Few homes excite us more than a new build that knocks it out of the park. This one by CandysDirt.com Approved Builder Patten Custom Homes does just that. Not only is it outfitted with a bevy of custom touches, but according to the listing, it “goes above and beyond your average new build, starting with the floorplan.” And we couldn’t agree more.

Situated on a generous corner lot in sought-after Lakewood, the four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bathroom home combines Modern Farmhouse styling with the sophistication of a trained eye. Something that is quite obvious the minute you step inside. 

We think it’s beyond what you typically see in a new build for sale,” says Natalie Patten, designer-builder and integral part of the Patten Custom Homes magic. “It’s very much a house of little details and a lot of thought, starting with the floorplan.”

Those who got the chance to attend our event at the Wolf/Sub-Zero showroom last month will remember Matt Mitchell of James Andrews Custom Homes. The panel discussion, which was moderated by our founder and publisher Candy Evans, centered on innovation in the building industry and how technology was changing the face of the custom home. 

No one was more fascinating than Mitchell, who turned the idea of how a home is built in the Dallas area on its head, introducing the concept of Structurally Insulated Panel (SIP) construction to many luxury real estate agents. It was eye-opening, and definitely speaks to the spirit of innovation that the Dallas Builders Association fosters in its members.

With 15 years in custom homebuilding, Mitchell brings a wonderful amount of experience to the market, and we’re happy to give our readers an inside look into what makes James Andrews Custom Homes a wonderful choice for custom home clients in this week’s Dallas Builders Association Member Spotlight.
