This stunning modern mountain home was designed for aging in place by Living Stone Design + Build, located in a secluded, thickly-wooded neighborhood in Asheville, North Carolina. Encompassing 4,190 square feet of living space, this residence boasts five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms.

Throughout this home you will find plenty of accessibility upgrades that include an elevator, enabling the homeowner to live out his days in the comfort of his own home. It was also designed with a broader future in mind. The homeowner envisioned settling into a quiet life where he could enjoy friends and family.

The wood and brick exterior facade and low profile of this home blend into its natural setting. The dwelling was constructed as a private respite from the outside world, as evidenced by the solid wood, windowless doors that grace the entrance. This is a place where the owner’s family can feel welcome to stay and will eventually be passed down through the generations.

The owner designed this as a forever home and a legacy home to pass down to his family. Rather than give them a financial inheritance, he wanted to give them a place to gather and spend time together, long into the future.

The downstairs provides a kitchenette, a bunk space, bathrooms, and a sitting room–everything needed for a home away from home. The upstairs features a large kitchen, cozy seating areas, an outdoor living space, and sliding doors that fold completely away to seamlessly blend the interior with the exterior.

Together, the upper and lower levels create the serene, intimate family gathering space the homeowner has always imagined. However, there was more to the concept of longevity than the home’s function. There was also the style to consider.

The owner wanted his home to have a style that would endure into the future, so the architects focused on giving it a timeless quality. The home features clean lines and a contemporary design, but it’s not so modern that it can’t transition into a different style as trends and fads change.

Warm colors, wood and stone elements, and captivating custom details, including the hand-crafted metal tree branch handles on the front door, the wooden beams that span the vaulted ceiling, and the large windows that offer exquisite views of the surrounding trees, serve to make the home unique give it a timeless, intrinsic sense of belonging with its surroundings.
