Custom Homes

At Great Neighborhood Homes, we build custom homes using a systematic "whole-house" approach.  We consider your specific needs, the home site, the latest design trends, and the character the neighborhood. The result is a home that looks great, lives functionally, and stands the test of time.  We build new luxury custom homes in Edina and the Minneapolis Lakes area.  

Our whole-house approach delivers a beautiful home with:

  • Timeless character and elegance
  • Quality that lasts
  • A size and style that complements the neighborhood
  • Lower utility and maintenance costs 
  • Reduced noise and greater comfort
  • A healthier and safer indoor environment 

The finest materials enhance great design

Our homes are exclusively built with high-grade, state-of-the-art materials from suppliers we know and trust. Exteriors impress with features like cedar shingles, Marvin windows, handcrafted shutters and oil-rubbed bronze hardware. Interiors surprise and delight with details like window seats, soaking tub nooks and custom built-ins. Finishing touches like knotty alder doors, crystal door knobs, hand-finished hardwood floors and head-turning chandeliers all work together to make your home uniquely yours. 

Unparalleled craftsmanship

The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail in GNH homes is truly unrivaled. You’ll find beautifully-detailed trim, coffered ceilings and custom cabinetry with dovetail joinery and soft-closing drawers. We work with a select group of trades people who are dedicated to building your home – and we stand behind each carpenter, plumber, electrician, painter and artisan. In fact, at closing we’ll pass along our contact list for use on future projects or handyman needs.

Our design philosophy is all about you

Your lifestyle drives every step of the design process. Each room of your new home will reflect your tastes, wants and needs. Love to cook? Our kitchens are a chef’s dream with granite countertops, walk-in pantries and professional grade appliances. Entertain on a grand scale?

Let us create a spa-like sanctuary in your master bath with a deep soaking tub, heated floors and a built-in sound system for your favorite soft music. If you imagine it, we can create it.
