Happy family in pool of a Weston Dean Custom HomeA few weeks ago, we discussed three of our popular and revered custom design styles: The Spanish Revival, The European Style, and The Hill Country Contemporary Style.  Each of these carry with them our guarantee of high quality materials, construction, and most importantly, attention to every detail you can imagine.  Our goal, after all, is to provide you with the home of your dreams, and we at Weston Dean Custom Homes are excited to work with you each step of the way to ensure your complete satisfaction.

Today we’d like to continue our discussion of our Vision Views, otherwise known as our tried-and-true architectural designs and floor plan options.  These include our Traditional Style, our Texas Country Style, and last (but certainly not least!), our Custom Features.

Traditional Style
Our focus here is to emulate everything that makes a home great and livable in the modern age without losing any part of what makes a traditional home so beautiful.  With today’s emphasis on minimalism, slick surfaces, and high-tech visibly integrated into every single aspect of your life and creeping into today’s architecture, we understand that much of the rich, original aesthetic of home living has disappeared over the years.  We seek to bring that back, surrounding you with comfort and splendor in your custom home.  Even better, we can preserve that while giving you every modern technological advancement you might want without it feeling or looking out of place.

Many of the features utilized in our traditional style custom home include:
-Clean lines and masses
-Metal or otherwise flat rooftops
-Full plate, extra large glass windows
-Stucco or horizontal wood siding

Texas Country Style
In a similar vein of our Hill Contemporary Country Style, this vision view is incredibly popular in our San Antonio custom home communities.  Imbued with and exhibiting sophistication, this home design uses the influence of local and regional materials to achieve an unparalleled elegance.  Many of these feature stonework that is more blended in nature, containing what’s known as “luders and tans” rather than white limestone often chosen in previous years by other home builders.  This architectural style, in our humble opinion, is a gem wholly representative of what we love most about Texas.

You are likely to find several of these design choices in a Texas Country home:
-Low pitch roofs, made of metal or composition
-Rustic feel to more contemporary
-Country wood and stone interiors
-Stone exteriors

Custom Features
If you can’t decide between these (believe us, we understand!), we might suggest another option entirely: Custom Home Features.  You have your own special preferences and style, and we’re more than happy to accommodate you!  After all, your home is yours, and should reflect what you like and hold dear.  Many custom home owners start by considering options for their kitchens, bathrooms, energy efficiency, outdoor living and more.  There are no limitations here!

We hope that this has been helpful!  If you have any further questions about Weston Dean as a company, our custom home building process, or would simply like to get started on a brand new home, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Talk to most anyone in the custom home building industry and you’ll find that most builders chose to build custom homes because of the heightened opportunity  in utilizing creativity in designing of dream homes for their buyers.  Weston Dean Custom Homes specializes in 5 specific styles as well as leaving virtually every option open for what you envision as part of your brand new home.  Each of these Vision Views as we call them, are available to every Weston Dean home buyer with fully customizable features across styles.  It’s our business to ensure that the amenities you have your heart set on become part of your daily life, one at a time. Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier Boerne custom home builder, shares what their Vision Views are for their design style.

Spanish Revival Style
This particular design and architectural style is incredibly popular in San Antonio, and every single building trend comes back to the strength of this enduring appeal.  Specific features consistently present in this include a home exterior made up of stone or stucco look and accents, frequently accompanied by what’s known as a red barrel tile roof prevalent in many characteristically Santa Barbara, Mediterranean, and Tuscan homes.  While the nuances between each are heavily detailed, but a fair number of these designs are reliant upon whatever it is that you, as a soon-to-be custom home owner prefer!  A few design choices you can decide between include:

  • Recessed windows
  • Interior, ornate tiles, wood work, and wrought iron
  • Visible, stylized beams
  • Arches

European Style
It’s no secret that America has been heavily influenced by Europe, and that naturally includes our architectural vision.  Traditionally European-influenced custom homes often carry with it homages to or inspiration from the varied Renaissance styles in Europe’s own rich history.  Features characteristic of Weston Dean Custom Homes’ European Style construction involve:

  • Rustic elegance
  • Composition, metal, slate, or flat tile roofs, otherwise very high pitched roofs
  • Divided lite windows
  • Hinged French doors to balconies and patios
  • Masonry exteriors
  • Board and batten shutters

Hill Country Contemporary Style
What is “Hill Country Contemporary” architecture?  This particular design is wholly inspired by Texas landscapes and our love for this state, incorporating modern, contemporary sophistication with rustic appeal, finding an unparalleled balance.  Weston Dean has perfected this style, finding the finest of local  materials and utilizing regional influence.  This not only backed by our high standard of excellence with every single home, but ensures that each one is environmentally friendly and complements the natural scenery.  In a Hill Country Contemporary Style home, you’ll find:

  • Home accents of stone, rammed earth, and stucco
  • Heavy emphasis on regional materials
  • Low pitch metal roofs
  • Beams

Next week we’ll go into detail about our other featured Vision Views.  We invite you to look more in depth at what we have to offer by downloading any of our PDFs for additional specifics.  And as always, contact us for any questions you may have or to get started on your very own San Antonio dream home today!
