Design Guidelines

PROMONTORY PHILOSOPHY

Promontory’s Governing Architectural sophistication is expected in every Promontory design, and a consistently unified respect for natural wildlife and for the historic ranch environment so distinct to Promontory’s character and vision must be honored. Specifically, the architecture in Promontory’s custom homes must evoke qualities of authenticity, proportionality, craftsmanship, sustainability, and social sophistication. Heavily textured material, deeply recessed windows, large, protective overhangs, staggered and shapely roof formations, strong, sturdy architectural massing, rustic and natural earth tones, and the significant use of stone and wood are only some of the primary design elements required on all Promontory home sites.

The Promontory Design Guidelines serve to address and to carefully monitor this important design philosophy, as they are used to evaluate every architectural plan considered within the Promontory Community. They are intended to provide clear direction to owners, architects, and builders alike as they ensure the compatibility of all design philosophies which may take shape throughout Promontory currently and in years to come.

DESIGN REVIEW FINAL RELEASE REQUIREMENT/PENALTY FOR FAILURE TO COMPLY

Several Owners at Promontory with completed homes have not obtained the required Final Inspection and Final Release from the Promontory Architectural Review Committee. The Conservancy specifically requires this Final Inspection and Final Release in order to ensure that each completed home at Promontory complies with the Design Guidelines, with previous Architectural Review Committee correspondence/approvals, with home site landscaping/re-vegetation requirements, and with the policy of making all violation corrections within a reasonable period after construction completion.
