Modern Prairie

South Park/Charlotte | 2015 | Lloyd Harstell Custom Homes

springer floor plan elite design group
A unique home design that mashes up a Modern Contemporary, Asian, and Prairie Style. Located in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina this home design brings multiple styles and creates a one of a kind home that can stand the test of time. The clients wanted a very modern style home but also one that would still be eye catching in years to come. With real-estate values trending up in the Charlotte area, this particular home will most definitely keep and grow it’s value. A big focal point to this design is it’s outdoor space in the back. With a covered outdoor dining area that has an amazing outdoor fireplace as you transition into a wonderful lounge area that will keep your guest entertained for hours. Next is an elevated hot tub section with the fireplace behind it encased in glass that waterfalls into a very modern and spacious pool. To finish it, a beautiful wooden deck surrounds it all making it feel like you are in a far away, exotic location elevating your levels of relaxation. The use of stone, wood, fire, and water in this design make it a most zen place for these homeowners.

Strafford Estate

Lake Norman/The Point | 2007 | Stonebridge Luxury Homes

A porte cochere, two-story foyer and radius stair tower highlight this spectacular English Manor Tudor style home plan. The open floor plan downstairs features everything you would expect in a home this size: a spacious downstairs master suite; a dramatic master bath with walk-in shower; a gourmet kitchen with adjacent formal dining space; plus a study, large mud room and vestibule. But you’ll be pleasantly surprised by all the space upstairs. There are three suites, including one that is ideal for a mother-in-law suite. There’s also a media room, a computer work area, and, oh yes, a 525-square-foot game room with a balcony. Plans are also available for even more livable space upstairs. The porte cochere is adjacent to a single-car garage, while there is an attached garage with 2-car dimensions and a large storage area. If you need more space, an optional basement is available.

Our Process

It can be overwhelming to deal with the amount of information necessary for planning your new home. We pride ourselves on giving each client an enjoyable, efficient experience. Your ideas will be transformed into a freehand sketch, and we’ll help you each step of the way until the day you move in. We work from a sketch at first because, honestly, it’s easier – if you don’t like something, we’ll just erase and improve it.

There’s no rushing the creative process. More importantly, we like to have an open line of clear communication with you – this helps us get things done right the first time.


Meet the Team

If you’re used to a buttoned-up environment, that’s just not us. Our laid-back attitude grows out of our true enjoyment in working together as a team. J.J. is the first to crack jokes, and we actually like hanging out together after work. We like to think that this team dynamic matches our client relations. The team at Elite Design Group prides itself on timely, quality work and taking care of clients, with a warm touch that’s in tune with the friendly Charlotte vibe that we all know and love.
