One of the most rewarding aspects of building a custom home is the sense of pride you experience every time you pull into your driveway. While every detail of your custom home is planned to meet your needs and lifestyle, that first impression that the exterior of the home radiates from the curb is particularly important.
The curb appeal of a custom home not only impacts its resale value, it gives the home personality, extends the living space outdoors, and is the cornerstone of the homeowner’s pride in ownership.
This lot in Jefferson Hills is surrounded by lush land. Lots of greenery, tall trees and a natural pond. Such a gorgeous lot called for an equally gorgeous home! So, the owner got in touch with Costa to create a unique custom home that took full advantage of the beautiful surroundings. We worked alongside the customer and our friends at Naturescape to design an outdoor living space the family will love.

Some of the custom outdoor amenities this home features are:
A salt water pool with an automatic cover
A large patio complete with a fantastic view
A waterfall feature on the natural pond
An outhouse perfect for picnics
A firepit with plenty of surrounding seating
Living in this home is like living in your very own park! There’s no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy or nature to admire. And the best part? It was all custom designed to suit the homeowner’s lifestyle.
When you’re spending a lot of time and effort on a brand new home, it has to be perfect. You’ve decided to put your time and money into designing, building and decorating your dream home – it should work for you. Plus, you’ll be in your home for a considerable time, so it needs to be a space you love!
We’ve all heard the saying, “home is where the heart is.” This is particularly true for people who build their own luxury home. When you buy a pre-existing home, no matter how much you love it, there is always at least one thing you wish were different. But when you build your own luxury home, every detail is custom-designed to fit your needs and style.
When you build a luxury home, your home really does become the place your heart is.

When you’re ready to build a new home, it’s exciting to think about what it will look like—and how much you’ll enjoy living there—when it’s complete. First, though, you’ll start the process by designing your dream house and beginning the construction phase. If you have decided to construct a beautiful new custom home on your own lot, you’re going to have the freedom to build just the type of home that you would love to live in.
If you’re planning to move in the future – either close to your current location or further away – you’ve probably thought about how all of your home needs and wants will be fulfilled. Will you be able to get exactly want you want? Maybe you’d like to live in a home with a commercial-style kitchen and plenty of space for entertaining, or you’re looking for a room that can be used as a home theater. You may not find a perfect house that already exists. It’s time to think about new construction.

Spring is a great time to begin building your new luxury home. Pittsburgh weather may lag behind other areas, but it’s safe to say the warmer temperatures are upon us and likely here to stay. What does that mean for home construction? It means weather delays are less likely, and after the excavation is done, there’s no need to worry about frost impeding the progress before your home’s foundation is complete. But those are just some of the reasons.
