The Well-Traveled Home on the 2023 Home Tour

Many recent garden tour guests were eager for a peek inside this Biltmore-area home. Set amid lush tropical and sub-tropical gardens (the property is an actual working farm), the inviting Spanish Colonial residence recently underwent an extensive renovation, which involved opening up spaces and updating throughout. The interior palette of greens, blues and terra cottas bring the verdant vibe inside, while taller ceilings, glass transoms and stained glass give the interiors a “big sky” feeling. Modern materials and rustic finishes serve as a backdrop to the homeowners’ found objects and fine art collected from their travels around the world.
