Homes with a classic style are always in demand. The problem with older homes, though, is that they lack so many of the amenities people desire today – large walk-in closets, ample sized family rooms, not to mention luxury bathrooms with dual sinks, soaker tubs and steam showers. Gutting and expanding these early 20th century homes are costly and precarious adventures. Besides, how does one retain the original ambience of the home during the modernization process without compromising it’s style?
Whitestone Builders has come up with the solution: build new in an established community like the Heights, Garden Oaks or other inner loop neighborhood; but make the new blend with the classic style of the older turn of the century homes.
One look at their website and you see the attention to detail Whitestone Builders put in each home they build. The breathtaking curved balconies, stately wrought iron surround on columned front porches, the use of stained glass and gas lamps all bring back an old world, Southern charm. Look further and notice the custom cabinetry, luxurious baths, recessed lighting and state of the art kitchens; Each feature exemplifies the unique craftsmanship found in a Whitestone home.
“If you can imagine a home that encompasses your individuality, your dreams and your history, you have imagined a Whitestone home.”
That is what it says on their home page, and a quick browse through the samples of what these Houston builders have produced so far proves this statement rings true.
