Saluda North Carolina: Custom Home Has Great Story to Tell

In Uncategorized on January 24, 2010 at 3:32 am
 
<!––>  I believe every home has a story to tell. The story of the home I recently visited in Saluda, North Carolina, tells a story about reclaimed bricks from an old schoolhouse in Abbeville, SC. It tells a story about heart pine flooring from an old textile mill in Myrtle Beach, SC, and it tells a story about a beautiful iron gate from the historic Seven Hearths estate in Tryon, NC. But the real story of this home is about comfort, romance, lifestyle, and a slower pace of living that has been all but forgotten in our modern society.Saluda, a small historic town with a rich railroad history, is nestled in the Western North Carolina Mountains south of Asheville. The home at 567 Greenville Street is just a short distance from downtown Saluda. The current owners had the 2300 square foot home custom built in 2001. This is the fourth home that the couple has built over their lifetime, and I suspect everything they had learned through that process was incorporated into this home.

From the minute you step inside the home you will notice the flood of natural light from every area of the wide, open floor plan. It is apparent that the design allows for a lot of flexibility in room arrangements to fit individual lifestyles. Pictured here the current owners have their dining room just off the kitchen near the large, antique brick fireplace enclosure. This arrangement adds a cozy, romantic element to the dining experience.

The gorgeous, antique fireplace brick was painstakingly transported from the site of an old school house in Abbeville, SC, and prepared for construction by the owners. The firebox door was handmade by a local craftsman in Tryon, NC. Notice the lovely arch pattern above the built-in niche, and the large, hewn heartwood pine mantle.

 

The guest bedrooms are large and airy, while the natural light and custom details like this sitting area with window make this home truly special. Your guests would enjoy having a private area to read or to take in the garden views.

The guest bath is a work of art. You can take your time while you unwind in style in the antique tub with all the convenience of modern fixtures. The reclaimed brick wall, heart pine floors, and painted wood paneling add texture and interest to the space. Add soft lighting, some scented bath oils, and you will be transported to a bathing experience from days gone by.

Every effort was made during the design and construction to make use of natural light. The large master bedroom is no exception. The room overlooks the multi-tiered gardens that surround the back and side of the home. A separate room with double vanity features reclaimed heart pine cabinets, hand painted Italian tile countertop and great views of the natural surroundings. The master bath also features a glass enclosed shower and large walk-in-closet.

You will find yourself automatically migrating to this cheery sunroom. The comfortable space is filled with light and surrounded by nature. It would make the perfect place to watch the splendor of the changing seasons. The design flexibility of the home would also make this room a candidate for a dining room because of its close proximity to the custom kitchen.

The kitchen cabinets that were custom made for the home are also reclaimed heart pine. The backsplash features hand painted Italian tile. Two large windows at one end overlook an herb garden in the side yard. Imagine having the garden fresh ingredients just outside your door when cooking a gourmet meal for your guests.

The gardens that surround the side and back of the home provide dozens of peaceful areas to sit and enjoy the refreshing mountain air. The day I visited the home there were still remnants of snow from a December snowstorm. Everywhere I walked I could see signs of just how magnificent the blooming garden must be in spring and summer.

This home has an enormous amount of charm. The home was built in 2001, but has the feel and style of a much older home. The home is equally adaptable to large scale entertaining or a more intimate setting. Every room seemed comfortable and inviting. The extensive gardens intermixed with planting beds, slate garden paths, and multiple patios are remarkable and expand the home’s living space into several outdoor rooms.

The home is currently being offered for sale by the owners. If you would like more information or would like to view the home call Dave Middleton @ 828-749-2243 or 828-243-3556

Exit Agape Realty: West Columbia’s Senior Real Estate Specialists

In Uncategorized on January 12, 2010 at 3:53 am

Our brokerage’s expertise in the senior market is based on experience. We have worked with hundreds of senior clients and customers over the last three years. We have discovered that the senior client brings a different set of concerns to the table when considering buying or selling real estate. Security, finances, independence, and downsizing seem to be the most prevalent.

Security is a major concern with most seniors considering a move. They may have recently lost a spouse, and are not used to living alone. They may have some health condition that makes them feel vulnerable. Sometimes their neighborhood has deteriorated and they no longer feel safe. These are all valid concerns that we take into consideration when we talk with the senior about a move.

Finances are also a concern for anyone involved in a real estate transaction. The typical senior client is wary to take on debt. Our experience is that most senior clients wish to transfer current equity into new homes. We have many associates in the financial field who are very familiar with such arrangements.

Independence is important to the senior client. Finding the best solution to keeping the person independent in a safe environment is the goal. Our company has a wealth of experience in helping seniors make informed decisions regarding living options.

Downsizing can be an overwhelming and daunting task for many seniors and the process is frequently fraught with emotional distress. We offer suggestions and solutions based on our previous experience in this area. Sometimes we will suggest that the client talk with someone who has previously gone through the process. Being sensitive to the problem is also very important. Homes and personal belongings have sentimental value and an accompanying host of memories.
