Top 3 Houzz Galleries of 2016

Cypress Homes was busy on in 2016.  Here’s a highlight of our top 3 home galleries from last year based on the number of people who saved photos to their Ideabooks.

3. Sageridge on Buser Drive

The reason why this gallery made the top 3 was due to the exterior photos. The Sageridge combines two of our more popular plans, the Sagemore and Ridgewood. There are varying ceiling heights to give the home a larger feel and distinguish each room.

This exterior photo was the reason for the Sageridge being in our top 3 Houzz galleries in 2016. This photo alone had 53 saves. An exterior of a home is what first draws people in. The different shades of grays and the stone give this home a look Houzz users couldn’t refuse to share. This home is a ranch home with a three-stall garage and has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.


“Shingles, siding and stone.” – Haley Tersigni

The rest of the photos of the Sageridge featured on Houzz all had an even amount of shares which pushed this gallery into the top 3.  This photo had 8 saves and once again showcases the exterior of this home. The covered front porch stands out with the stone pillars. The Sageridge is 1,851 Sq Ft.



“Layout and fireplace.” – Marcus Collison

This great room is another highlight of this home. It had 7 saves. This great room features a cathedral ceiling with a ceiling fan in the middle. The realstone gas fireplace is in the center of this room. With a stained wood mantel and accent wall this feature stands out. Large windows flank the fireplace to provide natural light to the space.

2. Amberwood on Jochmann Drive

The Amberwood has been our most popular home for nearly five years. This two-story, four bedroom home checks off a lot of boxes for many homebuyers. On Houzz, this gallery had the second most saved photos of 2016 with 250 saves! The photos in this home with the most saves were all from different bathrooms!


“Medicine cabinet in between sinks.” – Kathie H

This master bathroom  photo alone had 100 saves on Houzz. The vanity is a stand out piece with a large center built-in. The color scheme really ties the bathroom together. The toilet and shower are also separate from the vanity for privacy.

IMG_6032“Center storage. Like the frosted glass look and two doors rather than one (with one, it seems that one person always has the door opening the wrong way for him/her). I also like the two little drawers for small stuff.” – Megan Ryan

The center built-in from the master bath was also a photo saved many times on Houzz. This built-in was saved 29 times. It’s great for for storing bathroom essentials and to keep sinks separated, giving each person their own space.


This powder room was saved to Houzz Ideabooks 20 times. A powder room is an important space because this is the bathroom guests will use. You want it to be both functional and well decorated! This powder room has light colors, mostly white, with a shiplap accent wall behind the sink. The sink is a square under-mount in a furniture piece style vanity.





1. Avalon on Summerview Drive

Untitled design (8)This home was our 2016 Winter Parade Home featured in the Home Builders Association Fox Cities’ Parade of Homes. On Houzz, this gallery had the most saved photos for us this year with 389 saves!


“We were in this home. Like the kitchen / living area layout and cabinet base between. This one also had the Hearth room.” – J S

This kitchen photo was the most saved image from the gallery, 47 times. This kitchen is all white and gray with tons of kitchen features including granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a wine bar !




“FP with a frame ceiling and mantle and wall”

Two images of this hearth room received 33 and 29 shares. This hearth room is also one of our most popular images on Facebook and Instagram. The cultured stone fireplace and cozy set up make this room the perfect place to curl up and read a book.


“under-sink drawer split for pipes – genius.” – Summitt

This master bathroom image on the Avalon gallery shows the unique custom drawers that help maximize space. This image was save 29 times. This bathroom splits up the toilet area from the shower and sinks. The custom drawer and vanity are used to make use of space around the double sinks.
