SOLD | Burnsville Mountain Escape

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!”

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.
