  • Built by local craftsmen at a time when homes were built to last centuries, not just decades
  • Much of the original siding, flooring, wainscoting, bead board ceilings and more still remain
  • Designated as a Treasured Tree Preserve for the abundance of centuries old trees that grace the property
  • Close to shopping, restaurants, schools and parks, yet nestled in pastoral splendor

Unlike today's sterile, modern homes, an old home has a warm and comforting character all its own. They have a story to tell if you only listen. Built around 1914, this Queen Road farmhouse has seen a lot of love and witnessed many stories. The antique brass on the front door has been rubbed to a soft glow from over a century of people passing over its threshold. The original pine floors remain in most of the house, the wainscoting, the shingle and board & baton siding and much of the lumber used to build this home was milled by local craftsmen from timber harvested right here on the surrounding land. The bead board ceilings have been restored by current owners from years of wallpaper. The farm sink has listened in on many conversations where many childhood problems have been solved. The window glass still retains the ripple of hand-blown glass and the memory of nose smudges from little kids peering out into the world.  

The land is level and contains many old growth trees, many that predate the house. The property has been designated as a “Treasured Tree Preserve” due to the stately Cedar, Oak and Walnut trees that grace the property. Visiting wildlife will raid your gardens and nest down in your woods.

Once considered very rural, 45 Queen Road has become quite the oasis in a suburban setting. Close to schools, shopping, restaurants and parks, you are never far from today’s needs.

An updated vintage home that still retains its original charm is hard to find. The electric was updated in the 1990’s, the heating system in 2018, city water service has been installed and the septic was rebuilt in 2010. The important stuff has been taken care of. The rest is waiting for you to decide and add your imprint to the history of this home!

About Susan

My husband and I have made our home in the peaceful mountains of Western North Carolina since 1992 where we worked together in the running of our home remodeling business. Together we have built 4 homes and renovated another as well as renovated countless homes for clients. I have always taken an active part in the design and building of these homes. From hanging ridge rafters to laying hardwood floors, I have gained a great deal of respect and understanding of what goes into a well-built home. This love of homes and home construction is what led me to become a Real Estate Broker in 2003 and later a General Contractor. I am also active in canine sports, competing with my golden retrievers and organizing obedience trials as well as serving time on the board (past treasurer) of the Sandlapper Golden Retriever Club.  In addition, I am a stained glass artist and I take much pride and satisfaction in designing and creating glass art that I often donated to benefit rescues and canine health research.

Since starting my Real Estate Career long ago, I have won many sales awards and more importantly to me, several Quality Service Awards. For several years I was Broker in Charge of a small office, managing 9 other agents. Feeling the need to get back to what I love about real estate, I stepped down as the managing broker in 2017 so I could concentrate on 
my clients and their needs as a Broker Associate. I am now working with Sterling Real Estate Partners because of their creativity, marketing technology, customer service and their stellar reputation in the Asheville and surrounding markets.

I specialize in Residential Homes, Small Farms and Land Tracks with a special passion for Vintage Homes. When marketing a Vintage home, or helping a buyer with a purchase of one, you can expect a full essay on the "genealogy" of your home. One of my many obsessions is tracking the history of Asheville's older homes. My years working as a carpenters assistant as well as my beginnings in the marketing field will be used to your benefit when you are selling or buying a home. Of course for dog owners, my 20+ years of training and competing with my own dogs has given me an understanding that often a fenced yard for Puppy is not enough. Sometimes we need a bit more. For both sellers and buyers I recognize the unique needs that many of us
have for ourselves and with our homes.
