Accessed by an abandoned logging road, the Carolina Hillside House is a secluded getaway above North Wilkesboro's Kerr Scott Lake. The entire exterior is clad in untreated cypress, allowing for a unique patina to form on the outer facade. At the center of the home, a large opening separates the main living area from the sleeping quarters, creating a sheltered patio to enjoy an outdoor fireplace. It's elevated setting pairs with a generous amount of glazing to lend views of the forest below.
