our JOURNEY

THE INSPIRATION

Imagine walking into a home that leaves you speechless the moment you walk in. A home that feels instantly yours, with an atmosphere that feels like a never-ending vacation. The builders of the ancient world understood that architecture done right has the power to uplift, inspire, and impact emotions. At Legendary Homes, this is the tradition and excellence that we strive for. Our goal is to incorporate unique design elements into each of our homes. From high-end kitchens to outdoor living spaces to high-tech home automation, our home designs allow space for reflection on what matters most. Elements like gas lamps are immediately welcoming and the natural light throughout the house is revitalizing. The device drop zones in every mud room combined with comfortable outdoor environments remind you to unplug, re-center your mind, and enjoy time with your family.

OUR JOURNEY

MEET THE OWNER

I'm Matthew Stanley, the owner of Legendary Homes. My journey into luxury home building was kickstarted by my mom. She was a home builder herself, therefore I have been visiting job sites since I was in diapers. Home building was her true passion, so every two years we would move into a new home and sell our 2 year old home, and then we would move on to the next place and the next house. My love for home design started at a young age when my parents would buy me ice cream and we would drive around looking at houses for inspiration. My mom always jokes that as a little boy, I called colonial homes "coloniums" and still makes fun of me for it. My mom is an integral part of my company, as she still helps with our home designs. She is my biggest inspiration and always told me, "You can be anything you want." I have always taken this piece of advice to heart as I continue to embrace my love for home design.
