A breathtaking barn style artist retreat in the North Carolina Mountains

MossCreek Home Designs has created this unique artist’s retreat nestled on a hilltop property overlooking Lake Toxaway, the largest private lake in western North Carolina. The cabin is comprised of two 19th-century structures, a two-story post-and-beam barn salvaged from Indiana and a two-story log cabin from Tennessee, connected by a glass breezeway.

The historic cabins were dismantled and then reassembled on-site. As the mountain residence for an accomplished artist, this 3,630 square foot cabin has three bedrooms and four bathrooms. Highlights include an abundance of natural light, antique timbers and logs, and several spaces designed to amplify the artist’s work and to serve as studios for creativity.

Reclaimed poplar and oak wood can be found throughout this cabin, along with antique doors and wide-board wood floors complemented by reproduction rosehead nails. The railings, chandeliers, and sconces were forged by blacksmiths at the John C. Campbell Folk School. The dwelling boasts magnificent views of Cold Mountain and Panthertail Mountain throughout.

The barn, to the left of the breezeway, was transformed into a great room, boasting a 26-foot vaulted ceiling and a large stone fireplace. A pair of French doors flank the fireplace, which opens to a deck and an outdoor fireplace.

The kitchen features a fireplace and a bread oven along with stainless-steel appliances. A beautiful backsplash of hand-painted tiles, in addition to tiles found in the bathrooms, were made by Martha Coursey of House on the Hill Studio in Atlanta.
