Built in 2010 in Dallas, this custom Tuscan villa is an updated version of a Mediterranean style of home. The materials used in this construction are modern sizes of traditional elements found in villas. It is constructed of Leuders and Grandberry Stone, and incorporates exposed brick and finished walls throughout the inside, which complements the exterior look and feel. The overhangs, the barrel-tile roof, and the faux balcony are a nod to Lakewood construction.

Our client was gracious enough to share some beautiful words with us about their experience working with English Heritage Homes of Texas:

Working with Marcus really made the home building process smooth.  His recommendations were based on creating a well built home out of quality materials.  We would highly recommend Marcus and his team for your project.

  • The guest bath has a banded-tile floor with banding, all stained trim, and a hexagonal wood window.
  • The cabinets are an antique style and coordinate with the 1930s light fixture.
  • The exterior of the home is a mix of Leuders and Grandberry stone with brick insets in the stone.
  • The front door is double stained and the metal-clad wood windows are color fast so they will not fade or require paint.
