Exterior Style Options of New Homes for Sale in Richmond

But it’s also a feature you don’t want to change with the seasons! At Main Street Homes, we offer three distinct exterior styles. By using the most durable and respected materials, you’ll have comfort and peace of mind for years to come regardless of your choice.

Our Manor style homes offer a classic brick exterior. As a mainstay for centuries, brick is a well-appointed finish to most home designs. For many homeowners brick provides a sense of security. It lasts a lifetime, rarely requires work, and maintains its appearance throughout the years. It is considered an energy saver because its high thermal mass can stave off rapid temperature changes. Today’s options are more versatile than ever offering a variety of textures, colors, and perfectly tinted mortar to accent your brick. Take a look at the difference between our Patterson II in Harpers Mill and Woolrich in Oglethorpe Park; both new homes for sale in Richmond offering brick exteriors.

Siding is the most widely used choice for home exteriors. Our Traditional style makes an array of colors and options available to you. See the impressive appearance on our Berkeley in Fox Creek and the same floor plan in Aston. Vinyl siding does not peel, rust, flake, or corrode and withstands weather extremes. Choices are available to resemble wood clapboard and even cedar shakes. It can be hung horizontally or vertically, does not require paint and can be easily power-washed when needed. The low-maintenance nature of this siding makes it a popular choice.

Main Street’s Craftsman style homes reflect the tradition of the Arts and Crafts movement with their high-quality workmanship. Just take a look at the decorative brackets under the eaves and the inviting front porch under the roof extension of this Lancaster design in Harper’s Mill. Craftsman exteriors are noted for their mixed use of materials offering a unique, original appearance. You’ll find brick, stone and shingle accents along with vertical and horizontal siding on most new Craftsman style homes for sale in Richmond. This style is popular because it offers spacious, modern footprints wrapped in early American charm!
