WhiteGate Inn & Cottage, Asheville, North Carolina

“Tall 2 ½ story Shingle Style house on random-coursed stone basement, an awkward combination of highly informal massing /and plan /and formal details. Tall exterior chimneys are centered on minor gables on the principle north and west elevations. A minimal cornice returns minimally in the major gables. Some saw-tooth edging relieves the broader expanses of shingles. Large sunroom in lieu of porch. Shallow pedimented entry portico on Tuscan Columns, round arched doorway with fanlight. Some outline parqueting of floors, fine classical mantel composition (full entablature with triglyphs on Doric columns) in parlor, otherwise a rather plain interior. The house was used for many years as a “convalescent home” but was not altered significantly.” [Cabins & Castles, The History and Architecture of Buncombe County 1981] (Asheville City Planning Dept. has copies).
