Secreted into the heart of the city – an industrial 2-bedroom loft, cloaked within the confines of a one-way alley, long known only to the real Asheville. A block once devoted to agriculture, today ensconced within the multicultural vibe of downtown. A modern-yet-historic, industrial-while-inviting, convenient-but-secluded (as cities go) kind of place.

The space
This is 35 Carolina Lane. This is a historic and quintessential Asheville loft: Two bedrooms. One bathroom. And heaps of history: A aged brick façade. Wizened wood floors. An antique clawfoot tub. Stone underfoot. Heavy old doors. All those oh-the-stories-we-could-tell details you crave.

This is 35 Carolina Lane. This is a thoroughly updated industrial loft, modernized for today’s traveler: Professional design. Combed concrete walls. Custom artwork. Bold colors. Partitioned walls. Modern appliances. A fully equipped kitchen. Both heat and air-conditioning. A dedicated washer/dryer. All those must-haves you expect.

Welcome to a tiny corner of the world where you can have your cake and eat it, too – to a loft where you can surround yourself in history without forgoing modern amenities. Where you can retreat to your own private space while surrounded by one of Asheville’s most sought-after micro-neighborhoods.

Where you can feel at home, in your away-from-home. Welcome!

Asheville, North Carolina, United States

☀☀☀ LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! ☀☀☀
If you’ve ever wandered through downtown Asheville, then you’ve felt the wanderlust (and “wonder-lust)” of this historic warren.

Here, connecting two of the city’s most sought-after streets – W. Walnut and Woodfin/Hiawassee – Carolina Lane is a quiet (for the city) alley, long known to the real Asheville. This is where Oscar winning actress Frances McDormond conspicuously smoked her cigarettes after a day of filming in the area and industry once reigned. And this neighborhood? Well, it’s still a place where restaurants go unadvertised and the best bars have no signs, just a door. A place where high-end art galleries about record shops, upscale shoe stores, and more.

And, while Real Life may be about compromise – sacrifice This to get That – we believe that vacation should be a special time. A time you get both This and That, no compromise required.

35 Caroline Lane is your no-compromise-required destination: both urban and urbane, situated right in the beating heart of our vibrant city. Enveloped by the energy and excitement of downtown life, Unit 33 Carolina Lane embodies and embraces the Asheville scene – a scene that draws designers and artists, creatives and music lovers, foodies and artisanal beverage aficionados alike.

Here’s what awaits:

Dining: Asheville is a food-and-drink dream – there’s a reason Livability.com named us a Top 10 Foodie City! – and from 35 Carolina, you’re just minutes to much of your must-eat list, including Rhubarb, Curate, Table, Laughing Seed, Posana, Wicked Weed and Mamacita’s.

Shopping: Royal Peasantry and Earth Magick are one street over, while Honeypot Vintage, the Downtown Asheville Tea Room, and Hip Replacements Clothing, among other must-see shops, are located just around the block.
Urban Trail Art Tour: Art lovers, put yourself right in the center of Asheville’s Urban Trail, a 1.7-mile walking tour home to 30+ stops at creative landmarks, public sculptures, dioramas, and more.

Festivals: From Downtown After Five (once a month, in summer) and the Lexington Avenue Arts Fest, to Drum Circle and Art in the Park, downtown Asheville, Lexington Avenue, and the River Arts District are ripe with arts, culture, and creative pursuits.

Chicken Alley: Stray chickens no longer roam downtown Asheville, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pay a visit to historic Chicken Alley, just behind 35 Carolina Lane.

Growing up Santa Fe, NM I saw a unique blend of artistic community, endless outdoor opportunities, interesting history, beautiful landscapes, and a diverse mix of cultures. Though far from Santa Fe and a different climate, I arrived in Asheville in the early 90’s to practice Chinese Medicine and felt some of the same elements at play. Asheville was not well known, but you could feel the energy building and the mixture of art, landscape, environment, history and community all coming together. It reminded me of my ‘early days’ in Santa Fe. One of my closest friends was Andy Brokmeyer, who I told for several years that he needed to come to Asheville, as it was a dynamic and exciting place. We were also avid kayakers, and Asheville has been a Mecca for kayaking since the early days of the sport so I knew I could lure him out with the promise of all the great rivers in the area. He came out ‘for a visit’ and hasn’t left. That was 16 years ago. Asheville has grown into the most happening place in the region, far beyond my expectations, and has sustained an authentic, community oriented and dynamic quality. Like my dad used to say about few places, it has ‘cultural energy’. Though both Andy and I had done some residential real estate investment and development, 80 N Lexington was our first move into the commercial side. It was an old building, greatly in need of repair, and was a bit removed from the core downtown commercial traffic. We scraped together what we could and fixed it up, with an eye towards something special in the future. Now, many years later, North Lexington Ave is hopping, with restaurants, breweries, bars, tea houses, coffee shops, galleries and wonderful, diverse retail shops right out the door. And 80 N Lexington has been transformed into a blend of funky, hip, and industrial intertwined with lush, upscale design. A mix of style and comfort that is unique and authentically Asheville. Just like Asheville, there’s nothing quite like it.
