Property Description

Rewind time in this Iconic Eco-Architectural Gem known as The Remington. Designed by local architect Richard A. Webster and commissioned by Dr. & Mrs. Lloyd Remington in the 1970s, this earth shelter emerges from a hillside in Asheville’s Five Points neighborhood - minutes from Downtown, adjacent to UNCA trails, Asheville Botanical Gardens & eclectic restaurants. The swanky “Hobbitat” showcases principles of promoting a sustainable lifestyle, manifested in the 48’ continuous skylight. The ‘solar attic’ design extends the entire home’s length providing natural light throughout. Fluted concrete walls (more than 200 tons of concrete) help regulate temperatures. Precast steel-reinforced walls & hillside location were likely inspired by the survival curriculum Remington taught during his Civil Defence course at UNCA. Inside leads with a moody Mid-century aesthetic. With chic color and texture play, modern finishes and conveniences, this 3 sleeping room home passes the vibe check.
