Take a deeper look at the transformation of 49 Valle Vista in North Asheville — a 1978 split-entry ranch on a private wooded lot. Our owner, puts her heart in everything. As she says,“I love transformation and wanted to find a home that I could bring life back to it, with quality work, green/environmentally friendly products wherever possible and a desire to create an oasis. I viewed this project as a work of art, carefully choosing each component with purpose, flair and beauty. This is basically a new house. Even if this home isn’t the right one for you, I hope you will join with the love and energy put into this space!”

The kitchen and living area, formally divided, has now be united and topped with a vaulted ceiling for a light and open space. Careful in creating a warm contemporary space the finishes provide brightness, contrast and warmth.

Along with everything else the three bathrooms were all gutted and updated to reflect the rest of the interior.

SOLD | 21 Woodbury Rd.

We were so pleased to steward this great mid-century home forward to new owners. Our sellers did an amazing job of enhancing this home appropriately which is why there was so much interest and sold in a few days – along with our targeted marketing.  Cheers to you and thank you for allowing us to help!

Here is what they said about us: “We were owners of a special mid-century home and selected Kelly and Troy to sell it for us. Because of their market specialization in this area, we were not disappointed with the results. Their personalities, combined with their appreciation and understanding of the unique qualities and lifestyle  benefits of our property helped to get us over our asking price. We would recommend them highly to sell your home if you have a midcentury or modern property.”

Mountain Modern Architecture

7 Ways to Define the Trend by Jae Curtis | Once upon a time, building a home in the mountains meant something along the lines of bear rugs and deer heads. Sure, it was fine for a weekend getaway, but rustic homes didn’t always feel livable. The knickknacks and kitschy design can easily turn a mountain home into a caricature of itself. What seems like a fun space for a weekend can feel too heavy and cluttered for real-life living.

That’s why the mountain modern trend is so appealing. Architecture that pays homage to mountain life without the heavy hand makes these homes more livable. Without the clutter and kitsch, mountain living becomes a lot more comfortable. What’s more, this design style respects the land and makes your dreams of mountain life even more attainable. Check out some of the most common aspects of mountain modern design and decide if it’s right for you. Check out the full article on freshhome here. Cheers!
