We built this home to house our family and friends as life presented itself. It has at different times housed, 3 generations of our family, 2 sets of friends at the same time, an aunt, an uncle, 2 sets of grandparents, and many other friends and family sporadically! :-)
We have a stone plaque that hangs outside the door that reads; 'Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.' This home was built to provide welcome and hospitality to all. We now hope that will hold true for many others as we open up this wonderful place for travelers from near and far visiting beautiful Asheville.
We chose Asheville to call home, and moved our family and our business down here in 1998. This is such an amazing location. We get all 4 seasons, but Spring and Fall are the most intense, which is just spectacular! Fairview, and the Falls at Edenderry afford quiet & privacy, the feel of living in the country, while only being 10 minutes from downtown Asheville. This is simply a great place to live, and a super place to visit.
This house exudes warmth and relaxation. The minute you drive into The Falls at Edenderry you feel the connection with nature, and the serenity related to all the water & trees. Walking into the timber frame, the warmth and welcome of the home overtakes you. The house is simply huge, affording plenty of privacy, while also promoting a sense of gathering, and sharing amongst friends and family. The home opens up to allow the sounds of the waterfall to cascade throughout, creating a calm and serene atmosphere.
