Thank you for your interest in Leicester House. This authentic cedar
log home is just 12 minutes from downtown Asheville on a mountain top
with views that exceed 50 miles. Nestled in the woods and perched on
a mountain, Leicester House offers unobstructed views of the Newfound
River valley and a succession of mountainous ridges extending as far
as you can see.

Leicester House is a completely modern yet rustic 3-bedroom, 2-bath
cedar log home sitting on over 8 acres of undeveloped, wooded land
filled with rhododendrons and a variety of deciduous trees. Although
the house was only first built in 1996, a full reconstruction was
recently completed from new hardwood floors to glistening sky
lights. Leicester House is in immaculate condition - it's clean,
everything works, and it's just plain gorgeous!

Leicester House has the best of all worlds - close enough drop in to
funky Asheville, the Biltmore Estate, and the Great Smoky Mountains,
and yet worlds away with absolute privacy and the feeling of being on
top of the world.

No smoking is permitted in or on the grounds of Leicester House. I
will consider a well-behaved family pet with advanced consideration.

Leicester House is a truly beautiful and serene place. It is
completely modern in all of its appurtenances but rustic in its
serene and captivating setting. This home is top of the line. Like
everyone who visits, I'm certain that you too will enjoy Leicester



The house is premium in its location, its setting, and its amenities
which include:

+ Completely modern and equipped open-floorplan kitchen with large
side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, stove, microwave, lots of cupboard
and counter space, and stocked with dishes, glasses, silverware,
cookware and all types of kitchen gadgets. The wide countertop
separating the kitchen from the living room is a bar that seats four.

+ Dining area that seats 6 very comfortably.

+ Two bedrooms on the main floor, sharing a full bath with
tub/shower; the other bedroom is a full loft with skylights and its
own private, full bath with shower.

+ 1,400 square feet of living space.

+ Beautiful hardwood floors in kitchen, dining and living rooms.

+ Fresh clean and comfortable Berber carpet in the bedrooms.

+ Warm tile in the bathrooms.

+ Gas fireplace with variable speed, circulating blower that easily
heats the open floorplan of Leicester House.

+ Entertainment center with CD/DVD player, 7.1 in-wall surround
sound, and high-definition television. There are lots of DVD's at
the house, but please note that there is not cable or satellite TV at
Leicester House. I've found that watching TV is the last thing
people want to do while visiting Leicester House and Asheville.

+ Large windows that provide ambient light and beautiful views.

+ Wraparound front and side deck where you can relax in the sun, gaze
out over the mountains and valleys, and listen to the year-round
stream gurgle by.

+ Outdoor 5-person hot tub with 50-mile views.

+ Separate and secluded back deck that looks into a forest of

+ Gas grill on the back deck for grilling out.

+ Full size washer and dryer in a separate utility room off the
kitchen, complete with lots of pantry storage space.

+ Central heat and air conditioning, although air conditioning is
rarely needed because Leicester House sits at a refreshing 3,000 feet
in altitude.

+ Ceiling fans with remote control.

+ Recent reconstruction means that everything in Leicester House is
immaculately clean and in excellent condition. I hope you'll help me
keep it this way, thank you.



Leicester House has the best of all worlds! It sits atop a mountain,
at the end of a private road, overlooking the world where privacy is
guaranteed. And, when you want to get out and explore, downtown
Asheville is only 12 minutes away from Leicester House! Biltmore
Estate is 15 minutes away. The Great Smoky Mountains are only a 20
minute drive from Leicester House. There is so much to do and see in
the Asheville, WNC area that you'll have plenty to draw you out of
the house.

But when chilling out is needed, Leicester House beckons you home.
Relax in the outdoor hot tub while enjoying the views of the world
below. Enjoy cooking in the gourmet kitchen and entertaining in the
open floor plan. Sit on the deck and count the number of mountain
ridges you can see from Leicester House.

Any and everything you'd like to do in and around Asheville is within
a quick and easy drive from Leicester House. It's close to
everything, but feels far, far away from it all.
