MANSIONS, PALACES, CASTLES
Luxury dream homes are created by evoking the visions of historical palaces and castles. The decorative arch, the intriguing porte cochere, the hand-worked stone and metals. A mansion should be an echo of an authentic period style, and a new interpretation for a heritage home. Your total needs and wants are incorporated in a magical way by the hand of John Henry. It is not just about 'solving a problem'. Estate homes are ethereal places that have a je ne sais quoi character, something intangible. But real and living.
Your mansion may be inspired by any specific world wide historical mansion, castle or palace. Or you can create a fantasy by mixing elements of several! A custom home design for our time should be practical but elicit the grandeur and mystique of ancient Greek, Roman, Middle East, French or Italian period edifices. You should communicate your exact wishes and requirements, your vision for how you wish to live, the statement that you want to impart. Your dream home should be exactly what you see in your mind and what you desire in your heart.
