Raoulwood, one of Asheville's most important historic homes, was designed for Thomas Wadley Raoul by architect Charles N. Parker, who designed the Grove Arcade. Mr. Raoul was one of the four original developers of Biltmore Forest.
Presiding on the highest hill in its section of Biltmore Forest, on land once owned by George and Edith Vanderbilt, Raoulwood is one of the Forest's six original houses. It also features the longest golf-course frontage, with a direct view of the Biltmore Forest Country Club, and is shaded by magnificent 250 year old white oaks in excellent condition. The 3.5 acre grounds were influenced in their landscaping by Chauncey Beadle and Frederick Law Olmsted.
On the National Register of Historic Places. Lovingly preserved and owned by only two families since it was built. It offers formal dining and an Arts & Craft living room, a stone end-porch, a sunny kitchen main floor laundry and home office. It also features a delightful guest cottage and a three-car carport.
