Not all luxury homebuilders are the same,” says Brenda Blake, co-owner and principal at Blake Design. “The truth is, we’re different—very different.” C. Blake Homes is a full-service design and build firm in southern Utah that specializes in high-end desert homes. 

“We understand luxury homes and all aspects of the trade,” she says. “We started small and grew intentionally.” The firm is known for clean design that’s comfortable and makes you want to stay a while. “We design and develop heirloom properties,” says Cary Blake, co-owner. “We’re always seeking the best quality in building materials, appliances and furnishing. We build timeless homes that will stand the test of time.”

Desert homes have unique requirements: careful construction in tune with environmental sustainability, architectural design that harmonizes with the surrounding landscape, and interior design that reflect each homeowner’s lifestyle and aesthetics. This husband and wife duo can help you make the right choices in everything from site planning to products.
