WLOS Home of the Week: 615 Rose Hill Road

Welcome to 615 Rose Hill Road, Asheville

Own a piece of history with this truly unique home just six minutes from downtown Asheville!

Known as the John Sorrells House, this circa-1914 farmhouse was originally owned and operated by Mr. Sorrells, who also ran a store (once across the street) and a gas-powered grist mill at the location. A historical resources study from 1990 called the property “an important part of the development of the [Reynolds] community.”

Today, the surrounding community is much changed, but the home retains its historic value. Visitors will notice the original, beautifully restored bead board throughout, as well as hardwoods, a Tuscan wrap-around porch, a pellet stove and fireplace both updated with flagstone, and a breathtaking three-story wood staircase in the foyer. The home is so close to Asheville, yet outside city limits, and sits levelly on almost a full acre with mature trees.
