Asheville, NC fixer upper! Desirable Grove Park area. Circa 1920. $325,000

February 28, 2019

Asheville, North Carolina fixer upper! Rare to find one of these up there! You might be thinking the price seems high considering the work that needs to be done, but considering it’s in the Grove Park area, it’s fairly reasonable. But I bet there is wiggle room on the price if someone with restoration experience made an offer. Situated near Grove Park Inn and five minutes to downtown Asheville. Many original features are still intact, but this restoration will not be for the faint of heart! There are living quarters in the basement which could make a great guest area. Nice mountain views. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 2,661 square feet. $325,000

From the Zillow listing:


Historic Grove Park home ready for major restoration! Grand spaces, high ceilings and many original finishes and features intact. Incredible potential for right buyer who loves old homes and can handle MAJOR level work. Currently a 4 bedroom home – would be ideal 3 bedroom post remodel. Also has basement quarters which could become great home stay, in-law or guest suite. Will be full major remodel requiring all systems to be replaced and all interior and exterior surfaces touched including buildout of space for parking. Potential is amazing – winter and potentially year round mountain views, low maintenance wooded landscape in wonderful Grove Park location just off Sunset near Grove Park Inn and 5 minutes to downtown. BUT, this is a MAJOR project requiring $300K+ investment post closing.
