Modern Farmhouse: the Neathermead Residence

Neathermead CompThere have been many examples of modern interpretations of the farmhouse here in Asheville. Carlton’s version, one of my favorites, just won a Residential Honor Award. Overall, the home is a well curated blend of traditional proportions and warm, homey materials mixed with clean lines and open living that offer the resident a modern lifestyle within a historic vernacular. Check out this brief video to see more details.

On a side note, a real estate colleague questioned my use of the term “vernacular.” Instead of replacing it I thought it was a good opportunity for further understanding. I found this great article on ArchDaily that can give further insight.

Enjoy!
