WEST JEFFERSON — Downtown West Jefferson’s newest luxury lofts were unveiled to the public and welcomed to the Ashe County Chamber of Commerce Thursday, May 30th at its open house and ribbon cutting.

The pair of lofts is located above the Pretty ‘n Pearls boutique and the Southern Shine Raw Juice Bar. The property is owned by Randy and Kathy Bates, while the space was designed and transformed by Andrea Witherspoon of Regency Properties.

“Everything you see in here, even down to the spoons, she’s done in 10 weeks,” Randy Bates said.

The lofts received rave reviews at the event, with Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kitty Honeycutt saying she was blown away by the looks of the lofts.

There are two suites available, one being around 1,400-square-feet and the other roughly 1,600. The lofts are aimed to be rented for a few nights at a time by visitors to Ashe County. Witherspoon said the lofts are available through their own site and Airbnb.
