There is a lot of vision, persistence, and heart that go into building an Artisan Home. Every inch is meticulously planned and carefully crafted in order to achieve a project that is truly world class. It takes an incredibly experienced and gifted group of experts – and we at Hendel appreciate and recognize every single person involved in creating this exquisite home.

It’s all in the details…

Curated tile artistically tells a story throughout, with unique designs in every bathroom and custom mosaic designs surrounding the five fireplaces.


Formal and informal living spaces sprawl across the main level, surrounding the gourmet kitchen with its multiple dine-in options plus a scullery to hide messes.



Nearly every room makes use of the incredible views, yet the expansive glass windows and disappearing doors have refined detail that feels warm and inviting.



A full pool house with vaulted ceiling and stone fireplace overlooks the lavish outdoor pool. The sport court is an indoor soccer field with turf, and a full exercise gym is stocked with the latest high-tech equipment.

An Artisan home uses the most talented tradespeople to carefully implement each and every detail. We demand the highest expectations from ourselves, which means that we also demand the highest level of quality from each subcontractor and employee. Building the right team is nearly as important as building the home itself. It takes years of nurturing and growing the strengths of each and every person, deepening trust, creatively solving challenges, and learning from one another. An Artisan home showcases the faithful pursuit of excellence and the heart of the people who built it.

A very special thank you to all the tradespeople who made this home possible – you are the true artisans!
