Beverly-Hanks Listing Graces Cover of Classic Properties

image001We are pleased to announce that Ann Skoglund and Chris Battista’s listing, Saluda Cottages, was selected for the cover of the Classic Properties International magazine that will be distributed in Barnes and Nobles across the southeast. Beverly-Hanks & Associates partnership with Classic Properties International magazine provides international exposure via print and online media for its portfolio of the finest homes in Western North Carolina.

What makes this announcement even more exciting is that the listing is under contract with backups requested.  This listing’s history and the unique marketing initiatives employed allowed this wonderful property to stand out from its competitors.  As the luxury real estate market recovers, one thing is for certain. Those properties that are competitively priced and marketed aggressively, sell.

Marketing Initiative

Fifteen design teams participated in the 2010 Flat Rock Designer Showhouse, held at Saluda Cottages. The event was a benefit for Historic Flat Rock, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of buildings and scenic byways in Flat Rock, North Carolina.

About the Showhouse

Historic Flat Rock, Inc.‘s website explains that “the Showhouse was held on August 14 – 29. It was a huge success! Historic Saluda Cottages, listed on the National Register, provided a stunning site for the 2010 Flat Rock Designer Showhouse. This was Historic Flat Rock’s major fund raising event of the year. Thousands of people came to visit the house. Hundreds of volunteers were needed to make the event possible. Three floors of professionally decorated rooms were open for viewing.”unknown

The home was also featured in Carolina Home and Garden where you can view galleries for each of the rooms and their corresponding designers.
