Flea For Y’all | This Sunday

It’s time, again, for all things, vintage, hand-made and cool. This Sunday is the August Flea for Ya’ll. As usual it will be at the Asheville Outlet Mall‘s outdoor venue for the day just next to Field and Stream. That means you can spend a day in bargain heaven bringing home both the old and new. Go HERE for the details. Stop by and see the Modern Asheville Real Estate team — the proud sponsors of this event. Cheers! Kelly and Troy

Happy Eclipse Day

A group of fifth-grade students in Maywood, Illinois, view the July 20, 1963, eclipse with “sunscopes.” By piercing a three-millimeter hole in cardboard boxes to create crude pinhole cameras, the students could watch an inverted image of the eclipse cross the inside of the box without harming their eyes.

We hope you have a  safe and fun shared eclipse day today. Cheers!

Kelly and I are excited to bring to the market this dramatic, mid-century home with cool architectural lines.

Traditional Meets Modern

We love the stripped down clean lines of this home from one of our news feeds. Check out the living space and fireplace. In form, it reminds us of our new modern cottages we have listed in Black Mountain that are finishing soon. Look for updated photos this month. Cheers!
