A New Orleans-based elevator company installed in a mansion in Asheville has installed a 3,000-square-foot elevator that was installed to allow customers to enter the home.
The $3,600 elevator, which was built by North Carolina Elevator, was installed on March 10, according to an Asheville News & Observer report.
The elevator was installed by Asheville-based Elevator and Elevator Service, Inc., according to a news release from the company.
The company said the elevator is “an environmentally friendly and cost effective alternative to elevator access.”
The company noted that the elevator’s installation has not impacted its operations at the home or surrounding areas.
The news release said the house in Asheville was built in 1912.
It is currently owned by a group of former residents.
The house’s current owners purchased the home in 2016.
The new owners have not yet disclosed their financial arrangements with the owners.
The Asheville News-Journal previously reported that the house was built as a home for the family of a prominent Confederate general who led the Union Army during the Civil War.
