Pride Of Home Ownership

By Ricky Perrone

For more than 32 years my family’s passion has been building high end custom homes in the Sarasota area. I’ve grown up learning what makes a home special, the aspects and features in a home that lead to pride of ownership and when the time comes, a quicker and higher resale value next to comparables. I’d like to share some of my insights with you regarding design, architectural details and construction techniques. The objective is to build a special home, a home that will stand out, pass the test of time and provide pride of ownership. 

Of the utmost importance is design. A home with a true architectural foundation will have a timeless appeal to it. A well designed home will feel as relevant in thirty years as it does today, but only if it stays true to its roots. Part of creating a successful home is to study and understand the history of the style and the various areas from where it draws its influences. Look at examples of homes that have been around for a long time and understand what makes them attractive to you. Subtle details won’t jump out at you but instead quietly add to the character of a home, look for them, you’ll often be surprised by their simplicity and cost effectiveness. It’s an exercise that will leave you very excited to build. Of equal importance is to avoid “cutesy” overbearing details which can diminish a homes appeal faster than true to style details can add to it.

The builder is a huge part of the equation as well. In our own instance we work closely with the architect and the client throughout the entire process. We act on our client’s behalf treating the home as if it were our own, offering suggestions to create the best home possible. The depth of character attained through the right construction techniques, as well as materials selection, is of as much importance as the design phase itself. Sitting down with our clients we determine where additional focus has the biggest impact on the quality of the home. The right builder not only plays into the longevity of the home but also the overall appeal, character and ultimately pride of ownership as well.

The ideas I’ve discussed here all play into pride of ownership. You want a home that distinguishes itself from every other home. The goal is when you pull up in the driveway it is not only the curb appeal that makes you grin, but the fact that that same feeling stays with you as you walk through your home, enjoying the subtle details reminding you of the special home you own. You have a home that is uniquely you, a home that feels as though it could have been here for a century and will still be relevant attractive and functional in another century.
