Old Southern Highlands Style for a New North Carolina Retreat.
Antique woods add a sense of history to a gracious part-time home in the Blue Ridge Mountains

When a pair of Florida retirees decided to return part-time to their home state of North Carolina, they asked architect Al Platt in Brevard to design a new house that looked like an old Southern Highlands homestead. “They just wanted a house that fit the vernacular of this place,” Platt says.
The architect figured that the best way to achieve this would be by using reclaimed wood. “It imparts a feeling of age,” he says. “It almost disappears into the forest. And it’s very low maintenance.”
The resulting house, completed by Morgan Keefe Builders earlier this year, wraps the residents in a cocoon of antique woods: aged chestnut on the walls, hemlock on the ceilings and oak underfoot. Salvaged bricks were sliced into wafers and used to pave the lower level. And reclaimed timbers were stacked in front, log-cabin-style, making the rambling house look like a mountain shack that was expanded over several generations — instilling an instant sense of history without compromising the conveniences of today.
