G. W. McKibbin, architect and engineer; Fred Seely, designer;
Seely's Castle; Fred L. Seely House
Asheville, Buncombe County
Town Mountain Rd.
Although Fred Seely had the concept for his residence on Sunset Mountain, he employed G. W. McKibbin to translate it into reality, including both the original building as cited in his obituary and the 1923-1924 described in the two men's correspondence. The massive residence takes the form of a romantic castle executed in native stone.
