FRONT_-_EXTERIOR_1-3.jpgCastle Brook custom home builders makes it easy to design and build the perfect home for your family. One of our customizable floor plan collections is the Berkeley Collection. These 2-story model homes have an open floor plan with a cozy, intimate Tuscan feel with warm wood flooring and birch cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless appliances, and classic hardware throughout. With four bedrooms, four baths, and a total of 3,412 square feet of living space, the Berkeley collection has something for everyone in your family. 

This blog article is part of Castle Brook Builders' Design and Build Process Series.


Berkeley homes come standard with 20-year heritage shingles, a natural looking stone-and-siding front exterior, and a full three-car garage. Off the garage, a tile-floored mudroom with a “drop zone” for dirty clothes and equipment (including built-in custom lockers and desk) helps keep your home neat and clean.





FAMILY_ROOM-4.jpgInside, the main floor living space flows easily, with 9’ ceilings and tons of natural light. The main living area features built-in bookcases with accent lighting, a natural stone-faced gas fireplace, ceiling fan, media hookups, and recessed lighting.







Sliding glass doors open from a cozy dinette area off the kitchen onto a spacious wood- and iron-railed deck, which has egress stairs to a full lower patio to allow your family easy access to and from the backyard.  







Berkeley’s gourmet kitchen includes custom birch cabinets, kitchen island, cooktop oven, built-in microwave and dishwasher, hardwood floors, recessed general lighting and pendant island lights, ceramic tile backsplash, and quartz or granite countertops. A pocket door leads to a private home office.





BASEMENT_2.jpgOn the lower-level, the full walkout finished basement sports a well-appointed wet bar, gaming area, living space, and full bathroom. Host poker nights, watch the big game, or let the kids have sleepovers—there's plenty of room for a crowd, with all the amenities easily at had. Custom birch cabinetry, tile backsplash, and granite/quartz countertops make this bar stand apart from its peers. 




MASTER_BATH_1-4.jpgBerkeley homes boast four spacious bedrooms, including a master suite with oversized Whirlpool soaking tub, tile walk-in shower, and double vanity with custom birch cabinetry and granite/quartz countertops.

The closets are unmatched throughout the home, including a large kitchen pantry with shelving and a master bedroom walk-in closet with customized, built-in organization systems.




Energy efficient appliances and building materials, including R-19 insulation in the exterior walls and R-50 in the attic, Anderson clad windows, and high-efficiency central air, furnace, and power humidifier keep your home comfortable all year round. Outside, each home is pre-treated for termites and comes with full sod landscape plus installed sprinkler and security systems.
