Four Popular Features of Cottage Style Homes near Asheville, NC

Why are cottage style homes so popular today? Is it their cozy, storybook appeal? Their smaller, adaptable design? Their open house floor plans that flow from room to room?

Whatever the reason, cottage style homes remain one of America’s favorite house floor plans, and River Stone Cottages near Hendersonville and Asheville, North Carolina, is no exception. From the picturesque windows to the steep rooflines, families can’t seem to get enough. Here are four standard features of our cottages that homeowners really appreciate:

1. Double-paned windows and an insulated front door: Before going green was the hip thing to do, it was the right thing to do. We have always built homes that were designed to save energy and keep your monthly utility bills low. These features have only grown in popularity in recent years.

New Home Building Now Underway at The Edinburgh

There’s no question that new home builders have taken a hit in recent years. But it’s not all doom and gloom out there. Our planned communities in East Tennessee are thriving, and we are proud to announce that new home building is already underway at The Edinburgh, a 160-acre master planned community in the Tri-Cities area.

If you don’t know anything about The Edinburgh yet, it’s time to learn a thing or two. That’s because The Edinburgh is unlike any master-planned community we’ve ever developed. What makes The Edinburgh so special is that it has an elementary school right in the heart of the neighborhood.

Imagine living in a place where your kids can walk or ride bikes to school without leaving the comfort of the community. (Sure, it’s a far cry from the days when you trudged seven miles to school through rain, sleet and snow, but at least your kids will have it better than you, right?)
