Welcome to 633 Altamont View, Asheville
Witness the city’s history and future from this luxury home, where living and entertaining are easy.
In 1929, author Thomas Wolfe wrote a fictionalized account of his childhood in Asheville, NC. Dubbed Altamont, the town was described as ringed by the Blue Ridge, Pisgah, and Newfoundland mountains. Nearly a century later, the true city center, famed for its historic Art Deco architecture, can be seen from 633 Altamont View on Reynolds Mountain, a home ringed by blue-tinted mountains.
This exceptional home, built by Morgan Keefe builders and designed by architect Alice Dodson, offers rare 180-degree views of downtown Asheville, Beaver Lake, and the French Broad River from nearly every room in the house. Sunsets and mountain views are amazing year round, and the city lights at night are spectacular!
The European-style architecture is reminiscent of a French chateau, and the home has quality and elegant features to match. The cobblestone drive leads to a three-car garage with staging access to the largest patio, designed for catering and service use. Five bedrooms each include en suite baths and are designed for comfort and privacy. Radiant floor heating on the main and lower levels can be adjusted by room for each person’s temperature preference.
Living and entertaining are made easy with a media room, wine cellar with tasting room, bar and entertainment area, and a spa/exercise room with a hot tub. Extensive outdoor living areas include screened porch off the breakfast area, large patio with outdoor fireplace for outdoor gatherings, main-level deck with arbor to enjoy the expansive views, and lower-level patio for quiet evenings. There is a space for you to feel at home no matter what your mood, from cozy evenings to large-scale entertaining!
With a population of 87,000, Asheville is the largest city in both Buncombe County and Western North Carolina. Asheville serves as the area’s economic and cultural nerve center in many ways, including as a hub for education, healthcare, local arts and crafts, entertainment, and innovative food and drink. The four-season temperate climate with average snowfall of only 13 inches makes year-round living easy, and the broad range of elevations and corresponding climates and plant growth (both in town and around the area) make it one of the most biodiverse in the United States and the world.
