How To Look For Detailing In New Carmel Homes

How To Look For Detailing In New Carmel Homes

When you’re looking for a new home it can be difficult to describe what exactly makes a home feel just right.  What makes a home have that illusive charm?  You may be surprised to hear that it’s not the house’s five bedrooms, extra storage, or square footage.  In fact, it is the detailing of a home that gives you that special feeling.


When we speak of details we are not talking about the color of pillows on the couch, but rather the details in the physical build of a house.  Details often go unnoticed from afar, but they have a big impact on how you experience life daily.  These details provide solutions for personalization and functionality.


At Inglenook, details are our specialty.  From the smaller details, like space-saving pocket doors, to the larger details like built-in bookshelves on stairwell landings, the details in each home have been thoughtfully planned.  Note the built-in lattice work that subtly divides the living room from the kitchen and the kitchen from dining nook.  Or admire the paneled ceiling in the living space that reflects the light and adds beauty to the room.  Then there’s the not-so-obvious detailing, like the placement of the windows to provide privacy from neighbors and amplify the natural light that pours in or the height of the porch railing – perfectly measured to place a cup of coffee. These are just a few of the many details homeowners take advantage of at Inglenook.  Next time you walk through an Inglenook home, keep your eyes open for these details – they’re just another way we set ourselves apart.


Unfortunately, most of the new homes built today lack this level of attention to detail.  In order to keep construction costs down, they push all of the money into enlarging square footage.  The special details that can really build character are left out, and in the end it’s just another big, brick, boxy house.

Whether you decide to buy at Inglenook or not, we challenge you to find a home that is truly well designed.  Find a home that reflects you from the inside out – without the throw pillows.
