Clean Lines & Lots of Light: Contemporary Custom Home in North Appleton

May 4, 2021
Published by

There are a lot of new homes in Appleton, WI, but none quite like this custom-built home that Cypress Homes recently completed in Emerald Valley Estates subdivision. This beautiful, new home perfectly captures the contemporary style and open-concept feel that the homeowner was looking to achieve.

The custom floor plan was developed to incorporate clean lines, luxurious simplicity and tons of natural light.

 It boasts 3 large patio doors off the great room and kitchen areas, flooding the first floor with natural light and giving the ability to create a wonderful indoor/outdoor space.

 The home also includes plenty of open railing and oversized windows to create an open and bright space throughout the home.


The kitchen layout has the sink situated along the back wall of the home with a large bank of windows above it. 

This creates  a nice view while using the sink and allows for a large, unobstructed island with plenty of seating. 

This was the 2nd time this homeowner built with Cypress Homes and moving the sink out of the island was one thing she changed from the first build.

The custom cabinets are painted a warm gray color with white quartz countertops and golden champagne drawer pulls that create a simple, yet elegant look.


All three bathrooms continue the bright and contemporary theme of the custom home. Each space uses light colors  and hard surface counters with single hole faucets to create a beautifully simplistic design.

The master bathroom includes a large dual vanity with quartz countertops. 

The large tile shower in the master bathroom includes a separate hand shower in addition to the regular shower head.

The main bath is bright and open, but gives a pop of color with the navy blue vanity and custom framed mirror to match. 

The first floor powder room adds some interest with a contemporary light fixture.

other AREAS:

Throughout the home there are so many other unique and stunning features to share. 

The welcoming front foyer brings in more natural light with the contemporary 3-lite door and transom above. 

The small office near the foyer features another contemporary light fixture.

A locker area is tucked just out of sight from the kitchen, near the garage entry. Even the often closed off mud room area seems more open in this custom floor plan.

The great room fireplace continues the clean lines trend with floor-to-ceiling shiplap and a linear fireplace unit.

The Exterior:

The front of this home continues the simplistic trends seen throughout the home, however simple doesn't mean boring.

Using a combination of vertical and horizontal siding gives the home a unique appearance. The black garage door, front door and roof give a nice contast to the gray and white facade.

Large cedar posts on the front porch bring a touch of natural material to this amazing custom home.

Cypress Homes is an award-winning custom home builder in Appleton, WI.  Whether you are looking to build a truly one-of-a-kind custom home or a home based on one of the many home designs, Cypress can build you a beautiful new home in whatever style you envision.
