With floor-to-ceiling windows, modern finishes and maximum curb appeal, meet our pick for best new build.

Style in a few words: Inviting, warm and awe-inspiring.

The house: This contemporary home is 4,204 square feet with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. There’s an additional 550-square-foot space above the detached two-car garage.

Design: The homeowner saw the importance for a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living with two young boys and a dog in the household. That free flowing area can be seen with the kitchen, family room, outdoor porch and backyard operating as one space. 

Best rooms: The great room transitions to the screened terrace by a roll up screen. The terrace is complete with ceiling heaters by opening the 16-foot multi-slide door that effortlessly brings the outdoors in. The primary bathroom features geometric tile floors and a black marble shower with gold finishes that elevate the space to create a luxury spa-like vibe. 

Bonus: Detached garage with office space above is the perfect space to work remotely, or could double as a private guest cottage with full bathroom and walk-in closet.

Here’s a look inside.
