1950’s Mid Century Modern in Kenilworth Forest

Kenilworth Forest is a hidden gem in east Asheville located on the opposite side of the lake from Kenilworth.  Kenilworth Forest has some wonderful 50s and 60s homes and you can find a deal if you are willing to renovate. It’s even possible to find a home with a lake view or dock access if you keep your eyes on the market and act fast. As you might guess, these homes tend to move quickly. Here’s one that is currently on the market.


8 East Shore Drive
Currently Listed at $637,000

Built in 1956, 4 bedrooms,
3 baths, 2867 Sq Ft, .73 Acres

This wonderful home has all the features that I love about a mid-century home. Vaulted, beamed ceilings, walls of windows, relaxing outdoor spaces and two gas log fireplaces. There’s also a finished lower level that could easily be an in-law suite. The yard is stunning with the lake view and there’s a dock and lake access across the street that are part of this property. Very special!

Please contact me for more information about this home. I’d love to help you find a great mid century home but if Arts and Crafts, Historic or Green-Built homes are more to your liking, I can help you find that too.
