Last weekend I took my annual vacation with my college roomies. We typically venture to the North Carolina beaches-this year we explored Asheville, North Carolina, known for The Biltmore, beer, and (of course) beautiful doors!
We stayed at the Princess Anne Hotel, a quaint and historic inn nestled in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Buncombe county. Each evening we hiked the hills of this scenic neighborhood admiring the eclectic collection of homes lining the sidewalks and tucked within wooded lots. Any given street was sprinkled with houses boasting modern or historic elements, old or brand new construction, and anything in between. Here are just a few of the wonderful doors from my walks:
These next doors are from our excursions in downtown Asheville. The final picture in the series is of a painted door. I thought I’d found the ‘tiny doors of Asheville’, a challenge given me by a girlfriend who visited years before, but when I texted her my find she informed me I was incorrect in my discovery! Another trip is in order to track down those little doors…I can do this!
And this one last door I photographed simply because I liked the Sabèl adornment above the window. It reminds me of some of the European pharmacy signs I’ve seen. I cannot translate this and have no idea what the place is or was in a previous life. Do you?
Next week I will follow-up with doors from the Biltmore Estate. Click here to visit other bloggers who ogle over doors! We post our weekly findings with Norm @ Thursday Doors.
