Completely Custom - The Campillays


Steven and Jen Campillay: Georgian-style home

More than a decade ago, New York transplants Steven and Jen Campillay made their way from the five boroughs to the rolling hills of Western Monmouth County, set down roots in Holmdel, and planned on building a new home there - but there was certainly no sense of urgency on their part. The Campillays were enjoying a comfortable living space in a wonderful  neighborhood, and decided to take as much time as needed to pick out the best location and plan and craft every detail of their  eventual dream home.
During those first few years in town, Steven and Jen would scout for the ideal parcel of land to build a permanent place for their growing family, and in 2005, finally decided and purchased a nearly four-acre lot at the far end of a newly paved cul-de-sac. Even still, they were not in any rush – as it would take the Campillays another four years to move into their new home. After procuring the perfect spot, Steven and Jen set out on a journey to construct their idea of a perfect home. The couple worked closely with an architect to plan out every nook and cranny of what would eventually turn out to be a 9000 squarefoot, center hall, Georgian-style home. They wanted a floor plan that was family friendly and a design that was classic, yet comfortable and livable. They settled  on a design with a circular flow on the first floor for smooth transitions from one room to another, with designated areas of more  formal space and casual areas near the rear.

After the plans were set, they put their dream in the hands of master custom builder, Jack Giglio of Giglio Builders in Rumson. Every bit of material used in the construction was researched and chosen by the Campillays - the marble tile, herringbone brick,  kitchen cabinetry, pocket doors, custom moldings and radiant heat floors, right down to the smallest details like the style of  hinges used for the basement door. All of their careful planning and patience was rewarded in 2009, when Steven and Jen, and  their two young daughters, moved into the home that they had envisioned for all those years.

 

The Campillays refer to the grand foyer of their home as the “Rotunda.” A substantial octagonal, rustic chandelier soars 30 feet above the  entrance way, hanging from the center of a faux-finished dome that gives an illusion of being able to view the bright midday sky. 


 

To help achieve a desired “Georgian” feel on the outside, handmade red bricks were custom ordered and trucked from the south to skin all  sides of the exterior. The heavy double entry doors with hinged “peep” windows are just as detailed and solid as the rest of the home.


 

In the great room, sloped ceilings draw the eye upward and create a reverse dormer effect, slanting away from the interior balcony and the arched windows that top three sets of French doors leading to the back patio. Jewel tones enrich chocolate brown walls, deep navy window  treatments, and burgundy and gold accents.


 

Bright chandeliers hang from coffered and domed ceilings in the kitchen and adjoining breakfast nook area. A variety of textures was  achieved with imported tiles, stone and solid wood-topped islands, antiqued finishes and two deep farmhouse style sinks. Kitchen design  by Richard Clift of Signature Kitchens, Staten Island.


 

The decor of the home office is one of Jen’s favorites. A lone Queen-Anne style desk stands surrounded by built-in wood cabinets and detailed paneling, all washed in a distressed emerald green, capped off with a faux-finished ceiling treatment to echo the feel of hammered tin.


 

At the far end of the center hallway is a small room decked out in wood, brick and tile. Separate temperature control here makes it the right place to house the Campillay’s growing wine collection.


 

The first floor of the home is separated in half, length-wise by a long center hallway with a barrel ceiling. Gleaming, wide-plank hardwood floors and modeled golden wall treatments give this dramatic space a distinct Tuscan flair.


 

The formal dining room exudes a classic style with coffered ceiling and seating for up to 12. A fireplace warms the family during winter  holiday dinners.


 

The family spends movie nights or sports-related get-togethers upstairs in the media room. Automated black-out window shades help set the mood and a large projection screen, fully stocked bar and even a popcorn machine complete the full-sensory entertainment experience.
