Whatever you do, don’t call the collection of six homes along the mile-long driveway on Goshentown Road in Hendersonville a commune. It’s more accurate to say it’s a friends’ compound. Or call it a private, gated subdivision.
Six couples, some of them friends since childhood, moved into their homes beginning last October. More than a year earlier, they purchased 32 acres of farmland and subdivided it into lots of 5 or 6 acres where each couple built their own, privately owned house.
“We’re a group of people who’ve always dreamed of the same thing, the idea of building a community on land where you have your own space off the beaten path,” said Kindle Hughes.
“Each home is their own, and we have built-in friends,” she said.
