Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) March 18, 2008
An emerging trend among affluent luxury home buyers toward greater convenience and more immediate access to the lifestyle they desire has spurred Scottsdale-based Discovery Land Company, one of the leading private-club and community developers in North America, to create two new divisions - Discovery Builders and Discovery Home Services.
"The high-end of the luxury market used to be dominated by buyers looking to design and build custom homes. That's really changed in the last few years," said Michael Meldman, Chairman and CEO of Discovery Land Company. "Now many of our buyers are looking for immediate access to the lifestyles they desire. They've built custom homes. Their primary residences are custom homes, but for a second or third home, they want a streamlined path to luxury without sacrificing any of the style and quality to which they are accustomed. That's what Discovery Builders and Discovery Home Services provide."
Discovery Builders is the company's architectural and homebuilding division. It coordinates the design and construction of distinctive finished residences, including luxury homes, villas, lodges, cottages, cabins and casitas for each Discovery property. These are crafted on par with the finest custom homes, and each is thoughtfully designed to accentuate the natural beauty and heritage of its surroundings. Over the past year, Discovery Builders has sold more than $400 million in finished product across the company's 12 actively selling properties. The average sales price for these homes was $3 million, and the average time from purchase to occupancy was 12 months, giving buyers the most direct path to enjoying the Discovery lifestyle of their choice.
Discovery Home Services provides comprehensive, custom interior furnishings for buyers of Discovery Builders' homes. Like the homes, the interiors are tailored to bring out the innate beauty and distinctive lifestyle of each Discovery property. Accomplished interior designers carefully ensure only the finest furniture, luxurious fabrics and designer series house wares are used in the homes.
The turn-key designs include upholstered furniture, case goods, rugs, mattresses, outdoor furniture and bed linens sourced from the world's top manufacturers. The accessory packages provide all the essentials from kitchen and bath linens to dishware, flatware, small appliances and utensils. Even basic consumables and cleaning supplies are included. And, finally, state-of-the-art audio and television components provide the foundation for home entertainment selections.
Discovery Home Services designers meet several times with each family to guarantee the home furnishings reflect their individual interests, tastes and preferences. Afterwards, Discovery Home Services experienced staff will manage every detail from procurement to delivery and installation. Thus, providing Discovery buyers with a streamlined, worry-free process that allows them to begin enjoying their new home as quickly as possible.
Currently, Discovery Land Company has 16 properties with 12 actively selling. These include: Kukio and Kohanaiki on the Big Island of Hawaii; El Dorado and Chileno Bay Club in Los Cabos, Mexico; The Hideaway and Madison Club in La Quinta, California; Mirabel and Estancia in Scottsdale, Arizona; Gozzer Ranch on the shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene in northern Idaho; Iron Horse in Whitefish, Montana; Cordevalle in San Martin, California; Vaquero in Dallas, Texas; Spanish Oaks in Austin, Texas; Mountaintop in Cashiers, North Carolina; and Baker's Bay in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas.
Each of these properties is located in a proven destination that is easily accessible and renowned for its natural beauty. Discovery adds value to these destinations by offering exceptional member service and creating communities that are both respectful towards and enhanced by their natural settings. This enables Discovery's members to develop meaningful ties by blending their lifestyles and family structures into the surrounding environment.
