33 Carolina Lan: High Design Loft on Historic Downtown Alley + Free Parking


Over 1,300 square-feet and two loft bedrooms, 33 Carolina Lane – a block once dedicated to agricultural industry, today a multi-cultural gathering spot – offers modern amenities and industrial design, with just the right touch of history: Curated artwork and pops of color, designer furnishings and massive flat-screen TVs, exposed ducts and lofted ceilings – all, in perfect balance with wizened walls and striking wood floors, layered with the patina of the past.

2 King Beds / 1 Full Bath 1,300 sq. ft Private Residential Loft + One Free Off Street Parking Space a block away

Well, you’ve found it.

Welcome to the Holy Grail of Asheville travel: A 2BR loft in the heart of downtown’s shopping district, yet cloaked within the confines of a one-way alley. Quiet (for the city). Historic. Central. The very essence of Asheville’s local core.

This is everyday life, as it’s always been lived. This is Asheville life, as you want to live it.

Because, in a city of micro-neighborhoods, 33 Carolina Lane is exactly where and what you want it to be: A historic building, renewed to industrial-chic design standards. A spacious loft, with enough privacy for two couples. A slice of history, ripe for your experience.

Outside your lime-green front door, downtown Asheville awaits. Step into your own little alley, and you’re just steps from the beating heart of Asheville’s dining, shopping, and cultural scene. From speakeasies and fine dining, to hip shopping and year-round festivals, 33 Carolina Lane puts you within walking distance of all things Asheville.

Yes, you’ve definitely found it. Welcome!

Industrial Loft-Chic Design
In a word, 33 Carolina Lane is curated.

Recently renovated and professionally designed, this home is not quite like anything you’ve ever experienced before. Layered over a patina of history – agricultural industry once reigned on Carolina Lane – the loft is a perfect balance of old and new, past and present.

Combed concrete walls share space with decades-old doors. Timeworn wood floors support modern furnishings. Industrial windows are now layered with reflective privacy mirroring.

And every detail has been hand-picked, curated, and carefully chosen: We have rummaged through estate sales, researched Asheville history, and requested custom pieces, to create a space that speaks to Asheville and to you.

This is your home-away-from home. A 2-bedroom loft thickly layered in texture, color, and legacy. And always, with a nod to modern expectations: A gas stove. Two TVs (60” and 50”) – and each bedroom, with private TV viewing. A washer/dryer. Handpicked local art. A custom headboard. Details, everywhere.

33 Carolina Lane is where modern meets old world, and it couldn’t be any more Asheville. This is the perfect complement to your downtown experience.


If you’ve ever wandered through downtown Asheville, then you’ve felt the wanderlust (and “wonder-lust)” of this historic warren.

Here, connecting two of the city’s most sought-after streets – W. Walnut and Woodfin/Hiawassee – Carolina Lane is a quiet (for the city) alley, long known to the real Asheville. This is where Oscar winning actress Frances McDormond conspicuously smoked her cigarettes after a day of filming in the area and industry once reigned. And this neighborhood? Well, it’s still a place where restaurants go unadvertised and the best bars have no signs, just a door. A place where high-end art galleries about record shops, upscale shoe stores, and more.

And, while Real Life may be about compromise – sacrifice This to get That – we believe that vacation should be a special time. A time you get both This and That, no compromise required.

33 Carolina Lane is your no-compromise-required destination: both urban and urbane, situated right in the beating heart of our vibrant city. Enveloped by the energy and excitement of downtown life, Unit 33 Carolina Lane embodies and embraces the Asheville scene – a scene that draws designers and artists, creatives and music lovers, foodies and artisanal beverage aficionados alike.

Here’s what awaits:
Dining: Asheville is a food-and-drink dream – there’s a reason Livability named us a Top 10 Foodie City! – and from 33 Carolina, you’re just minutes to much of your must-eat list, including Rhubarb, Curate, Table, Laughing Seed, Posana, Wicked Weed and Mamacita’s.

Shopping: Royal Peasantry and Earth Magick are one street over, while Honeypot Vintage, the Downtown Asheville Tea Room, and Hip Replacements Clothing, among other must-see shops, are located just around the block.
Urban Trail Art Tour: Art lovers, put yourself right in the center of Asheville’s Urban Trail, a 1.7-mile walking tour home to 30+ stops at creative landmarks, public sculptures, dioramas, and more.

Festivals: From Downtown After Five (once a month, in summer) and the Lexington Avenue Arts Fest, to Drum Circle and Art in the Park, downtown Asheville, Lexington Avenue, and the River Arts District are ripe with arts, culture, and creative pursuits.
Chicken Alley: Stray chickens no longer roam downtown Asheville, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pay a visit to historic Chicken Alley, just behind 33 Carolina Lane.


Easy Parking
The Loft includes one free off-street designated parking space one block away in a private parking lot.

This is an urban setting within sight and sound of busy bars, restaurants, breweries and music venues. If you are looking for a completely quiet location at all hours, this may not be a perfect fit for you. Carolina Lane is a one way alley, with very little available parking . But our guests have access to one free designated space, just a block away! On Carolina Lane, there are is a 30 minute loading zone Monday -Friday, 9am-5pm, plus a couple parking spaces within 25 feet of the entrance to the loft. These are rarely available though, so plan your arrival accordingly with a quick drop off of a few things, then proceed to the parking space a block away. Vehicles should not be parked in a way that prohibit thru-traffic.
