design, and to our artistic and technical abilities in the construction of every new home. In partnership with our clients, we create a home with character and charm — a home filled with lasting textures and captivating finishes,” he added. “Painstaking attention to the details is


the hallmark of good design,” says Lisa Sawin. “Some details aren’t visible, like the state-of-the-art materials that stand up to the passage of time, and techniques that enable buildings to withstand the forces of nature. But the crown jewels are all the


fine details discriminating homeowners expect to see and feel in every room.” John Sawin sees to those details


personally. Builders typically tell their high-end clients they will receive personal attention from senior principals. But Sawin isn’t simply overseeing the work, he is often looking for opportunities for creativity during construction, or in the shop designing original trim profiles. He has a tremendous network of local craftsmen he is proud to work with, but he is a hands-on artisan. His craft is his


passion. “We are able to create a very unique feel and lifestyle for our clients in their homes through design, scale and texture,” Sawin said. One such treasure is this featured


meticulously rendered manor home in The Shores of York development, along the York River. With its gambrel rooflines and New England shingle style, the estate resembles similar elegant properties in Martha’s Vineyard, yet transported to Virginia’s coastline. The home features elaborate exterior trim with a variety of bracketed details, expansive wraparound front and rear porches, as well as a stone foundation, fireplaces and watertable. In 2010, Sawin decided to focus solely


on high-end waterfront living. “After 20 years of building hundreds of mid-range homes, I wanted to convey the artistic elements in our projects — to create a timeless product that would be appreciated for generations,” he said. Innovative Homes of Virginia is


dedicated to providing clients with only the highest quality and craftsmanship through all phases of the building process. Principles of ethics, honesty and open communication incorporated into every facet of every project have made Sawin successful over the past 29 years, while continuing to exceed clients’ expectations. His family owned and operated company stands ready to make your dream home become a reality. H
