“After interviewing several other builders, we knew within the first 10 minutes of our meeting that Sunset would be our builder. We both felt Mark would be the best to guide us through the process, and we continue to be impressed with the people with whom Sunset aligns themselves.”
Project Style: Urban Contemporary
Size: 5 bedrooms; 5.5 bathrooms; 6,331 sq. ft.
Home Story: This family’s previous residences, townhomes and single family, were always new construction within the confines of developer communities. So with a multitude of building experience and a well-honed wish list, they were primed for their first custom home. Who knew the fates would conspire for a year and a half before serving up the perfect mix of location, price and virtues. Sunset was on-site for each contender, advising on the dream/reality balance.
Challenges & Points of Interest: ‘Contemporary with character, open floor plan, and must be great for entertaining’ were the initial criteria from the homeowners. The upside to the lengthy location hunt was a thoroughly-researched initial floor plan provided to the architect by the homeowners.
The resulting cantilevered elevation details,
focal-point central staircase, and 3rd car garage’s entertainment/pool room reflect the flourishing collaboration. The double lot also allowed
for side-loading garages – another wish list
