Calvis Wyant Luxury Homes Wins 2018 Best in American Living Awards by National Association of Home Builders

I've never had such outstanding workmanship, attitude and service all rolled into one

Award recognizes Arizona builder in the one-of-a-kind custom home over 8,000 square feet category

Scottsdale, Ariz. December 13, 2018 – Calvis Wyant Luxury Homes, an Arizona-based luxury custom home builder, announced today that it is a winner of the 2018 Best in American Living™ Awards (BALA) by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in the one-of-a-kind custom home category for single-family residences over 8,000 square feet.

The winning luxury home, was designed by Gary Wyant and built by Calvis Wyant Luxury Homes of Scottsdale, Ariz. Carefully crafted to mimic the architectural and design style of an expansive yet cozy and lush Mediterranean Villa, the award-winning Paradise Valley estate was planned to capture and preserve the spectacular views of Camelback Mountain. The home serves as a Southwestern retreat for the owner’s large extended family that visits often to enjoy the Arizona lifestyle through the home’s indoor and outdoor living spaces. The residence offers several large, warm gathering areas as well as many elegant separate rooms and patio areas that offer guests comfort and privacy.

“It’s not easy making something new look like an old Italian villa,” said Gary Wyant, Calvis Wyant’s architect. “We blended weathered stone and reclaimed woods with contemporary elements such as steel-framed windows to create a sense of authenticity. Interior designer Lissa Lee Hickman of LHL, Inc. did an amazing job creating an inviting transitional interior that is as luxurious as it is comfortable. It’s as if the house has already stood the test of time, yet offers the family all the modern comforts and conveniences of the modern day.”

Now in its 35th year, BALA recognizes outstanding achievement by builders and design professionals in all sectors of the residential housing industry including custom homes. BALA is built on the principle that all great homes start with great design, no matter cost or size.

Award levels, including platinum, gold, silver and Home of the Year, will be announced during the NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Nev. on February 20, 2019.
