I retired from Unilever in ’04 after a 33 year career in sales management/marketing. We relocated from Atlanta to Asheville since my wife and I were both from North Carolina and we fell in love with this area. We started with Unilever in Greenville, NC and lived in Charlotte, NC. Richmond , VA. Annapolis, MD. Yardley, PA. and New York before we landed in Atlanta for 13 years. We have two daughters- Etta and Farris.
Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2002
Why Owner/Manager chose Swannanoa
We bought this property because of the beauty of the area! When we purchased the property it had “Our House” and “My Roundette”. We added 16 acres adjoining to the 8 that was originally purchased. We renovated both the houses using old wood from barns we acquired in the area, wormy chestnut and oak mostly. In 06’ we decided to build another house higher up on the mountain and share “Our House” with others thru vacation rental. Our company, The Cove at Fairview, was started in early 07’. In the fall of 08’ we began renting “My Roundette” that became available when our youngest daughter married and then purchased a house close by. The company was started by the desire to have both daughters remain in this area working with us, therefore we became a family business!
