Enjoy country living only 20 minutes to downtown Asheville. This charming site built arts and crafts home offers quality and privacy on a large .68 acre lot with views of the gentle rolling hills that give Leicester its pastoral beauty. Open floor plan with hardwoods in the main living area features a large kitchen that opens onto the back porch, with a window over the sink to enjoy views of the garden and perhaps a chicken or two. Covered porches on the front and back allow for relaxing while listening to a summer rain shower or breathing in the gentle breezes that are the reason they call it "cool, green Asheville." The back porch is plumbed for gas hookup to the grill so you'll never have to run to the store at the last minute to fill the propane tank. Garage door enters into laundry/mud room for convenience on those days you feel like digging in the dirt.

Originally called Turkey Creek, the Leicester community was founded in 1829 with the establishment of a local post office. Frontiersman Leicester Chapman, an early Postmaster of that office, renamed the area for his own namesake, the Earl of Leicester. Today, the bucolic community is filled with local farms, artisans, and nature lovers who enjoy the quiet mountain views.

Average elevation is 2,165 feet above sea level with surrounding mountain elevations of up to 6,685 feet at Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River.
