While originally one of Western North Carolina’s best-kept secrets, the word is now out that a luxurious, full-service residential condominium is coming to Downtown Hendersonville. Branded under the Fairmont luxury brand (as in Fairmont Hotels and Resorts) the development will feature over 130 upscale apartments spanning 3.5 mountain-view acres.
The Shipman family, longtime owners of The Cedars is now part of the Fairmont Heritage Place The Cedars, which is being developed by Covin Development. The building will open in early 2025.
“We are welcoming buyers of all ages who want a luxury living environment without all the maintenance that comes along with it,” says Amy Shipman, Senior Sales Executive for Fairmont Heritage Place The Cedars. “My family has owned the property for decades and we’re so excited to offer people a place in Hendersonville to call home that fits their lifestyle and meets their dreams.”
Fairmont is a globally recognized golf brand, with many of its hotels paired with high-ranked golf courses around the world. Shipman said it was vital to team up with a golf partner that would help attract new residents from throughout the U.S. It was immediately obvious to Shipman that Champion Hills and our Tom Fazio-designed masterpiece is a natural partner for this new residential project.
Qualified residents will have access to the club’s 12-month Annual Explorer Membership, a full “trial” golf membership that affords members a full year of unrestricted access to our Fazio course (just ranked among the best private courses in the state by Golfweek), tennis courts, pool, casual and upscale dining, fitness and wellness facilities, social activities and more.
Fairmont Heritage Place The Cedars is located in the heart of downtown Hendersonville, just off Main Street. This three-building resort residence will embrace a fully renovated Cedars plus add two new residential towers.
The fascinating history of The Cedars can be found on the project’s website, which also features an informative video. The site introduces visitors to the new residences, which range from studios to 3 bedrooms spanning 500 to 1,800 square feet. There are even 3,635-square-foot penthouses available for those who crave more space.
“It’s really going to be a world-class luxury experience right here in quaint Hendersonville,” Shipman says. “And we just love that our residents will have access to Champion Hills. My sister and I went to high school with all of Tom and Sue [Fazio’s] kids and it means so much to us that our qualified residents will have access to the Annual Explorer Membership.”
In fact, Fazio was adamant that the new property needed an elite, enticing golf connection for select future residents who met the criteria, and that (you guessed it) Champion Hills was the perfect solution. Qualifying residents will have the opportunity to become Full Equity Members when their Annual Explorer Memberships are up.
As for the Fairmont Heritage Place The Cedars, its residents will have a 2,980-square-foot fitness center, spa, pool bar, family lounge and resort pool deck with a spacious lawn. For those still plugged into the business world, there will be ample conference/event center space available.
