15 Jan This builder’s personal choice? Chesapeake Pearl
When Scott Naylor of Naylor Custom Homes built his new home, he selected Chesapeake Pearl brick with white mortar using white sand.
“I chose Chesapeake Pearl because of the definition of the color in the brick,” said Naylor. “It has a rustic look that my wife and I were looking for. At that time, there were fewer people using Chesapeake Pearl and we always want to be different!”
The Naylor home is their castle. Especially in the frontage where darker rustic stone presents an impressive entranceway complete with a towering turret. Dark wood in the doors and shutters adds to the contrast. Dark blue stamped concrete on all the porches and rear patio equally stands out and, in shadow this brings out a whole different palette of accents in the brick.
Chesapeake Pearl is a brick that gives you a different home as the light changes. In bright sun, you see dry sand. In the shade, you see more of the highlights.
As a home builder, Naylor needs space for his work vehicles as well as the family cars. So his new home has driveways off of two streets on the corner lot. Two in the front and one going to a rear pad and garage, big enough for a full-size pick-up and tool trailer.
While the front of the home is a castle, the back is more like a country lodge. And the kind of place where a successful builder can relax or entertain a big group.
There’s a brick porch complete with hot tub and TV. Go down a Chesapeake Pearl stairway to stamped concrete patio, big enough for a party, itself. That connects to an amazing screened room that looks like it was designed for a Super Bowl Party. Naylor has it well appointed with vented outdoor grill, fridge, TV and comfortable cushioned whicker furniture.
“Pine Hall Brick is a great brand and a local company,” said Naylor. “We always have great service with them.”
As home buyers seek out lighter colored brick, the Naylor home is a showpiece, demonstrating how colorful and stylish it can be with such a low-maintenance product.
