What Is a Handsome Home?
A home with a rich history, built with pride & craftsmanship not seen in today’s structures. Not just a dwelling, but one built with a harmony of shape, form, colour, and proportion.
"The word handsome in Handsome Properties represents more than a descriptive adjective used in earlier times to flatter a property, home, garden, or architectural element.
Handsome is a family name, a first name used by women on my mother’s side of the family. I was lucky to have known my great-aunt Handsome who was beautiful, strong-willed, intelligent, and independent like her mother and other sisters. These women had a strong, refined manner and commanded attention by their mere presence. I hope that I can live up to legends of these incredible southern women. "
