Sharing the Natural Gifts of the NC Mountains
Bill Ennen grew up with an appreciation for nature’s gifts of mountains and open spaces. Three years ago, he began looking for a special property in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to experience that appreciation more fully.
His search for a sublime mountain property to enjoy and steward with family and friends led him to the area near Burnsville, North Carolina. What began as a desire for a secluded two-acre home site became an opportunity for others to share in the mountain community of The Cove at Celo Mountain.
Ennen bought the 75-acre property that is now The Cove at Celo Mountain with his investment partners Diane and Ron Liemandt-Reimann together creating the Mountain Lifestyle Development Group. The group saw the neighboring Pisgah National Forest’s protected half-million acres as an extra incentive to purchase and preserve the beautiful site and develop it into an eco-friendly mountain community created in and around its natural setting.

The youngest of nine children, Bill Ennen moved to Florida from Minnesota with a half-empty U-Haul truck in the early 1980s and started working as a laborer. He quickly rose through the ranks of various homebuilding companies, learning every aspect of quality home construction. In 1993, Bill started Florida Lifestyle Homes of Fort Myers, an award-winning firm that specializes in building luxury custom homes.
