For an amazing seventh time award-winning Saratoga Springs custom home builder Witt Construction, Inc has garnered a Best in American Living Award (BALA), specifically a Gold Award for a one-of-a-kind custom home up to 4,000 sq. ft.
Often honored in national competitions and locally by the Saratoga Showcase of Homes, the Witt company received the award for its widely praised 2,900-sq. ft. Cottage on the Alley in Saratoga Springs.
Located on a quiet side street this Maine Coast Cottage Co.-designed and John Witt-detailed home has many architecturally significant features. The stone pillars and cedar shakes at the porte-cochere, the curved arch at the entrance, and the paned cottage-style, bay and eyebrow windows add matchless charm. Trimmed with simple yet classic features that maximize space and minimize the use of additional furniture, such as John Witt’s signature built-ins, allow this home to live large yet still have a limited carbon footprint. The open floor plan permits easy access from the kitchen to the living space; a perfect place for entertaining guests.
“This home is a timeless treasure that will excite future builds, maintain its unique style and prepare the market for what is to come,” says company President John Witt. “We are at the beginning stages of change and this home grabs attention. The detail, sensibility and creativeness combine for an exceptional design; a high-end home that’s a lot smaller in size.”
BALA winners are selected by the National Association of Home Builders. The BALA is the country’s foremost residential design competition, the Academy Award of new-home design. Judging is based on appearance, floor plans, how projects relate to local markets, and construction techniques and materials used.
Witt Construction, Inc. won his first two BALAs in 1999 for a Woodlawn Avenue carriage-house-style home in Saratoga Springs. The company won a third in 2002 for its “Country Cottage” built along Denton Road, also in Saratoga Springs. The fourth BALA in 2005 was earned for another “Equestrian Estate” located in the company’s Saratoga Farm neighborhood in Malta. The fifth win in 2006 was for a home in Lakeside at Riley’s in Saratoga Springs. The sixth BALA win in 2007 was for a yet another Saratoga Farms home in Malta.
