Many of the popular gated communities near Asheville, NC may feature the Cumberland Trace design by MossCreek, a popular architectural firm in Western North Carolina. At The Coves, we know the home design offers an excellent option to buyers who desire a rustic home that blends beautifully with its surroundings using natural elements indigenous to the area. The home’s predesigned floor plan shortens the construction period, so your family can be settled into your new home more quickly. Using a popular predesigned floor plan also makes home building costs more predictable.
Notice how the dramatic use of exterior wood, stone and glass evokes an image of old-time mountain communities. But don’t let that fool you. The Cumberland Trace is as modern as today, with an eye toward making your living and entertaining both comfortable and fun.
Well designed North Carolina mountain homes compliment the mountain scenery and changing climate. They cater to aging Baby Boomers needs which include a spacious open floor plan, and the master bedroom is conveniently on the main level.
The Cumberland Trace home is also available with either two or three stories. By building several stories, you multiply the floor area without significantly adding costly square footage to the foundation and roof – the most expensive parts of any house. Multiple story homes also work well on mountain property providing easy access basements.
The two-story model has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a total of 1,630 square feet. In the three-story model, there are five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The total square footage is 2,654. And you can add a detached garage to either one.
At The Coves Mountain River Club, buyers can choose one to 20 acres or there are cabin home sites that are close to the community’s amenities. Cabin lots have smaller footprints, and the landscape maintenance is provided for you.
