Why we have a crush on this property
Tucked away on a side street in Asheville, this three-bedroom claims to be the first shipping container home in town. Its custom design is evident in its airy, open layout, not to mention its rippling metal walls and ceilings.
A wood stove warms the living and dining spaces, while in the kitchen, bar seating and a farmhouse sink add to its modern atmosphere. Barn doors and a clawfoot tub in one of the bathrooms are a few other unique features.
There’s also a more than 300-square-foot loft that sits over the main living area, accessible via a spiral staircase. It’s ideal for a studio or at-home office, and overlooks the front yard from a wall of huge windows.
