CHATHAM, NJ, FEBRUARY, 2006 — Pinnacle Custom offers homeowners the rare opportunity to design their dream home with the guidance of a highly skilled and award-winning team of professionals. Pinnacle Custom aims to service today’s sophisticated homeowner by combining the three most valued standards of excellence: design, quality and elegance. For each masterpiece home, Pinnacle Custom assembles a world-class group of professionals, including architects, sophisticated interior designers and master carpenters to design the unique home each client desires. Pinnacle Custom has built a particular reputation for infusing European “Old World” design into new homes.

Pinnacle Custom’s exquisite designs can be seen across New Jersey. The company is currently building in the most exclusive communities in the state, including Saddle River, Holmdel, Short Hills, Alpine and Warren in Somerset County. Pinnacle has recently begun construction on an estate home in Saddle River that is an architecturally accurate replication of an over-one hundred-year-old English Manor house—complete with natural slate roof shingles and cast stone window and door detailing. Spanning over 18,000 square feet, the home will be completed to the highest standards with hand-crafted exterior styling and stunning finishes. A bell-shaped, seamless lead-coated copper cupola over the breakfast room and a majestic stone tower are just a few examples of the new standard of custom building found in this incomparable home.

Currently underway, Hop Brook Estates in Holmdel is a private, custom community with only ten residences, each able to be designed to reflect its owner’s unique tastes and style. Work will soon begin on a magnificent Georgian-style colonial home and Pinnacle is currently working with other customers designing one-of-a-kind homes. Other beautifully designed and executed homes are available in locations such as Warren in Somerset County, Alpine and Short Hills.

At Pinnacle Custom, the process of building a dream home is designed to be comprehensive and carefree. For many customers, building a home on this scale is a daunting process, but at Pinnacle Custom we truly make the experience delightful and unique. A carefully selected team under the leadership of a project manager is appointed to coordinate the design, select the finest materials and build the home. Pinnacle has gathered an outstanding group of craftspeople with old world skills that include the installation of the most intricate wood trim and moldings, floor inlays, stained glass accents…to name but a few. The group is consistently lauded for their workmanship and excellent customer service.

Pinnacle Custom combines the traditional master builder skills with the latest in new technology to ensure the utmost quality in each home, ranging from new ways to mold copper for intricate detail in a kitchen to master woodworking techniques for that extra touch in the bedroom. Technology also extends to their corporate office, where desktop collaboration software is used to bring the homeowner rapid response communication- ensuring their satisfaction and approval. Pinnacle’s unique intranet allows homeowners the ability to check on the progress of their new home without leaving their office or home. Pinnacle Custom constantly seeks new ways to improve quality and service.

Pinnacle Custom prides itself on being eco-friendly by working with the landscape and surrounding areas to incorporate the majestic views of the outdoors into luxury living, adding yet another degree of sophistication to the already breathtaking homes.

Michael Cantor, President of Pinnacle Custom commented, “The advantage to custom home building is that the homeowner can either start from scratch or work from one of our home collections to truly create the home they have dreamed of their whole life. Pinnacle Custom offers guidance to each homeowner throughout the design process, ensuring our client the satisfaction that has come to be associated with the Pinnacle name. We work diligently to make sure that the entire experience is as pleasant and enjoyable as presentable. Our professionals help to feed each individuals’ innate creativity.”
