Decorated by interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn, the fully furnished HGTV Urban Oasis 2015 features an open-concept floorplan with two bedrooms and two baths. All the renovations on the home were overseen by HGTV house planner Jack Thomasson, which included raising the original roof to include a loft over the dining room. Designed by Wilson Architects and fully renovated by JAG and Associates Construction, the home remains indicative of the Asheville style: bold, transitional, creative, vintage, and handmade, with an emphasis on art and practicality.
The design incorporates natural materials with a nod to industrial elements. The expansive front porch and back deck extend the living space of the home to the outdoors. The outdoor spaces celebrate Asheville craftsmanship from exposed beams above the front door to a backyard sanctuary that is draped in red and white curtains to provide privacy for a morning cup of coffee or the perfect backdrop for an intimate dinner party.
"HGTV worked with real estate broker Mike Figura of Mosaic Realty to find a location that was close to the city's most popular restaurants, shops and art galleries," said Ron Feinbaum, general manager, HGTV Home Promotions. "Located near the popular Vermont Avenue and Haywood area, the renovated 1920s bungalow features many new upgrades both inside and out, with touches that make it a hot property for sustainable urban living at its best in a trendy neighborhood. For families, we found a home that is close to schools and a short walk or bike ride to a local community park."
