Asheville, North Carolina has become a hot spot for second homes and destination properties internationally. The success of the area is highly linked back to it’s geographic location and the fact that Asheville lies within the Blue Ridge Mountains, some of the most beautiful mountains on the planet. The mild climate and calm weather also keep people returning to this part of the country. Asheville has adopted many great eateries and restaurants, offers a multitude of outdoor recreation, and in general is a very welcoming place for people from all cultures.
Modern Architecture is a rarity in and around Asheville. Persons seeking mid-century modern, contemporary, or “mountain modern” have a lot to choose from in the housing market, but when you get to pure Modernism, the search becomes quite scarce.
Recently developers and builders have started to offer pure Modern to their clienteles.

Great Examples of Modern Architecture can be found at 565 Elk Mountain Scenic Highway and currently at Misty Parkway in the Cliffs. David Zimmerman, developer of The Prive at 565 Elk Mountain Scenic Highway built an homage to modern there and the home currently seeks dwellers that will appreciate it’s gallery like qualities and expansive views of Asheville and the Pisgah National Forest. Thompson Builders has just completed it’s newest contribution to Modern at 45 Misty Parkway in the Cliffs at Walnut Cove. The home at 45 Misty Parkway offers another good example of where the town is headed in terms of forging new paths to architecture greatness!
