About John and Kathy
We are married and in our youthful 60's :-) We love to explore Western North Carolina, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, hike the trails, try new restaurants or return to our favorites ... we love this place! John grew up in Florida, is a Vietnam war veteran, has traveled extensively, and is a retired federal officer. Kathy grew up in Colorado and is a licensed minister, and retired in 2020 as director of a thriving Community Services ministry, and the church administrator at Foster SDA Church in Asheville. Both Serenity House and Paradise Cottage are on the same property. We live next door in the basement apartment of Paradise Cottage (the upstairs is a 2 bedroom 1 bath vacation rental VRBO listing # 674105), and frequently access storage in the walk-out basement of Serenity House. You will enjoy your privacy in Serenity House. However, should you need us, we are readily available by phone or text.
John and Kathy purchased this House in 2009
Why John and Kathy chose Leicester
Asheville is one of the prettiest, most unique and interesting cities in America and the mountains around here are absolutely gorgeous. It would be difficult to find an all around better place to live or visit. When we found this property we were impressed by how remote and peaceful and epic the setting is for only being a 15-20 minute drive to Asheville. The only part about this property is we don't like to leave because it's just so nice up here!
What makes this House unique
It really is a million dollar view. Sometimes when we are outside and the sun is setting I wonder how we got to be so lucky to live in such a place. It reminds us of some iconic Japanese mountain retreat or a vale in the Swiss Alps. We hope you will enjoy it too!
