Our Team of Experts

Embracing the benefits of eco-minded design
and advanced technologies

Proud to offer accessible home features

Building homes with accessible features is integral to our company’s culture.  To us it means respecting and welcoming a broader range of homeowners. Opening doors to  multi-generational families. And providing the means for older adults to continue enjoying  the comfort and privacy of a single family home.

Lights, cameras action now in the palm of your hand

We know there is nothing more important than keeping your family and your home safe and protected. So wherever possible we  pre-wire and build in state of the art technologies and robust networking capabilities. This gives our homeowners anywhere/anytime digital control of their home’s safeguard systems, and conveniences.

A promise of healthier, environmentally friendly building components

Protecting and sustaining our natural resources while adding to your comfort are core values we incorporate in every Classic-built home. More than just feel-good values, they are energy and cost saving benefits that you’ll enjoy for a lifetime.

Enduring value doesn't happen by chance

New homes have always enjoyed a never-before-lived-in special appeal. Where a Classic Home really stands apart is in its design freshness, the quality of its workmanship,  and the premium materials used in building. It is in the practiced coordination and balance of these attributes  where lasting value is created.

From ongoing sponsorship of local youth activities and education to a host of initiatives worldwide, Classic Homes believes the reward is in the doing.
