About Louise Childers
We live next door in another stone home that we purchased in 1997. My wife is from this area and I am a native of Atlanta. We relocated to the beautiful mountains of western NC in 1992.
We also own a lovely beach condo/townhome in Crescent Beach/St. Augustine Beach, FL. That property is also listed on VRBO-Listing # 366518.
Louise Childers purchased this house in 2005
Why Louise Childers chose Brevard
We purchased Cherryfield Manor as it is a very unique home, featuring native grey stone, all hardwood floors, real plaster walls and situated on well-wooded, mature forest property. We rent this home only for vacation rental guests.
What makes this house unique
The primary benefit to this lovely home, we believe, is its pristine setting amid large, mature trees, offering privacy and solitude. Yet, we are less than 2/10ths of a mile from US 64, only 5 miles from downtown Brevard and about 25 miles to the Asheville Regional Airport. It's a great location and if you have time, there are nearly 260 waterfalls in Transylvania County to view, the Pisgah National Forest, DuPont Forest and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville is an easy 45-minute drive.
