Listed in the National Historic Registry, this remarkable home was designed by famed architect Richard Sharp Smith, supervising architect of the Biltmore House and Basilica of St. Lawrence. Built in 1898 and known as the Nichols / Rogers house, 85 N Liberty is the largest of Smith’s creations in Chestnut Hills. Several additions, unfavorable to the original design, were added when the house was converted into a multi-unit apartment house. Original design of main structure measures approx. 4900 sq ft., presenting 5 bedrooms upstairs, living space downstairs. A fire in an upstairs, rear bedroom in August 2017 affected roughly 1% of the home's upper level and much of the roof. Listed very near tax value of $627,600, this property won't last long. West facing, large lot with views of Sunset Mountain and Town Mountain from the back yard/porch. Walk to Downtown Asheville, grocery stores and restaurants, school.
