By September 30, 2014 Press No Comments

Diamond Custom Homes, a luxury custom home builder based in Naples, brought home two Sand Dollars Awards for its Capistrano model at Quail West during the annual Sand Dollar Awards gala presented by the Collier Building Industry Association (CBIA) Sales and Marketing Council on Saturday, Sept. 27, at the Ritz Carlton Tiburon, in Naples. The Sand Dollar Awards are the highest accolades given by the CBIA and are presented each year to member builders, developers, architects, remodelers, interior design firms, landscape architects, trades, marketing, sales and advertising professionals who have demonstrated building, design and marketing excellence.

The Capistrano was awarded Best Master Suite, over $100,000, for a builder. Truly a highlight of the home, the space is tranquil, yet functional. A dramatic hallway leading to the master suite features tea-stained oak floors—adding an immediate feeling of luxury and elegance. Separate his and her bathrooms give both halves of a couple their own private retreat. Both include marble countertops with thickened edges, marble floors with glass tile inserts, custom cabinetry, expansive walk-in closets, and state-of-the-art Toto toilet bidet with auto sensor. Her bathroom features a separate vanity, a freestanding tub and an oversized, frameless frosted glass shower. The bedroom includes a charming sitting room with a bay window offering panoramic views of the spacious outdoor living area and golf course beyond, access to the outdoor pool area and a luxurious morning bar. A decorative ceiling adds a lavish touch, while applied moulding adds sophistication.

Diamond Custom Homes also won for Best Use of Custom Wood, over $50,000, in the builder category. According to Michael Diamond, president of Diamond Custom Homes, when designing the home, the goal was to bring the outdoors in through the use of substantial doors and windows throughout the home, making the outdoor living space easily accessible and capitalizing on the expansive views. The use of custom wood throughout was an integral part of that design process, striking a balance between rustic and formal.

The centerpiece of the home is the spacious great room, accentuated by an impressive vaulted ceiling with custom cypress trusses. The dark wood of the beams provides an ideal contrast to the formality of the stark white and neutral cream colors, bringing a rustic, outdoor vibe into the home. Custom wood, circular light fixtures suspended above complement the space perfectly.

“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by our peers in the building industry,” said Michael Diamond, president of Diamond Custom Homes. “I am especially proud of our team and their dedication to professionalism, quality craftsmanship and attention to detail.”
