Historic Homes in the Asheville Area

The Asheville area is famed for beautiful architecture comprising historic homes, art deco buildings and neighborhoods that are on the National Registry of Historic Places. In the late 19th century, George Vanderbilt brought artisans and designers to create the Biltmore Estate; many of them stayed, and as Asheville’s beauty and fame as a vacation and healing destination spread, even more designers and craftsmen of world-renowned came to the Blue Ridge Mountains and created the picturesque city we have today. Mosaic has agents who are well-educated in historic properties and understand the special architectural nuances of buildings from varied eras. For sellers, we know that marketing a historic home starts with telling its story, but equally important, preparing buyers to expect and understand quirks specific to historic-home inspections is paramount to a smooth closing.
