Get a taste of the artistry and quality Josh Doyle builds into each of his homes. Each design is different because each reflects the wishes of the homeowner.


Whitehouse Valley, the fastest-growing neighbor-hood in Whitehouse, has been developed with the professional touch of a builder who provides every service a new home owner needs, from custom design elements through a final walk through that brings total satisfaction.

Josh Doyle is the exclusive builder for Whitehouse Valley, and he builds homes rather than houses. Close to 20 new homes have been built by Homes by Josh Doyle in the past two years and the new plat is just as popular as anything built in Whitehouse Valley to date. Lots are available now and are selling quickly. Some of the lots feature a water view.

All homes are in the well-respected Anthony Wayne School District and close to the Wabash Cannonball Trail. Josh Doyle 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 din-ing room with more of those beautiful tapered columns.


This comfortable great room includes a Craftsman-style fireplace.


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.

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 countertops are granite. Contemporary glass pendant lights illuminate the kitchen island.

A breakfast nook is already furnished, with a bench and small granite table. A slid-ing 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.

Homes By Josh Doyle is currently building in many different counties, and will build on your lot anywhere in Northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan.
