Watson Gap II


The Blue Ridge Mountain Club is a 6200-acre development off of the Blue Ridge Parkway outside Blowing Rock, N.C. The Cottages at Watson Gap II is the second series of developer cottages being built in this development. Designed to be built along a ridgeline, Hutch designed 5 different house plans for the site. While the appearance of the homes are to blend with each other in this area, the floor plans are varied and offer many options from which owners may choose. Also, each home can be tailored to each site by grade, allowing a Main Floor & Lower Level to be built, a Main Floor and Upper (where a lower level isn’t feasible) or all 3 floors. This allows the owners to build smaller versions with 3 Bedrooms or larger versions up to 6 Bedrooms if they like. Multiple exterior elevations are also offered for each design. The key here was to respect the site and topography while maximizing the long-range views and to provide as much versatility to the plans as possible.
