Parade to The Home of YOUR Life in The Covington Farmhouse at Henderson Place!

Parade to The Home of YOUR Life in The Covington Farmhouse at Henderson Place!

One comment that we hear quite frequently from people who tour any of our homes, not just our Parade Homes, is that there is just something about a Homes By Dickerson home.  They can feel it from the moment they see the home and then step through the front door.  However, not everyone can put a finger on what exactly that something is…
Maybe it is the fact that we consider the complexities of your life when configuring the layout?  Maybe it stems from our use of the highest quality materials available?  Maybe it is the countless hours our team spends pouring their knowledge, passion and attention to detail into each room and beyond.  Quite likely, it is a culmination of all of these things and more.   But, at the end of the day, one thing is certain and that is once we have finished sanding, painting, polishing and buffing the house into which we have invested so much of our life, it becomes our greatest pleasure to see you make it “The Home of YOUR Life!”

As we take you on a tour of The Covington Farmhouse, our Parade home in Henderson Place at Fearrington, really look at these gorgeous details and see for yourself the quality and craftsmanship found in each square foot.  Imagine your family filling these rooms with their character and hobbies, friends and laughter.   Who knows, maybe this beautiful custom design, this Parade-worthy floorplan. really is “The Home of YOUR Life!”

 

HP Front PorchThe front porch could not be more cozy and inviting with its naturally stained cedar columns and charming natural wood plank shutters.  Calm gray/green siding was chosen to complement the stone palette as well as the beautiful hand-stained wooden door.

HP FoyerIn this Covington Farmhouse, Montana Ranch meets Southern Elegance.  Light and airy walls enhance the array of colors which show through in the site-finished hardwood flooring.  Woods and metals are happily married together through rustic light fixtures and carefully chosen decor.

HP Dining Area

HP Kitchen

Whether you are preparing chow for 20+ ranch hands or simply cooking for a more intimate gathering, this kitchen has plenty of wow factors from the incredible exposed brick, pops of color on the island and hood, beautiful quartz counter top, and over-sized pendant light fixtures.  Again, woods, metals, bricks, etc. are all used in these room to give warmth and texture.

HP Living Room

The modern ranch theme continues into the family room with more exposed brick around the fireplace and open shelving but the eye catcher in this room is without a doubt the brilliant windmill fan hanging from the 10 foot ceiling!  The metal curves give yet another element to explore and change the shape and feel of the entire space.

HP Sunroom

This sun room is an absolute necessity when it comes to unwinding after a long day.  Enjoy the beautiful views and all of the elements through your abundance of elongated windows!  Put your feet up, grab your favorite drink and past time and call it a successful evening!

HP Master

What better place to have a touch of romance than the master suite?  Decorative cedar trusses enhance the vaulted ceilings and provide the height needed for the galvanized light fixtures.  However, the paint color and sconces over the bed give a softness to the room that is perfect for this spacious retreat.

HP Master Bathroom

The size of the custom shower with the built-in tile seating says it all…heaven!  This house offers so many characteristics from rustic with hints of elegance to complete pampering.

HP Upstairs Living Space

Wonderful flex space for a mancave, a theater room, bonus area, play room, hobbies, crafts and so much more!

HP PorchAnd last but not least, the sweet screen porch which allows more views of the wooded exterior and brings some of that acreage into the home.  Just one more feature on this incredible journey that we call The Covington Farmhouse, one of 8 Parade Homes on the 2017 Parade of Homes Tour in the Triangle.   If you can see your family living in these rooms, contact us at 919-917-3132 or info@homesbydickerson.com

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.

S011 Office WindowsThese expansive clay windows enlarge the room and allow for an abundance of natural light.

S011 Office

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!

First Stop on the HBD Parade Tour-The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs!

First Stop on the HBD Parade Tour-The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs!

If you have not been to this wonderfully-hidden jewel in Fuquay-Varina, add this as an entry in your “must-see” list.  Sunset Bluffs is a growing neighborhood in the southwestern part of Wake County bursting with single-family homes, tree-lined sidewalks, beautiful views and convenient amenities all in a tranquil setting.  Nestled among these wooded home sites is The Fairfield, a Sunset Bluffs Parade entry from Homes By Dickerson.  When you walk into this home, get ready to long for crisp autumn days, cozy blankets and a best-seller!  This clean farmhouse style is light and airy with rustic elements found throughout the plan starting with the naturally stained columns and dark green/gray siding on the exterior.  The kitchen has a variety of custom details from the “X” pattern in the woodwork (look specifically on the side of the island and on the barn doors leading to the pantry) to the hints of charcoal gray in the island.  Carefully-selected pendant lights draw your eye upward, above the island, where the unfinished wood shows off all of its character and texture.

010_ Kitchen

Features in the family room include a charming window seat, shiplap detail as the fireplace surround which extends to the ceiling and a mantle stained to match the hardwood flooring.  The built-in shelving that flank the fireplace are enhanced by transom windows which let in natural light.

013_ Living Room  005_Foyer

The lockers in the drop zone area proudly continue the rustic theme with a shiplap background and a floating beam to sit on which accurately matches the fireplace mantle.

020_ Owners Entry

Upstairs is the master suite which features a surprising tile, gorgeous concrete gray with a fleur-de-lis pattern reminiscent of 18th century architecture and design.  This tile, supporting the stand-alone clawfoot tub, is both a jaw dropper as well as a conversation starter!  It is that perfect texture and color which complements the hint of industrial inspiration found in the incredible fixtures as well as on the floating shelves located in the full basement!  This genre is accented by the spot-on decor where rustic meets elegance and then says “Hello” to natural hues and innovative design.
