Live like Martha Stewart
Martha Stewart-style homes go on sale in Cary, North Carolina.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Fans of the Martha Stewart now have the opportunity to live more like her...three home designs based on four of the "Domestic Goddess's" own residences are now on the market at a development in North Carolina.
KB Home, the Los Angeles-based home builder, and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, recently unveiled three model homes of their co-branded development, called Twin Lakes, located in Cary, North Carolina, outside Raleigh.

The homes' exteriors draw themes from various Martha residences, in Maine, suburban New York and the Hamptons. All three designs will come in a variety of sizes and floor plans.
Their interiors will feature many a favorite Martha touch, such as wainscoting, crown moldings, oversized dining areas and built-in window seats.
In addition, according to Lindsay Stephenson, spokeswoman for KB, buyers can order their homes with "Martha's Choices," options of her favorite colors and fittings, such as floor coverings, door knobs, cabinet pulls and faucets, and well as china and home decorations.
Even Martha's gardener will get in on the act, creating a variety of landscape designs to match the style of each home.
The plan is for the community to grow to a total of 650 homes on 150 acres. Floor plans range in size from 1,550 square feet to more than 4,000 and are priced starting at $220,000 and topping out at $550,000.
KB and Martha think this could be the start of a beautiful relationship. Already on the docket are plans for another development outside Atlanta to be called Hampton Oaks.
