When I saw this white house in Asheville, North Carolina, it stopped me in my tracks. Gorgeous!
Platt Architects say the clients asked for a rambling family home with classic Southern style that was “simple and old fashioned, right down to the ‘trick-or-treater’ front porch.” Take a look!
A New House with Classic Southern Style
It was featured in Carolina Home + Garden magazine, which explained that it incorporates elements of a classic, Southern small-town home, “but also features a carefully concealed solar power array, radiant heat and a strategic layout that maximizes ambient light.”
Homeowners Tom and Toni enlisted architects Al and Parker Platt, interior designer Kathryn Long of Ambiance Interiors, and builder Marc Tyner of Tyner Construction, to help them bring their dream house to life.
“Toni knew the mood she wanted,” Kathryn Long told the magazine. “It was that of the houses built from the 1920s to the 1940s. We came to call it ‘Between the Two Wars.’ She wanted the comfortable feeling of a home that had been there for a long time.”
