DEMOLITION! Starr Custom Homes prepares for DreamDesign 33

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

This past week Starr Custom Homes had the exciting opportunity to demolish an existing home as we continue planning for a new home.

The Tilak family bought this beautiful riverfront lot in Beauclerc a few years ago.  The nearly 50-year old home on the property wasn’t worth saving, and we’ve been working with the Tilaks on DreamDesign 33, a 5400 SF custom home to be built on the property.

Within five days we had all evidence of the home, pool, septic systems and landscaping removed, returning the lot to ‘vacant’ status and making it ready for the new home we’re planning for.

Stay tuned for more information on DreamDesign 33!

Starr Custom Homes announces DreamDesign 30 in Jacksonville Beach

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

farah-renderingStarr Custom Homes is happy to announce the commencement of DreamDesign 30, a modern home in Jacksonville Beach.

The 2100 SF home features an open floor plan on the first floor, with great room, dining area, kitchen and lanai creating one large entertainment space.  Though smaller than the typical homes we build, the design still provides architectural drama with a two-story great room and foyer divided by a second-floor bridge.

The vaulted ceilings continue on the second floor where two of three bedrooms feature vaulted ceilings.  The master suite will also boast a sliding barn door to the adjacent bath.  Modern finishes will abound, including glossy acrylic cabinets, low profile mouldings and stained concrete floors.

You can view the floor plans, designed by our partners at Pyramid Custom Home Designs, in our Dream Home Gallery.  Stayed tuned for more in-progress pictures on our Facebook page as we continue to bring DreamDesign 30 to life!
