About MEREDITH HUNT
Mick loves to write stories and explore the world. Edie loves to teach children and call folk dancing. They both love to hike and visit with their grandchildren. Their profile photo was taken at the North Carolina Arboretum, a place you must visit. It's just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near the French Broad River. Mick wrote and published an illustrated/photographic guide book to the Monarch butterfly migration over the southern Blue Ridge Parkway that you sometimes can find in Parkway bookstores. The property has a milkweed garden just below the blueberry patch. Milkweed is the only plant that larval Monarchs will eat. Edie is a musician who plays seasonally at the Biltmore Estate. Her instruments are the mountain dulcimer, guitar, and the vertical flute.
Why MEREDITH HUNT chose Buncombe County
It's a nice place to hang out and enjoy or use as a base for your explorations. The Shope Creek part of Pisgah National Forest is only about four miles away. There, at the end of Shope Creek Road, you will find hiking and mountain biking trails. The Brown House under High Swan is in the semi-rural Riceville Community, 15 minutes NE of downtown Asheville. Riceville is the least developed quadrant of the immediate Asheville area.
What makes this House unique
The house contains a lot of different kinds of wood in both the construction and trim Outside, the planted landscape contains a number of fascinating and beautiful plants, many of them native or native cultivars. And many of them nectar sources for various bees and butterflies. Mick and Edie designed and built the house (with help, of course) over a four year period. Before that, they did a lot of tree and shrub planting, and gardening on the land. The vegetable garden produces an abundance of food for them, and the blueberry patch stocks their freezer for winter eating. Mick and Edie would be happy to give you a tour, or just leave you alone, if that's what you prefer. They likely will be working on the land at some point during your stay.
