If you are considering building a new home on your lot in Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, or Prince William Counties of Northern Virginia or in Montgomery County Maryland, come to Stanley Martin Custom Homes! Our floor plans are smart, innovative, and completely customizable.

Before we pick up a hammer or saw at Stanley Martin Custom Homes, we pick up a pen and paper and listen carefully to what you want in a new home built on your lot. We discuss your family, your needs, and the way you live. We figure out what features are most important in your new home and determine the best fit for your budget and location. We even explore your neighborhood to see what kind of home will fit on your lot most naturally. Then we go back and start putting together a plan just for you.

We use higher quality materials and products and our trade partners are true craftsmen who take pride in their work. Michael Schnitzer, President of Stanley Martin Custom Homes, has over 30 years experience in building, has managed the construction of over 2,000 homes, and he has won the award for Best Home Built in America. We have hundreds of floor plans to choose from.

Communication, follow through and problem solving. When they said something would be done, it was. With the few issues we had they were resolved above and beyond what we expected.

My wife and I owned a lot in Loudoun County and decided that we would build a home on the lot. This was the easy part and very soon we realized the sheer challenge we were faced with in bringing together all the pieces that go into building a home…from the permit process through coordinating with all the trades that are involved. Fortunately for us, we discovered Stanley Martin Custom Homes (SMCH). SMCH managed the entire building process guiding us at each step, while still ensuring that the final decision was always ours. SMCH brought to bear their wide experience working with various trades, always ensuring that we got the best in each trade to work on our home. All the folks at SMCH that we interacted with including their management, design studio and construction staff were extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. The final result – our new home – speaks for itself and we are very pleased with how our home has turned out. Thank you SMCH!
