Queen Elizabeth II, of the British House of Windsor, has been on the throne since 1952 and continues to embody timeless elegance. Castle Brook custom home builders captures a similar grace and sophistication in its Windsor Collection of customizable home designs. These stylish homes have a refined, contemporary look, beginning with the two-story open entry featuring a statement grand circle staircase.
This blog article is part of Castle Brook Builders' Design and Build Process Series.
On the main floor, spend quality time with your loved ones in the large family room, with cozy carpet and a linear stone fireplace, or enjoy the outdoors on the covered walk-out deck. Separate eat-in dinette areas and a formal dining room provide the flexibility you need to entertain in your custom home year round.
Throughout the open-plan main level, you’ll see elegant wood flooring and birch cabinetry, granite or quartz countertops, 9’ ceilings, stainless appliances, and classic hardware. The gourmet chef’s kitchen comes standard with double ovens, a gas cooktop with hood, built-in microwave and dishwasher, and roomy walk-in pantry with built-in shelving. Recessed can lighting ensures a bright ambiance, and pendant lights over the island provide a warm, intimate glow.
Off the kitchen, pocket doors lead to a home office, allowing you privacy, convenience, and work-life separation. A tile-floored mudroom connects the kitchen and three-car garage, providing a “drop zone” for sporting equipment, muddy boots, and wet jackets and a separate laundry room. Built-in custom lockers keep everything tidy and in its place so that seasonal messes stay in the great outdoors rather than inside your home.
Down another sweeping circle staircase, the home’s lower level features a finished basement with wet bar, theatre room, living space, and full bathroom. Overall, the standard Windsor Collection designs comprise 2,952 square feet of living space on two above-ground floors, plus an additional 1,295 of space in the finished basement. In total, these grand homes afford 4,247 square feet of luxury living space for your family.
Berkeley homes boast five spacious bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, including a master suite with ceramic-tiled, oversize Whirlpool soaking tub and walk-in shower. Its furniture-quality double vanity has custom birch cabinetry, premium fixtures, and granite/quartz countertops. The impressive master walk-in closet comes with customized built-in organization systems to help you keep your wardrobe organized and accessible.
Outside, Windsor Collection homes are roofed with 20-year heritage shingles and sport a natural looking stone-and-siding exterior. Castle Brook is proud to use top-rated energy efficient appliances and building materials, including R-19 insulation in the exterior walls and R-50 in the attic, high quality Anderson clad windows, and high-efficiency central air, furnace, and power humidifier. In addition to saving energy and money on your home heating and cooling, these features keep your home comfortable all year round. Each home is also pre-treated for termites and comes with full sod landscape, installed sprinklers, and security systems.
