Cottage Charm in a Modern Home


Cottage Street Custom Homes, LLC, is a real estate investment and custom home building company in Northern Virginia focused on building high quality, character rich homes.  On the outside, our homes are designed to compliment and fit into the neighborhood; homes the neighbors and town are happy to have on the street.  On the inside, our homes are thoughtfully appointed with custom, quality-driven selections; details our clients love.  

Cottage Street has established its reputation one house at a time.  Our homes and their clients speak for themselves. We build houses that become the place you want to call home.


Our Approach

Cottage Street is committed to building high-quality, character-rich homes, not a lot of houses.

What Sets Us Apart from the Rest. 

Thoughtful Design

Cottage Street homes invite people in from the first glance.  Each home is designed carefully and in full consideration of the lot parameters.  Each Cottage Street project is a unique house waiting for the right family to make it a home.  The layout is of utmost importance and we strive to design layouts that use the space efficiently and in a welcoming manner that fits with today’s lifestyles.

Strong Relationships

We have built our reputation slowly and carefully since our first build in Falls Church City in 2012 and are focused on building charming, quality homes – not a lot of houses.  We prioritize relationships with our clients, trades, neighbors, building officials, real-estate agents and foster these relationships before, during and after we hand the keys to a new owner.

Custom High-End Finishes

Cottage Street homes exude custom-level finishes and details from the tile work, hardwood floors, fixtures, furniture-grade built-in cabinetry, and finished basements to the upgraded exterior features such as cementitious siding and wood trim porches.  Each Cottage Street project offers something unique that sets it apart such as a custom breakfast banquette, an antique brick entrance way or perhaps reclaimed barn wood beams.  This high level of finish detail is our minimum standard on all projects and sets us apart from the crowd.



We understand that deciding to build a custom house is a huge investment of your time, resources and energy.  Choosing the right builder for you and your project is critical for the success of your project and your overall experience.  Cottage Street Custom Homes is a highly relational builder and we seek first and foremost to establish a relationship of trust, transparency, integrity, and clear communication with our clients.  We work with our clients from concept and design through the myriad selection options to build the custom home envisioned.
