RCJ Builders | Modern Maker of Homes

Metro McCormick Field HouseComp 01

Bobby Jacobelly, of RCJ Building, gave us a call this week to check out his recent residential construction project just around the corner from our office. Kelly, Matt and myself jumped in the car and ran up. Bobby’s building a 4 level, 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home nestled up to McCormick Field and overlooking downtown Asheville. The single owner/occupant of the home will use it for her metropolitan home base while hosting rotating visitors from out-of-town. Her east coast architectural family has been helping with details on the project.IMG_2700

The stealthy exterior of the home is finished in black which is on trend internationally. The interior, when finished, will be dressed in raw materials to give it a more rustic loft-like interior. As with most modern homes the indoor-outdoor relationship takes precedent. Thus, windows and doors play a key role in the home’s livability. Here Bobby ordered windows from AWILUX, a company out of Poland and Germany offering commercial style units with some affordability in mind. Comp 03

From bottom to top the ground floor shelters the garage, utility room and some flex space. The second level is all living space connect to the outside by a double sided fireplace. The third level contains two bedroom suites with a shared outdoor shower and laundry. The 4th level and crown of the home contains a versatile open space that can be either live, work or entertaining. The side of this space unfolds to an outdoor terrace overlooking McCormick Field. It will be an incredible entertaining space with the best views of home game fireworks.IMG_2702

Bobby hopes to have the home completed over the winter. The Modern Asheville Real Estate team looks forward to getting an updated tour then. Cheers and thanks Bobby!

Rustic Industrial meets Refined Luxury

IMG_0972Yesterday, Kelly and I had to stop and admire the details, not previously shown, of the unique home we have co-listed with broker Diane Vander Linden. The main house has walls, floors and decks of poured concrete with walls faced in rock. The house was constructed in 1946 by a structural engineer who built Civic 2bomb shelters. There are approximately 1600 square feet of covered cantilevered decks supported by 7″ x 12″ steel beams and beautifully chambered rails of formed concrete that are soft to the touch. All of this firmly and gently perched along the cascading trout stream. Imagine a Burnsville’s “Public Works” style version of Falling Waters or a mini version of the Asheville Civic Center. Enjoy!Distinctive Luxury Estate or-small-024-Lower Patio by Creek-666x444-72dpi
