Mars Hill, NC
New Construction

This Madison county residence is located on rolling farmland, and is an interpretation of a contemporary farmhouse. It has expansive glass to capture mountain views and passive solar heating. The home’s green building features include rainwater cisterns, high-efficiency insulation and locally harvested wood throughout the interior. Outdoor spaces expand the living area and create a strong connection to the mountain landscape.

This residence won a 2012 Fine Homebuilding Award for its practical space planning and design which allows the owners to stay in the home as their needs change with age. Fine Homebuilding posted a video of the award winning design and interviews with the architect and the homeowners. Watch the video here.
