Home Builders tailor their homes to the unique features of each individual
lot in an effort to achieve a synthesis of nature and residence. Builders
in conjunction with their architects preserve the natural features of
each lot, such as views and significant existing vegetation and washes,
in order to minimize disruption of the existing environment.
Architectural styles are not dictated by
Estancia Design Guidelines. Instead, Custom Builders select natural
architectural character appropriate to the desert environment and surrounding
community context so that each residence is a unique reflection of each
owner, while still remaining consistent with the image of Estancia.
It is the intent of the Custom Builder to use the architectural standards
and design restrictions set forth in the Estancia Design Guidelines
to preserve, protect and enhance the special environment of Estancia
