Custom Home Builder - Granada Park Sarasota - Craftsmen StyleHere at MGB, we build and design custom homes with you in mind. We take great pride and care in what we do, because at the end of the day, when you turn that key, we want you to feel at home.

Granada Park

That’s what we believe our coastal craftsman style homes at Granada Park do; they make you feel like you were meant to be there, and your guests will agree. Upon entering the grounds, you will find well-maintained, lush landscapes with ponds, community parks, walking paths, and of course, our gorgeous, sustainable, luxury coastal craftsman style homes.

The signature mark of a true craftsman-style home are the big porches and intricate woodwork. These in-demand homes are often described as houses that express “arts and crafts” style ideals through design, architecture, furnishings and decorative arts or statement pieces. We have taken the art of the craftsman home to new heights in our Granada Park community, melding the more traditional design with those of soothing, coastal bungalows.


We are proud of the way these beautiful homes mirror all of the best attributes of their nature surrounding, complete with the luxuries of open, indoor living spaces. In true craftsman fashion combined with our natural, coastal vibe, our homes feature:

  • Multiple roof planes
  • Decorative braces
  • Overhanging eves
  • Generous full and partial porches
  • Porch support columns
  • Open floor plans
  • Natural materials, including: wood, stone, brick glass, tile
  • Handmade decorative objects and statement pieces
  • Functional, aesthetic furnishings and décor (i.e. the home has an overall functional beauty both within the space itself and the objects in it)
  • Built-in woodwork
  • Fireplaces as a focal point for socialization and relaxation outdoors
  • Many windows for natural light
  • Shutter windows
  • Clean, crisp, light interiors and exteriors

Our team worked meticulously to ensure that each individual home within our communities receives personal attention, and the results speak for themselves. An MGB custom home is well built, energy efficient, and inspires luxury and relaxation from the moment you drive up and see the elegant façade.

We have found the key to creating such fine craftsman homes is all in the design and detail. The homes at Granada Park are a true masterpieces – celebrating both charm and style. Among their most desired features, we have designed each home with outdoor living in mind with wide, welcoming porches, on both levels, that gently transition between your connection with nature outside and your cozy space inside.

You will also find intimate outdoor fireplaces, crisp, clean exteriors, and classic arts and crafts details like the beautiful, but subtle, tiling found in our bathroom suites complementing gorgeous quartz countertops. Other features that we love in these designs include such details as the newel post and railings made with custom stain to match the Du Chateax engineered oak wood flooring. All of the custom built-ins create nice, smooth lines that seamlessly transition from room to room throughout each house. This community is one of a kind.

More than just beautiful homes, our coastal craftsman style homes in Granada Park are designed to effortlessly incorporate all of today’s modern luxuries, as each home is a sustainable creation with built-in smart technology. These homes can be seen as works of art that double as functional living spaces. Our goal was to create artistically constructed family dwellings from natural materials with the purpose of evoking a warm and welcoming atmosphere to be shared with family, friends and your community. We believe that each creation within Granada Park does just that, and we are excited to be a part of your new beginning.
