Residential Architectural Styles

There are a seemingly endless variety of Architectural styles that can influence the design of your home. Here is a sampling:

  • TUDOR / ENGLISH COUNTRY INFUENCED STYLES

    Inspired by both the castle and cottage architecture of medieval times, these houses have steep pitched roofs with prominent cross gables. They feature multi-paned casement windows, decorative heavy wood timbers and massive stone chimneys. These elegant homes evoke a cozy and romantic feeling.

  • TUSCANY INSPIRED STYLES

    Commonly known as "Tuscan Style", these usually single-story homes feature low-pitched, tile roofs with bracketed eaves. Stone and stucco are used with soft, eyebrow arches. Earth tones combine with exposed stone work to color the interior spaces, which are accented by wood beam detailing. These homes have a feeling of comfort and warmth.

  • CRAFTSMAN INSPIRED STYLES

    Low pitched gable roofs, deep overhangs with decorative eave btackets and large front porches supported by tapered square columns characterize this style of home. Handcrafted stone and woodwork defines warm, comfortable and personalized spaces throughout.

  • RANCH / HILL COUNTRY STYLES

    The use of native materials in an open, typically single-story floor plan helps to define these homes. Simple, low-pitched, metal roofs extend out over large porches. The feeling is light and airy with both indoor and outdoor living spaces. These homes reflect a casual comfort.

  • SPANISH / MEDITERRANEAN INFLUENCED STYLES

    Red tiled roofs and stucco arches announce this recognizable style of home. Open courtyards, tiled floors and deeply shaded porches give these homes a relaxed yet stylish feel.

  • QUEEN ANNE / VICTORIAN INSPIRED STYLES

    Fanciful and even flamboyant, these homes feature steeply pitched roofs, turrets, classical columns and arches. Grand entrances and ornate detailing speaks of elegance and luxury.
