Dream House

 Many of us have wandered through a neighborhood and said "That’s my dream house!" It might be a stately Tudor, a grand mansion or a charming 1930s bungalow. The Montford neighborhood of Asheville is full of candidates ranging from Arts & Crafts cottages to sprawling Victorians like this one. Nestled within a shady garden, it possesses features on many a person's fantasy Dream House Wish List: a large front porch, a turret and even a porte cochere. Let’s not think about the painting and scraping and inevitable repairs. Instead, let's dream of sitting on that porch or enjoying the view from the room with the turret.
