Vita Modern Homes’ Renan model reflects a West Coast style with contemporary, forward-thinking designs

Featuring a façade adorned with soaring windows, the Renan provides an elegant hint of the natural light that illuminates the inside. Upon walking through the high-reaching glass door, guests are greeted with an immediate glimpse of what the founders of Vita Modern Homes intend when they encourage clients to “think outside the box, dream big, and build modern.”

A glass-walled office is nestled on the left side of the entryway, and a staircase to the right leads to the lower level. The 12-foot-tall-ceilings and open floor plan leads the eyes to a wooded scene in the back worthy of a landscape painting, and visible through the exterior wall of towering windows. In the living area, a wall enlivened with imported ceramic tiles showcases a built-in TV above the fireplace. Steps away, the kitchen is highlighted by quartz countertops; frosted white, Italian-made thermal cabinets; chef-inspired ovens; and a dining area that beckons gatherings around the table with food, drink and an inspiring view.

Developed by Sheri Scott’s Springhouse Architects and designed by the renowned Renan Menninger, the Renan is Vita Modern Homes’ showpiece model. The contemporary, minimalist approach creates warmth and serenity in every inch of its 5,553 square feet of finishing living space. Situated on a wooded cul-de-sac lot, the sanctuary reflects Vita Modern Homes’ emphasis on incorporating three primary elements in every home – quality, clean lines, and light.

Engineered with creative precision that is unique in Southwest Ohio, Vita Modern Homes brings a West Coast style that offers forward-thinking designs.

In present-day architecture, contemporary and modern design styles are often confused. Modern design was introduced in the late 19th century when modernist architects chose to stray from traditional design, which at the time includes Victorian and Edwardian styles, and the Art Deco period in the 1920s. These modern homes showcased strong horizontal composition with spacious and open floor plans, intentional asymmetry, and grand expanses of glass windows and glass walls. The focus was to create a simplified home with an emphasis on function.

The modern style eventually morphed into mid-century modern (the 1950s and 60’s) and postmodernism (1970s and 80’s). Contemporary design borrows elements from modernism and postmodernism and even nods to art deco and futuristic designs. The contemporary style is always changing as it illustrates an ever-evolving style that reflects what is happening today.

By definition, modern and contemporary homes consistently explore new concepts that reflect current lifestyles and material preferences. That represents the Vita Modern Homes mission – in the Renan, and any house it builds.

“Contemporary design forever adapts to the latest trends and includes elements like expansive windows and morphing the natural world into the interior space,” said Renee Lincoln, Vita Modern Homes’ sales agent and customer service director. “Uncluttered spaces with smooth, clean lines and artistic flair conveys a comfortable and calming feeling in every room.”

Listed at $1,069,000 and located in Clearcreek Township’s Country Creek, the 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath Renan boasts other luxurious amenities like the spa-like master bath with floating cabinets, a wine room, a mud room. The centerpiece of the lower level features a bar with a lavish island with a quartz countertop; sleek, scratch-resistant, thermal cabinets from Italy; a beverage cooler, and a wine rack. The lower level also has a theater, a gym and a walkout area to the picturesque woods. At the edge of the driveway, a 300-pound sandblasted stone showcases the address.

Transparency in every step of the planning, design, and building process is an integral part of Vita Modern Homes’ promise to clients. Fixed price contracts offer peace of mind and demonstrate the company’s commitment to integrity. Clients have the freedom to select every detail of their home’s interior and exterior design.

“A custom home signifies the fulfillment of a dream,” Renee said. “Your home is a reflection of you and your family. It represents the culmination of your hard work and success, your lifestyle, your habits and the spirit of your family.

“We are devoted to making the experience rewarding from the initial planning and architectural design, and the groundbreaking to the moment you walk into your completed home for the first time, and long after we hand you the keys.”
