A regular feature of The Week news magazine, “Best properties on the market,” spotlights a Hendersonville home as the “Steal of the week.”
In the magazine's July 6 issue, the real estate feature focuses on “Homes for gardeners.” A 2,396-square-foot home on three private acres on Davis Mountain is among the six properties featured. Easy to understand why it’s the steal of the week. Listed at $350,000, it’s the only home that sells for less than $2 million. The other best homes for gardeners were in Mount Vernon, Wash. ($2.28 million); Sarasota, Fla. ($5.5 million); Bedford Hills, N.Y. ($2.88 million); Lyme, Conn. ($3.8 million); and Bend, Ore. ($3.45 million).


GardenHouseDavis Mountain home features hardwood floors and a wood stove.Listing agent Kelly Hetherington, of Beverly-Hanks & Associates, was delighted to learn that the home had been chosen for the feature.
“It’s just a beautiful setting,” she says. “She does have some nice garden area.” The home also has an outdoor pool and decks. Built in 2001 of railroad ties and Carolina pine, the three-level home has a woodstove, a master bedroom with a clawfoot tub, front and back porches and a whole-house generator. Gardens? Of course. It has flower gardens, a large vegetable garden and fruit trees.
The listing has generated “a lot of inquiries," she says. "We were in the counteroffer stage at one point but the buyer decided to go elsewhere.”
A caller from Italy, who plans to visit Hendersonville, “wants to see it when he gets here.”
The address is 45 Mack Hill Drive. Reach Hetherington at 850-509-0488.
