Sylva, NC (February 20, 2020) – Balsam Mountain Preserve, a conservation-oriented residential community in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, is excited to reveal a first look at Doubletop Village’s Model Cottage. The mountain modern interiors were designed by local Waynesville-based The Architectural Studio, PLLC. and the architect of note for the Doubletop Village cottages is renowned Atlanta-based firm Harrison Design.
The Model Cottage is the Foxtown design, featuring three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms and enjoys over 2,822 total square feet of indoor and outdoor living. Designed to be move-in ready, the Doubletop Village cottage product features five distinctive floor plans and three design options for the kitchen, bath, living areas and bedrooms.
The light filled, open-concept first floor is perfect for entertaining with a beautiful dining table nook, bar-seating and an expansive front porch overlooking the community’s Great Lawn. The stone fireplace and custom mantle evoke the feeling of a luxury mountain retreat, while the neutral tones and wood accents channel a more modern farmhouse feel.
To express the upscale outdoor lifestyle at Balsam Mountain Preserve, the community partnered with Smithey Ironware Co., an heirloom quality cookware company based out of Charleston, SC, Harry Barker, an eco-friendly, stylish pet accessory company and Diamond Brand Outdoors, a local Asheville outfitter, to accessorize the cottage.
The master bedroom, located on the ground floor, features access to the front porch, a generous closet and master bathroom. Upstairs, the landing is perfect for kids or a quiet afternoon reading with space for a couch and 180 degree windows. The second floor bedrooms each have their own bathroom and closet, plus expansive views of the surrounding mountain ranges.
Doubletop Village is a mountain hamlet of dining and recreational amenities set in a prime location within the 4,400-acre preserve, overlooking Balsam’s Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course and Plott Balsam Mountain Range. Doubletop Village will feature a new grille, the Summit House, with a private dining room and an expansive terrace for outdoor dining. Across the courtyard, the Mine Tavern will offer casual indoor and outdoor restaurant service. The Village will also include a General Store and Pro Shop, as well as the organic Ruby City Farm and two great lawns for bocce, croquet, badminton, putting green and other sports.
