Use As YOU Choose Fall Event!

Use As YOU Choose Fall Event!

There are no shortage of reasons to love the Fall Season.  A few favorites include that distinctive smell in the air, the cooler temperatures, hay rides, and the return of pumpkin…well, everything.  We at Homes By Dickerson have decided to embrace the time of year and give you yet another reason to love Fall with our “Use as YOU Choose” Fall Event*.

No one knows the needs of your family better than you do so we are giving you up to $10,000 on select move-in ready homes in Briar Chapel, Madison at Evan’s Creek and Wendell Falls to “Use as YOU Choose.”  Whether you would like to put those funds towards decorative window blinds, a beautiful new fence or additional landscaping, the choice is up to YOU.   If aesthetic options are not the best for your budget, apply your “Use as YOU Choose” dollars towards your closing costs or buying down your mortgage rate.

We invite you to tour our beautiful custom designs included in this program and see how you can make one of them “The Home of Your Life!”

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Bristol II at Briar Chapel!

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Bristol II at Briar Chapel!

Our next venture has us traveling away from the Cape Cod-inspired Fairfield Cottage and heading towards the rather transitional Bristol II at Briar Chapel!  Soft hazy hues and nautical decor is replaced by a metropolis loft feel where elegance, rustica, and modern all propitiously converge, resulting in a transitional tone carried in the design.

Whites and taupes are used throughout the floor plan such as the white kitchen cabinetry and taupe kitchen island.  These colors provide almost a paradox as the bright white lends itself to clean lines and is a stark contrast to the warmth of the taupe.  Paradox or not, the colors successfully create and support the intended theme of the home.  Take a moment to peruse your surroundings.  Do you see the Calcutta marble backsplash in the kitchen or the aged antique brass pendants over the island?  It is details such as the dark honey flooring and open shelving in the butlers pantry which provide additional layers of texture and color to this design.  Follow that beautiful dark honey tone upward as it is also included in the wood header between the family room and kitchen as well as at the fireplace mantel.   Also in the family room, the white cortsite ledgestone surround blends wonderfully with the soft gray of the furnishings but also give some composition to the room and open layout.    Another intriguing detail is the “X” trim design used in a myriad of locations including the ceiling, kitchen cabinets and stairway newel posts.  The stairs feature wrought iron handrails, a must to completing the mixture of metals used in this home.  In fact, one of the most compelling features to this Bristol II is the mixture of materials found in all of the light and plumbing fixtures and how well they complement one another as well as the entire decor of the design.

This study is truly one of my favorite rooms we have ever built.  The incongruous make-up of the custom shelving lends itself to an artistic design.  The lines fondly work together with those of the sliding glass doors.  Paired with the antique brass of the wall lights, the result is wonderfully rustic modern, ready for the big city itself.

Stay tuned as we round the bend to the wooded views and spacious acreage of The Covington Farmhouse in Henderson Place at Fearrington, our next stop on the Homes By Dickerson Parade Tour!

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Fairfield Cottage at Briar Chapel!

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Fairfield Cottage at Briar Chapel!

Our Parade journey continues on to the master-planned neighborhood of Briar Chapel where two custom designs by Homes By Dickerson await you to tour: The Fairfield Cottage and The Bristol II.  Both homes are of the highest quality craftsmanship and both are equally exquisite.

As you walk through the Fairfield Cottage, the urge to grab an afghan and a hot cup of tea is overwhelming.  The Cape Cod-inspired design is found in everything from the bold use of navy  to the combination of black and chrome fixtures.  Classic, clean lines, and understated elegance is what this home is about, all of which is emphasized by our nautical-themed decor.   The exterior introduces the color palette with complementary stone work, gray siding/shake, and navy shutters.  Inside the theme continues through the tongue and groove details, the classic gray hardwoods, and the use of lantern-like light fixtures.  The dining room is a mixture of Westcott Navy walls enhanced by Repose Gray trim and a chrome lantern fixture but the real gem of the home is the gourmet kitchen where the island and hood are a brave navy, the quartz counter tops and perimeter cabinets are featured in a crisp white, and the back splash is a two-toned glass arabesque mosaic tile.

One other room which will completely wow you is the master bedroom which boasts 15 foot vaulted ceilings with tongue and groove details, exposed rafters, and an incredible hanging light fixture!  The adjoining master bath will also not disappoint with its gray hardwood-like tile, navy cabinetry and simply elegant chrome fixtures.
