The homebuilding process intimidates many people. They are afraid they may choose the wrong builder, or not be happy with the completed product, or have unforeseen cost overruns.

Josh Doyle is the type of builder everyone wishes they could have. He personally designs each home he builds – in 3D, no less – so that his clients may see every aspect of their home before a single shovelful of dirt is turned. His focus is on structural quality and energy efficiency, and having grown up in the business, he has the experience to make it happen.

His model home at 6216 Whitehouse Valley Drive is a fine example of this. The Craftsman-inspired design incorporates sage green siding with a stone facing on the exterior of the home. Tapered pillars and carriage-style garage doors reinforce the style.

Inside, the foyer ceiling rises 10 feet – and up to 14 feet in the adjacent great room. A den to the right makes an ideal home office. To the left is an elegant formal dining room with more of those beautiful tapered columns.

The sunny great room has a gas fireplace with a tile surround, and a white wood mantel that echoes the tapered pillars. The cathedral ceiling draws the eye upward.

Dark maple cabinets are hung at varying heights for visual interest and topped by granite.

To the right, and open to the great room, is the stunning kitchen. A large work island doubles as a snack bar. The castled cabinets are maple with an ebony stain, topped by crown molding. The counter-tops are granite. Contemporary glass pendant lights illuminate the kitchen island.

A breakfast nook is already furnished with a bench and small granite table. A sliding door leads to a covered porch and the patio beyond.

The master suite at this end of the home affords the homeowner privacy. The large bedroom is quite comfortable. The master bath includes a dual vanity topped in white cultured marble, a stone tile step-in shower with a seat, a deep soaking tub, and a walk-in closet. A separate water closet is hidden behind a pocket door.

Also off the kitchen is the home’s mudroom. Lockers create a perfect landing pad for backpacks and sporting equipment. This area also boasts a powder room, the laundry room, and access to the three-car garage.

At the other end of the home are two additional bedrooms; they share a hall bath.

Off the foyer is the staircase to the full, finished basement. A fourth bedroom is located here, adjacent to a full bath. There are also a kitchen, space for a play area or media room, and multiple storage areas.

Whitehouse Valley is in the Anthony Wayne School system, as are The Hamptons and Crimson Hollow, the other neighborhoods where Josh is the exclusive builder. He currently has seven homes under construction in White-house Valley, and will be opening 20 new lots in the neighborhood next month. This popular area is close to downtown Whitehouse, as well as The Shoppes at Fallen Timbers, parks, and the Wabash Cannonball Trail.

Homes By Josh Doyle is currently building in six different counties, and will build on your lot within an hour and a half of Toledo.
