Asheville Craftsman Foresquare by Richard Sharp Smith

This fine Craftsman Foresquare designed by Richard Sharp Smith is located on a prominent corner in Kenilworth. Its unmatched charm exudes through period details including stately boulder fireplace, bowed glass bay windows, original woodwork, and hardwood floors throughout. This 2.5 story home was originally built as the Meriwether Estate and was also used as a boarding lodge, The Sherwood Inn. Look closely at the second floor doors to see the former room numbers, and signs from the Inn will convey.

The property features a carriage house (372 square feet) with studio apartment above and workshop below, and an actual decommissioned trolley from Asheville’s electric streetcar era.  Located just outside Historic Biltmore Village and within 3 minutes of downtown Asheville, this home is a connection to Asheville’s notable past and the progress of the early 20th century. Exclusively listed by Broker Asheville of Keller Williams.
