The home features a siding-clad facade with a color palette composed entirely from America’s best historical colors. Designed to maximize living space, be kind to a tighter budget, and maintain the design elements that will never beg for a facelift, the Ashby is sure to please.
The interior of this home features spaces perfect for large family gatherings or parties, while maintaining a perfectly livable floor plan. A formal foyer with 20-foot ceilings invites guests into the heart of the home. A large formal area is found directly to the guest’s right. It features Browning’s standard column and architrave openings, beautiful wainscoting, and hard-surface flooring suitable for a formal dining room or living room–just add the area rug. To the left, the guest will see a grand den, featuring 20-foot ceilings and a large opening in the upper wall adjacent to the front windows–a feature that is loved by all who experience it. As the guest moves forward, they immediately enter the great room, a space suitable for a large gathering but cozy enough for more intimate groups. A beautiful fireplace sits exactly opposite the kitchen, easily seen from the foyer, dining room, and kitchen. Flanked by columns sits a buffet counter, conveniently separating the great room from the kitchen area. The Ashby kitchen is stunning as well as perfectly useful. Large and open, the kitchen has a large breakfast nook and super-sized pantry. The mud room and laundry room are directly adjacent to the kitchen between it and the oversized garage.

Upstairs features a library loft, with two large bedrooms, a family room, and a large full bathroom. Though the Ashby was not built with a bonus room over the garage, the structure was designed to accommodate one. Dormers already adorn the home, which would be the active windows for the very large bonus room.

The Georgian is a fine example of traditional southern architecture with a modernistic approach. This home was built by Browning Homes, but one of a very few not designed by Doug, rather by Designamics and the homeowners. The home looks much larger than it’s modest 4,264 feet of living space would suggest. Being a two-story home, its 92′ x 112′ footprint is more typical of a single level rambler, but it it this expansive floor plan that gives the Georgian it’s grand curb-side appeal and unique amenities, such as a secondary full-size garage beyond the breezeway and a separated quarters for guests and an exercise room.
Rather than cladding the home with traditional lap siding, stucco was used with a mesh to keep it from cracking. Expansive stucco trim details were used to give elegance and an architectural flare to the windows and eaves. The large round columns and balustrade system creates the focal point that is both inviting and revealing–it sets the tone for the interior features. In short, the Georgian is a great example of Browning’s simple elegance.
Stepping over the threshold, one’s eyes are immediately sent upward as the curved staircase and massive chandelier rise to the balcony of the second floor. Flanked by a Formal Dining Room on the right and a Study on the left, the foyer sets the tone for the rest of the house. Straight ahead is a large Great Room with 21-foot tall boxed coffer ceilings. A baker’s dozen of Browning’s signature columns are used throughout the home to beautify and define living space. To the right of the Great Room sits the Kitchen. Designed as an open floor plan with the desire to entertain, this home’s kitchen is perfectly placed. From the kitchen, one may step outside to the outdoor living space and pool for private summer outdoor activities, or quickly access the laundry room and main garage. The Kitchen features a vintage touch with its eat-in-kitchen built-in table. Crystal chandeliers, cherry cabinets, granite counters, and stainless-steel appliances help make this kitchen memorable and useable.
