Zaveta Custom Homes has been the benchmark for super-premium, luxury construction since 1978. Through the highs and the lows of the housing market, they have been able to consistently elevate their reputation and product and have proven to be the premier name in ultra-high-end homebuilding in Bucks, Montgomery and Mercer counties. The company, founded by Rich Zaveta, built the company’s foundation on craftsmanship, responsive service, and professionalism. Rich credits the consistent quality, design, fit and finish of each Zaveta Custom Homes product to the personnel who work exclusively for the company. There are more than 80 on-staff, full-time tradesmen, some of whom have been with the company for more than 30 years. The depth of personnel and the long-standing relationships with expert artisans, sub-contractors and building wholesalers allow Zaveta Custom Homes to deliver in a very timely manner, whether building a 4,500-square-foot home or a 25,000-square-foot home and multiple structures.
Zaveta Custom Homes is constantly implementing process improvements to further ensure a seamless experience and anticipate clients’ needs. To that end, each client is provided with an on-staff, full-time project manager to oversee on-site, day-to-day operations as well as a designer who is there to lead and coordinate all finish selections. Part of the team will also include Bucks County Cabinetry & Design for custom tailored millwork and cabinetry for uniquely designed kitchens, baths, outdoor kitchens, entertaining spaces, closets, and nearly any other type of custom project a client wants to incorporate into their property. They also have Zaveta Home Services, a property maintenance division which is available to provide ongoing estate- management services for each custom residence well after the Zaveta warranty period is complete.
Zaveta Custom Homes: Experience & Relationships Make the Difference
A master of his trade and an avid outdoorsman in his off hours, Bucks County native Rich Zaveta grew up in the beautiful countryside of Solebury Township. He started working for his father’s construction company during summer vacations in the 1970s. It was there, in the small company consisting of just 12 employees, that Rich fell in love with building homes from the ground up. His father was a firm believer that keeping the entire job in-house was really the only way to ensure a properly built home, so the group of 12 was responsible for start-to-finish construction. Rich knows that start-to-finish in-house construction is what continues to set Zaveta Custom Homes apart from others in the homebuilding industry today.
Rich has worked to create a team at Zaveta Custom Homes that is like family, and in some instances, who are family. By cultivating a staff that cares deeply about the finished product and reputation of the company, Rich knows that he can ensure outcomes for every client that exceed their expectations. He and his son, Travis Hutchison, have worked relentlessly to ensure positive working relationships through mutual respect with township officials – a tremendous benefit to Zaveta clients. Understanding how best to submit permits, what township officials are looking for, how to work within the township guidelines, and having the relationships to ask questions and get answers quickly is invaluable in the building process. This is just one way that Rich has prioritized relationships and doing the right thing throughout his life.
Rich is a lover of historical homes, old farmhouses, barns and traditional Bucks County architecture. Through his many years in the business and because of his passion for homes, he understands how houses should flow and ultimately how owners will use their spaces. He enjoys design and layout, and he does most of the plans for his clients who opt out of using an outside architect. When he’s not at his desk or out in the field, he loves to bike, hike, ride horses and spend time with his family.
Travis Hutchison grew up just outside Carversville, in Central Bucks County, with a focus on outdoor activities. When he was 13, his first job was working for the footing and foundation crew learning the custom construction business with his father, Rich Zaveta. He experienced the fundamentals of ground-up construction, just as Rich did from his father, through hands-on experience throughout high school and college breaks. After he graduated from Bloomsburg University with a degree in Business Management, he moved back to Bucks County and used his degree and real-time experience with Zaveta Custom Homes to begin his career with his father’s company.
Travis recognizes that relationships are the key to any successful business. Through honesty and thoughtfulness, he has proven to landowners, buyer’s clients, township employees, sub-contractors, real estate professionals, and suppliers that he is trustworthy, and that Zaveta Custom Homes will consistently do the right thing. Through his relationships, he has been able to actively seek out some of the most spectacular home sites in Bucks County. He focuses on helpingclients feel comfortable and supported as they move through the design & build process. Further, he is involved in implementing operations systems and protocols that benefit clients as well as ZCH employees which allows project delivery to be on time and on budget.
Travis lives in Tinicum with his wife Megan and two daughters, Charlotte & Adeline. In his spare time, Travis enjoys flying airplanes and working on his farm in Tinicum.
