At CarrHomes, we’ve helped more than 10,000 people find the home of their dreams. We’ve been doing it for nearly 100 years and have learned a lot over the decades, including what prospective buyers should look for in a custom home. Today’s post features a few important things that you should keep in mind as you search for a new home.

If you would like to speak to a member of the CarrHomes staff about any of the properties we have available, please reach out through our website or give us a call. We would be happy to provide you with information and a tour of our luxury homes in Oakton or any of our other communities in Northern Virginia.

Flexible Designs

While we’ve been in business for nearly a century, we still put homeowners first. Some builders will tell you that certain personalizations are too much work, or that an idea just won’t with the current design.

We take a different approach.

A luxury home isn’t just a home — it’s a lifestyle, and no two lifestyles are the same. Would you like French doors that provide you with a view of your property? Do you need a wall moved so that you can make the most of a certain room? We want your home to be an extension of you, and we’ll always do what we can to accommodate what you need.

Luxury is so much more than a surface-level appearance. Luxury is in the details, and you won’t find any home builders more committed to getting the details right than the team at CarrHomes. From the materials we use to build our homes to the installation process and reviewing every room before we deem a property move-in ready, you simply won’t find a stronger commitment to craftsmanship among any home builders in Northern Virginia.


We have a saying here at CarrHomes: “The greener other builders go, the smarter CarrHomes looks.”

We say this because while many home builders are just now going green, we’ve been utilizing eco-friendly building materials and high-efficiency products for years. We’ve always remained ahead of the curve, and we continue to implement cutting-edge, environmentally sustainable features into all of the luxury homes we build.
