18 Eclipse Drive off Tunnel Road in Asheville is a modern masterpiece brought back to life by well known local design/build owner, Dustin Cogswell with DC Construct, Inc. Originally built in 1981, this home has had a $465,000 “face-lift” and was completed in 2018. The remodeling project was a complete makeover including new plumbing, electrical, HVAC and all new plumbing and lighting fixtures as well. Other notable new features include a new architectural shingle roof, new aluminum clad Jeld-Wen windows, Thermatru and Rogue Valley exterior doors, and new LP Smart Siding exterior. Exterior design elements blend rough-sawn beams, structural steel components, new structural foundation shoring with a lifetime guarantee, and newly built exterior decks on both main and lower levels.
Inside the home, you’ll fall in love with the new Marsh Furniture cabinetry made nearby and quartz countertops throughout the kitchen and baths. Gorgeous custom locally milled wormy maple flooring on the top three levels of the home give a rustic but refined mountain warmth to the decor. The floorplan is composed of three levels with a completely finished basement on the lowest level. The top floor showcases the master suite which features a connected bonus room suitable for office, master closet extension, or even a nursery. With architectural corner windows to frame the view and vaulted ceilings, the master suite is a showstopper! The master bath features separate double vanities, ceramic tile flooring and shower surround, and a contemporary soaking tub with an outstanding view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.
On the main level, an open floor plan connects the kitchen, dining, and living room with two sets of double doors leading out to the massive rear deck overlooking the Beaverdam Valley below. The entry foyer and hallway are especially impressive with a double story atrium style foyer with contemporary metal railing work leading the eye up to the master suite level above. Downstairs, three bedrooms share a full bath and an entire deck system reaching the full length of the home. Finally, the lowest level of the home is a fully finished basement which is plumbed for a full bath if needed. This level could be a bedroom suite ready for VRBO, a gym, a playroom for the kids, or the quintessential “Man-Cave”! Since the guidelines for marketing are governed by septic permits, the home can only be marketed in our local MLS as a 3 bedroom home, however, it really has 5 bedrooms!!
18 Eclipse Drive is located with Town Mountain Estates, a small community of only 28 homes, located just off prestigious Town Mountain Drive. Less than a 5 minute drive to downtown, this area is known for prestigious homes with amazing views, yet so close to thriving downtown Asheville, the “Paris of the South”. Homeowner’s fees are only $300 per year and even then, they are voluntary. The Homeowner’s Association meets annually and it’s primary function is maintenance of the roads. The HOA even owns its own snow plow equipment for the infrequent wintry days in the mountains.
This amazing home has recently been appraised by the Seller and is priced below recent appraisal value. It is situated on .28 acres and can be purchased with that acreage or to also include the adjacent .38 acres totalling .66 acres. The design/builder is also available for consultation if you would like to make any changes, including redesigning the kitchen to enlarge it and to potentially open it up to include part of the massive laundry/pantry area, or to add a third full bath in the finished basement.
18 Eclipse Drive is a wonderful retreat at the end of a dead-end street with no through traffic and the protection of the adjacent lot. It’s vantage place overlooking Beaverdam Valley with the Blue Ridge Mountains framed in the distance is breathtaking. Pair that amazing vantage point with masterful modern design and you’ll see why this is such a special and exciting home!
