Join Us for an Inspired Groundbreaking

As a recent visitor to our website, you might know that French Broad Crossing was just recognized as a Southern Living Inspired Community.

What you may not know is that we are also honored to be the site for the magazine’s Inspired Home for 2015. This home will be designed and constructed by award-winning Southern Living custom builder of the year, Dillard-Jones Builders, and will showcase the best in creative Southern architecture, finish work, regional materials, decorating concepts, and landscaping. 

The home will be constructed on arguably the most beautiful homesite in the community, with panoramic views high above the French Broad River within walking distance of the community’s River Lodge. The view from here is just stunning, particularly now, with all the fall foliage painting the mountainsides. Look at the above photo, taken just last week from the Inspired Home site.

And you’re invited to the groundbreaking ceremony.

It happens next week, on Wednesday, November 12, at 11:30 am. I’ll be there, of course, as will a representative from Southern Living and the builder Tom Dillard, who will share renderings of the home and answer any questions you have. We plan a champagne toast and hors d’oeuvres for all guests.

We are also happy to provide a tour of the entire French Broad Crossing property if you haven’t been here before.

Not that I expect you to make a special trip to Asheville for this, but if you live nearby, or were planning to be in the area, please try to join us for this ceremony. And don’t be shy about introducing yourself!

For those who can’t make it, I’ll be posting photos of the event on the blog, as well as construction progress reports as this exciting home takes shape.
