Rare opportunity to own a significant piece of Kenilworth's rich history. Kenilworth was established as a "Pioneer Suburb" in 1914 and 86 Sherwood Road was constructed shortly thereafter in 1916. Kenilworth was an independent community until 1929, led by North Carolina's first female mayor, Leah Chiles. You can feel this independent spirit in the home and grounds. It truly stands apart. Replete with five bedrooms, three and a half baths plus a separate guest quarters and studio, you'll lack for nothing. Prepare elegant meals and entertain guests in the gourmet kitchen featuring a Bertazzoni Italian gas range, granite countertops and gleaming tile flooring. Multiple fireplaces invite you to relax and enjoy the mountain lifestyle. Entertain poolside in the European garden with original stonework walls intact. Take in mountain views from the upper terrace. All this just moments to downtown Asheville. This home is truly where you will live your best life in Asheville.
