Notes:
The Judge Junius G. Adams house is a Tudor Revival-style residence built in 1921 in the Asheville development, Biltmore Forest. The landscape retains many of its historic features. A curvilinear driveway leads from Stuyvesant Drive to the rear of the house and terminates in a circle. Several mature oak trees stand in the front yeard. A dense band of trees wraps along the east side of the property, providing a visual buffer from passing traffic ; and the rear of the property is also heavily forested. Areas around the main house--the gardener's residence and the pool house--are landscaped with a variety of rhododendrons, mountain laurels, azaleas, forsythias, and boxwoods. Along the west side of the pool house is a terrace with flowerbeds.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Judge Junius Adams (former owner, 1921-1933); Burnham S. Colburn (former owner, 1933-1938); Daniel and Eleanor McCarthy (former owners, 1933-1979); Peter Hall (former owner, 1980-1998); Charles N. Parker (architect, 1921); and Anthony Loid (architect of renovations, 1940).
