With the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee as its canvas, the latest in home building, cutting-edge technology and stunning interior design was featured in Nashville’s Southern Living Showcase Home earning Castle Homes the prestigious 2012 Southern Living Custom Builder of the Year award.

From an intriguing textured exterior finish on the home to an original covered porch application, hundreds of design ideas inspired visitors for the project. An eight-foot knotty alder door, with seeded glass, opens to a foyer of three groin vaults framed by several arched openings and wrought iron fixtures with mercury glass shades.

“The green certified home is a great representation of the rich-diversity of our custom building experience and design talent. Top Nashville area designers were chosen to work with our award- winning interior design team producing a fresh blend of architectural and interior design excellence,” said Alan Looney, president of Castle Homes. The home features cutting-edge technology with iPad controlled lights, media, security and Lennox HVAC units.

With a warm and inviting Sherwin Williams color palette, Castle Homes’ in-house designers used an impressive Calcutta Gold marble as the kitchen island centerpiece with a farmhouse sink and adjacent new cabinet-style refrigerator/freezer towers.A stunning covered porch doubles the entertaining space, opening to a inviting outdoor patio featuring Belgard Pavers and Sunbrella fabrics.

Next up, the Castle Homes team is under construction on Southern Living Idea House, opening summer 2013 in Nashville.
