There are tons of comparisons to consider when shopping for a new home in Birmingham. Price points, size differences, upgrades and location specifications all combine to help you determine exactly what home you want. However, sometimes there aren’t any options currently available in the market that meet those specific set of needs and wants for your new home. That’s why when Fran Lucas learned about J. Wright Building Company and experienced first-hand the quality homes we build, she knew building a custom home in Birmingham was the way to go, and we were the builder who could bring her dreams to life.
One of the hardest parts about the new construction process is trying to visualize your new home all from paper. The second hardest part is staying on budget. However, when working with J. Wright, you know you’re working with a builder who puts you, the customer, first, while also working to ensure your expectations are met, your budget is adhered to and your dream because real life.
“Jeremy did a fantastic job of listening to what I wanted and staying within budget!” stated Fran. “He has a unique talent for understanding what a client wants, even though we don’t always express our desires in typical builder terms, and turning a specific vision into reality.”
When driving up to the home, the exterior is bright and stunning with a mix of materials. The base of the home is wrapped in white brick all the way around, while the front of the home is all brick. The farmhouse-style design also incorporates white board and batten siding on in several areas, while accents of natural stained wood peek out from under the tin porch roof and front window overhang. The wood accents also continue on the shutters and the glass French front doors.
The home makes a stunning first impression upon entering, too, with high ceilings, hardwood flooring and an abundance of natural light in the foyer. Located on the right is an elegant dining room with more even more natural light, as well as recessed lighting and a unique chandelier. Connecting the dining room to the open kitchen is an incredible butler’s pantry, one of the many truly custom features found in this home. Thanks to a life spent in the cooking industry and a love for the art, a large pantry with plenty of storage and prep space was a necessity. This glam area features custom black nearly floor-to-ceiling cabinetry with crystal fixtures, a fun chandelier, built-in wine refrigerator, sink, under-cabinet lighting and plenty of counter and storage space. Fran’s stunning kitchen is complete with bright, white cabinets, a shiny white subway tile backsplash, top-of-the-line Wolf and KitchenAid appliances and an island with plenty of storage. Located adjacent to the kitchen is a quaint breakfast area.
Connecting all of these first floor spacious is an open family room with a beautiful, oversized white brick fireplace. The family room also offers access to the outdoor living area, a beautiful space with a whitewashed brick fireplace and raw wood mantle capped off by a tongue-and-groove wood ceiling. The fireplace also features pre-built connections for the tv, making it a breeze to entertain and enjoy the great outdoors. The covered area opens to additional patio space, perfect for additional seating or adding an outdoor dining space, while the expansive yard offers plenty of opportunity for play.
Located on the other side of the home is the master suite, a beautiful space made for relaxation. The bedroom features gray walls, bright white trim, wood flooring and plenty of natural light. Double doors open to the master bath, another incredible space in this home. The white and gray space features white marble flooring, double vanities with gray cabinetry and dark granite countertops, a glass-enclosed shower and a freestanding tub capped off by box moulding and three picture windows. The customization continues in the bathroom, with a portion of one vanity dedicated to getting ready, complete with space for sitting, extra storage and a window for natural light.
Attached to the home is an expansive three-car garage with more truly custom spaces. An at-home hair salon with a professional salon sink is incorporated into the design, while a second story above the garage is a full mother-in-law suite. Delightful, private and cozy, this hideaway packs a stylish and completely functional punch. Accessed via an elevator, the space has hardwood flooring throughout, a living area with access to a private balcony that overlooks the backyard, and a kitchen complete with dark cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The living quarters are complete with an oversized bedroom and spacious bathroom with a zero-entry shower.
