Grand Opening Success!

A Modern Farmhouse style showcase model home in Artesian Hills and a brand-new coastal estate in Carlsbad made their debut last month from San Diego Builder, MDD Homes. The result? A combination of the two open houses garnered an 800-person turnout in one weekend. The showcase model home, however, was the main event, complete with an in-house culinary artist preparing light hor d’oeurves and bite-sized desserts for people to enjoy as they strolled through the sprawling estate.

From the moment you enter the 4,675 sqft. dwelling through the 10ft tall gravity pivot door you are struck with an expanding great room that seamlessly bridges the gap between indoors and outdoors, allowing a vast, panoramic view of southern California’s hillside terrain from the grand veranda. A common theme noted over the weekend was about this unique characteristic, “I love the openness when you first walk in.” Others described how it applied to the family unit and recreation, “truly a house designed for spending time together and entertaining guests.”

The excitement and enthusiasm from visitors pulsated throughout the walls of the home, as the whispers of what a possible future life on the 2.5-acre estate would look like carried through each room. The highest of compliments were conferred upon the MDD Interior Design Team, as their use of sophisticated finishes, contrasting colors, and luxurious textures boasted a visually appealing aesthetic. A favorite spot in the whole of the house was the spa-like retreat master bathroom. Outlined by its flat panel glass enclosure, black granite backdrop, stainless steel tub, and waterfall showerhead.

The attached Accessory Dwelling Unit (A.D.U.) with its own address, parking, laundry, and full-service kitchen, impressed many with its practicality and usefulness in today’s housing crisis. Another point of interest for visitors was the prep-kitchen or butler’s pantry, expertly demonstrated by MDD’s on-site cuisinier. The immaculate kitchen sparkled, but just behind it all the hard work that went into making the event preparations could be seen. A perfect test to show the practicality of having such a feature.

A special treat for MDD was when the many familiar faces it has gotten to know over the years through custom build projects, stopped in to tour the home and show their support. In talking with Monty McCullough, owner of MDD Homes, one previous client stated, “This is what we have been waiting for! We are ready to build with you again.” Another said, “we have been following your homes for years, but this is by far my favorite.” Mentions like this stand as a testament to MDD’s quality and uniqueness of design and their attention to the details, separating them from other builders in the area.
