Here at Herring Homes, we offer two types of homes, ReadyCrafted and CustomCrafted. Our ReadyCrafted homes are beautiful, affordable, thoughtfully designed townhomes and single-family homes that feature floorplans uniquely built for today’s living. Our CustomCrafted homes are one-of-a-kind designs that are as unique as the families who purchase them. These luxury homes offer spacious floor plans, brick and stone exteriors, upgraded trim packages, gourmet kitchens, and luxurious bathrooms. From paint colors and floor plan options to light fixtures and doorknobs, no detail is overlooked. These homes start in the $900s and are located in some of the most prestigious new home communities in Raleigh and Wake Forest such as Falls Reserve, Sanctuary at Yates Mill, Montreaux, and Camberly. We also build CustomCrafted homes on home sites located in and around the Triangle including Raleigh’s sought-after North Hills area.
We recently completed a custom, luxury home on Shelley Road in Raleigh, North Carolina. This CustomCrafted design is 4,379 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. To create this unique plan, our design team partnered with a well-known home designer, Tony Frazier of Frazier Home Designs. When designing the home, we consider the dreams and desires of our clients and other details like the home site size and direction of the sun.
This home certainly catches peoples' attention as they pass it on the street. Starting with the exterior, one of the first things people notice is the dramatic roofline and the Chesapeake Pearl brick with mahogany accents. As you move inside the house, you are greeted by a grand staircase, a two-story foyer, and tons of natural light due to all the windows. With a vision of having an open concept living, the kitchen, living, and dining room flow beautifully and continue onto the generous covered porch with a beautiful stone fireplace.
Throughout the home, there are abundant windows and most of the rooms are painted in Benjamin Moore White Dove. This allows for bright open living space and sets the stage for the dramatic dining room. The dining room was painted in Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal on the walls, trim, and ceiling. With a beautiful chandelier, custom ceiling, and a wall of windows, the dining room is a perfect example using darker wall colors to make a striking impact and make it beautiful.
Another design element that was important was to create storage wherever possible. From a custom-designed built-in bookshelf and desk at the landing at the top of the stairs to storage under window seats to a custom mudroom drop zone, extra storage is found around every corner.
Other special touches carried through this home are the beautiful blue accents seen in the kitchen and powder bath, a shiplap accented fireplace in the living room, black window frames, and a private bedroom suite over the garage. All the details and design decisions make this CustomCrafted home as unique as the family who owns it.
