Building Character Into Your Custom Home

Unique Custom Home Features - Outdoor Living

Home to spectacular natural vistas, a mild high desert climate, unlimited outdoor activities and a friendly population of 43,000, Prescott, AZ is the ideal location for a primary residence or second vacation home. To take full advantage of the available land sites, you will want a custom home builder with extensive experience in the Prescott real estate market as well as a superior reputation for custom home construction.

A custom home can mean different things to different people, but almost everyone will agree on one point. A custom home is designed and built to appeal to the family that will live in it. This is a home where the owner has control over how it is sited, the layout, the materials used, and every detail that will enhance his/her residential experience. It’s also agreed that it is a rare owner who can take on all the design elements without help from a custom home professional builder.

Making Your Custom Home Uniquely Yours

The key to designing and building a custom home that gives the owner the character and sense of perfection they are looking for is finding an experienced builder who specializes in listening. A builder who has experience with a variety of styles and local materials but who does not have a preconceived idea of how the home should be constructed. You want a builder who has your best interest front of mind and who can translate your dreams into reality and keep you on budget at the same time.

That said, given Prescott’s exceptional natural beauty, there are some custom home features you will want to consider including:

  • Integrating the Outside Inside. In Prescott, no matter where you look, you will be greeted with an amazing vista that no wall hanging or art piece can rival. You will want to pay careful attention to the strategic use of windows and window walls that allow the outside to become part of your interior design. The same goes for interior accent materials like local woods and stone.
  • Planning for Outdoor Living. A mild climate means plenty of opportunities for outdoor living. Consider an outdoor kitchen, dining and entertaining space. A firepit makes for an excellent conversation center. Include a sustainable landscaping plan that incorporates plants native to the area.
  • Green Construction Technology. Take advantage of the new green technologies to reduce energy costs and support the environment using solar heating, spray foam and super-insulation, rainwater catchment, grey water systems, and other sustainable systems and materials.
  • Inclusion of Your Dreams. This is the opportunity to build what you always wanted. A serious wine cellar and tasting room, secret safe room (speakeasy style), or installation of an elevator for a multi-storied home are all examples of unique features that have been included in Prescott custom homes. Your project is limited only by your imagination and budget.
