From a Dirt Lot to a Home!

Have you ever dreamed of building a custom home?  Our clients, Will & Julie, did and we were along for the journey with them….which had a very happy ending! We started the process in February 2014, beginning with finding the right builder and a suitable lot on which to build their dream home in Vienna.

What was most important to this family was to have a new home in “walkable” downtown Vienna.  We toured several new homes & met with a number of area builders, before proceeding with JDA — who had a lot in a location we liked and offered a price within their budget. This home site sits directly across from a lovely park in Vienna, where their children will be able to head out the front door to play.

Once the floorplan & other details were determined, and the contract was signed, the building began, and the home was framed & ready for a pre-drywall inspection in July.

The buyers worked with JDA to select their finishes.  As planned, huge windows surround 3 sides of the kitchen & great room, where they receive tons of light in this wonderful, open area designed for family gatherings & entertaining.

The wide-plank hardwoods throughout the home are a soft shade of gray, and the master bath is stunning with an over-sized marble shower, carrera marble flooring & a free-standing deep-soaking tub.  Each bedroom is en suite and has spacious walk-in closets.

They selected gorgeous, high-end light fixtures — from ornate, over-sized chandeliers, to contemporary glass sconces & pendant fixtures — through a local Arlington light store — http://www.dominionelectric.com.

This was an exciting adventure for Julie & Will, and what a thrill to see the finished product and the smiles on their faces when they got to go through their new home for the first time!  It’s simply stunning, and we are so happy for this family!!!
