Building a Custom Home Vs. Buying a Completed Home

Vina Robles Living in Paso Robles

Nestled within the vineyards of Vina Robles Winery, Gran Cielo de Vina Robles is Paso Robles wine country’s premier gated community of custom homes and homesites. Whether you’re choosing to build the custom home of your dreams or buy complete, the choice is yours. Below we’ve outlined the best benefits of both.

Custom Homes

There are 42 custom home sites (all between 1 to 1.6 acres) available at Gran Cielo and several advantages to tailoring your home from the ground up. Beyond personalized amenities and energy-efficient features, your home stands out as exceptionally one-of-a-kind. If you’re someone who takes pleasure in life’s little details, the custom home building experience may be one you love. From layout to landscaping and wine cellars to saunas, building a custom home means having the freedom to design your day-to-day lifestyle.

Completed Homes

When you purchase a completed home at Gran Cielo de Vina Robles, you can move in quickly and avoid thinking about building codes and making detailed decisions because the work has already been done for you. Our preferred builder is Abbott | Reed, so you can expect remarkably beautiful architectural details with lavish landscaping and stunning views.
