Homes By Dickerson is showcasing five spectacularly-designed homes at the 2021 Triangle Parade of Homes – and one is just right for you. What’s your perfect pairing? Do you love dark chocolate truffles and a lively board game? “Missing Manhattan” might be the one for you. Does a warm cup of tea with a side of macarons tickle your fancy? You’ll love getting lost in “Mary Alice’s Wonderland.”


You can see these five distinctive homes — and all their delightful details — up close and personal October 2-3rd, 8-10th, and 15-17th in the 2021 Triangle Parade of Homes. To help you choose the perfect one (even if just for inspiration), we’ve paired each home with a beverage, getaway, dessert, animal, and hobby that best represents its style.
