Modern Asheville hosts some of our best homes this year in our 4th annual tour in our mountain city. The tour, sponsored by the Atlanta Design Festival organization and Modern Asheville Real Estate, will feature six very unique homes.
Many people associate Asheville with the 19th-century Biltmore Estate. Today, living here is not about turrets, gargoyles or excess of any kind. Our city in the mountains is a playful escape where nature, culture and creativity prevail. The local terrain and climate make outdoor living appealing nine months out of the year.
Asheville residents are passionate about designed spaces, too. Modern Asheville Real Estate’s design partners balance cool, clean lines with the warmth of Mother Earth through site-specific design, view angles, natural light and materials, and sustainability. They are pioneers of innovative building and stewards fo the environment.
Please join us, along with our community architects, builders and homeowners for our satellite home tour on May 26th to find out what makes a modern lifestyle herd in Asheville so unique, so special and so very possible. Find information and tickets here. Cheers!
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.

This quote by the artist and craftsman, captures the spirit of this custom crafted, modern home constructed with heirloom quality craftsmanship affectionately named — the Redbud. This home will be on the Modern and Contemporary Home Tour this weekend and the only home listed for sale. Please stop by and meet the owner, designer and builder/craftsman of this beautiful home and sustainable community. Please be sure to buy your ticket in advance here. Cheers!
The floor of the light filled living space is polished concrete and sets the stage for gallery style living while absorbing the sun to keep the cool space warm. Rich hand crafted details of ash and oak are used sparingly and mindfully with plenty of white space to keep your eye uncluttered from excess. The main level provides all you need for living including the kitchen, living, dining, laundry and the master bedroom en-suite. The upper level has two bedrooms suites for your family or friends with a flexible loft for extra living, office or a studio to meet all your creative needs.
The kitchen, the heart of any home, has been specially designed to do more with less. The efficient work space is flanked on either side with spacious and tactile surfaces atop rich wood cabinetry. Everything you need is at your fingertips with an ample pantry nearby to store all the extras. It comes fully furnished with quality Bosch appliances. Located adjacent are the side entry mudroom and laundry room for fully servicing the home.
The natural beauty of the Redbud veils the sophisticated mechanics that render it near Net Zero in efficiency. It effectively uses both passive and active solar for energy and heating. Further heating and cooling are supported by a geothermal heat pump and a wood stove for enhancing that Danish modern style coziness. Electric bills are close to nothing for this 3400 sqft home. There is nothing more to do, but to live lightly in this earth grounded home.
The heirloom quality built Redbud is the second of three homes creating the dawning green, net zero community of Green Acres in South Asheville. Green Acres rests convenient to all the amenities of South Asheville while remaining a rustic getaway for private sustainable living or urban style homesteading. The 2.62 acres that accompany the home have the starts of a richly composted, organic veggie garden and berries. The neighbors further support the community with fruit trees and other shared ways to live off the land.
You can’t buy them on the day of the tour. Buy them now — here.
