New Homes with Historic Flair by Evans Coghill

Categories: Custom Homebuilders | Tags: , , , ,

Like most historic cities, homebuyers in the Charlotte, NC area are often faced with the decision of buying a new home in a newer community or an older home in the more charming historic districts of the city. While many people favor living in a historic neighborhood for the wide assortment of architectural design and quaint streets with large trees, older homes can be more than a new homeowner wants to take on. Older homes often have structural issues and maintenance is almost always to be expected. New communities don’t always offer the same charm, but homeowners confidently know their home is move in ready with new builds. Evans Coghill is offering the best of both worlds with their new homes located in historic areas of Charlotte, including the neighborhoods of Plaza Midwood and Cotswold.


Plaza Midwood, one of Charlotte’s oldest neighborhoods, is conveniently located, with just a short commute uptown. Many small shops and local restaurants are just a short walk or bike ride away. The neighborhood hosts community events, even parades, which makes ideal living for families. These homes are very popular, due to their innovative design and location.


Evans Coghill has also started building new homes in the Cotswold neighborhood. The neighborhood developed in the 1950s to 1960s and is still popular today among Charlotte locals. The Cotswold mall is in within walking distance from the community and it’s location is just a quick drive away from uptown Charlotte.

Evans Coghill also offers custom homes in newer communities as well, for more information about Evans Coghill and their homes and neighborhoods, visit their website or call them at 704-334-6789.

Dalamar Homes in Tennessee

Categories: Custom Homebuilders | Tags: ,


Dalamar Homes began building custom homes in Middle Tennessee in 2006 to fill the need for “livable design”–homes designed and built with an understanding of the occupants’ needs. The company began building one or two custom luxury homes per year and has since grown to include an array of floor plans to suit any lifestyle.

Their Malibu plan features an open floor plan with the master bedroom on the first floor and three bedrooms upstairs along with a bonus room perfect for creating a separate living space for kids or guests. Each bedroom has its own walk-in closet–evidence of the “Dalamar touch.” An optional basement provides even more living space.

The Cocoa includes 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and 2 half baths in 2,400 square feet of living space. A first-floor master bedroom provides separation from the upstairs bedrooms. In addition to two bedrooms, which share a full bath, the second floor features a bonus room, media room, and half bath. The half bathroom upstairs is a thoughtful touch–with the two additional living spaces on the floor, it provides usability for guests as well as a space to alleviate any conflicts between the kids in the morning.

These are only a few examples of the ways Dalamar Homes designs livable spaces. While they have an inventory of floor plans to choose from, the builder distinguishes these plans as “Idea Homes,” opening the possibilities for customers to tweak the plans and make them into something much more custom.

Baessler Homes in Northern Colorado

Categories: Custom Homebuilders | Tags: , , ,


Baessler Homes offers Northern Colorado the unique opportunity to customize homes and build on their own lot without inflating the cost of their home project. Family owned-and-operated since 1968, Baessler Homes has a wealth of experience in new home sales and construction. This experience has earned them an outstanding reputation throughout Loveland, Windsor, Fort Collins, and Greeley.

Despite how easy Baessler makes it to build one of their homes on the home site of your choice, their communities should be equally considered—they’ve actually snapped up some prime real estate on the east side of I-25. Their communities are conveniently close to each city without getting swept into the traffic that’s become unavoidable in recent years. Plus, being just east of I-25 means being far enough away from the foothills to see the snow-capped Rocky Mountains.

Imagine living in a quiet neighborhood where you can watch the sun rise over the mountains from your kitchen window as you drink your morning coffee, but being able to get to downtown Fort Collins or the shops at Centerra in minutes. You’re also on the good side of the highway for dodging south-bound traffic when you need to get to Denver.


Baessler offers two home plan series: The Renaissance, which starts in the low $200s, and the Frontier, which starts in the low $400s. Whichever series fits your style and budget, you can be sure that Baessler will roll out the red carpet for you, allowing you to customize your home design and providing you with a personal concierge to see you through your entire homebuilding process.

If you’d like to learn more about building a new home with Baessler Homes in Northern Colorado, visit them online at or give them a call at 970-356-6251.
