Premium Vendor Spotlight: How Design House Turns Dreams into Reality

Thanks to our premium partner, Design House, turning your dream home into a reality is what Hagood Homes does best. Design House co-founders Troy Kenny and John Croom not only give home buyers precisely what they want, but they also create a home that’s even more than they could imagine.

Meet the Dream Team


Troy and John specialize in creating custom-designed retreat-inspired homes that reflect the unique charm of the coastal lifestyle while remaining timeless. With a combined affinity for classical architecture and inspiration from the heart and soul of the North Carolina coast and South Carolina’s low country, their goal is for each custom home plan to reflect the history and architecture of its surrounding areas.

Troy is a master of details, with every element thoughtfully planned. From interior trim, colors, and cabinetry to decorative tiles and even swimming pools, Troy closely follows homebuilding and interior trends while keeping her design elements timeless. In addition to co-founding Design House, Troy is also a founder of Hagood Homes and designs every Hagood Home in some of the most desirable communities along the North and South Carolina coasts. Her designs have won numerous Parade of Homes Awards year after year, including the 2021 Brunswick County Parade of Homes New Construction Diamond Award for the Harbour Side Canted model.

The Hagood Process

Troy’s award-winning plans are beautiful on their own, but she also works closely with homebuyers to meet their personalized wishes. This individualized attention is part of Hagood Homes’ finely tuned process.

The Gustat Residence

One of her newest designs, the Gustat residence, is located in Compass Pointe, a beautiful community in Brunswick County, North Carolina.

Compass Pointe Gustat Residence

The Gustat residence features three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, and 4,764 total square footage with an expansive open floorplan designed for function and flow. Its gorgeous exterior aesthetic features decorative gable millwork and multi-level rooflines, and enough character to go around. Inside boasts an abundance of beautiful windows for natural lighting and soaring ceilings.
