Mark Sumada is at it again! His Drummond style home in the Palisades subdivision in Riverside was chosen Pick of the Parade – Gold, the most coveted award the Parade judges present. He also won the silver Distinctive Design Award.
With over 40 years-experience in the home building industry, he has first-hand knowledge of all phases of construction.
“This Drummond style home was actually first built in the 1800s, with low-pitched roofs, which adds to today’s contemporary look and elevation,” Mark explained. “Part of the reason I designed this house is because I wanted to create a home that empty nesters could downsize to but much to my surprise the acceptance and desire of millennials starting families wanting this style of floor plan. It is a open ranch plan with 3 bedrooms on the 1st floor, vaulted ceilings, stylish and the contemporary feel that is progressive as the times we live in today. We’ve expanded the square footage to the basement which affords a lower level finish with so many options, another great room with bar and entertainment center, the ability for three more bedrooms, an exercise room and still have storage. The lighting, 5 star energy package, upgraded tile, state of the art automated electronic package and many other progressive features makes this home, like all the others we design and build, one that you won’t tire of and appreciate for years to come.”
John Barth, Barth Real Estate, has worked with Mark for nearly 30 years, and he and his brother, David, market seven Northland communities, including The Palisades, Montebella, Bella Ridge, Thousand Oaks, Seven Bridges, Silverbrooke and Highland Meadows. All feature extraordinary water features with waterfalls and fountains, green spaces, walking trails, multiple pools and clubhouses.
“This home is located within ten minutes of downtown in a premier location, featuring Park Hill schools,” John noted. “Mark’s contemporary style fits perfectly within our subdivision concepts.”
“We build our homes with care, insight and most of all foresight. We look forward, take peoples emotions and lifestyles and project the future not the past. I believe that the judges saw the quality, our intentions and based their decisions on what we created. We had nothing but great and gratifying acceptance from young and old touring this contemporary home during the parade. But most of all, our most satisfying feeling is the comment of our past clients “We love our home, thank you!”.
Our mantra is and always will be: “Personal supervision from design, to build, to completion and ever after.” Mark and his son Ben personally supervise all phases of construction and attend all meetings from the design phase, through all inspections, cabinet meetings, tile meetings, electrical and plumbing layout and are available for their clients at every step. Their goal is to be their personal assistant. Suma provides the shell and help their clients achieve their dream. “We won’t build 50 homes a year, you can’t provide the attention to detail, quality and most of all the time that a customer needs to build our homes. We take to much pride in our customers commitment to sacrifice their investment. We appreciate our customers faith in us and we need to deliver.”
Suma is also state of the art in design. They provide 3D renderings in real time for any feature you may need to visualize their dream during the design phase and throughout construction. Interactive walk-throughs with the ability to add or delete any feature in their homes. The ability to change any feature: from colors, adding windows, landscaping, siding, changing room sizes and anything you can imagine that pertains to their home. “It’s really fun to watch this in real time and our customers really appreciate what a tool, convenience and helpful aid it is to visualize making their dream come true.”
We think you will appreciate all the features of this award winning home. Please come and visit this home to discover what the new possibilities you can have with Suma Design.
This model home can be custom built anywhere and is approved in all Barth communities.
