Von Ruck | Mini Mid-Century Makeover

IMG_6176Kelly and I were touring one of our preferred mid-century neighborhoods in Asheville and saw one of my favorite little mid-century homes under renovation. Curious — we decided to find out more. We met David who purchased the home and is giving the mini mid-century a major makeover. As artists, both him and his partner Deb, will live and work there. I’ll report more on it when we come back for a tour as it nears completion, but they both promise to come tonight to the Cotton Mill Soiree to meet up with other modern enthusiasts. Cheers to them!

Ranch House Resurgence

I have been writing about ranch homes for over six years now given the benefits of these homes here in Asheville and their locations. They are a great resource for making your modern lifestyle for multiple reasons. Here is an article I came across this morning while researching. And if you want to know more about our local ranch homes type in “ranch” in the search line to the right. Or give Kelly and myself a call for further direction.

“Was the peak of American modernism the ranch-style house? Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the earliest adopters of the low-slung massing and clean, horizontal lines, and though seemingly traditional, the typology embodied much of the ethos of modernism. The ranch was mass-produced, housed huge amounts of middle-class workers, and offered clean, efficient spaces for living. Their horizontal nature made them not only accessible, but helped to blur the lines between interior and exterior both visually and spatially.” To read further click here.

Town Mountain | Vintage Rustic Modern Home

rockhold compI previewed this unique and cool home today. The home is just off of Town Mountain Road and was built in 1947. The main space you see below was originally an outdoor courtyard, but was enclosed with a raised roof to provide a grand living space flooded with natural light. The roof deck offers panoramic views on both sides of Town Mountain. I loved this one! Troy
