Asheville, North Carolina, United States

The ‘Inanda’ house, a late 19th century farmhouse acquired by the Biltmore Estate when the Vanderbilts purchased the property. The house pre-dates the estate and is the only surviving example of the farms that once occupied the area before the Vanderbilts. The house is a small one-story victorian cottage with an irregular plan. Its exterior is composed of a rough stone foundation, wood clapboard siding, and fish scale wood shingles. The interior details include moulded window surrounds, plaster walls, and wood plank floors. The house was occupied until the mid 20th century by dairy farm workers and after years of neglect is in bad shape today. It has been stabilized to prevent further deterioration but no plans have been made for it’s future yet.
