Suncrest Homes wins 2012 Housing Excellence Award for Best Single-Family Home of the Year

Suncrest Homes was recognized for its ability to build exceptional custom homes by winning the 2012 Housing Excellence Award for the Best Single-Family Home of the Year $651,000-$850,000. The look and finishes of the winning home recall traditional and Craftsman influences. The exterior has abundant Craftsman details: decorative shakes, stone accents, flared wing-walls and many large and distinctive windows. The entrance is flanked by wood and stone columns (left) that lead to a Craftsman-style front entry door.

Family room Once inside, you will immediately feel the home’s warm ambiance. A unique staircase (left) with oak railings and newel posts and wrought iron balusters leads to an expansive second floor. Custom columns off the foyer flank the open entrance to the dining room (left). The two-story family room has a stone fireplace and french doors that look out to an outdoor living space.

With broad expanses of glass, the first-floor study in the front of the home provides a bright and inviting work space. The custom kitchen (left) blends dark cherry and soft white cabinetry with a stone peninsula, designed by the owner, that echoes the home’s stone exterior.

Outside space The first-floor ensuite master bedroom is spacious with luxurious features. The ensuite stone-tiled bathroom has rich, dark cabinetry, an inviting whirlpool tub with an arch window and a spacious custom glass-enclosed shower. The environment is spa-like and relaxing.

Outside there is a screened porch with adjoining pergola, beautiful landscaping and hard scaping with a water feature and fire pit. The outside spaces have a stunning view and provide a comfortable and wonderful place to relax, socialize and enjoy the outdoors.
