This quote captures the spirit of this custom crafted, modern home constructed with heirloom quality craftsmanship. With the richness and lightness of a modern, Japanese cottage — the Yin of cool, clean space harmonizes with the Yang of warm, rich hand finished materials in this artistic home affectionately named — the RedbudMain Front

3 Bedrooms  |  3.5 Baths  |  3423 sqft  |  MLS#324309542 Merrills Cove Rd Asheville-small-016-24-42 Merrills Cove16-666x445-72dpi

The floor of the light filled living space is polished concrete and sets the stage for gallery style living while absorbing the sun to keep the cool space warm. Rich hand crafted details of ash and oak are used sparingly and mindfully with plenty of white space to keep your eye uncluttered from excess. The main level provides all you need for living including the kitchen, living, dining, laundry and the master bedroom en-suite. The upper level has two bedrooms suites for your family or friends with a flexible loft for extra living, office or a studio to meet all your creative needs.Level Comp

The kitchen, the heart of any home, has been specially designed to do more with less. The efficient work space is flanked on either side with spacious and tactile surfaces atop rich wood cabinetry. Everything you need is at your fingertips with an ample pantry nearby to store all the extras. It comes fully furnished with quality Bosch appliances. Located adjacent are the side entry mudroom and laundry room for fully servicing the home. Kitchen Comp

The natural beauty of the Redbud veils the sophisticated mechanics that render it near Net Zero in efficiency. It effectively uses both passive and active solar for energy and heating. Further heating and cooling are supported by a geothermal heat pump and a wood stove for enhancing that Danish modern style coziness. Electric bills are close to nothing for this 3330 sqft home. There is nothing more to do, but to live lightly in this earth grounded home. Sign

The heirloom quality built Redbud is the second of three homes creating the dawning green, net zero community of Green Acres in South Asheville. Green Acres rests convenient to all the amenities of South Asheville while remaining a rustic getaway for private sustainable living or urban style homesteading. The 2.62 acres that accompany the home have the starts of a richly composted, organic veggie garden and berries. The neighbors further support the community with fruit trees and other shared ways to live off the land. back

Revisiting the A-Frame

f9306e240e92293bda91417585c8c21bThe A-frame house is, indeed, an architectural house style. The style features steep angled sides as the roofline that usually begin at or near the foundation line and meet at the top in the shape of the letter A. The triangle shape of this housing style has been present throughout history, but was more recently popular from the 1950’s to 1970’s.

46757be691ff4a969e85e24b0479e103Structurally speaking an A-frame is a basic structure designed to bear a load in a lightweight, economical manner. As an example, consider a saw horse which is designed to support a load bigger than itself while still be portable.

The post World War II popularity of the A-frame has been attributed to a combination of factors including American’s extra disposable income, the in-expensiveness of building an A-frame structure, and a new interest in acquiring a second home for vacationing. Given’s today’s renewed interest in mid-century, inspired design and tiny homes it seems a style worth revisiting. At Modern Asheville, we have been collecting images of past and present interpretations on one of our many pinterest boards here. Also, enjoy this collection published from from Dwell here. Enjoy!Screen Shot 2015-10-17 at 8.51.52 AM

Congrats to the Atomic Duo

We wanted to congratulate Megan and Todd of Atomic Furnishings and Design on their new home. As their energetic, mid-century Aunt and Uncle, Kelly and I couldn’t be more pleased for them. Below are some words from Megan. Cheers to you both!atomic-comp

“In case people have been wondering why we have been so busy lately and hard to track down it’s because we’ve been in the process of purchasing our first home. We decided to work with Kelly Erin-Spinney at Modern Asheville, because who better to know our taste and aesthetic than a mid-century and modern real estate company (not to mention she is a very good friend of ours). We were so impressed with her professionalism and knowledge of the home buying process. She would literally drop everything when we would ask to view a home. We are just so thankful to have had them involved in our first time home buying process and highly recommend them to anyone in the Asheville area! We just closed on our home this morning and we are ecstatic! It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to this point and we are so glad we pushed through. Our modern home is located in Burnsville NC just down the street from our good friends Leigh and Kristian. More photos and lots of blogging coming soon.” Megan
