The Highlander

The Highlander

ur Highlander is virtually the same as the Mountain Laurel 2 with the exception that the house is designed with a hipped roof instead of a gabled roof.  It has all the benefits of the Mountain Laurel 2 including the lower level terrace walk-out.  This home's outward appearance reflects the architectural style typical of many old mountain homes of the Piedmont region of the Southern Appalachian mountains.  Its' high, steeply pitched roof lines open more space for vaulted ceilings over the first floor and has quaint detailing in native materials, rough textures and earthy colors.  At 2,860 sq. ft. this house is amazingly functional and full of surprises.

This plan, too, is designed specifically for a sloping site that allows for a lower level walk-out in lieu of a second floor.  As many mountain and lake- front properties offer this potential, a lower level takes full advantage of resultant space below and frees up space above the first floor for high, vaulted ceilings, bright clerestories and dormer windows that allow the sun to stream in.  The great room and master bedroom open directly onto the covered, autumn porch with its exterior fireplace, making it the ideal spot for staying warm on chilly autumn days.  A large deck off the dining room provides extra entertaining and dining area outside.  Off the foyer, a cozy or home office sports a high, coffered ceiling and clerestory.  Below, a den with third fireplace and two additional bedrooms with private baths open to the stoned terrace for easy access to the lake or other mountain activities.
