The hill country contemporary home at 7704 Lenape built by Keith Durio of JKD Builders was featured in the 2012 HBA Parade of Homes in October. We were really pleased during our time spent at the home on the weekends of the Parade that a very common comment by visitors was that the home was very livable.

Additional validation came when the home won the awards for Best Floorplan, Best Outdoor Living, Best Study, and Best Green Feature.

Hill Country meets contemporary in this unique one-story paradise that seamlessly integrates the relaxed charm of Hill Country with bold modern lines + edgy finishes.

From the moment you step into the foyer, expansive windows overlook the pool and outdoor space. Sky-high ceilings are accented with contemporary exposed duct work and sleek, painted barn doors and, underfoot, stained and dyed concrete floors help keep indoor temperatures level in all seasons.

The open floor plan enhances the views from the gourmet kitchen across to the living room, dining space and adjoining game room all opening to outdoor living area.

The deep covered outdoor spaces are perfect for year-round use. A grilling area is offset from the outdoor eating area, which is punctuated with a pass-through fireplace ideally situated for cool evening entertaining. Located just off the game room are three bedrooms with walk-in closets, and two full baths. Overlooking the pool and opening to the outdoor living area, the master wing exudes the ambiance of a private spa in your own home. The master suite's hand-scraped native wood floors are juxtaposed against the modern look of stainless three-blade fans and metallic faux-paint wall treatment. The spa bath includes a jetted tub, separate shower, his and her sinks, and massive walk-in closet. Completing the master wing is a study with its own private-access porch. Energy efficiency is accentuated with a state-of-the-art home automation system, rainwater collection, low-flow toilets and high-efficiency appliances.

"I was the designer and Elliot was the architect on a parade home a few years back. I found Elliot to be a pleasure to work with. We actually had a blast on the project.

I am impressed with Elliot's ability to combine functional floor plans that work with how people really live along with the beauty that we all desire.

If you are looking for someone who is a true professional and talent then you can't go wrong with Elliot."
