Make Your Modern | Home Story 07

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.

Make Your Modern | Home Story 06

Mix-Century | Situated on a mountain side with views overlooking downtown Asheville, the Mayflower residence, originally built in the 1970’s was a complete renovation with only the foundation and asymmetrical roofline kept intact. Cantilevered steel beams support the deck’s roof and allow for an unobstructed view of the city and the beautiful 100-year old oak tree adjacent to the home.

Wood is carried further into the home through sunny oaks and rich walnuts. Natural texture play against soft white walls and steel creating a rich neutral gallery for showcasing colorful artwork throughout.

Entry to the home is on the lower level through a square pivot door, then an elegant staircase leads up to the main living areas. A dumb-waiter was added to transport essentials from car to kitchen and back.

Modern clean lines blend with natural textures to create a home that is warm and welcoming for everyone. {Design by Carlton Edwards Architecture and photos by David Dietrich}

Make Your Modern | Home Story 05

Nature Wrapped Mid-Century | Sue and Sean were looking for a non-traditional home tucked into nature when they found this Mid-Century Modern home (circa 1973). The dramatic central fireplace and views of woods and mountains tugged at their heart. Architect Les McCormick helped them imagine and realize the modernized home it is today.

Everything was taken down to the studs. After replacing all the systems, they layered in mid-century and modern detailing throughout. The master suite was opened up with natural light coming in through a composition of square windows. A double-sided fireplace visible from both bedroom and bath was added as uniquely luxurious touch. Sean, a chef by trade, created a spacious kitchen with a giant island for parties, and a cozy, built-in banquet for more intimate gatherings. Expansive windows, large doors, and a wrap-around deck helped to increase the livable area of the home and connect with the wooded surroundings.

This distinctive renovation brings together nature and modernism with a dusting of sparkle.
