We grew up in Ohio- Cleveland Cincy and Lima. We moved to WNC after graduating from Ohio State.. David worked at DuPont in Brevard until retiring in 2000 when the Brevard location closed. Now the property is the DuPont State Forest. Lonnie taught Middle School in Henderson County.. She's also a Carolina Dahlia Society member. When the dahlias and other garden flowers are blooming, you will often find a bouquet at your back door to enjoy. After visiting us many times, our parents also fell in love with Hendersonville. They chose this area for their retirement location. After living in the area for 50 years we are still in love with the mountains and our woods.Just a little slice of heaven on Earth. Come visit and we think you'll see why we fell in love with this property.
purchased this House in 1985
Why chose Horse Shoe
Rugby Community We knew we wanted to be in the woods on acreage yet close to town. We searched for a year and finally located this beautiful piece of property in 1982. The woods are filled with native plants-azaleas mountain laurel, ferns, trilliums, rhododendrons and towering hardwoods. Originally our entire community of 9 homes was a single large estate. It sadly burned down in the 30's giving rise to a cottage debpvelopent.There are 3 original cottage homes dotting our private road. The Cardinal Cottage is one of them.. They were built for the Charlestonians to escape the summertime heat. After WWII this idea was abandoned . The remaining acreage was sold to individuals to build their custom homes. There are only 9 homes on our private road. We own 2 of them. Our road is lined with stones reminiscent of the original estate and bygone era. We fell in love with the property and we're sure you will also. Relax, unwind and step back in time.
