“Vu offers upscale living with a modern sensibility, influenced in part by my own experiences as both a luxury homebuilder and family man turned empty-nester. These details are evident in floorplans that make the kitchen, the heart of the home, both highly beautiful and functional; significant open space for entertaining and socializing; and self-contained guest suites ideal for visiting family and friends – all topped with
