Custom Build 3,001 to 6,000 square feet

Custom Home at Meadowbrook Park

Initiated by a request to design the client’s next traditional home, this project culminated in a custom home rich in architectural details.

Located adjacent to community green space and a walkway, this home needed to balance openness and scenic views with privacy. The garages and a motor court strategically buffer one side while a stone wall and pocket gardens separate the front yard from the green space. The breezeway portico, complete with a cozy fireplace, enjoys southern exposure and is a welcoming entry point.

On the inside, the home’s floor plan is not the usual wide-open design so often seen these days; instead, numerous axial lines run continuously throughout the plan, providing the desired connectivity. These axial lines offer great viewing angles throughout the home, providing a “thrill of the journey” as one circulates through.

The first-floor primary suite serves as an internal focal point, though it is closed off for privacy. The dining room, sunroom, great room, kitchen and breakfast room all benefit from exposure to the green spaces.

The exterior combines traditional elements—like Hardie shingle siding and cedar trim—with warm stone accents. Conversely, the interior boasts a light, airy color palette, wide-plank wood flooring and comfortable millwork, creating an inviting and relaxed atmosphere. Though a new home, the warmth of old-home charm still abounds throughout this richly detailed residence.
