What Are Today’s Hot Design Trends?

When potential home buyers visit Peachtree Residential’s model homes, they’re often blown away by the stunning details and hot design trends that make the homes stand out from others they’ve visited. These details are carefully orchestrated by our professional design team, who follow the most up-to-date trends and also have a real-world understanding of what people actually want and use in their homes.

Kelly Hickman, a Peachtree Residential Design Expert in Charlotte, has worked on many model homes, including the new model in McLean. She also has helped many homebuyers make their personal selections in the Peachtree Residential Design Center.

When asked about current  and hot design trends, Hickman notes that today’s homes integrate the traditional look of an old-fashioned farmhouse with the clean lines and open floorplans that have become popular more recently. For example, traditional light or raw wood floors that evoke the feeling of an old homeplace may appear alongside contemporary tiles that cut clean lines and complement the home’s modern-day components.

New Model Home Opens in McLean Community

As the builder who listens, Peachtree Residential never stops making things better, even for pets. We recently updated one of our most popular plans, the Milton, and built it as the new model home for the McLean community located on the shores of Lake Wylie in Gaston, Belmont County.

In its new configuration, guests enter the Milton from a generous front porch into the stunning two-story foyer featuring a small niche or statement wall, depending on the buyer’s preference. The stairs, which previously dominated the entryway, have been reversed. They now offer families a convenient, hidden retreat from the open family room to the upstairs bedrooms and living areas.

A favorite update is the addition of a barn door under the stairway, creating a built-in, hidden escape for four-legged friends. The special space for pets eliminates the need for not-so-stylish kennels or sometimes-smelly, fur-covered pet beds in main living areas. (more…)

Why Are We The Builder Who Listens?

When you choose to build your new home with Peachtree Residential, you’re choosing to build with a “Builder Who Listens” to what you have to say – your requests, your compliments and, yes, even your concerns. Especially those.

And with any home you build, no matter the builder, there will be at least a few concerns. Did you know that nearly 100 people are involved in building a new home, no matter the price range? And they, along with the tools and materials they are using, are often exposed to weather conditions while they work? Think rain, cold and, in the South, intense heat.

With so many people, all the moving parts, and the range of materials, from concrete foundation to your choice of roofing, one or two concerns are bound to pop up eventually. And when you work with the “Builder Who Listens”, those concerns are addressed quickly and efficiently. (more…)

There’s Nothing Like a Porch to Welcome You Home

Whether you’re looking at North Carolina homes online or you’re driving up to a friend’s house, chances are the ones with front porches feel the most inviting. Perhaps that’s because a front porch is integral to the lore that surrounds old-fashioned communities and the stories our grandparents told.

More likely, it’s because they are just as popular today, even though we’re probably not using them to share a glass of lemonade with a neighbor or wave to passersby.

What do we do instead? Maybe we sit or swing like in the past. Porches also serve as a backdrop as we record memories of first days of school, Halloween costumes, and prom dates. And there is almost guaranteed to come a time when a porch will provide shelter for Amazon packages or delivery people who saved us from driving to pick up pizza in the rain.
