This home was designed to provide the best southern view possible from the main or upper level. The entry is located at ground level and a grand stair leads friends and family to the open floor plan above. Open and covered decks also add to the extraordinary living space where on a clear night the lights of Charlotte, North Carolina are visible in the far distance.
This craftsmen style residence, built in Hickory, North Carolina on an open and gently sloping terrain, captures the look and majesty of a former time using natural materials. The owner wanted the plan to be as open as possible with the stone surrounded swimming pool as a primary focus.
This residence sits atop a ridge in the mountains high above Banner Elk, North Carolina. Large boulders and wood siding dominate the exterior design. An open floor plan and large outdoor living spaces give the home an uniqueness all its own.
Nestled into the surrounding hillside, this beautiful home has open views to the quiet and serene lake beyond. The open floor plan allows the owner, family and friends to enjoy evenings in front of the great room stone fireplace, while the large expanse of windows and doors help to frame the westerly, long-range vista across the lake. The spacious, outdoor covered and open decks give ample room for large and small gatherings to enjoy the cool summer evenings around the fireplaces and built in summer kitchen. The relaxed design layout, natural materials, and heavy timber beams and posts with timber accents are compatible features that help to blend this home into the landscape.
