Built in 2013, the Redbud House is a beautiful contemporary design home set in a small grove of redbuds, rhododendrons, flame azaleas, and mountain laurels. The circle drive features edible landscaping of blueberries, strawberries, and herbs; a path of native stone leads to the front door. Drawing inspiration from its wooded setting, the home exterior speaks to mountain craft design with its extensive dry-stack stonework, cedar shakes, and locust trunk porch columns. Inside, the soaring space is light filled, and in this passive solar structure the many energy efficiency measures are complemented by modern design features that include floor to ceiling commercial glass windows, concrete flooring, and steel I-beams.
