Place:
New Gunston Hall (Asheville, North Carolina)
United States of America -- North Carolina -- Buncombe County -- Asheville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a site plan, and excerpts from the property's National Register of Historic Places nomination form.
General:
Situated well back from the road and not visible from the street, this is an imposing house built on the plans of the original Gunston Hall in Virginia. The unusual shape of the lot contributes to the privacy of the property. This is one of the original houses in the Biltmore Forest area (see National Register of Historic Places nomination form in folder). The gardens and the house were once extensive and although they remain charming it is impossible to keep them in the manner once intended. The boxwood garden is more of a secret garden and not visible from the lawn or the house. The current gardens were established in 1944.
Persons associated with the property include: Dr. and Mrs. William Beverly Mason (former owners, 1923-1944); John Bartlett and Lola Anderson Dennis (former owners and landscape designer, 1944-1969); Dr. C. Ray Franklin and Ruth Holman Franklin (former owners, 1970-1987); and Chauncey D. Beadle (landscape architect, 1920-ca. 1930).
