    Description

    Located on a prominent corner in Kenilworth, this Craftsman Foresquare designed by Richard Sharp Smith (the resident architect for The Biltmore Estate) resides. Unmatched charm exudes through period details including stately boulder fireplace, bowed glass bay windows, original woodwork and hardwood floors throughout. The property features a carriage house with studio apartment above and workshop below and an actual trolley from Ashevilles electric streetcar era. 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. Located just outside Historic Biltmore Village and within 3 minutes of downtown Asheville, this home is a connection to Ashevilles notable past and the progress of the early 20th century. Carriage House to be shown for second appointments only.
