High up in the treetops in South Carolina, you’ll find a modern mountain home like no other. Modern Mountain Tranquility is one of Morgan-Keefe Builders’ most recent custom home works of art. It is located in The Cliffs at Mountain Park community. One of seven Cliffs Communities in the Carolinas, The Cliffs at Mountain Park is ideally situated in Travelers Rest, South Carolina, with proximity to Greenville. This community is comprised of over 2,000 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is home to a walkable, rolling Gary Player golf course surrounded by the storied blue hued mountain views. The Cliffs at Mountain Park features the Cabin for dining, a veranda gathering spot and a wellness center accessible by all Cliffs members.
Modern Mountain Tranquility is aptly named, as it features style and elements that evoke a modern feel. Yet, it blends seamlessly into the mountain landscape where it is located. It’s a home that seems as if it were almost meant to be exactly where it is. The construction and design elements in this modern mountain home result in a Morgan-Keefe work of art that will be cherished for many years by its owners and their friends and family. It is a home that evokes a welcoming feeling from the moment you arrive at the edge of the driveway.
Bringing the Outside In
Modern Mountain Tranquility features 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and is approximately 5,300 square feet. Situated high above a river that runs through The Cliffs at Mountain Park, the home feels as if it is perched in a treetop. It so perfectly blends with the elements that it feels as if the natural surroundings are part of the interior. For instance, warm wood tones in the floors, walls, and ceilings perfectly complement the soft white pallet in many of the rooms and ceilings. The home features an open concept on the main level. Here, the kitchen, dining, living, and main-level screened porch simply flow. Despite the size of this modern mountain home, it has a warm and comfortable feeling. Even the translucent panels on the garage doors welcome natural light into the garage space and contribute to the modern design of the home’s exterior.
Every room in the home integrates the natural colors of the exterior elements. Because of this, as the seasons change it will feel as if they are changing inside the home, as well. Whether you are in the living or dining room, or relaxing in the lower media room or bedrooms, this home celebrates the peace and beauty of the mountains.
A great example is the dual fireplace on the main level of the home. It beautifully incorporates the home’s slate exterior color. This creates warmth amidst the bright and clean design. It’s the mix of warm and cool materials that make this home so welcoming among the trees and flowing river of The Cliffs at Mountain Park.
Pairing Beauty and Function
The home functions so well, you’ll never find yourself searching for anything. It simply seems as if everything is right at your fingertips when you need it. Similarly, the home’s floor plan design feels as if every room is necessary, and no space is wasted. For example, the owner’s work desk nook overlooks a well-planned pocket garden. It allows for productivity, with natural light and inspiration from the environment. The laundry room is bright, beautiful, and contains all the elements necessary for the ultimate in clean.
The bedrooms in Modern Mountain Tranquility are simple and well-designed. Following current home trends, architects and interior designers are creating bedroom spaces designated only for relaxing and sleeping. Therefore, recent design trends call for smaller bedrooms built for resting and expanded living spaces for gathering. We think this design is ideal in this home, as it provides the perfect retreat and exactly the space needed. The bedrooms and bathrooms are light, bright, well-appointed, and clean.
In short, Modern Mountain Tranquility incorporates the best of the outdoors while preserving the peace provided by well-designed interior space. This modern mountain home features the best of both worlds and gives new meaning to tree-top living.
