Originally, Bill owned a post-war weekend home. He wanted more room to entertain his friends so the home came down and his imagination took off. He worked with his partner, architect Michael Faust, and the storybook inspiration included pitched roofs and ornate details, all completed by Christmas, 2011. The fairy tale images were blended with the local architectural influences of our Appalachian region. “Dutch and Scottish details were added as a nod to Bill’s family heritage,” says Faust. The result is Laurel Nest, a home tucked into the hillside with exhaustive attention to detail inside and out.
