At Monte Hewett Homes’ Lake Haven community in Milton, the single-family estate homes are being truly customized by an outstanding interior design team and new homeowners. The Monte Hewett design team understands that buyers at Lake Haven want a traditional home that features classic elements with a contemporary twist, with attention paid to even the tiniest detail. Each inventory home at Lake Haven includes new products and design ideas, making every home unique. The inventory and model homes also serve as design inspiration for the buyers, as they get to see the many upgrades and finish options that are available to them.

Many of the trends that homeowners at Lake Haven are choosing to add involve organic, rustic elements that give the homes a comfortable, warm feel. Buttboard, which gives the walls a beautiful, natural texture, can be found throughout many of the homes in this community. One homeowner at Lake Haven added an unfinished cedar wall to a bedroom, while a second new resident chose to incorporate an exposed brick wall in their dining room. Another natural element found in these homes is the use of stone on the stacked stone fireplace in the living room, which is surrounded by custom built-in shelving.

A second trend that is being seen in this Milton community is the desire to have functional gathering and entertaining spaces. Buyers have the option to cover the deck on the rear of the home and add a stone fireplace, creating a wonderful outdoor living space that can be used nearly year-round. Customized basements have also become a popular feature of homes from Monte Hewett. At Lake Haven, homeowners can have the basements finished to their liking. Whether homeowners want a great entertainment space with a media room and play area or a living space that includes additional bedrooms and bathrooms, the basements can be designed to fit any family’s needs.

The quality of these homes demands that the working spaces feature top-of-the-line professional appliances and features. The kitchens have an impressive list of customizable options and upgrades, including soft-close drawers, marble countertops and Viking appliances, which all make cooking meals a little less of a chore.

The final touch to the estate homes at Lake Haven comes from a simple and often overlooked source – lighting. Today’s homeowners are paying more attention to light patterns than ever before by choosing glass textures and bulb styles that complement the design of their home. One example is the retro-looking Edison bulb. The homeowner that chose to place an exposed brick wall in their dining room also had the wall wired for sconces. These fixtures allow for light to shine both above and below them, playing up the beautiful textures that are found in the brick.

Currently, there are three available homes under construction at Lake Haven in Milton that each showcase a wide range of custom features and unique designs. For more information on these new homes, contact the community sales agents, Paula Burr or Terry Fogarty, by calling 678-460-0711 or visit
