Property description

The windows and detail of the architecture is what sold us on this property. The main house has a large beautiful master suite with a wall of windows that look to the mountains. The living room has the same enormous view and even standing in the driveway behind the house you can look straight through to see the mountains on the other side. Purchased and newly furnished in 2013, you will enjoy 1st class yet comfortable accommodations. The three decks of the main house draw you outside and the 72 inch smart screen TV will entertain on a rainy day. New gas grill and a large family picnic table is waiting or you can cook a great meal in the beautiful fully equipped kitchen of the main house. The cottage is fully equipped as well.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live east of Cleveland, Ohio in a little country burg called Leroy. No mountains there but it is still pretty special with 5 acres of woods. Our lives reached an unprecedented level of happiness this year as our first grandchild was born. We have been married for 34 years and worked together in our own business for 25 years. Jim is an inspirational speaker and business coach and has written 3 motivational novels. We have worked together to create interactive in-house training programs and are known for seminars and teambuilding events that making learning and communicating fun. Jim graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Landscape Architecture and landscaping has always been our hobby. Though we have only just begun, the landscape at Highwoods has his signature look now and you will recognize why we have named the property Highwoods Gardens. With a concern for indoor entertainment replacing outdoor activity and the health issues our society has experienced as a result, Jim started a movement in the landscape industry in 2010 called COME ALIVE OUTSIDE. Together we work with professional landscape firms, students and communities to share the importance of getting kids and adults back outside. You can learn more about our work and this passion to Come Alive Outside. We hope everyone that comes to Highwoods Gardens enjoys the property, the views and the entire area half as much as we do. We consider this our second home and we are excited to share it with you!

Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
After renting vacation homes twice in the Asheville area we began looking for our own personal retreat to share with others. It is so close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, amazing waterfalls and every type of great outdoor activity you can imagine while being equally close to shopping, restaurants and the multi-cultural fun of Asheville! Or... it call feel far away from everything if that is what you want. We love the drive up the mountain roads past farmer's lush fields, cows, goats, horses, llamas etc. as this wonderful place helps us leave the complexities of life behind. The 2 houses are truly unique with beautiful detail which caught our admiration and interest from the start. The opportunity to 'get away from it all' while still being close to the convenience and appeal of Asheville makes this our perfect get-away.
