Regardless of the home or magnitude of the project, the Dunhill Team treats each project with the utmost care and attention to quality and detail.

 

Dunhill’s Founder offers a wealth of experience. This has been the key to Dunhill Companies’ successful project management. Charlie Crovo, Dunhill’s founder, grew up in the building industry on Cape Cod. During his high school years he worked as a roofer. After finishing at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Charlie attended Wentworth College where he received his General Contracting License. From there he moved to Martha’s Vineyard where he worked for an established framer and general contractor. On the Vineyard he learned the basics of framing and carpentry. When Charlie’s boss broke his leg, he asked Charlie to work as his assistant. This proved to be a fantastic learning opportunity for Charlie. Charlie quickly learned the ins and outs of project management and running an efficient job from start to finish.

 

In 1996 Charlie moved back to Cape Cod and built his first house on spec. This modest Osterville home was the first to exemplify Charlie’s commitment to quality. The home sold quickly and Charlie soon moved onto another speculative home. This project, overlooking Lewis Bay in Yarmouth, proved to be far more complex. Here Charlie learned to deal with the challenges of building on the water and abutting environmental conservation area. Charlie’s Yarmouth project proved to be another success and lead him toward custom home building.

 

Even during Charlie’s earliest projects as a custom home builder, his clients were impressed with his performance. Charlie is infamous for being hands on, always professional, a great communicator and constantly striving towards the overall success of a building project. Clients also boast that Charlie handles challenges directly, and are also impressed by the way he communicates with their architects, decorators and landscape architects. His experience is evident not only to home owners but to Charlie’s peers in the building industry.

 

Charlie’s knowledge also extends to commercial properties. He has managed the construction of a prominent office plaza with gas station and restaurant in downtown Osterville. Additionally, he completed The Residences at 615 Main Street in July of 2005. This thirteen unit condominium complex, with one restaurant, in Hyannis is highly regarded by the town of Hyannis as an effort to help restore the town’s Main Street. Dunhill Companies’ clients can rest assured that they have a top notch, experienced team building their home.
