The Asheville

3 - 6 Bedrooms      3 - 5 Bathrooms       2,700+ Square Feet

The Asheville plan incorporates many exciting new features that we've seen our customers implement in their customization design meetings of the last few years.  Walking up the front steps, the optional wide porch evokes southern comfort and provides an ample seating area.  The large front room is well suited for an office, a dining room, or even a first floor bedroom and bath.  Entering the front door, a gracious staircase and foyer give way to Parkwood's most open floor plan yet.  Standard 10-foot ceilings enhance the connected feel of the large kitchen, family room, and gathering room.  Optional rear decks on both the first and second floors provide the chance to expand the outdoor living space and connect the family room and/or master bedroom to the large backyard.

Exterior Elevations

The Asheville - Brookfield

Architect's Notes

The Asheville Brookfield shows how historic styles meld as one style lost favor and another takes its place. This house would be seen in the 1840’s and ‘50s as the Greek Revival style was waning and the decorative and asymmetrical Victorian style emerged. The brackets at the roof eave, the two-over-two windows with capped trim, and four-panel door are all commonly seen in Italianate Victorian homes, while the lunette window in the gable and low-pedimented gable are remnants of the Greek Revival’s influence.

 

The Asheville - Breckenridge

Architect's Notes

The Asheville Breckenridge is a good example of Victorian eclecticism, showing both Queen Anne and Stick Style influences. The stepping gable with bay window and brackets below are typical of the Queen Anne style, while the porch brackets and paired columns are emblematic of the Stick Style. The 6-over-1 window lite pattern and the bay window reflect the picturesque ideal of the Victorian age, as does the mix of siding and shingle textures. All of these were made possible by the Industrial Revolution, which resulted in a proliferation of mass-produced ornamentation.
