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!

Nature Wrapped Mid-Century | Sue and Sean were looking for a non-traditional home tucked into nature when they found this Mid-Century Modern home (circa 1973). The dramatic central fireplace and views of woods and mountains tugged at their heart. Architect Les McCormick helped them imagine and realize the modernized home it is today.
Everything was taken down to the studs. After replacing all the systems, they layered in mid-century and modern detailing throughout. The master suite was opened up with natural light coming in through a composition of square windows. A double-sided fireplace visible from both bedroom and bath was added as uniquely luxurious touch. Sean, a chef by trade, created a spacious kitchen with a giant island for parties, and a cozy, built-in banquet for more intimate gatherings. Expansive windows, large doors, and a wrap-around deck helped to increase the livable area of the home and connect with the wooded surroundings.
This distinctive renovation brings together nature and modernism with a dusting of sparkle.
Urban Mountain Home | Jonathan Bryant of Form Design Concept crafted this urban infill home to stand out in its West Asheville neighborhood. Refined and highly livable, this structure reflects modern Scandinavian mountain home designs. On the exterior, large spans of glass combine with rustic siding (reminiscent of Japanese “shou sugi ban”), integrating the home comfortably in its forested locale.
The interior living experience was carefully considered within the constraints of the tight urban lot. The lower entry is convenient to off-street parking and offers easy access for guests. The deck above floats in the trees while providing privacy from the street, and in the back, opens to a private covered patio enclosed by a fenced lawn for pets, play, and further escape from the public world. Window openings and light play to context from all directions to balance natural light with privacy.
Overall, the home provides a sleek luxury escape within a small urban footprint. The home was constructed by Steel Root Builders. Cheers! Troy and Kelly

Yeah! We closed 4 homes for both sellers and buyers last week. This sweet mountain escape will become a loved permanent nest for Jeff and Jeffrey, first time buyers, who will bring further healing energy to the mountains of WNC. We are excited to have them and their loving nature here.
What did they think of us? “For first time home buyers, this process could have been very intimidating, especially since we had a very specific type of house with mountain views in mind. But Troy & Kelly were wonderfully helpful & the process was streamlined in ways that I’m sure any client would appreciate. We’re so happy to have found the perfect home for us & that we chose Modern Asheville to assist us in all the steps from finding it to owning it! We highly recommend this professional team!”
