For many families, building a custom home means creating a space that can deliver both luxury and functionality all under one roof. This takes exceptional design expertise, and Omaha-based Pohlad Custom Homes, Inc. has masterfully intertwined both of these elements and more with its new Sierra two-story model.
This single-family home delivers a modern farmhouse twist, while still encompassing many traditional accents. As is the case with all projects, Richie Pohlad, co-owner of Pohlad Custom Homes, Inc., said attention to detail was key throughout the build process of this model. From the rustic cedar timber on the exterior of the home to the herringbone tile backsplash in the kitchen to the deco wall and see-through fireplace in the main floor office, meticulous design remained at the forefront.
Pohlad, a framer by trade, operates the business alongside his brother, Jay, who is a trim carpenter by trade. The pair have been in the construction industry for more than two decades and officially established the business in 1997. Their wives Julie and Sara—who are both licensed real estate agents—handle listings for clients, creating a convenient one-stop-shop operation.
“We truly assist clients from start to finish with finding the right location, designing the plan, drafting estimates, and the entire construction process,” Pohlad said. “We love taking on new projects and nothing is too small or too big for us. In fact, we’ve built $500,000-to-4-million-dollar homes.”
In addition to custom homes and renovation projects, Pohlad Custom Homes has also worked within the villa niche. An upcoming project includes a 24-villa community located at George B. Lake Parkway and Highway 31, which is expected to be buildable in the fall of 2022.
Sticking to deadlines and focusing on a hands-on approach throughout the design and build is something the Pohlad family takes seriously. Additionally, the family-run business has worked with many of the same subcontractors over the years, which has created a reliable and harmonious process for all involved in the construction.
“Our clients really get to know us, as they communicate directly with us—the builder—on a daily basis,” Pohlad said. “We aim to create relationships with our clients that are lifelong and we want to always be the builder that they trust and refer to their friends and family.”
Pohlad said a great amount of creativity and unique features go into each and every build, but one element always remains the same—quality. For example, high-end features are automatically included in all homes, including the Sierra model.
“We stand behind our product and remain very consistent in our work,” said Julie Pohlad. “We have repeat clients who continue to come back because they’ve seen what we can do and they know that we will deliver.”
Each space throughout this particular home was thoughtfully designed to not only be exceptionally easy on the eyes but also easily inhabitable. A few especially sought-after elements in this five-bedroom and five-bathroom property include the expansive master with en suite and walk-in closet, a chef-inspired kitchen—which boasts a gas range with custom hood vent, an oversized center island, marble countertops, and stainless-steel appliances—as well as the open concept great room that makes entertaining effortless.
Other coveted features include the covered back patio opening out to the vast green space that doubles as additional hosting space or a private retreat spot, as well as the lower level that houses a wet bar and large living area. Additionally, the three-car garage and covered front porch add to the home’s exterior appeal.
This beautifully crafted model property is located at 2303 S. 220th Avenue. For additional information or to schedule a private showing, contact Julie Pohlad of RE/MAX Results at 402-669-5018.
