Visit Our Luxury Home Model

We invite you to visit our new lakefront model home on Lake Norman, at Pearl Springs Village in Sherrills Ford (opening in December), to take a look at our award-winning floor plans and start the process of designing your dream home.

  • Find the custom home neighborhood that’s perfect for your lifestyle.

  • View our interactive plan library of award-winning designs.

  • Create a unique home plan designed for you by our team of architects (who will have a floor plan back to you within a week).

Owner/President Tom Arndt is a hands-on builder who will walk your lot to assess its opportunities and challenges and will work with our sales and architecture team to design the unique elements that will make this your home. When you decide to build with us, our talented interior designers will help you choose everything for your custom home – all in one studio. And once building is underway, your own construction manager will be on site, working with local contractors and custom craftsmen to build you a home of lasting value. We’d love to show you what we can do! Arthur Rutenberg Homes, 4986 Slanting Bridge Road, Sherills Ford: Mike Ingold, Sales Consultant: 704-649-6781
