Retro-Fit-Design-6-1Check out the kudos given to the team of Bellwether Design-Build, Retro+Fit Design and Allard & Roberts Interior Design for their combined effort on the Ciel community’s latest spec house soaring above Asheville.

Ciel | Crafted Modern Home

Comp o1Last Friday, Kelly and I were fortunate enough to get a private tour of Ciel’s latest spec home under construction. The 4800 sqft home is the latest in quality, luxury homes that make up the distinctive legacy being developed by David Zimmerman. David has selected the designers, builders and artisans for these mindfully crafted homes nestled above Asheville. The top floor of this home will be a soaring master suite with a treehouse spa bath and a ready to go elevator shaft if needed. Once completed I’m imagining it should prove a worthy and sexy hideaway for the next James Bond film. comp

The build is being led by Brad Rice of Bellwether. The home was originally designed by Retro-Fit Design and interiors are to be specified by Allard & Roberts. Above you can see the Cypress siding going up on the exterior. The wood is treated with a long-lasting green finish to both preserve it and allow it to turn a rich, warm gray blending with the surrounding trees. The team hopes to complete the home by June of this year. Kelly and I look forward to another tour in a few months.
