Project brings an architectural fusion of the New England vernacular with Southern coastal style.
The greatest compliment for a homebuilder is to gain a new project on the strength of a personal referral by previous clients. For a local family who selected JacksonBuilt Custom Homes to create their dream home in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Hibben, a friend’s recommendation made the choice clear. “Every client referral is priceless to us,” says JacksonBuilt President Richard Jackson. “Each day, we work to make these opportunities happen.” The project is even more meaningful as it is the first build for the company in Hibben.
The architectural details of the house speak to the New England coastal influences the homeowners enjoyed so much in their childhoods. Substantial detailing on the columned porch and articulated window trimwork lend a traditional flavor to the front of the home. A double-length eyebrow roof accents the garage that shares the entry, which is all united by a curved tabby drive.
The interior design of the home maintains a coastal feel, but one with a bit more Southern flair. Matte white oak floors are used throughout the project to bring a lightness to the interior. “The floors are, by far, my favorite part of the house,” says the homeowner. Large, open rooms are painted in a palette of white, greys, and blues to encourage continuity throughout the interior. Board-and-batten trimwork makes a casual statement in the dining room and two-story stairway wall, and a vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom shows how simple, clean lines can still provide drama.
“When I look back at our various projects over the years, I see much more than just the finished home,” says Jackson. “Each home is a product of the relationships we created during the build. Because of that, client referrals mean that much more to me, and I am so thankful to be entrusted with that responsibility.”
