This contemporary rustic home in western North Carolina is a great example of combining different styles and applying thoughtful design to create something extraordinary.
The home’s entry door incorporates a single sidelite that mirrors the four lites (glass windows) in the door. While individually the separate components may seem asymmetrical, the thoughtful design allows the eye to perceive perfect symmetry when the door and side lite are placed together. An arched one-lite transom spans the two components below it, emphasizing the unit’s verticality—at more than 11 feet tall.
This entry unit is made of quarter-sawn African Mahogany, and is finished in a custom Sun Mountain glaze.
While the mountain contemporary design incorporates natural materials, including the stone and wood timber entry portico, the interior favors the clean lines of modern design. The contemporary kitchen design (above left) includes a 3-lite pocket door with Satin-style glass leading to the pantry. It is made of select Poplar and is finished in Sun Mountain’s Cajun stain.
This 3-lite style door style continues to the powder room (above right).
Glass is exchanged for wood panels in the master bathroom door. Again, the door is made of select Poplar with Cajun stain. The panels are flat, with a very slight, curved sticking profile on the edge of the stiles and rails. This small, thoughtful detail creates a lovely finished look to the clean, modern design.
