and staircase and the front door to the home, you are whisked away. Enjoy a vacation from the ordinary and experience a trip to the extraordinary.
This Arts and Crafts home surrounds you with beauty, opulence and master craftsmanship. The moment you walk into the foyer, you will feel as though you have entered another era - the timeless, classic furnishing, the wide plank floors, the tulip theme found in the antique windows and woodwork, the intricate attention to detail - it all harkens to another time, a magical time. Every room in this exquisite home has something spectacular and unique. Even something as seemingly mundane as a doorway has a rich history here. From the front door to the back, all of the Storybrooke doors are antique and reclaimed from a convent in Minnesota.
Upon entering the grand front door and heading up the stairs, the gourmet kitchen beckons. The Viking gas range is professional grade. The beautiful counter tops are imported stone from Jerusalem. The kitchen backsplash is antique French Terracotta Parefeuille tile. This kitchen space is inspiring. Spend quality time in this luxurious kitchen creating culinary delights for your family then invite them all into dining area to sit at the beautiful mission-style oak table and partake of a special meal cooked with love.
Adjourn to the great room with its timeless Stickley furnishings and recollect together about all the wonderful Asheville adventures of the day or gather in the sunroom to bask in the warmth from Romford fireplace and from beautiful light streaming in from the antique windows. And later, everyone can head down to the lower level entertainment room for a game of pool on the ornate Brunswick table from the early 1900s or cuddle up and watch a film (perhaps a black and white classic) on the flat-screen positioned above the warm wood-burning stove.
An evening walk along the enchanting landscaped property is a perfect way to end the day. The grounds provide a great backdrop to a starry night. Who knows? You might even get to make a wish on a falling star. When it’s time to hit the pillow, the luxurious high-end bedding will have you sleeping like royalty. The master bedroom on the main level has an oak king bed and an inviting fireplace. The attached full bath is awash with natural light and has a beautiful pedestal bathtub that is the ultimate in refined relaxation. The queen bedroom on the lower level has a wonderful bed for curling up with a good book. Also on the lower level, the third bedroom has built-in bunk beds for four along with a sturdy oak ladder. Kids can lean in, whisper stories, and giggle until way late in the night all nestled in their warm bunks.
