We can’t wait to show you the finished product!
Construction is wrapping up on our Lynchburg Living Idea House, a Colonial-style home located on Clayton Avenue off Rivermont Avenue.
With three dormer windows, slate-like shingles and other traditional elements, this three-bedroom, 2400-square-foot home will fit in perfectly with its neighbors. “Because the neighborhood is 80 years old, we wanted to design something that complemented the area,” said Scott Elliott, owner of Custom Structures. “But while the outside is traditional, the inside of the house is extremely modern in technology.”
They are installing the latest, high-tech appliances, including a kitchen range with a touch screen computer/monitor overhead. From there, the homeowner can look up recipes, FaceTime a friend—you name it—without stepping away from the stove. “This entire house will be ‘smart,’ from the light fixtures to the security cameras,” Scott says.
He’s also excited about a see-through gas fireplace that can be enjoyed from the great room or the outside patio. The design of the home’s kitchen is also forward thinking—with matte white appliances, brass fixtures and blue cabinetry. “The kitchen is going to look so, so good,” Scott says. “While we definitely wanted to keep the exterior traditional, we wanted to do some eclectic things with the interior. I think it’s going to be a great blend of traditional and modern.”
