Jones Gem has a new owner.

Stoneflower Cottage, a unique lake home in my hometown, designed by E. Fay Jones has finally sold. Though I realize the home was not built as a permanent family residence, I do hope some bachelor, or even a couple will live in this little gem year-round. She's had a rough life, as many family summer homes experience.

As property values have escalated on Eden Isle and many other lakefront areas, I am quite happy that Stoneflower is now protected by it's assignment to the National Register of Historic Places. It would only take one nuevo-riche asshole from Memphis to potentially come in and plow the old lady down, making way for his/her garish retirement compound.

Believe happens all the time.

Yes, Stoneflower sold and was completely renovated as the ol'gal was in need of some TLC. She looks wonderful and is available to rent for a night or weekend through Red Apple Inn

It is truly a magical place!
