Go Classic or Contemporary with Whitby Meadows

If you choose a Paradise Home there are even more great things to choose from. From finishes to design, you get to decide how you want your dream home to be built. One of the biggest choices you’ll make is whether you want a classic or a contemporary home. Both are stunning in their own right, but which speaks to your aesthetic, lifestyle, and perspective more? We’ll help explain the difference to make your decision a little easier.
