The signature mark of The Tribute, beyond the incredible lake views, amenities, and trails, is the commitment to architectural excellence. The architectural styles were painstakingly designed to match home elevations with what best complimented the surrounding environment, and the rigorous architectural controls of the community ensure that every street and every home is unique. Not only does the architecture make the community a nicer place to live and play, but it also ensures that the property values only go up because the community is built to be diverse and lasting.
The Tribute currently builds homes in the following styles, among others:
The European Eclectic style includes a hipped-style roof with at least two gables or gabled dormers. These homes have a mix of three exterior textures, including brick, patterned brick, stone, stucco, painted brick, or cedar shakes. Decorative attic vents or other elements are located at the gables. Any combination of at least three architectural elements including stone quoins, cast stone details, cedar shutters, coach lights, window planting boxes, tile header detail, cedar corbel detail, and/or chimneys with decorative pots are provided.
The English Cottage style features a hipped style roof with at least two gables or gabled dormers. Gables have decorative vents or similar elements. Cast stone quoins and/or natural stone wainscot are on the front façade of the house. Windows on this style will have stone lintels and window planting boxes. These homes also boast a chimney with a decorative pot.
The English Tudor style is highlighted with a gable-style roof and has at least two gables or gabled dormers. Areas above the eaves of the gables have half timber with a herringbone or basket weave brick pattern infill. A stone wainscot, plus stone window surrounds, diamond pattern divided light windows and window planting boxes are found on these homes. In addition to chimneys with paired decorative pots, a stone surround Tudor arch is incorporated in the front entry of this style.
The Mediterranean Eclectic style offers new features added to classic ones to create a distinct look. Mediterranean style homes draw you in with stucco exteriors, gardens, fountains, courtyards, ornate wrought iron details on gates and window grates, red tile roofs and often carved entry doors.
The French Provincial style is formal with a hipped style roof featuring two gabled or arched dormers and a symmetrical front façade. At least 40% of the exterior of these homes will be composed of smooth cut stone, with the remaining wall area allowed as brick or stucco. Chimneys with paired decorative pots, stone quoins, and stone window surrounds are used, as well as a segmental arch in the main entry. A decorative frieze will be placed below roof eaves and copper gutters, and downspouts finish out the stately look.
The most telling feature of the French Eclectic style is its roof. It is steeply pitchd, hipped, and the eaves are often flared. This style may be either symmetrical and quite formal, or asymmetrical and somewhat rambling. Other features may include gabled, hipped and arched dormers. Roof dormers are common as well.
