A modernized home in Transylvania County reconnects with the land’s history.
Curb Appeal With the help of Parker Platt, the Witherspoons now reside in a modernized, ranch-inspired home.
The structure resides on what used to be an all-boys summer camp.
“But the house in its original form—a 1950’s ranch with some native stone accents—didn’t take full advantage of its beautiful surroundings.” —Joanne O’Sullivan
Outside In - The French Broad Camp for Boys boasted 200 acres in its heyday—from the back porch, the Witherspoon family enjoys a stunning view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Wooden Design - Accents of timber line the home, not just in flooring but along walls and even countertops and tables.
At the home’s entryway, guests and residents are greeted with faux stone tile, plants, and warm, natural colors.
New + Natural - Flowing through the powder room are the same combination of natural finishes and modern fixtures installed throughout the home, maximizing space and feel.
Bedroom Oasis - The Witherspoon’s home is filled with ties to the land. Accenting the master bedroom, the wood-paneled wall bridges the thousands of trees that cover the property with the interior space. In the bathroom, stone and wood finish adorn the fixtures.
Camping Out - The summer of 1914 marked the inaugural class of campers at the French Broad Camp for Boys. More than forty campers got to enjoy activities like tennis, swimming, baseball, hiking, and more.
