Canton - Beautifully Renovated Traditional Brick Home - This traditional brick home seamlessly combines modern amenities with original features and even has an amazing history. F. Scott Fitzgerald spent time in Asheville in the 1930's living at the Grove Park Inn. During that time, his typist James B Hurley owned and lived in this very house. "In 1936, having just graduated from Brown University with a BA in English, Hurley left his hometown of Providence, RI and went to North Carolina looking for work. He answered a classified ad to do some typing and found himself employed by F. Scott Fitzgerald!"

Georgeous hardwood floors, an updated kitchen, custom-designed second-floor bathroom and many other amenities will make this stately home a great choice for anyone wanting a lot of house for the money in a sweet little community just outside Asheville!
