René Earnhardt discovered her love of nature through her spirited play in the Blue Ridge Mountains. She ran through the mountain forest wielding a stick as a sword. Streams of sunlight guided her path like a spotlight to secret passages. She’d trade bits of her granola bar with the squirrels for their stories, and she’d follow the sounds of nature; rustling bushes, twittering birds; to find fairy kingdoms.
That imaginative spirit is reflected in the design of the Earnhardt Collection™ Blue Ridge by Schumacher Homes.
“My fondest memories growing up were spent in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and this home design captures the essence of the grandeur mountains I so fondly called home,” says René. “We wanted to create a home that captures that spirit of fantasy – of possibility – that you feel when you connect with nature.
Kerry and René have a sincere love for life in the outdoors that is clearly reflected in the plan for the Blue Ridge. This single-story home features a multi-gabled elevation and is anchored by a huge central great room that flows to both the kitchen and the dining area. Open and spacious with lots of windows, the great room is sure to become your family’s favorite gathering place. But when it’s time to retire, the spectacular owners’; retreat will provide a comfortable space to relax and rejuvenate. Perhaps the most striking features of this NAHB Gold-Award Winning home are its abundant natural light and intriguing architectural elements. Like all Schumacher and Earnhardt Collection™ homes, everything is customizable. So, if there is something you’d like to add or take away, you’re only limited by your imagination!
