TLK Luxury Custom Homes - Custom Made In The Shade

 

Taking their rightful place in the top luxury home trends of 2022  are extravagant covered exterior living spaces.

Since "enjoying the great outdoors" here in Texas demands shading your spaces from the relentless sunshine, luxury home designers have outdone themselves with new shade options for 2022.

After two years of staying inside due to COVID-19, people are craving connection with nature more than ever. Gazing out your window in the morning with that first cup of coffee in the morning, you imagine an outdoor oasis. Julius Caesar felt the same way, so he copied his "front porch" from the Greek portico. Precursor of all porches, the portico originated in ancient Greece as a formal framing device that defined an entryway and created an appearance of authority.

We, much like powerful Middle Kingdom Egyptians, have a longing to domesticate the natural world.  Although, gardens were expensive to build and required a high level of maintenance, gardens were very popular in the Pharaonic period and were built within wealthy households and royal palaces.

Typical gardens in ancient Egypt shared these essential components: an enclosure wall, a water pond, ornate water well or canal, trees, flowers, vegetables and large shaded areas.

Aside from the mere beauty of modern porches and covered patio / deck areas, they are designed specifically to provide the shade we need to survive the solar onslaught.

Not only do shaded areas protect you from the sun, they also help insulate you from exorbitant summertime electric bills.  Porches and covered patios block the sun from shining directly through your windows and heating up your home’s interior.

Let's face it, while shading your home and your guests is definitely the smart move, what we're really after is THE WOW FACTOR.

The luxury, covered outdoor living space designs that TLK has on offer are not your grandmother's back porch or your dad's plastic sheet over a few metal poles, but gorgeous, modern miracles that will fulfill your wildest dreams.

Exclusive Community of Heath, Texas

TLK Custom Homes - Heath TX - Rush Creek Yach Club - TK Kneedler

TLK Luxury Custom Homes is focused on the greater Rockwall County area where the lakeside communities have risen to prominence in the past few years. Heath is one of these premier residential communities that hug the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard. The community of Heath is both peaceful and opulent with a population of about 7,400 people. “For all of Heath’s natural beauty, character and recreational amenities, it is the people that make Heath such a special place.” Brian Berry, City of Heath Mayor

One of the main attractions of Heath is the commitment that the city has made to "preserve a special way of life where rolling hills and the sparkling lake provide a serene backdrop for beautiful neighborhoods and distinctive homes". This pastoral setting gives a feeling of peace and relaxation whilst providing easy access to all the cultural, recreational and business areas of the Metroplex. Heath is truly the best of both worlds.

This year, the City of Heath is developing a new Parks Master Plan and is encouraging the growing Monarch butterfly population in Heath by initiating specially designed gardens in open spaces dubbed Monarch Way Stations. In October 2017, the bike segment of the U.S. Open Triathlon traveled through the City of Heath. That's just the kind of place Heath is.

In addition to a strong community feel and great schools, Heath has a cornucopia of shopping and restaurants just blocks away in Rockwall. All this contributed to TLK Custom Homes time and property investment in the City of Heath. The easy access to the rest of the Metroplex via I30 and Highway 80 was the icing on the cake.
