Modern Atlanta reveals Asheville’s Modern

CalendarKelly and I have been working for years to champion a modern and mid-century home tour here in Asheville. With our help Modern Atlanta has finally brought their expertise in leading a Modern Home tour this weekend for us all to enjoy. Here’s the skinny on what the organization is doing.

First, go HERE to purchase a ticket for the Asheville home tour. Once you purchase a ticket you will get a link to the map, addresses to the homes and times they are open. Below is some info on each of the homes being showcased this weekend by Modern Atlanta and the associated designers. Please note that homes are open either Saturday or Sunday, but not both. Enjoy!

thumb-1The Kenilworth home is being hosted by Samsel Architects who designed a major renovation to this original Tony Lord designed home constructed in the 1950’s. The pedigree home was carefully sited on the nine acres of land and was designed with windows to showcase the view of Lake Kenilworth. The majority of the exterior and interior materials were preserved while the plan was updated with an enhanced kitchen and master suite. This home will be open on Sunday, May 31st from 10am to 4pm.

evelyn-exteriorEvelyn Place was originally a 1960’s ranch home and recently redesigned by Scott Huebner of Brickstack Architects. Over 2500 sqft of additional living space was added, including a two-car garage, screened porch, bluestone terrace and a master suite. This home will be open on Saturday, May 30th from 10am to 4pm.

thumb-2The new Zum House was built this past summer is a green, pre-fabricated, flat-packed dwelling with a high overall R value. The bold, eye-catching facade was assembled on one of the few remaining infill lots in Asheville. The exterior features gray fiber cement board siding with aluminum extruded profiles and flashing. The interior timbers are engineered wood stock with Port Orford cedar timbers on the outside. This home will be open on Saturday, May 30th from 10am to 4pm.

Fontana-Bridge-EntryExterior-e1410183240107The Fontana Bridge Lake House designed by Samsel Architects is a private lake home located in Swain County and was completed in the summer of 2014. The LEED Gold home is designed to integrate harmoniously with the surrounding Appalachian mountain setting. The understated exterior and the thoughtfully chosen palette blend into the topography of the wooded hillside. This home will be open on Saturday, May 30th from 10am to 4pm.

We hope everyone comes out and shows your support to what Modern Atlanta is doing for us here is Asheville. Kelly and I are so grateful to Elayne and their team. Cheers!
