Why it's for sale Marlan has visited Asheville, N.C., enough times to fall in love with the region. Now she's ready to start a new life there. "The mountains are calling me," she says.

Leaving this sunlit seven-room Tudor is not a decision that was made lightly. Marlan, 67, spent most of her life in the house, which has a new bathroom and updated plumbing and electric service. The house has three bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms, a full basement, a fireplace, a walk-up attic and an attached, one-car garage:

"I've been told this house is an architectural delight. We haven't done anything to mar its integrity. We pulled up vinyl tile to expose beautiful wood floors. . . . I love my little office. It was originally called a sun parlor. . . . I've made a parlor out of my formal dining room. . . . The express train is 22 minutes to Penn Station."
