The Rising Popularity of the Neo-Traditional Home

neo-traditional-interior

 Sometimes termed "new traditional," a neo-traditional home is an architectural style that relies on style elements from the past. The goal is to recreate an emphasis on family and small-town living that has largely disappeared in today's urban neighborhoods and suburban sprawl.

Although the neo-traditional homes by Dan Ryan Builders utilize thoroughly modern technology and materials, they are reminiscent of the homes that peppered close-knit communities. Such homes are frequently associated with New Urbanism, a concept that puts the focus on walkable neighborhoods and "village-style" living.

The appeal of a neo-traditional home begins with the street view. These homes capture the charm of a past era epitomized by small-town neighborliness. Expansive raised porches and sturdy columns lead to a welcoming front entry door. Exteriors boast traditional paned windows and pitched roof lines. Some models feature dormers, and the facades feature clapboard siding accented with brick or stone. These affordable homes also include rear-entry garages and basements

Choose from a menu of options for your home, from kitchen upgrades to satisfy your inner gourmet to a tray ceiling in the dining room or a lavish soaking tub in your private owner's bath. Embrace an open floor plan that's perfect for family togetherness as well as for entertaining a crowd. Opt for a closed-door home office or small den on the main level, or choose a plan with a second-floor loft that serves as a teen center or private guest retreat.

Homebuyers have the option to use the basement in a way that makes sense for your family. Leave it unfinished for now, or add a complete bath and finish it to provide additional living space. There are other options with select floor plans as well, such as fireplaces, a detached garage, or a screened porch.
