If you’re building a home in a conservation district, you have to cleverly combine classic style with current amenities. Our Inwood House of the Week is a Vickery Place modern Tudor at 5528 Vickery Boulevard by LeComte Homes, and it’s an excellent example of how builders are getting it right.
Vickery Place is a wonderful neighborhood of original Tudor, Craftsman, prairie, colonial revival, Mediterranean, and post-war style homes. In other words, there is something for everyone in Vickery Place. And if you’re a buyer with a love of the old but a need for the new, LeComte Homes understands. They have found a niche in providing time-honored architectural styles without the stress of renovation.
“LeComte has been in business for 15 years,” sales and marketing director Anthony Mignon said. “We have a lot of experience in conservation districts, and all of our homes follow green building principles. We understand the requirement of the district and we are still able to provide buyers with cutting-edge design.”
“LeComte Homes have a nice fresh look to their product,” Allie Beth Allman listing agent Holly Thompson said. “Their construction has that great feel that works well in this area. When I take buyers out, I think it’s important to look at the resale product like this home. It has all the advantages of being brand new, but there is so much more being offered. A home that is only a few years old often has a higher degree of finish-out that has been done a previous owner. For instance, in this home window treatments have been installed, and a pool has been built. That saves a new buyer a lot of money.”
One of the many benefits of the old-world look and new-world construction is size. This home was built in 2014 and has 3,529 square feet, four bedrooms, and three bathrooms. Those numbers are hard to match in the best of renovations.
Thompson has this Vickery Place modern Tudor listed for $949,500. It’s really the best of both worlds!
