Castlewood Custom Builders was created by its principals with the following mission in mind:
Combine decades of diverse professional experience and contacts in the Washington real estate market to produce distinctive, elegant residences with details and characteristics that are as unique as their owners, through an intimate, guiding and nurturing building process, designed to allow the customer to enjoy the journey every step of the way, faster and more reasonably priced than the competition.
As our satisfied customers will attest, Castlewood has accomplished these objectives and more, making it a desirable choice for those buyers seeking not only a high quality, “one of a kind” finished product, but also a process that is exciting, fun and rewarding along the way.
By design, Castlewood is not a large company — and our clients uniformly agree that that is a very GOOD thing! We are a true “boutique” operation, providing our clients with an building experience that is truly intimate — an approach that creates many positive, long-term relationships with our often-elated customers.
All of our homes feature tasteful design elements borrowed from some of America’s most authentic and nostalgic architectural styles, such as
19th century southern plantation mansions & country estates
Early 20th century beach-front or island cottages
Early New England colonial farmhouses
Authentic arts-and-crafts (craftsman) architecture of the early 1900's
Interwoven within this framework are features and characteristics that reflect the individual personality of each client, making each finished product truly “one of a kind”.
But the “secret sauce” to our approach lies in our diverse in-house management team, with over 50 years of combined experience in professional arenas beyond mere construction; a circumstance that enhances every aspect of service that we provide.
Accepting only a few projects at any given time, Castlewood couples its substantial in-house expertise with a varied team of outside architects, engineers, surveyors and other professionals, along with a stable of highly skilled subcontractors for every conceivable building discipline. The final group assembled for each project is designed to be “lean and mean,” eliminating wasted effort, minimizing idle downtime, and ensuring overall optimum efficiency throughout the building process. All of this means simply that we can (and do) build it faster and more reasonably priced than our competitors, but at a level of quality that satisfies even the most discerning customer.
