Announcing the New Southern Living Inspired Home

Marshall, NC – French Broad Crossing, a Southern Living Inspired Community overlooking the majestic French Broad River in Western North Carolina, will be the site of a new Southern Living Inspired Home, scheduled to be completed late fall 2016.

Just 30 minutes from downtown Asheville, French Broad Crossing is a pristine riverfront mountain community surrounded by preserved land held in conservation to ensure families an enduring living experience for generations. The Southern Living Inspired Home embodies the very essence of privileged mountain living, offering an immersive, amenity-rich lifestyle that features outdoor recreation, family adventure, and rustic elegance and comfort.

Featured in the Asheville Parade of Homes 

Already well under construction, the Southern Living Inspired Home will be showcased in the Asheville Parade of Homes this fall, October 8-9 and 15-16. “We look forward to giving people a glimpse of this incredible home and introducing them to the outdoor treasures that await them at this inviting mountain community,” says French Broad Crossing’s Christen Miller. “With its natural beauty, sweeping views in every direction, and its close proximity Asheville, French Broad Crossing is a haven for families seeking a more authentic mountain living experience on the banks of the French Broad River.”

A Home Worthy of Its Setting

The Southern Living Inspired Home represents the very pinnacle of gracious mountain living. The gorgeous, free-flowing layout invites the outside in, seamlessly blending nature’s handiwork with quality craftsmanship. The 2,500 square-foot (three-bedroom, three-bathroom) home boasts a refined mountain architectural feel, a spacious open floor plan, energy-efficient construction, panoramic views, and front and back porches that encourage quiet reflection or afternoon cocktails with friends.

“The house plan is two stories, very open, with vaulted ceilings, and plenty of windows to give you the sense that you are part of this magical mountain setting. The front porch is designed to accommodate landscaping and wraps around and connects on the left side going straight back to the house—a very nice feature we think. The back porch is accessible through sliding glass doors and is anchored by an inviting fireplace. The setting itself couldn’t be any better. The home is bordered by conservation land, which means it will be preserved for future generations.”
