MEET THE TEAM - ALAIR HUNT COUNTRY

MAKE A STATEMENT


 
Your home is a reflection of all your favorite things: the family and friends that surround you, the experiences and memories collected by you, and the special touches that make everything feel right. At Alair Hunt Country, we take the time to get to know you. From concept to completion, we endeavor to exceed your expectations. Thoughtful planning. Intelligent design. Personal touch. That’s the difference.
 

A SIMPLE PHILOSOPHY


We believe that excellent craftsmanship and service are the minimum you deserve. Every Alair Hunt Country home is built as if it were our own. It begins with rigorous planning, design, and budget management, removing the prospect of spiraling delays or escalating costs. We then assemble an incredible team and the most hands-on project management of anyone in the homebuilding business. It’s the one-on-one relationship that you deserve. Why? Because that’s how we’d want our home built.

Matthew Bowe

Matthew Bowe

Partner

Matt has had the opportunity to design and build over 350 custom homes or remodels since establishing Matthew Bowe Design Build, now Alair Homes Hunt Country, in 2005. He enjoys the construction process as much as he did when he first began and believes it is not enough to simply build a superior home – the client must also receive an exceptional experience.

This belief, and his commitment to a genuine and rewarding relationship with his clients, is the secret sauce that has brought success and support from the community. For Matt, the ultimate indication of success is being welcomed into his clients’ homes after construction is complete.

Matt hails from Long Island, New York and moved to Virginia in the 1988 not long after graduating from Purdue University with a degree in Building Construction Technology.

He currently serves as the Board Chair of the Loudoun Habitat for Humanity. In his free time, Matt and his wife Nan escape to their weekend home on Virginia’s Northern Neck. They love to entertain family and friends while enjoying all things waterfront.
