New Home Characteristics

New homes in Crestview will reflect a “Craftsman Home” theme. These homes have a recognizable look with their attention to wood detailing. The homes are characterized by low-pitched, side gable roofs accentuated by wide overhangs and exposed roof-rafter ends. Single large or smaller multiple dormers on the upper level enable the side gabled roof to remain the dominant feature of the home. Windows are vertically rectangular, doublehung with divided panes, or geometric patterns with small pane glazing on the upper sashes.
