Alex Carr Art Studio is a beautiful and inspiring space with gabled ceilings, hardwood floors? and beautiful north light. The numerous windows look out over gently rolling hills with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background. The studio is divided into three separate rooms - the artist’s personal space, a teaching studio and a business office. Well designed, well organized and inviting, just being in the studio inspires waves of creative inspiration.
The studio setting is also lovely, on several acres thoughtfully planted with all kinds of trees, shrubs, vines and flowers, as well as a vegetable garden. There’s almost always something in bloom around the property to admire and inspire. If you visit in early spring you may be lucky enough to see along the drive entry, the long line of weeping cherry trees in bloom with billowing pink, double-blooms on graceful branches floating on the breeze - a magical sight.
Behind the studio the expansive stone patio with boulder wall is the perfect place to sit and relax and listen to the many songbirds that call the property home while you fall under the peaceful spell of this charming, country hideaway.
