Divine Modern Makeover | Alan and Mark have a gift for bringing buildings to life. After painstakingly renovating a 4,600 square foot Mid-Century masterpiece in North Asheville, they immediately purchased this small 1970’s Baptist church in a divers West Asheville neighborhood — and started again. Working with F.R.Koon Custom Homes and Brickstack Architects, they stripped down the interior and recreated it with simplicity, versatility and a clean modern style.
The main sanctuary was cleared up to the newly-exposed rafters and down to the original concrete sub-flooring. Then they installed a clean, European style kitchen and a show-stopper suspended fireplace. The master bedroom and bath were separated off by steel beams, which serve a dual purpose in supporting an additional sleeping loft if desired. Guests stay in elegance in their own suite with a stainless Japanese soaking tub and private entrance. The general contractor, architect, and owners are known for their focus on details — clearly visible in how seamlessly the exposed ceiling, heating ducts and supporting walls come together.
Sanctuary meets spa in this minimal space, which offers a tranquil, positively sacred experience. The home will be showcased on our June 1 Modern Home Tour — details provided here. The home is, also, available for purchase here.
