Best New Build: Timeless Plaza Home Out Of A Fairytale

This custom Cramer’s Pond abode has features classic Georgian design elements with a few modern twists, earning our pick for best new build.

Style in 3 words: Timeless, gracious, enchanting.

The house: At 4,981 square feet, the house has 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.

Design: The Cramer’s Pond neighborhood is built around the historic Barnhardt Estate in Plaza Midwood. This house is a beautiful balance of new made-to-look old (paying homage to the estate), and fresh modern design. True to the Georgian style, the exterior features lime-washed brick (hand-applied by a local artisan), copper gutter and a cedar shake roof.

There’s also English-garden-inspired courtyard entry with sweeping lime-washed brick walls, irregular bluestone walkway, unexpected pea gravel, boxwood hedges and lavender. Heavenly.”
