2009 Home of the Year: Neathermead Residence

In 2009, the Neathermead residence in Asheville, N.C., was not only deemed worthy of BALA’s highest honor, Home of the Year, but also best in region, and it won interior design and overall custom homes awards. Judges praised the home’s livability, warmth, superb details, and workmanship, simplicity of form, and open living areas. This home was said to be “one foot in contemporary and one foot in traditional. The material palette keeps it from being over-the-top modern.” Architect Ron Carlton of Carlton Architecture, Asheville, decided to add a pavilion that he says has “a wonderful sort of natural glow”. This connects seamlessly with the outdoor living room. Natural materials give this contemporary home a relaxed feel.
