Being avid James Bond fans, our clients, wanted to find their own countryside retreat when moving to the Asheville area. While far from being an English Tudor, the couple did find a contemporary Deltec home nestled into the edge of the woods in pastoral Leicester, thusly crowned Skyfall Lodge._X2A7508

Unlike an English Tudor home, the round shape with big and bright windows offered them views of both the trees and the mountains. They feel gently embraced by nature. 29 White Eagle Way Leicester-small-005-Living Room-666x443-72dpi

Here is how Deltec of Asheville describes their homes, “In a time where more and more technology separates us from our roots, many choose to retreat to nature and to the peace that can be found there. We are even incorporating this desire into our homes and homebuilding. What better way to escape from the rigors of our hectic lives than to retreat to a space designed with nature in mind?Int Comp

Utilizing many eco-friendly construction practices, Deltec allows homeowners to not only feel a kinship with the earth, but to tread lightly upon it as well. Circular homes bring another dimension into our lives, one that if often forgotten, the dimension of a beautiful space linking us with our forbearers’ send of free-living and connectedness to the earth.”

I asked our clients what they loved about living here and most of their reflections revolved around nature and their relationship to it. He loves that the fireflies start their dance for his birthday in early June. July he looks forward to the Katydids singing at night. Far from machine gun fire, they enjoy sitting on the deck and hearing nothing but the wind in the trees or the laughter of friends when he is making his masterful barbecue.29 White Eagle Way Leicester-small-029-Deck-666x443-72dpi

While being a private retreat they both enjoy entertaining. The large deck and open kitchen allows them generous and easy options for friendly gatherings. And given that they are only 11 miles to downtown it is an easy commute for their guests to come and play. 29 White Eagle Way Leicester-small-010-Dining Room-666x443-72dpi

Some people may still ask “Why Deltec?” Since 1968, Deltec Homes has literally reshaped living. They have taken one of the most unique yet time-proven design concepts in history—the circular home—and added their own touch to create custom-designed, high performance homes that are adaptable, incredibly strong and affordable.

Every Deltec Home is built by using a combination of high-tech manufacturing techniques and old-fashioned craftsmanship. They build each home one at a time, to create spacious living with open floor plans that don’t box you in, and panoramic views that bring the outdoors in.29 White Eagle Way Leicester-small-021-Master Bedroom-666x443-72dpi

While Deltec homes aren’t completely hurricane proof, their shape, their construction and engineering can almost guarantee you’ll survive a rare violent outburst by mother nature or a helicopter attack from a lifelong nemesis unlike the fate of the original Skyfall Lodge. In that regards our clients have one better trick up their sleeve than 007.

Parker Pfister

Kelly and I met photographer Parker Pfister at a Modern Mixer we hosted at one of our mid-century, real estate listings a couple of years back and became a big fan of his personally and professionally. Naturally, I could only think of him when it came time for Kelly and I to do some marketing photos for our new team. We met Parker at the RanParker Pfisterkin Lofts located between our office and his studio for a misty morning of photo play. The experienced reinforced how easy he is to work with and what can happen when you leave an artist to lead the way. Kelly caught this panoramic shot of Parker in action. We are looking forward to working with him on some special projects in the near future. If interested in knowing more about Parker and his work please visit his website or make an appointment to visit his studio in downtown.
