About Anne and Tom Sherry
We bought a foreclosed dilapidated farmhouse in 1998 with the dream of homesteading and running a market farm. The chicken coop went up before our toilets flushed down. After a year of building gardens, we started selling produce at tailgate markets and to local restaurants. While sustainable living was Tom passion, Anne love of art needed a space to thrive. We shifted focus to rebuilding our 115 year-old farmhouse. After two years of design and five years of construction we have the home of our dreams. Then our wonderful son August, (now 4) came into our world running a market garden had to take a back seat. All of this could not be accomplished by simply growing great produce. We both are psychotherapists focusing on adolescents, families, and adults. In 2014 our 16 year old foster son, (now adopted) joined our family. We worked feverously to maintain the homestead lifestyle, but with a 13 year old and a 1.5-year-old, things got a bit crazy. So, we moved into Asheville and opened our heart and home to others, (for the time being.)

What makes this House unique
Our house is like no other home. It is half farmhouse modern half art gallery with view everywhere. It you like relaxing beauty is every where you look, this is the place. The creek is a great place to cool of during the day and the fire pit is great for catching up at night.

Whistlepig Farm is at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Blue Ridge Parkway is just 10 minutes up the mountain. There are multiple hikes and waterfalls off the Parkway and the view are remarkable. Bent Creek, the local mountain biking spot is about 10 minutes away. Asheville, of course, is beautiful and has one of the best art, music, restaurant, and beer scenes anywhere. A main attraction in the area is the Biltmore Estate which is a sight to behold. Simply, Asheville has something for everyone.
