May 2014 | Home Builder Award

The Home Builder Association of Maryland held the annual MAX Awards on May 1, 2014 at Martin’s Valley Mansion in Hunt Valley, MD. Over 20 builders of all sizes, from national to local, competed for awards in a variety of categories. The master of ceremonies was Baltimore comedian and former 98 Rock star, Mickey Cucchiella.

Home submissions in the MAX Awards are judged on “design, livability and value”. Classic Homes entered a customized Lily Stone and took home the award for the Best Customized Home in its category.

The Lily Stone comes standard with features that make it a truly Craftsman home, including a Hardie Shingle/Hardie Plank front with stone accents. Inside, our Craftsman Trim Package includes finishes such as 6″ flat base boards and 4″ flat door and window trim.

This particular award-winning Lily Stone features a few unique customizations to suit the homeowner and the homesite. The biggest change was modifying the plan to fit the Bethesda lot’s 37 x 55 sq ft build area.

Through clever use of space, our architects managed to reduce the Lily Stone footprint, without losing any of the model’s charm or functionality. The Mudroom for instance, was replaced with a built-in bench and cubby holes.

Built-in book shelves added to the Den are both practical and stylish, giving the room a sophisticated feel. The homeowners also chose to add a rear raised covered porch, with an enclosed area below.

Our team takes great effort in customizing our homes to suit the specific needs of our buyers. Talk to one of our Sales Managers about building your dream home.
