The featured home is a custom “design-build” for a well deserving couple. The Rayfield’s met with Delia in 2021 and the design-build process began. Delia’s unique approach to home building and her in depth design process sets her apart in the custom home building industry. The collaboration of Lemongrass Custom Home & Design with Sarah Bass Interior Design has proven to be an amazing success! Both Delia & Sarah bring not only 20+ years of experience, but their desire to make each home functional for the homeowners provides a sense of security to the clients as they move through the process.
This year’s Showcase Home is a showstopper! The view of Mobile Bay from the front of the home is spectacular. The front elevation is modern but also gives a sense of warmth with its colors and textures. It’s very much like a piece of contemporary artwork.
The narrow site line front door and gas lanterns add to the home’s beautiful architecture. Upon entering the home and living space you are immediately wowed with an amazing asymmetrical floor to ceiling wall with a fireplace and floating metal staircase. It’s the kind seen only in architectural magazines.
The two-story living room allows lots of natural light into the home. The dining room with its one-of-a-kind dining table and light fixtures as well as the custom office both have beautiful views of the water and picturesque sunsets. The kitchen is loaded with Wolf-Sub Zero appliances, custom contemporary cabinetry, and gorgeous countertops with a natural stone backsplash.
Tucked behind the staircase is a smaller living space with a coffee bar close by. Each room has custom features that are beautiful AND functional.
The primary bedroom features custom wall panels and incredible light fixtures that make it the perfect retreat. The primary bathroom features plum brown cabinetry and a wet room made with large form porcelain slabs. The beauty of the tub/shower area cannot be described in words. It’s a “must see!” Off the Primary Bedroom is a custom-built closet adjoining a laundry room with multiple functional and fashionable details. Wait until you see the Powder Room! The combination of the wallpaper, black and white marble flooring, and gorgeous cabinetry and fixtures, make this room one you can’t forget!
The home is equipped with a fully functional elevator which the homeowners will utilize daily because of the incredible view from the upstairs “viewing room”. This upstairs living space overlooks Mobile Bay and from any window in the room you can see the bay and will never tire of the view. This upstairs living space is equipped with a kitchenette and custom live edge dining table. The upstairs also includes a unique guest room with a custom painted ceiling and contemporary light fixture. This bedroom is a splash of fun for visiting guests. The upstairs guest bath showcases a custom tub/shower and a cabinet to ceiling tile backsplash for a beautiful design accent. This home was also designed with an additional Primary Suite on the second floor which features a walk-in closet and desk area for additional storage and functional space. The adjoining bathroom has lovely porcelain slabs in the shower and accent wall. The heated and cooled attic space is a bonus for the homeowners. The home was designed for “aging in place” in mind and major thought has gone into every detail.
There is unique outdoor space for every time of day and every season. The location of the home is perfect, and each architectural element design feature and functional space comes together to create a beautiful work of art for the homeowners to enjoy.
