Dreambuilder Custom Homes is thrilled to announce the completion of Dreambuilder Four, a custom home built on a scenic riverfront lot on Doctor’s Lake in Orange Park, FL.
Designed at 3290 square feet, the final product covered 4230 square feet of conditioned space as 940 square feet of bonus area was finished out. The five bedroom, three and one-half bath home includes a three car garage, media room, dramatic staircase and river views from several rooms.
Dreambuilder Custom Home is proud that the owner, Michael Lilly, chose Dreambuilder to construct the home, since he is a builder himself, serving as Jacksonville’s division president for a national production homebuilder. Due to certain constraints, Mr. Lilly was not able to build the home himself, and turned to Dreambuilder to help.
“We hired Dreambuilder Custom Homes to build our new home, a complete custom-designed home with many complex features and construction requirements,” he said. “Shawn managed the job exceptionally well, completed the home ahead of his schedule projection, and finished our home to a very high level of quality, and his attention to the detail during the construction was exactly as I had hoped for.”
The project began as a “tear-down” of the original, small, concrete-block home. The original dock, in disrepair, was demolished and replaced along with a new bulkhead and boathouse. In just six months, from ground-breaking to completion, the home was constructed, bringing new life to the well-established neighborhood. The covered porch, pool, spa and pavered walkways complete the integration of indoor/outdoor living space — all with an eye to the river.
Hardwood floors, custom cabinetry, commercial grade appliances and a wrought-iron staircase are just a few of the many amenities in the home. Many features and details had to be intricately managed to ensure quality while maintaining budget and the construction schedule.
Best of all, Dreambuilder has earned its nickname as “the builder’s builder” due to the satisfaction expressed by Mr. Lilly. “Overall we are very happy with our home, and would highly recommend Dreambuilder Custom Homes,” he said. “Thanks, Shawn!”
