About Us

The creation of custom luxury homes isn't just a profession for Loy and Shideh Lowary. It's their passion - and their enthusiasm for the job is as apparent as their undeniable skill. "Our homes are more than places to reside," explains Shideh. "We create sanctuaries for the senses - one-of-a-kind homes that reflect the unique personalities of our clients. They bring their histories, tastes, and dreams. We add the creativity and skills that can transform ordinary spaces into environments that nurture their souls."

The luxurious homes they have built in some of the most affluent areas of Dallas are testaments to a job exceedingly well done. In stark contrast to the conservative, signature styles adopted by many custom home builders, Loy and Shideh pride themselves on having no boundaries when it comes to creativity. "We can do everything, from romantic Spanish Mediterranean or traditional Old World , to English cottage, contemporary, or highly eclectic, but it's our creativity that sets us apart - creativity that's evident in the details and features we build in."

The details to which Shideh refers are amenities that truly define these homes as personal retreats. They include lush, elegantly appointed master baths that extend into massage room areas with dry and wet saunas. Their expertise in gracefully incorporating luxuries into residential interiors is so widely known, their homes were featured in a documentary about how to create an at-home spa. Swim-up bars, brick pizza ovens, custom wine cellars nestled within spacious walk-out basements, and architectural features that highlight the owners' most prized possessions are just some of the luxury custom features that Ventura does so well.

As expected in homes of this caliber, no opportunity for enhancing comfort is overlooked. The couple routinely enlists the services of the region's most highly regarded craftsmen and artisans to create one-of-a kind elements such as hand-carved woodwork, impressive stone masonry, intricate iron work, and beautiful stained glass. Their homes are so memorable and sumptuous, it's not unusual to hear them compared to luxurious resorts, and more than one client has declared that few resorts they've ever visited can compare with their Ventura dream home.

Loy and Shideh's passion, creativity, skill, and meticulous attention to every detail have been recognized with numerous industry awards and featured in the Dallas Morning News and several publications, including The Wall Street Journal, McSam's, Traditional Home , Pinnacle , Decorator Showcase , Dallas Business Journal, Builder, D Magazine and Park Cities People Newspaper.

Ventura Custom Homes can be found in the Dallas area's most prestigious neighborhoods, including Plano , Highland Park , University Park and Preston Hollow. Homes range upwards in size from 5,000 square feet, with prices starting at around $1 million.

What is the couple's goal with each dream home project?

"Our goal is to create sensuous environments that our clients can claim as their own personal sanctuaries homes that are so rejuvenating and inviting, they never want to leave! In the process, we go above and beyond to make sure the entire process is wonderfully memorable ."
