MA2MA | 2017 Modern Home Tour

Did you miss it? We had another great modern home tour this past weekend kicked off by a Pre-Tour Mixer on Friday night at Splurge Design with the Modern Atlanta crew. This was our third year for the tour which grows yearly. 

Saturday, we had five homes open. Kelly and I cruised to all five of the mindfully designed modernist homes throughout Asheville. We saw lots of smiles out there. Here are some of the photos. Feel free to send us some of yours to add to our collection.

FOR SALE | 51 Shelburne Woods Dr.

C:DropboxProjects-TempShelburne WoodsMarketing3DBackYard.pdA NEW LEVEL OF MODERN LIVING

“Earth Friendly” doesn’t have to be “Earthy.” Mindful modern design lives as lightly as any concerned steward of our planet plus a whole lot shinier. Clean design rooted in the form and function ideals of Breuer and Neutra avoids the gravity of excess. A home can be both incredibly cool and quietly step back creating a stage for carefree living. We like to say, “Less House ~ More Life!”C:DropboxProjects-TempShelburne WoodsMarketing3DStreet.pdf

This community of nine consciously designed homes, Shelburne Woods, is nestled in nature against the woods and greenway and between the lively urban corridor of West Asheville and the active outdoor corridor of the French Broad River. The homes are a collaborative effort by award winner’s Mountain Sun Builders and Rusafova-Markulis Architects. Together they will be carefully crafted to steward a new level of life sustaining modern homes for active earth beings of any age.C:DropboxProjects-TempShelburne WoodsMarketingElevations2.p
