True to its name, New Old is a company that both values the past and looks toward the future.  Troy and Mary Ludemann’s passion for designing goes back to Mary’s father, Tom Murtaugh, who began building custom homes in 1978. Troy and Mary spent years working alongside Tom, and it is his legacy of hard work and superior craftsmanship that has made New Old the success it is today.

New Old adheres faithfully to the time-honored principles of quality, integrity and customer care, relying on both solid, tried-and-true industry knowledge and new, outside-the-box solutions to help bring their clients’ visions to life. This combination of values, tradition, and innovation has earned New Old numerous awards, local and national recognition, as well as a loyal client base.

Troy and Mary bring great warmth and character and a balance of old and new elements to every home they build, no matter the style. They pride themselves on achieving their clients’ goals with a thoughtful, collaborative approach and great attention to detail.

New Old values family, and values its clients. To Troy and Mary, it’s never just about building a house – it’s about creating a forever home, and a legacy that endures.


Styled after a classic English country estate, the Welsh House possesses all the luxury of a high-end custom home, with all the charm of an English countryside hideaway.  The home’s pastoral setting beckons those looking to enjoy a simpler life; it’s a place for long rambling walks with the dogs, horseback rides through green pastures, and hours of outdoor play for children.  Upscale, yet always welcoming and gracious, the home itself is a timeless and beautiful place for respite that deftly balances classic style with fresh and new elements.

Thoughtfully designed for versatility and comfort, it welcomes any type of family. The wealth of detail in this home continuously delights. There are thoughtful practical elements throughout, including his and hers dressing rooms, a built-in dog bed, and a family “command center.” Touches of luxury appear at every turn, from the Italian marble countertops to the Parisian-style Master bathtub to the timeworn French Oak floors. But what really gives the home its heart and soul are its faithful touches of English country charm, such as the brass tea kettle fixture, the extra-long drop-zone bench perfect for removing muddy Wellies and the classic Aga cast iron range. This is truly a home to inspire, delight and welcome one and all.
