University Place Home
This Traditional home was a Stone Acorn design/build for the 2014 Southern Living “Home for the Holidays” Showcase in West University Place.
The home is a celebration of family. Designed by JKM Designs, Stone Acorn Builders’ in-house architect, the 4,341 square foot open floor plan includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, an eat-in chef’s kitchen, game room, study, butler’s pantry, outdoor fireplace, summer kitchen and screened in porch. We used Marvin windows and doors throughout. Marvin Ultimate casements, Marvin Ultimate French Push Out casements, and Marvin Bi-Fold doors. The Cascade Blue windows were the inspiration for the façade of the house: it helped drive the stone selection, the shingle color selection. Inside, the window stain was integrated with the stain of the hardwood flooring. Bi-Fold doors, not typically used in traditional homes, were real game changers in opening this traditional home to easy family access to the outdoor fireplace, summer kitchen and porch area. People love the use of light and pattern and how it complements the flow of the house. Even the softly arching windows in the kitchen were not only utilitarian but beautiful. Our Marvin rep was super helpful and knowledgeable with suggestions for us.
