Please note that public tours of the 2020 Southern Living Idea House have concluded. 

The 2020 Southern Living Idea House, which was built in The Ramble Biltmore Forest by Buchanan Construction, is now open for tours. This dreamy timeless farmhouse is featured in the October issue of Southern Living magazine. Southern Living selects one site and builder in the Southeast each year to build a model home that showcases unique architecture and interior design. The design team for the project includes Architect Beau Clowney and Interior Designer Lauren Liess. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. You can now visit the home in person and be inspired.


Please note that tickets must be purchased in advance and guests visiting the Idea House will check-in first at the following address, in Biltmore Park Town Square: 53 East Schenck Crest, Asheville, NC 28803. Tours are available Thursday – Sunday, except major holidays.
