Custom Plans  (click here to go back to page 1 of Custom Plans)

The following luxury home designs are in development stages and are available either as schematics or Permit Set plans (see page bottom).  Works range from traditional Mediterranean, Tudor, Palm Beach, French Chateaux, Federal, Low Country, and other period and transitional styles to high modern (see our Ultra Custom Services).  Our custom homes have luxury features in all sizes and styles.  Designed by  Architect John Henry for World Class results.  if you wish we offer period style work with the minimum compromise.   European villas, manors and estates are our specialty.  We suggest vernacular architecture or historic designs complementary to your lifestyle and specifically planned for your site.  Classical architecture tends to subjugate environment to the building, while more contemporary designs attempt more organic solutions. 

Cost to purchase most existing plan designs is $4.90/ SF typ. for Permit Set drawings, $3.30/SF for Schematic Design only (see each description for plan contents/availability)

NOTE: We do not have plan books nor send copies of our floor plans unless we are under contract.  Please contact us to receive typical contract form, or set an appointment to view most of our work at our Orlando office.

Chateau des Reves: click image above for exclusive video of interior space

A beautiful group of Mediterranean, English and French inspired projects will be built in Florida, New York, Texas, Shanghai, and other locations for estate homes.  Stucco, brick and stone facades with varying rooflines per the period are  offered here and in previous sections.  A grand statement normally involves symmetrical grouping at the front entry, but not in every case.  Roof pitch and materials, the detail at eaves and cornice, all combine to enrich and establish the period style.  These concepts can be villas, bastides, or expanded into larger mansions and estate homes.

NOTE: We do not have plan books nor send copies of our floor plans unless we are under contract.  Please contact us to receive typical contract form, or set an appointment to view most of our work at our Orlando office.
