Our own Christine Langdon and her partner, builder Chris Darhun’s Ventnor home was recently featured in Philadelphia Style’s Modern Luxury Spotlight. Below is an excerpt from the article:
Tucked away in a year-round residential area of Ventnor Heights, New Jersey, is a brightly colored, orange home reminiscent of houses found in Charleston, South Carolina. It’s the brainchild of realtor Christine Langdon and her partner, Christopher Darhun, who designs and builds unique homes in the Philadelphia suburbs and on the Main Line. His next project is to build the couple’s new 8,000-square-foot, barn-style home overlooking Springton Lake Reservoir in Newtown Square.
“We have gone to Charleston every year since we’ve been together,” Langdon says. “We love it there. Rather than build a modern gray or tan house, we were inspired to create a home that reminded us of the South and that would impart the shore with a fresh infusion of color.” Virtually all materials used to appoint the house were custom made in South Carolina, including the handmade Savannah-gray bricks, exterior gas lights, flooring, furniture and tabby-style fireplace made from crushed oyster shells.
