ASHEVILLE – HGTV is back in Western North Carolina again, this time to highlight a luxury $3.2 million downtown condo in the Richard Smith Building.

Asheville is a favorite location of the real estate-focused channel, which has visited the city to film “House Hunters International,” an episode of “We Bought the Farm,” a home renovation series and even to give away a West Asheville home as part of a promotion.

This time the network has highlighted an available downtown dwelling as part of the monthlong Ultimate House Hunt 2021, an annual promotional sweepstakes.

Ultimate House Hunt showcases homes for sale in eight categories: Amazing Kitchens, Beachfront Homes, Countryside Retreats, Curb Appeal, Downtown Dwellings, Homes with a History, Outdoor Escapes and Waterside Homes. You can see all of the homes at

The 4,365-square-foot Asheville condo on display is represented by Brent Russell of

Beverly-Hanks Realtors and is a finalist for the Downtown Dwellings category. The luxury condo, at 75 Broadway St. #301, has “exposed beams and brick highlighted by an expansive library wall,” according to the listing. 

The condo also has wide plank flooring, which apparently hails from France, marble baths, Venetian plaster walls and direct elevator access, the listing says.

Designer Brian Patrick Flynn, left, and builder Jody Guokas, of JAG and Associates Construction, sit on the front porch of the HGTV Urban Oasis house in West Asheville shortly after it was completed in August 2015.

“It is very exciting that HGTV has recognized this home as a finalist in the Ultimate House Hunt 2021 Contest,” Russell said in a press release. “This recognition confirms and celebrates the unparalleled design and finishes in this downtown condominium.”
