Sneak Peek at Holiday Southern Home

You saw it here first! This is a sneak peek at the show home that will be profiled in the Holiday Southern Home magazine!

While most people will have to wait for the magazine to be issued in October, we’re able to offer you this “first look” because DaVinci Roofscapes contributed the composite roof tiles for the remodeling project.

In the works for more than a year, the home sports a Bellaforté Slate tile roof in Smokey Gray VariBlend. Embraced by flowing gardens, the English country style house draws envious glances from everyone in the neighborhood.

“We couldn’t imagine a better, more authentic-looking roof than the Bellaforté Slate,” says Phyllis Hoffman DePiano, chairman of the board/CEO of Hoffman media. “We’re so pleased with how the entire home turned out that after profiling it in-depth in our Holiday Southern Home magazine we have plans for featuring it in our Cottage Journal, Southern Lady and Victoria magazines. We want everyone to see how perfectly the home turned out and how the DaVinci product fits so naturally with the stone exterior.”

The Alabama house has a breathtaking view of the mountains, which sets the background for outdoor cooking and dining. Internationally-recognized master designer Jeffrey Dungan is the architect for the project. Dungan set out to create a new energy efficient home that has the look of a home hundreds of years old.

“Jeffrey truly put his mark on this home,” says DePiano. “He specified a synthetic slate for the roof and then we picked up the ball and selected DaVinci. The composite slate product definitely brings charm and efficiency to this house. Just strolling through the stone-walled garden or wandering up the path, you glance back at the house and would swear there’s natural slate roofing overhead.”
