Modern Sneak Peek | Chicken Hill

Our friend, builder Bill MacCurdy, gave Kelly and I a tour of his latest home under construction in Chicken Hill. He’s just putting the finishing touches on this 3 level, 2 Bedroom and 2.5 Bath home. We look forward to seeing the final touches when it is show ready. Great job Bill!Sun Construction Comp

The Barn

I drove through Chicken Hill, near downtown, this morning to take a look at the 3rd house, the Barn, built by Bill of Sun Construction on West Haywood. The home makes use of the small infill lot in this developing urban area while modernizing the industrial and farmhouse styling of the adjacent historic homes. If you don’t know Chicken Hill, rising just above the River Arts district, make sure you take yourself on a tour or give Kelly and I a call. It is one of my favorite neighborhoods. Enjoy!  TroySunset House

Finally, some clever and well designed “in fill” housing that is badly needed in Asheville.  Located in the creative Chicken Hill area of Asheville it sits between downtown and the River Arts District.  I took a tour of this home today. Derived from the industrial and work cottage venacular of its context it has developed into a smart, loft style home. These healthy built homes pack a lot in a small square footage and represent the future of what homes will become.  Smaller square footage, healthy built and some versatile square footage.  The basement can be a bedroom, office or in-law suite.  The details all fit – from the european style cabinetry to the pine plank flooring and some of the built in shelving you will find these homes both clean and charming.

Here is how Bill MacCurdy describes his listing – “Trend Setting, affordable downtown residence – views of the river and fabulous sunsets, master bdrm with “Juliet” balcony, large flex room in daylight basement w/12′ ceilings, all bedrooms  with private baths, contemporary cabinetry, built-ins, wood and bamboo floors, tile baths, gas fireplace, back deck, front patio, professionally designed, – first of 6 contemporary healthy built Urban “dwellings” designs by Daryl Rantis Architects and Sun Construction”
