A New Kind of Home.
Coming soon to Summerville.

New Leaf Builders is proud to be selected as a home builder in the Nexton community. Uniquely, Nexton’s master plan feature multiple neighborhoods within the community as a whole, designed to bring communities and families closer together. In order to make the most of 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.

Floorplan I

the Terrace

This 1,421 square foot design is the smallest offering in the Domus Collection, but allows you to live large by offering dual master suites, each connecting directly into the beautiful courtyard space. This home truly embraces the outdoors and lets you connect your spirit with nature by having 4 large french doors and bring the outside in.

In a Roman architecture, a terrace is an external, raised, open, flat area in a garden, near a building.

Floorplan II

the Atria

This 1,705 square foot home boasts two bedrooms with the master suite engaging the courtyard space, and has a second bedroom tucked quietly into the rear of the house for greater privacy. Expansive covered porches promote an easy flow for yourself and guests to embrace the Domus Collection’s unique courtyard living concept.

1,705 SqFt      |      2 – 3 Beds      |      2 – 2.5 Baths

the atrium is where the guests are seated, open in the centre, surrounded at least in part by high-ceilinged porticoes.

Floorplan III

The Hortus

This 1,822 square foot open floor plan blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living. A 3 bedroom home that is is perfect for entertaining guests, and embraces the open living concept that so many families desire. The master suite features a private retreat tucked away from the primary living spaces and guest rooms, yet offers direct access to the courtyard. With multiple options for large sliding doors, natural sunlight breathes life into the interior spaces.

Hortus conclusus is a Latin term, meaning “enclosed garden”. The hortus was located at the back or side of the Domus, and used for dining and socializing.

Floorplan IV

The Culina

This cozy yet full-featured 1,663 square foot design features a gallery hallway leading from the garage to the kitchen and passing by the master suite. The Culina has 2 master suites in the one story option with the primary master bedroom enjoying views and access directly to your own private courtyard.

Floorplan V

The Culina II

The Culina II is a modified version of the standard Culina, offering a larger 2,242 square foot plan and boasting 3 bedrooms. The downstairs open living concept is expanded to allow plenty of room for entertaining. Family members can retreat to the second level which also offers a shared loft space for them to enjoy some personal space or game time for the kids. As with all the Domus Collection, the focus is on you with a master suite offering a large walk-in closet, sitting room area and a private bathroom while still engaging the courtyard space with ample windows on the gallery hallway.

Extra Space for What Matters to You.

Every home in the Domus Collection allows the option of adding an outdoor Cabana or Casita to the courtyard, to enhance the experience for yourself and your guests. These exterior buildings can be upgraded into bedroom suites or  recreation rooms, or simply leave as a shed for additional storage.

Garden Shed

The Garden Shed is simply an exterior storage structure, framed in and ready to be used as a workshop, for hobbies, or simply for additional storage.


The Cabana option is a sitting room building perfect for entertaining. It includes a living room, kitchenette, and full bathroom.


The Casita option is the perfect guesthosue, which includes a bedroom, living room, kitchenette, and full bathroom.
