Featured Custom Home Project
The Craftsman movement began over one hundred years ago when craftsmen decided to start a new trend, bucking the mass-produced Victorian-style homes for customized homes with hand-carved wood and unique details. Our Modern Craftsman homes have the same meticulous attention to detail that the old woodworkers were so proud of generations ago.
Modern Craftsman homes are known for their functionality, charm, and hand-made details. The large dormer, the cedar shakes, mahogany garage doors with lanterns mounted above them, and metal roof accent, and multiple gables evoke nostalgia from a bygone era. The front porch is welcoming and stately with its beautiful railing and columns. Yet all the latest and best materials are used.
The rear of the home has a view of a lovely creek running through the backyard from the spacious back screened-in porch and covered deck. And the large dormer window adds a touch of Craftsman charm on this side of the house.
The custom home has a dramatic L-shaped stairway with a platform near the bottom and stained wood banister with metal spindles.
Chocolate brown wide-planked hardwood floors provide an earthy, warm contrast to the white foyer and moss-green dining room with custom molding.
The home has high ceilings and extra-thick crown molding above the white shaker kitchen cabinets and a custom range hood cover for additional drama. The large eat-in kitchen island has dark stained wood to contrast with the rest of the white kitchen, giving it the feel of a piece of furniture, rather than kitchen cabinetry.
The kitchen has a gas range and oven, a handy microwave drawer, and a dry bar area with an under-the-counter wine cooler, creating the perfect home environment for entertaining.
The open-concept breakfast area flows into the french doors and the moss green home office with custom molding that also had a full bathroom and could double as a second master suite if needed.
A large open living space, with eat-in kitchen, has custom built-in cabinets and bookshelves on each side of the gas fireplace. And the wall is ready for a flat-screen TV to be mounted above the white mantle.
Custom moss green cubbies and mudroom bench complement the adjacent laundry room with moss green shaker cabinets to prevent any mess from tracking through the house.
Every family member will find a place for shoes, coats, and school supplies so they can be ready to leave every morning conveniently through the garage.
The master bathroom has a dual vanity and blue custom cabinets as well as a large separate shower and luxurious sculptured tub with a handheld spray wand.
The view of the creek in the backyard from the deck is serene. The screened porch is the most relaxing place in the house with a cool breeze and the sound of the babbling brook in the background.
