A Mid-Century Neighborhood Soars to Great Heights

IMG_0812Mid-Century homes have never looked so good set within the dramatic landscape of Asheville’s mountains overlooking its urban fabric.  Juxtaposing the natural with the cityscape is just the environment to inspire contemporary design.  Above downtown Asheville is Town Mountain Road. IMG_0821 It’s a dramatic road that begins on the edge of downtown and snakes its way through the neighboring mountains.  A some point in the 1960’s many builders and architects began constructing neighborhoods in those hills.  Here you will find a great collection of mid-century ranch and contemporary homes.  Many hug the hills while others cantilever into the sky.  Some have rustic styling while several maintain asian inspired designs.   So the next time you are in town be sure to spend a couple of hours touring the hills above Asheville along Town Mountain Road.  You’ll find a museum to modern mid-century residential design and a place I hope to call my home someday.
