Kelly and I took a quick tour of Roost’s latest new home in the final touches of completion near UNCA. The industrial styled infill home is 3 bedrooms with 2.5 baths on 3 levels. The architectural mass of the interior spaces are clad in an industrial metal siding. The mass framing the exterior spaces are clad in “corn crib” style natural wood siding.
The lower entry court provides rare level parking and a paved play area for an active family. The home offers the option of using the garage or car port for housing your transportation or outdoor toys. The utilitarian level offers easy access to drop off equipment and clothes directly into the laundry/mud room before heading upstairs to live or play with or without clothing.
The second level contains an open living and kitchen area and the master bedroom suite. Roost, also a cabinet-maker, is providing their usual quality built-ins for both the living spaces and master bedroom. What did we love here? The built-in dining island and the kitchen look out through a folding garage door style window that raises up into a protective awning to let the outside in and will keep your cocktails extra dry…just the way we like them.
The upper level has an open living and office area flanked by 2 bedrooms a shared bath and utility closet. The corner window with views to Mt. Pisgah and beyond lead to an outdoor terrace big enough to welcome visitors from neighboring planets. This gives the home great indoor/outdoor living on all three levels which is perfect for our environment here in Asheville.
The “Wigmore” home is a Roost signature plan that designer/builder David Way has developed over several iterations in both Montford and North Asheville. Currently, there is a more vintage styled version of this home on the market in Montford. Cheers!
