Nestled deep in the North Carolina woods, this Asheville house is substantial and grounded with big accents and large luxury. Built in 2005 on more than an acre surrounded by an English stone wall, the $2.5 million estate uses copper for the gutters and seams on the slate roof and quarter-sawn limestone for much of the 4-bed/6.5-bath home’s flooring. Custom made iron fixtures are controlled by a high-tech one-touch lighting system and the kitchen is outfitted with high-end Sub-Zero, Lacanche and Wolfe appliances [via realtor]
