Delivering a classic touch in new home architecture that harkens to the late-nineteenth century, Darling Homes brings Southern charm to Houston with all-new exteriors.
Painted brick exteriors are unique to new home construction. Until recently, painted brick lent its sophisticated look to prestigious and historic areas of Texas, including Houston Heights and River Oaks in Houston and Highland Park in Dallas.
Exuding grace and elegance, this all-new exterior brings an added level of value and appeal to not only the home, but the community’s streetscape.
“We love the idea of our buyers being able to choose the painted look for their homes,” said Lee Crowder, Darling Homes design gallery and model branding manager. “It not only creates a special and unique look for them, but it makes our Darling streetscape even more beautiful.”
In addition to the stylistic element these exteriors bring, painted brick allows homebuyers to mask color inconsistencies on their home due to the natural hues and variations of brick.
“For those seeking a monochromic appeal that is sleek and simple, this look is ideal,” Crowder said. “It also allows ours buyers to have a very light color palette, which is popular these days and not easy to replicate with a face brick. I love the ability to use a lighter paint color on the brick that’s contrasted with a deep shutter color to create a beautiful, balanced look.”
Darling Homes will offer painted brick for its traditional elevations with opportunities to choose from a collection of Traditional, American Classic and Southern color palettes.
To see Darling Homes’ painted brick exterior in action, visit the all-new model home at Stillwater in Conroe. Darling Homes’ luxury collection at Stillwater is the ideal complement to painted brick with home designs reminiscent of architecture seen in South Carolina and Georgia.
From the gabled and hip rooftops to the inviting front porches, these homes boast period-specific details and Lowcountry designs, creating the picturesque vision of Southern-style living.
The series at Stillwater includes four floor plan options that range from approximately 4,200 square feet to 5,300 square feet. Homes feature unfolding floor plans with up to five bedrooms and bathrooms, a home office, formal dining room, downstairs media room, hearth room, gourmet kitchen that connects to the breakfast room and opens to the family room, relaxing master bedroom suite and private interior courtyard.
“Painted brick allows us to differentiate certain architectural styles and create a more unique streetscape,” Crowder said. “We weren’t sure how our buyers would react to the new style, but we quickly found they love this way of making their home look unique and historically appropriate.”
