Modern Sneak Peek | Hudson St. Update

IMG_2076Paint is being applied, cabinets and ceramic tile are going in and lighting is being installed. Yes, the finishing touches have begun at Earthtone Builder’s Hudson St. project. The original spec home began in mid-April and now is on the road to completion for the Builder’s Tour this fall and for our happy buyer to move in. Builder Greg McGuffey has been mindfully managing the process along the way.Comp 01

We stopped by for a quick tour, along with, Princeton modern fans Shelly and Sean. Greg walked all of us through the net zero, single level, 3 bedroom home being added to the growing West Asheville landscape. The roof slope becomes both the base for the southern facing solar panels and the container for the open living space with the additional loft. Stayed tuned for final updates and information on the early fall builder’s tour. Cheers!IMG_2085

Today’s Modern | Maximized Living thru Minimal Means


We at Modern Asheville Real Estate were very pleased to see this home by our friends at Samsel Architects. The Asheville modern home is on trend to meet many of our real estate home buyers needs. The smaller efficient floor plan lives openly like a loft for those looking to downsize and live with less, along with, the low maintenance materials and natural setting that requires little care from the home owner. The home is as easy to live and relax in as it is to exit worry free when the travel bug bites unexpectedly. On top of that it maximizes energy efficiency and includes technology to make the home sustainable for years to come. All around the simple and sleek modern home has been intentionally designed to maximize quality of life while minimizing the burdens of home ownership. We love that combination. Discover more details on Samsel’s website here. Cheers to the team!CravenGap-Blog-KitchenHall
