Great Laurel at Grapevine Gap

The Great Laurel is a custom home that was designed to meet a specific set of criteria but without any particular family in mind. We developed this unique house plan for a general contractor in the North Carolina High Country who was looking for a home design that would fit a lot he had set aside for a premium spec house. We worked closely with the contractor to come up with a home that would showcase his best talents as a builder. The resulting luxury home plans portray 4500 square feet of awe-inspiring space, including three gracious bedrooms, four and a half baths, cathedral ceilings, a custom kitchen, and a central stone hearth with four fireplace openings on three levels of living space. 2100 square feet of additional outdoor living space are provided by the house’s multi-tiered sprawling porches and decks. The circular great room offers access to expansive views of breathtaking mountain panoramas in a way that’s sure to be unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Of course, we love to design homes with specific clients in mind but this spec house was a joy to work on since the builder who commissioned its design shares so much of our love for spaces that elevate the homeowners’ experience of “home” as much as they meet a user’s critical needs. We consider ourselves exceptionally lucky to be in contact with a number of contractors in our area who do excellent work and regard their customers with as much respect as we do. We are always happy to recommend craftsmen and builders to all of our custom home clients.
