Join us on this journey of architectural excellence and discover what sets Fairview Custom Homes apart in luxury home construction. These awards not only recognize our dedication but also our relentless pursuit of perfection.

The Webster Residence

The Webster Cottage is a stunning blend of contemporary and mid-century modern design, perfectly nestled in a mountain setting. Its symmetrical and elegant façade leaves a lasting impression, seamlessly harmonizing with the natural landscape. The house showcases a captivating mix of glass, board, and batten siding, with a warm-toned wood and glass entry door that immediately grabs your attention. Modern floor-to-ceiling windows with an accented shed roof allow natural light to flood the interior, which creates a warm and welcoming ambiance.

This modern take on a mid-century cottage embraces minimalistic aesthetics. Inside, a two-sided linear gas fireplace divides the dining and living spaces, with striking vaulted and shed ceilings enhancing the floor-to-ceiling window features. The kitchen continues the mid-century design with unique lighting accents, two-toned cabinetry, and a vertically stacked electric teal backsplash. The oversized island, concealed pantry, and thoughtful design make it a functional and beautiful space for entertaining.

The primary bedroom and ensuite maintain the design’s continuity, with soothing green tones and luxurious elements like a wet-room shower design with a Japanese soaking tub. The slate grey tile with white and blue veining flows seamlessly through the bathroom and shower, complementing the natural wood floating vanity. The Webster Residence exemplifies the fusion of modern design and traditional mountain textures, showcasing the pinnacle of mountain living with artistic functionality.

The Shipley Residence

The Shipley Residence, perched atop the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, is a true masterpiece in custom mountain lodge design. Offering the most breathtaking vistas South Carolina has, every element of this home exudes meticulous attention to detail. From the rich reclaimed wood beams gracing the main floor to the master ensuite designed for pure relaxation, no aspect was spared.

This exceptional residence exemplifies the harmonious collaboration between builder, client, and architect, where the paramount focus was the site’s unique challenges and maximizing the awe-inspiring view. A challenging, steep slope necessitated a remarkable 13-foot-tall, nearly two-hundred-foot-long boulder retaining wall, enabling access via a paver driveway to this stunning abode. The architect’s ingenious solutions overcame the complexities of the site, ensuring that homeowners enjoy the most extraordinary vista available.

Crafted with a fusion of natural cedar shake and warm-toned horizontal fir lap siding, slate-like roofing, cedar accents, and fieldstone, the exterior perfectly blends rustic character and elegance. The entrance, graced with stone columns and an arched roof, opens to an interior seamlessly incorporating the same warm materials, showcasing seven custom beams that span from the great room to the screened porch.

The mountain lodge aesthetic flows throughout the main living area, from the tongue-and-groove ceiling to stone accents. The rich wood tones in the cabinetry, ceiling beams, fireplace mantle, and wide plank wood floors breathe life into the lodge design. The double islands in the kitchen, ideal for entertaining, serve as a focal point. The master ensuite offers a breathtaking view and a private balcony from the back. The primary bedroom mirrors the main living space’s wood tones while introducing a calming palette and softer textures. The primary bathroom, with its freestanding soaking tub and mountain-framed window, provides a serene escape.

This awe-inspiring home is a testament to the expertise and dedication of a meticulous team of craftsmen and tradesmen, resulting in a seamless blend of traditional mountain design and rustic lodge charm. The Shipley Residence showcases excellence when a skilled crew collaborates to achieve a remarkable goal.

Best Website for Home Builder

State award in collaboration with web developer agency Branded By Greenville

In January 2023, Fairview Custom Homes, in collaboration with the Branded by Greenville advertising agency, unveiled a website that brilliantly marries modern elegance with exceptional user-friendliness. The team, led by Evan Barnes and Warren Coppage, embarked on a journey to encapsulate the essence of Fairview Custom Homes through a meticulous brand analysis process. Three defining words – sleek, welcoming, and innovative – guided this endeavor, reflecting Fairview’s aspiration to treat clients like family while delivering top-tier quality and creative solutions.

This journey commenced with a deep exploration of the desired future state of the Fairview Custom Homes brand. The team meticulously selected a color palette featuring soothing Pebble White, Dutch White, and Grullo shades, enriched with a hint of Oxford Blue for intrigue. The graceful Foundry Tiento typeface was chosen, exuding modernity with neo-classical elegance. This design approach allowed Branded by Greenville to flawlessly encapsulate Fairview’s future vision.

The next phase centered on identifying the ideal client persona, primarily middle-aged individuals seeking retirement retreats or dream vacation homes with picturesque views and resort-style amenities. The team crafted a visual stylescape, including gold accents, organized layouts, sketch illustrations, and a luxurious Serif typeface. These elements served as the blueprint for the final Fairview website, further enhanced by custom assets like image carousels, a captivating B-Roll Film, home sketch illustrations, and interactive elevation maps, providing a unique browsing experience. The project continued with meticulous wireframing, ensuring the website’s layout adhered to a high standard of consistency and performance, earning Google’s highest speed rating.

Fairview Custom Homes and Branded by Greenville’s collaborative efforts aspire to offer an efficient, modern, and user-friendly experience across all devices.
