are everywhere here in the mountains of Asheville NC
and the surrounding areas. Many buyers of luxury homes
here in the area like the craftsman homes
that so many of local custom home builders are building here. Timber frame homes
are just one type of craftsman style homes that you will notice when you start shopping for luxury mountain homes here. Craftsman homes mean many things to many different home buyers so we will explore what comes to mind when this Realtor and luxury custom home builder thinks of craftsman homes.
Many craftsman homes have vaulted ceilings
When I think of a craftsman home I immediately think of vaulted ceilings, large timbers and massive stone work throughout the home, both inside and outside. I also think about the high level of detail that will paid to the interior trim work on the home like custom wainscoting, coffered ceilings, multiple layer trims, custom built ins like bookcases, benches, curios and the like. Custom staircases can be a real show piece in a one of a kind craftsman style home. I enjoy massive stone fireplaces with custom mantles as a main focal point in a den or great room. Vaulted ceilings with massive exposed wooden beams will also quickly get my attention upon entering a room.
Craftsman Style Homes in Asheville
Asheville craftsman homes, architects and builders
Many craftsman style homes are usually designed by the home buyer in conjunction with an architect and then built to those exacting standards by a luxury home builder in the area. Floors, kitchens and baths are also main focal points when designing or buying a craftsman home. We educate clients that sometimes its better to purchase an older home that has good bones and then perform a massive renovation to change out kitchen, baths, flooring and wall coverings. Renovations can be a very cost effective way for a home buyer to save money if building new is not an option. Craftsman homes can be as different as the clients that buy them in these mountains, so call us today for a tour of Asheville.
