At weddings, brides are supposed to have something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Buyers of new homes can relate to at least part of this old saying. I read a story recently where more buyers are looking for homes featuring older architecture on the exterior but with insides designed for the modern family.
When you think about it, it’s not surprising. Historic homes in cities are often the most beautiful. But we live in a world of cell phones, security systems, tablets and televisions. We want our homes to be wired so we can plug in, charge up and surf the Internet. That’s the problem with many older homes. Internally, they are not built for today. Plus, they have unaccommodating layouts and are far from energy efficient.
More builders are catching on to the wishes of buyers and designing homes that appreciate the past while also making sure families will find the interiors warm, inviting and easy to customize to their lifestyles.
At Keystone Custom Homes, we love the look of historical homes. With their graceful arches, long porches and majestic angles, it’s hard not to stop and just take in every detail. You can see details like these in many of the homes we offer.
Inside a Keystone Custom Home, you will find layouts with the modern family in mind. We design large rooms for families who love to spend time together, whether at dinner or in front of the fireplace. Where many older homes have small, cramped cooking spaces, our kitchens are constructed with plenty of counter space for additional appliances and gadgets. Keystone homes are also bright, vibrant and built to keep down energy costs without sacrificing quality or comfort.
Buying a new home doesn’t have to mean saying goodbye to the past. Embrace the beauty of yesterday with a new home made for today’s family.
