Southern Luxury Homes is a premier custom home builder at Reynolds Lake Oconee. Kevin Aycock, President of Southern Luxury Homes, leads a team of experts focused on innovation and quality to provide clients a personalized, high-end experience, bringing to life every detail of their dream home.

With more than 450 homes to their name in the luxurious club and resort, Aycock and Southern Luxury Homes have established themselves as the go-to resource for custom homes that stand out. The latest project, Homesteads, is no exception. Unlike anything in Reynolds Lake Oconee, the sprawling 10,000-square-foot home has a footprint and features. It’s designed in the shape of an ‘X,’ with each of the four separate wings offering unique spaces to escape. The home comprises five bedrooms, including double primary suites, five and a half bathrooms, dining and living spaces, a golf simulator that occupies one entire wing and ample room for relaxation and taking in the views. It’s impossible to miss the views – nearly the entire waterfront back of the home is glass.


At the convergence of the four wings sits a two-story living area with floor-to-ceiling windows. “The most interesting part of this home is the sheer amount of glass we’ve worked into the exterior,” said Aycock. “The entire rear wall is 40 feet by 35 feet of glass supported by steel.” The remaining exterior is made up of stucco and limestone, and the outdoor living space provides as much function and luxury as the interior. The 50’ pool with an infinity edge gives the illusion of being in the lake but from the comfort of the home. The pool features a tanning ledge and spa, with plenty of room for lounging on the limestone patio surround.


For the cooler months, the sunken fire pit with lush built-in seating is the perfect spot to take in a sunset or unwind at the end of the day. The outdoor kitchen offers all amenities for alfresco dining, including a sizable 48-inch grill, pizza oven and fridge. Everything about this home is custom-built and unique, and nearly every feature has allowed Kevin and his team to explore cutting-edge design techniques. “We have pushed the envelope on what people are used to building,” said Aycock. “That has been challenging but rewarding because we have found the best of the best in terms of talent.” This Homestead has a one-of-a-kind footprint and exterior, and the interior is no less impressive. White oak floors and solid hickory doors throughout the space bring a complementary warmth to the expansive glass and steel exterior. All of the cabinetry in the home, including the bunk beds in a room designed specifically for the client’s grandchildren, is handcrafted by Southern Luxury Homes. “This home is going to stand out. You won’t see anything like this here or anywhere in the Southeast,” said Aycock.


This extraordinary property will be complete in Fall 2023 and is already a topic of conversation in the home building industry and the Reynolds community alike. Aycock and his team have taken on the challenge of creating a space that, like all of their homes, is completely customized for their client while pushing the limits of design while they do it.
