A Ranch-style Standout
J & J Custom Homes took home the bronze medal in the New Construction category, as selected by a panel of five judges. The Roosevelt – a ranch style MBA Parade of Homes Gold Medal winner in 2022 – was built in the Town of Lisbon’s Twin Pine Farm and stands out in the contest as a comparatively modest entry, while boasting luxurious aesthetics and a wealth of custom details.
Milwaukee Magazine highlighted the floor-to-ceiling fireplace and the dining room’s walnut accent wall on the 4-bedroom ranch’s main level. They noted these as expressions of the design’s elegant blend of form & function.
The wine cellar in the lower level along with the butler’s pantry & large canted garage also stood out for the judging panel.
