When the G&G Custom Homes decided to participate in the 2016 Home-A-Rama in Westfield’s newest custom community called Chatham Hills, they determined it was a risk worth taking because of the growth potential of the area.

With the completion of U.S. 31 and the growth in the area, G&G Custom Homes, a full-service custom home builder, became the first builder to break ground and complete a home in the community.

“We typically build homes on contract, but we recognized the opportunity to be a part of this unique community in Westfield,” says Joe Garcia, owner of G&G Custom Homes.

More than 15,000 people toured the home in three weeks and voted it the “Best of Show”.

The exterior of the 6,500 square-foot home is described as the American Craftsman Style or American Arts and Crafts movement, which offers a wide variety of related but conceptually distinct European design movements that were developed out of the British Arts and Crafts movement going on since the 1860s. This inspired the interior design elements of the home that reflects a modern meets rustic look.

The home certainly provides that wow factor with unique design elements throughout. Wood beams used in the main floor ceiling and fireplace as well as the sliding barn doors and booth in the brew house-themed basement were salvaged from a 149-year-old barn that helped create the rustic theme throughout the award-winning home.

The 4-car garage is heated and includes a basketball hoop and a climbing wall to extend the theme that this home is about a big family that loves to entertain. The covered patio offers additional living space with a grill, sink, refrigerator, TV and plenty of space to relax.

“This house essentially has a full menu of options offered by G&G that clients can select and pick the elements that work best in their budget,” Garcia says.

Garcia noted the community is still taking shape and only about 15 percent complete with many more amenities being planned.

G&G focuses on unique design elements that complement the needs and dreams of each homeowner, and they are ready to assist you in the design of your custom home.
