Truland Homes is honored to present the 2016 Showcase Home for the Baldwin County Home Builder’s Association Parade of Homes.  The Showcase Home is located in Fairhope’s newest Master Planned Community, Greenbrier at Firethorne.  Firethorne is a community designed for convenience and comfort featuring a swimming pool, clubhouse, and a pavilion with fireplace and grilling area.  The trendsetting design of this home is evident as you tour the four bedrooms, three bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, media room, and outdoor kitchen and living space.  This home is exciting and very livable with expert craftsmanship displayed throughout.  The home’s interior includes custom built cabinetry, intricate trim work, a dream kitchen, cutting edge technology, and all of the latest design ideas.

     The open floor plan is generous and inviting with classic nuances that make this house a “Tru” beauty from the minute you step inside the door.  The alternating plank floors and 8’ tall doors add warmth to the custom crafted crown moldings.  The kitchen is an inviting family haven accented with wood beamed ceiling, the latest in chef inspired appliances, custom cabinets, a pot filler, and a gorgeous wood top island to make the kitchen a comfortable living area for family time or a place to relax.  Don’t miss the cabinet style walk-in pantry with two entries and nearby Drop Zone for book bags and jackets. An Old Chicago brick accented wall with arched opening leads into the living room.  The living room is a relaxing retreat complete with a beautiful brick fireplace and shiplap ceiling.

     The spacious downstairs flows from the living room into the kitchen, to the reclaimed barnwood butler’s pantry and then to the gorgeous formal dining room.  The 8’ door off of the breakfast room transitions the inside living space to outside onto the large rear porch with beautiful exposed beam ceiling, stained floors and an inviting outdoor kitchen. All overlooking an outdoor fireplace and lake.

     The home’s privacy and personality are exemplified in the main level master suite.  The suite offers a palatial bathroom that is like none you have ever seen.  Luxury and beauty prevail from the free standing Jacuzzi tub to the walk-in shower with multiple points of immersion and custom tile.  The huge walk-in closet is equipped with a custom organizing system to meet all of your storage needs.

     The upper level has 2 spacious bedrooms, a custom glass tiled bathroom and a state of the art media room that includes a snack bar and tiered seating.  The custom crafted staircase has dual landings that allow direct access to a sitting area and the media room.

     This energy efficient home features low E glass windows, open cell foam insulation and a 16 seer air conditioner that ensure comfort and protection throughout the home. You can also feel protected knowing this home is built to Fortified Gold standards to ensure premium performance.

     Other amenities include dual garages which will accommodate three vehicles.  Enjoy the serenity of Firethorne and the back yard views of the lake or a quick commute to downtown Fairhope to enjoy famous café’s and boutique shopping.

     Make plans to visit this fully furnished masterpiece and you will discover why each custom built Truland Home allows you to live your best life.

About Truland Homes

Truland Homes was established in 2011 in Spanish Fort, AL by its founder and CEO Nathan Cox.  He felt there was a need in the region for a company built around people of integrity with the drive to create something special together.  They set out to build a company where a promise and hand shake still meant something.  A company where your reputation was more important than your bottom line.   Above all else a company where the customer always came first. 

    Truland was founded during some of the darkest times of the Great Recession when it seemed with each passing day another builder was closing its doors and financing was all but impossible to obtain.  While others fell victim to the circumstances surrounding them, Truland focused its efforts on fostering its team, ascertaining financial strength and assembling the right collection of communities in preeminent locations.  It fought through and not only survived, but thrived because of the talent and persistence of the people brought into the Truland family during the early stages to serve as the foundation for success for decades to come.  This strategy has helped fuel the rapid growth of Truland and led to it quickly becoming one of the most sought after builders in the Mobile and Baldwin County region.   

    A Truland Home is not for everyone.  As they will tell you from the inception, “We will never be the cheapest, but we will always consider ourselves the best value.”  Their vision from the onset has been to deliver a custom product of the highest quality to people all along the Gulf Coast in order to provide an alternative to the cookie cutter homes produced for the masses.  Having well over 200 years of combined staff experience, they know that crafting a true custom home takes more than design and construction talent—it takes true inspiration.  The foundation of that inspiration is you.  You and your needs are at the heart of everything they do. From passionate experts in the Design Center that help craft your vision to personal project managers that closely manage the creation of your home, the entire Truland team believes that your home is not just a reflection of you, it is you.

     Truland lives and breathes on the philosophy of the ideal home. Unique but timeless. Not too small. Not too big. Incredibly efficient, smart, strong, and always in tune with you and the way you want to live.  They are strong, they are local and they stand ready to earn your approval no matter what it takes.
