Newest and largest commissioned paintings are now installed! Tey grace the walls of the Devine’s master bedroom in their timber framed mountain home in Balsam Mountain Preserve, Jackson County, NC. Te seven foot waterfall is the largest oil painting I’ve ever done. A hand carved 16k gold leaf foat frame in a champagne tone, was custom made by Masterworks Frames in Utah.

Te client’s mountain view at sunset was captured in oils on a 54 inch Belgian linen canvas and was also complimented by a hand carved


matching champagne gold leaf frame. Te sof glow of the evening light refecting of the rising mist, created a calming serene mood for their bedroom. Te early autumn colors surrounding the falls and the warm gold and oranges of sunset played perfectly together and added just the right amount of color to pop the lively accent pillows and move the eye around the room.

Ah, Asheville. A city that has captivated and enchanted visitors for well over a century now. With its fresh mountain air, stunning natural beauty, and rich history, it’s no wonder that people have focked here for generations. But there’s one particular spot that has been the talk of the town for over a century - the Sky Club.

Tis legendary restaurant was perched high on Beaucatcher Mountain, providing awe-inspiring views of the city and Blue Ridge Mountains that surround it. People from all over the country came to experience the Sky Club’s world-renowned ambiance and cuisine. But to truly understand the Sky Club’s story, we must frst take a step back in time.

Back in the 1800s, transportation was difcult and tuberculosis was rampant. Western North Carolina was deemed a haven for those struggling with the disease, and Asheville was the chosen city due to its excellent air quality and medical treatment facilities. Te city slowly grew, attracting visitors and residents alike, who sought to enjoy the city’s natural beauty and burgeoning arts scene.

Sky Club

16 Fine Homes|Summer 2023

One such couple from Chicago, Oliver and Katherine Hamilton, came in the hope of relief for Oliver’s failing health. Tey bought an existing home on Beaucatcher Mountain and named it “Ardmion”. By 1910, Katherine’s leading role in Asheville’s music scene meant that they needed more space and they commissioned George Vanderbilt’s architect, Richard Sharpe Smith, to design a new “Ardmion” - Ashville’s frst concrete residence.

Twenty-fve years later Gus and Emma Adler, who had been running restaurants in East Asheville, bought the building and opened the “Old Heidelberg” - later to become famous as the Sky Club. Te Adlers were renowned for their gracious hospitality and exceptional cuisine, and the restaurant soon became a hot spot for locals and tourists alike.

Summer 2023 | Fine Homes 17

Over the years, the Sky Club played host to countless parties, galas and events, and even served as a flming location for Robert Mitchum’s “Tunder Road.” Te likes of Grace Kelly and Susan Hayward dined on the terrace, enjoying the panoramic views of the city and mountains beyond. While the Sky Club eventually closed its doors, its legacy lives on.

In the 1980s the original building was beautifully restored and converted into luxury condominiums. Apartment 2 was carved out of the original frst-foor dining room and dining terrace. It’s a ftting tribute to a legendary spot that added so much beauty and charm to Asheville’s history.

Asheville’s Sky Club may be no more, but its impact on the city remains. Residents and visitors can still take in

the same breathtaking views that drew people to the Sky Club all those years ago, and the city’s arts and culinary scenes are as vibrant as ever. For those who experienced the Sky Club’s magic, it will always hold a special place in their hearts - and in Asheville’s vibrant history.

Experience a part of Asheville’s history. Be transported back in time, at the former Sky Club. Te architectural design is from the early 1900s with a covered porch that remains the same. Once inside the condo, all 21st century conveniences are a part of a 3 bedroom and 2-bathroom home with over 1700 heated square feet. Te entrance, from the covered porch, is original, and this foor plan allows large gatherings from the main living area through French doors to the porch. A magnifcent wood freplace mantel compliments the hardwood foors that are throughout this charming home. Other benefts are two car garage, lowerlevel storage area, in ground pool, and outdoor gathering spaces throughout the common area. Tis home and gated community are a short distance from downtown Asheville, with Blue Ridge Mountain view and light from the city.
