SOLD | 110 6th St, Black Mountain

Yeah! We just closed on the second of two modern cottages designed by local Rusafova Markulis Architects. The homes brought a nice price per sqft in the Black Mountain market. It shows you what good value good design can bring to a home. The simple and efficient homes brought warmth and charm to modern design with their Danish modern styling. In case you missed them you can return here for a tour. Cheers! Kelly and Troy

SOLD | Among the Clouds

c5de34f5-dde6-4bff-9031-0f51a16be351.1On behalf of our friends and investor clients we were able to close on this turn-key, vacation rental, investment property called “Among the Clouds” just before the holiday weekend so they could get started operating their new business. Check it out here and share it with your friends. It is the quintessential mountain retreat with hot tub and fire pit for your true mountain escape. Cheers to them!

SOLD | Walkable Homes x 2

Sold x 2 CompKelly and I sold these two homes this month. Both have what today’s buyers are looking for — smaller square footage and location. The homes are both 3 bedrooms under 2000 sqft and walkable to more urbanized amenities such as stores and restaurants in North and Central Asheville. Priced below $300,000 they went for asking price or slightly above leaving us with happy sellers. Cheers!

A Modern Cottage Kitchen by Roost

IMG_7659Kelly and I are big fans of Roost made bathrooms and kitchens. We find each one, no matter the style, to have a refreshingly simple, clean and balanced aesthetic. David seems to know how to get the most out of minimal means. A modern mantra if there ever was one!

IMG_0269In this example, David was asked to redesign a kitchen for a fairly new {built in 2008} contemporary arts and crafts-ish, suburban home — the ones that seem to define new Asheville housing for the past decade. Loving the location, the clients called David to save them from the Home Depot styling they were immersed in.

David selected only three materials to create the palette for the kitchen: White Oak for the closet wall, cabinets, shelves and furniture, white subway tile for backsplash walls and white carerra marble for the counters and tabletop. Nothing new in materials, but it is that simple and sophisticated, Danish modern approach that makes it a home run. The kitchen perfectly blends retro cottage with urban industrial making it as historic and warm as it is clean and cool.Mardell Comp 1

The clients will now be able to walk into their kitchen via a small mudroom with places to lay down their bags, kick off their snow covered shoes and hang their parka. With the open shelving and flowing layout the Snowpocalpyse supplies can be stored in minutes. Gone is the dividing island from kitchen to living space replaced by a centralizing farmhouse table allowing more flow for living, working and gathering. Laundry and extra storage are tucked behind sliding barn doors to be opened or closed as needed.IMG_0266

Last, the ingenious and not readily apparent note about this kitchen is that David and his shop designed and built the kitchen elements so they could be flat packed and shipped. While it looks and sounds Ikea, in this case you receive quality, custom components that are solid wood through and through.IMG_0267

So, if you are looking to swap something sleepy and standard for something more life giving and “locally made” you may want to give Roost a call. I know we would. Cheers! Troy
