Sited in the scenic Town Mountain Preserve, NC, this 4200 sf house is perched on a knoll with magnificent views of the surrounding landscape. The lower level is built into the hillside so that one enters at grade and is greeted by two stories of mountain views.
The house emerges from its rocky site with exterior finishes that complement the landscape, such as natural stone, heavy timber, and dark siding. The traditional roofline references historic homes of Asheville, while the interior has the feel of a contemporary art gallery, with clean lines, steel, glass, and finished wood.
Throughout the main level of the house, there is very little gypsum board, as our client preferred the warmer look of shiplap. Utilizing wood as a finish material adds visual interest to every space, especially the dining room, where the shiplap walls transition to a vaulted shiplap ceiling, accentuated by natural light from all sides.
