A New Kind of Home.
NOw Building in Summerville.

New Leaf Builders is proud to be selected as a home builder in the Nexton community. Uniquely, Nexton’s master plan features multiple neighborhoods within the community as a whole, designed to bring communities and families closer together. In order to make the most of this living experience, we have designed an entirely unique new series of homes, the Domus Collection.

A new style of home, designed over two thousand years ago.

A classical home design becomes new again with the Domus Collection from New Leaf Builders. Based on the Roman architectural style, the Domus was an urban villa featuring an open courtyard of peaceful gardens and pools, and a place where residents could entertain guests out of the home.

Your home. Your sanctuary.

Each home in the Domus Collection features a private, enclosed courtyard to provide a unique indoor/outdoor living experience. All of the major living spaces include courtyard access or views. Entrance is gained from the street via a covered loggia into the courtyard, giving homeowners and guests a true sense of arrival. Entertain guests in a fun, relaxed setting or enjoy a private glass of wine in your own secret garden.

The Roman domus was much more than a place of dwelling for a Roman familia. The domus included multiple rooms, indoor courtyards, gardens, and beautifully designed interior.
