It is that time of year again, and we cannot wait to show you what we have planned. No, it is not the anticipated holidays, it is the Parade of Homes! Each year in October, our dedicated team works tirelessly to showcase some of the best and boldest home designs. And this year is no exception. Homes By Dickerson is here to take it up a notch with an exciting new collection of homes… with character.
Our theme this year is built around homes with character. For each home, we created a fictional character and a story to represent them living their romanticized lives within them. Take a look!
Lagniappe Rosé in Chatham Park
This beautiful Cooper plan embodies 2,029 square feet of living space with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Inspired by the historic scenery of New Orleans and its southern charm, this home will be designed to the nines. Step into a long foyer to find the glorious kitchen with a waterfall island. Then, explore the primary bath with a zero-entry design and linear shower drain. In this home, you will feel as if you have walked into a southern dream where you can sip iced tea on the covered front porch and then glide through the sliding glass doors to the screened back porch. It is the perfect mix of historic and modern touches.
The story of Lagniappe Rosé invites you to meet Valeria Lucentio. She is an accomplished jazz band musician who falls in love easily. If you are lucky, she will play you a song on the guitar and write a letter that romances you.
Maison Des Fleur in 751 South
The Willow floor plan found in this year’s Parade of Homes will have you traveling to a charming English countryside village. With 7 bedrooms and 5 and a half bathrooms spanning across 3,300 square feet, this home is the quintessential dream home for growing families and avid entertainers. The additional living unit above the 2-car garage is ideal for adult children visiting from college or relatives coming to spend a long weekend. It boasts a beautiful view of the future family garden. Additional features like the fireplace with pre-cast concrete and the creative craft room are special highlights of this home.
While looking out the window at the view of the garden, you will find our Maison Des Fleur character planting flowers with her family. Eight-year-old Sadie Brown loves helping her family with the garden. Along with her twin brother and parents, she lives with her sweet grandmother, who enjoys a spot of tea in her in-law suite.
Grand Vin in Wendell Falls
As the name suggests, the Grand Vin parade home is inspired by Napa Valley’s modern wineries. There are a ton of features to love in this customized Bristol floor plan. Firstly, you will find not one, but two cozy fireplaces. One inside the home and one outside. Secondly, before going up the stairs, there is a quaint dog kennel for the favored furry friend in the family. Thirdly, barrel vault ceilings can be found over the wet bar and in the butler’s pantry. Come to the Parade of Homes event to see even more fun features of this home with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 2,930 square feet of living space.
Doctor Talia Stoll is the relatable character of Grand Vin. While she loved her life in Sonoma Valley, CA, she could not help but feel drawn to the sweet southern atmosphere of NC. Missing her family, you can find her in the craft room putting together a package for her niece.
Treelight Chic Townhome in Wendell Falls
In this collection of parade homes, we cannot forget our wonderful luxury townhomes. Nothing says “healthy, active lifestyle” like a townhome surrounded by walkable conveniences. But after a long day, it is nice to come home to a relaxing retreat in a chic styled home. This Park Ave floor plan has plenty of room for entertaining and a 2-car garage with ample storage. Throughout the 2,282 square feet of living space, you will find 3 bedrooms and 3 and a half bathrooms. The 10-foot ceilings create an open, airy feel in the large living, kitchen, and dining room areas. The second floor provides access to an uncovered rear deck where you can relax and take in the fresh air.
In this townhome, the story of Sofia Gonzales comes to life. By day she is a journalist and editor, but by night she is either reading or listening to some good music. She loves her private life here with just her and her Yorkie. However, tonight she is headed to Treelight Square to prepare for her dinner party!
These are just a few of the details of our Parade of Homes floor plans and their unique character stories.
