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.

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!Main Front

3 Bedrooms  |  3.5 Baths  |  3333 sqft  |  MLS#314879342 Merrills Cove Rd Asheville-small-016-24-42 Merrills Cove16-666x445-72dpi

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.Level Comp

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. Kitchen Comp

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. Sign

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. back

Modern Atlanta reveals Asheville’s Modern

CalendarKelly and I have been working for years to champion a modern and mid-century home tour here in Asheville. With our help Modern Atlanta has finally brought their expertise in leading a Modern Home tour this weekend for us all to enjoy. Here’s the skinny on what the organization is doing.

First, go HERE to purchase a ticket for the Asheville home tour. Once you purchase a ticket you will get a link to the map, addresses to the homes and times they are open. Below is some info on each of the homes being showcased this weekend by Modern Atlanta and the associated designers. Please note that homes are open either Saturday or Sunday, but not both. Enjoy!

thumb-1The Kenilworth home is being hosted by Samsel Architects who designed a major renovation to this original Tony Lord designed home constructed in the 1950’s. The pedigree home was carefully sited on the nine acres of land and was designed with windows to showcase the view of Lake Kenilworth. The majority of the exterior and interior materials were preserved while the plan was updated with an enhanced kitchen and master suite. This home will be open on Sunday, May 31st from 10am to 4pm.

evelyn-exteriorEvelyn Place was originally a 1960’s ranch home and recently redesigned by Scott Huebner of Brickstack Architects. Over 2500 sqft of additional living space was added, including a two-car garage, screened porch, bluestone terrace and a master suite. This home will be open on Saturday, May 30th from 10am to 4pm.

thumb-2The new Zum House was built this past summer is a green, pre-fabricated, flat-packed dwelling with a high overall R value. The bold, eye-catching facade was assembled on one of the few remaining infill lots in Asheville. The exterior features gray fiber cement board siding with aluminum extruded profiles and flashing. The interior timbers are engineered wood stock with Port Orford cedar timbers on the outside. This home will be open on Saturday, May 30th from 10am to 4pm.

Fontana-Bridge-EntryExterior-e1410183240107The Fontana Bridge Lake House designed by Samsel Architects is a private lake home located in Swain County and was completed in the summer of 2014. The LEED Gold home is designed to integrate harmoniously with the surrounding Appalachian mountain setting. The understated exterior and the thoughtfully chosen palette blend into the topography of the wooded hillside. This home will be open on Saturday, May 30th from 10am to 4pm.

We hope everyone comes out and shows your support to what Modern Atlanta is doing for us here is Asheville. Kelly and I are so grateful to Elayne and their team. Cheers!
