Three distinct architectural styles make up the streetscapes found in Bryson neighborhoods. Each style was selected to be reminiscent of the Bryson family history but only one was inspired by an early 20th century arts movement — Craftsman.
The Craftsman style was born out of the late 19th century British Arts & Crafts Movement, which rejected the new, mass-produced goods of the Industrial Revolution in favor of handcrafted products made by artisans. The movement came to America in the early 20th century as a way of making serious architecture more accessible to hardworking people.
Today, the rustic allure of Craftsman is synonymous with charm, warmth and informality. The chief appeal of this style is the wide welcoming front porch sporting thick, tapered columns along the perimeter. Other details setting this architectural style apart from others include an emphasis on horizontal lines, with low-pitched gable (triangular) roofs that extend far out past the home’s exterior walls, often with exposed beams or rafters.
A beautiful example of Craftsman-style architecture is the Brookfield Residential model home. The exterior of the Elon floor plan showcases dormer windows set in gables and the charming front porch evokes lazy days waving to neighbors as you sip lemonade on it. Brookfield offers this style of elevation as an option with most of its designs.
Of course, the interiors of Bryson homes owe more to the 21st century than the 20th. Inside, you will discover open floor plans that are perfect for hosting formal and informal gatherings, island kitchens, beautiful primary suites and plenty of storage — everything today’s families need for a fabulous lifestyle.
