Mid century modern appeal and an incredible setting in Biltmore Forest describe the property I recently had the pleasure of helping my friend, Jimmy Olson, purchase.
The homes exterior is stunning and while the interior had some mid century modern elements, a 1990’s renovation left it needing some updates. Jimmy, equipped with plenty of renovation experience, and an appreciation for mid century modern design has launched into a major renovation of this gem. See some before and after photos of what’s happened so far.
Bringing the outside in is a hallmark of the mid century modern era so it’s surprising there weren’t more windows in the original design to showcase the beautiful surroundings. This has been rectified by adding additional windows in the living room (see before and after above and below) and primary suite.
Jimmy says “it’s wonderful to see those sunken living room views opened up.”
Two casement windows have also been added to the primary suite.
Glass-panel french doors in the primary bedroom provide light and access to the back yard.
Dramatic charcoal exterior and a new garage door with a vertical windows make a visual impact!
Wow! A grand mahogany entrance door with sidelights has replaced the original double front doors
The fireplace has been refreshed with tile and a nook created for a flat screen TV surrounded by floating shelves
Stay tuned for more soon!
