Estate Series: Customized Middleburg II 

 

Our Estate Series is known for fine living on a grand scale. These floor plans go up to 15,000 square feet and give homeowners the space to customize with almost any idea they can imagine. 

One family had a beautiful vision for customizing their estate home. Upstairs, the original floor plan had the sitting room in the rear of the home and the master bedroom at the entry. They elected to reverse the two rooms, moving the master to the back of the home to take advantage of the gorgeous natural lighting and views.  We also added an upstairs loft for a second family room/study area.

With every homeowner, we conduct a building plan interview. This is essential – not just to learn about ideas for today, but to learn about future plans so that we can build necessary infrastructure to support them. At this home, the owner planned to install an indoor sauna with a wet room and exterior access for a future outdoor pool. To support her plans, we built those rooms with wall solutions appropriate for increased moisture and weight-appropriate flooring. She also wanted to keep an existing Sport Court so we worked construction around the space to avoid damaging the area. By planning ahead, we were able to save her money in the long run.

To finish the home, we worked with the owner to customize the exterior, including cast stone window surrounds and a recessed/covered entryway. The result was a truly stunning home that this family fell in love with. 

Our clients come to us because we work with them to accomplish their unique vision. We may start with a floor plan, but this semi-custom home demonstrates our belief – you imagine it, and we’ll build it.
