Pardon us while we fangirl. In this year’s Ultimate House Hunt — HGTV’s global competitive showcase of extraordinary homes — four homes in the Asheville area were selected as finalists.

Now through Tues., Aug. 2, there’s daily voting to select the winning homes, which are grouped across eight categories, including Downtown Dwellings, Curb Appeal, and Countryside Retreat. Ready for a tour? We sure are.

Downtown Dwellings: 23 Rankin Avenue

This two bedroom, two bath luxury condo — located above what is now Bold Rock Hard Cider’s downtown taproom — has received praise for the way it elegantly blends modern + classic architecture. A few notable features: exposed brick walls, floor-to-ceiling wood trusses, leathered granite countertops, hemlock floors, and a private 2,000 sqft deck. See more photos and take a video walk-through of the space.

Want to call this place home? It’s currently listed for $2.9 million by Julie Smith and Todd Kaderabek.

Curb Appeal: 215 Kimberly Avenue

This white colonial-style four bedroom-four bathroom home, which is part of the Grove Park neighborhood, features a brick walkway through the front yard, an impeccably landscaped lawn, a lavish kitchen with an abundance of natural light, and a stunning, short-term rental carriage house. It was purchased for $2.6 million this past May. See more photos.

Countryside Retreat: 10 Creek Hollow Court

Yes, that’s a turret you’re looking at. This stone mansion — nestled within The Cliffs of Walnut Cove — contains four ensuite bedrooms, a movie theater, a chef kitchen, and a spacious great room. The outside is just as outlandish, boasting a zipline and putting green across two acres of land. It was purchased for $4.7 million this past June. See more photos.

Countryside Retreat: 16 Boot Lake Lane, Brevard

This two bedroom-two bath mountain home is a midcentury modern fantasy. Sitting pretty in the Sherwood Forest community, highlights of the home include a wraparound deck, warm wood siding, crisp geometric architecture, and a lakeside property. There’s also a recreation room and an intimate patio area perfect for stargazing. It was purchased for $1.2 million this past May. See more photos.
