Whisper Mountain has incorporated heritage building materials, adaptive reuse techniques, and the latest environmentally sensitive building choices. Locally made materials and artifacts from area craftsmen celebrate our unique mountain culture.
Davidson Gap, the 2008 Southern Living North Carolina Idea House, is designed by Allison-Ramsey Architects, Inc., of Asheville. The plan and construction of this home artfully demonstrates that green homes can not only be affordable but also magically inviting places to live. While this house is designed to be green (with applications filed for certification to LEED, Energy Star, and North Carolina Healthy Built Home programs), the architects did not sacrifice the traditional and timeless look and feel of this house.
The house is designed to be a mountain family retreat. The open kitchen/living/dining areas take full advantage of views. Expansive and comfortable, this 3,200-sq.-ft.home can easily sleep 12 people.
