The Story

Price Conscious International Buyers were looking to build a large home to accommodate their parents, to upfit the project with luxurious appointments, and not attract attention from passerbys.  

Key Challenges

One of the bigger challenges of the project was designing the house to look modest on the outside and not give away the grandeur of the inside.  Another was truly programming the home for 3 generations of family that would live there. These future homeowners wanted to care for both sets of parents, in addition to raising their own children in this home.  


The homeowner was very involved in both the design and pricing of the finishes in the home.  She worked with a local designer, Lisa Stewart to select the finishes and furnishing. Overwhelmingly, the homeowner’s selections were a  wonderful representation of their personalities.
