A modern refuge cantilevers over the Blue Ridge Mountains

LS3P Living in collaboration with ID Studio Interiors has designed this stunning 3,000-square-foot rustic modern refuge that is located in a gated retirement community that skirts the southernmost range of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The structure is anchored to a steeply sloping site with retaining walls of Swannanoa stone, western red cedar, and a standing seam metal roof.

The dwelling is intentionally simple, with large expanses of glass to take in the surrounding nature, blurring indoor and outdoor boundaries.

On the street side, the dwelling appears to be partially buried into the site, while on the view side, the main volume of the structure cantilevers out over the long stone wall.

The wall of this hallway carries through from the exterior and is Swannanoa stone from Western North Carolina.

This modern refuge in the Blue Ridge Mountains is composed of a rustic material palette and simple details, focusing on serene views.

This home feels like it is hovering over the tree canopy from the main living spaces, promoting an overall sense of relaxation and calm.

The stone wall next to the staircase is a roughly squared Tennessee fieldstone.
