This new modern house, located in the beautiful mountains of Weaverville, is surrounded by breathtaking hardwood forest. The owners requested a design that would accommodate their preference for “aging in place,” which supports accessibility and comfort for any stage of life. That was the driving factor of the design for the proposed 3,000-square-foot custom residence.
The main floor contains three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and an open space for the kitchen, dining and living area. A large, north-facing screen porch provides ample indoor/outdoor space and houses its own fireplace, making the room enjoyable year-round.
The lower-level includes a walk-out basement that provides additional storage, mechanical and studio space.
The low pitch of the roof creates a large surface area for solar panels, which supports the goal of being a net-zero home, certified by the rigorous Zero Energy Ready program.
