FOR SALE | Creston Cabin Lot

Thomas Lawton designed Mid-Century Styled Cabin Plans AvailableCreston Comp

Kelly and I just listed this private view lot in the eco minded community of Creston Mountain outside of the town of Black Mountain. The lot is 1.05 acres and is listed at $99,500.

The current owner of this easy build lot previously worked with architect Thomas Lawton to design a contemporary cabin as his writer’s retreat. The 2 bedroom, 1000 sqft cabin hugs the gentle slope while opening to the mountain view. The design of the cabin Lawton Compincorporates mid-century styling through horizontal lines along the earth topped with asymmetric gable roofs framing clerestory windows for ultimate mountain and sky views. Lot conservation and use of natural materials also influenced the design. Here is a link to the listing or email us at hello@modernasheville.com for more information.

Black Mountain | the Asheville House

IMG_0507While Kelly and I were working with a real estate investor client yesterday in Black Mountain I stopped to visit with Lincoln and Charlotte at their store, the Asheville House, yesterday to see what new furnishings they had in. They still maintain a nice blend of mid-century styled and industrial furnishings. Be sure to stop by when you are visiting Black Mountain to check out their inventory. IMG_0508

the Asheville House | Opening Night

IMG_5944The mid-century planets aligned this week conjuring up two new furniture stores. Last night Kelly, Chett and I were invited to the Grand Opening of the Asheville House in Black Mountain. With the growing interest in modern, retailers Charlotte and Lincoln Walters decided to launch their mid-century styled new home furnishings store in a beautifully restored carriage house in downtown. They describe the electric mix as representative of Asheville where rustic meets refined and organic meets industrial.

The three of us bumped into Robert from Splurge who provided a few of his visionary light fixtures for the retailer. None of us won the Mies van der Rohe chair they were raffling off with proceeds supporting the Black Mountain Center for the Arts. Still, it was a fun night and gave us the opportunity to catch up with some clients in our sister city to the East. Make sure you go soon. Cheers! Troy
