NC Mountain Community Commissions Artists to Define The Cove at Celo Mountain

NEW BERN - Bill Ennen, award-winning builder and NC mountain community developer of The Cove at Celo Mountain, recognizes that one of the great resources in Western North Carolina is artistic talent. Now on display at this private NC mountain community are two masterpieces; the entry gate – a Lucius Annaeus Seneca design of layered mountains made from burnished copper, black iron and stainless steel and a commissioned, and a one-of-a-kind painted Quilt Block, part of Quilt Trails of Western North Carolina on display in Greeter’s Park at The Cove at Celo Mountain.

It seemed only natural to Bill to surround his NC mountain property with visually beautiful reminders of the region. After all, this mountain home builder had already decorated the outdoors of this private mountain community - inviting residents outside to bond with nature and touch their five senses. The Cove at Celo Mountain has four outdoor living rooms for residents to enjoy and take in the areas natural beauty.

For those seeking a quiet, mountain retreat, this NC mountain property will soon feature two of the three cabins planned, as part of The Cabins at Celo Collection. These mountain homes for sale will be ready for purchase and move-in by later summer. If living outdoors is as important to you as your indoors, The Cove at Celo Mountain is worth taking a look. Celo is a private gated community near Asheville, N.C. offering mountain properties and Black Mountain homes for sale with dramatic mountain views.

NC Mountain Homes Developer Donates to Quilt Trails of WNC

NEW BERN — Barbara Webster, executive director of Quilt Trails of Western North Carolina, accepted a first-place award in the category “promotions” for the Burnsville Quilt Trail at the recent Small Town Main Street 2010 Awards.

N.C. Secretary of Commerce J. Keith Crisco presented the award along with Deputy Secretary Dale Carol, Assistant Secretary Joseph Crocker and Director Gloria Nance-Sims.

The Quilt Trail utilized a $5,000 grant from HandMade in America to the Toe River Arts Council. Each painted quilt block on the trail tells the story of the family, the land or the building where it resides. On the first Quilt Block Tour in 2009, a total of 15 people spent an estimated $3,000 at downtown businesses.

N.C. Community Developer and Black Mountain home builder Mountain Lifestyle Communities donated $50,000 to Quilt Trails to pay the salary of the executive director for two years, as the corporate underwriter for the project.

Mountain Lifestyle Communities developed The Cove at Celo Mountain, one of the premiere gated mountain communities in Asheville NC offering mountain homes for sale and mountain properties with breathtaking views of Black Mountain.
