old-world-craftsman-home-exterior

This gorgeous old-world craftsman home was designed by Living Stone Design + Build along with ID.ology Interiors, located in Black Mountain, a quintessential small town just outside of Asheville, North Carolina. This style of this dwelling was a fusion design that pays homage to church cathedral ceiling detailing. Step inside this home to find 3,066 square feet of living space with four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Designed for aging in place, this residence has an accessory dwelling unit on the lower level. It is a certified green and certified energy-star home and it fits perfectly on the lot, maximizing the views. From an interiors perspective, the homeowners wished to pull in some modern features as well as incorporate some of the existing furnishings they already had along with some new things.

What We Love: This old world craftsman home offers its inhabitants a warm and inviting layout for aging in place. Thoughtful design features throughout provide comfortable living spaces for daily living and entertaining. We are especially loving the lower-level design that is used for guests and can later be used for multi-generational living for the owners to reside in their golden years with simple access to the garage.

Above: One of the architect’s favorite features is the cathedral-light great room with the beams and the valleys, representative of the homeowner being an Episcopal Priest. This is a throwback to the way she was brought up and the profession that she went into.

Above: Born out of the cottages and castles of northern Germany, the German Schmear technique has become popular throughout Europe and America. How’s It Done? According to the architects, “depending on the look you desire, a mixture of wet mortar is troweled or painted onto the surface of your brick. Before it’s completely dry, some of it is wiped off to expose parts of the brick. This gives the brick fireplace a rustic, “Old World” look.” The coffee table was sourced from Atelier Maison & Co.

Above: One of the desires of the homeowner was to have a complete living space on the lower level, adjacent to the garage. This way there is aging in place, as well as an additional space for family and friends or for multi-generational living.

Above: The challenge presented to the architects was to fit the homeowner’s program fit into a quaint, tight lot. It has a street presence that is narrow, so they had to have access to the garage down the side of the setbacks. They also had to tuck in some porches to maximize the breathtaking views.
