At Cypress Homes, we love building custom homes, designed specifically for the family who will be living there. This Custom Cottonwood is a perfect example of that. Our customers worked with our interior designer to design and build a home that perfectly suits their family's needs and style preferences. Even the lot location, in the desirable Savannah Heights subdivision, was hand-picked by the customers.
The exterior of this home provides great curb appeal by combining natural slate colored siding & shakes with cultured stone. In addition, the exterior showcases charcoal shingles, white garage doors (with straps and handles), stained cedar columns, and matching stained gable brackets
The lay of this lot in the Savannah Heights subdivision also provides some lower level exposure for daylight windows. Also, the back of the home provides great views of the retention pond.
Open Concept Kitchen
The Cottonwood is a 1.5 story plan that features an open concept layout throughout the kitchen, dining room, and great room. The homeowners finished this space with stained hickory cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops. The Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring and white subway tile backsplash compliment the cabinet and counter top colors.
This plan provides a mini beverage bar off the dining area that sits directly between the walk-in pantry and open rail staircase. This space utilizes the same cabinets, counters, and backsplash as the kitchen. On the opposite side of the dining area you'll find an 8 ft sliding door leading you out to the finished deck.
The great room is undoubtedly the most impressive space in the Cottonwood plan. The customers took full advantage of the 18 ft ceilings by finishing it with an immaculate floor to ceiling stone fireplace, a large ceiling fan, and plenty of windows providing great views and natural light.
The master bathroom showcases a custom vanity with a quartz countertop and black hex tile flooring. The back wall is finished with smooth white shiplap around the transom window. In addition it's decorated with sconces and custom oval mirrors. The subway tile shower has a transom window of its own.
The master closet is completely finished with a white melamine wood organization system while the bedroom provides views of the backyard.
The customers decided to finish the majority of the basement. This included a bedroom, a bathroom, and a rec room with a built in bar. The paint used in the rec room is the same light grey color that was used on walls and ceilings throughout the majority of the home.
There are 3 bedrooms and a full bathroom on the 2nd floor of the cottonwood plan. The homeowners used the same grey carpet in all 3 of the upper bedrooms. These bedrooms bring in just the right amount of natural light and provide good sized closets.
