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

The Home of Your Life! The Delaney in Barton’s Grove

The Home of Your Life! The Delaney in Barton’s Grove

Located in this beautiful oasis of Barton’s Grove is one of our newer floor plans, The Delaney: a move-in ready, custom home perfect for you and your family!  This basement floor plan features a charming exterior of stone and shake as well as a corner-wrap porch.  The gray tones of the exterior materials are successfully paired with darker decorative accents and support columns.

The calming color scheme is reflected on the interior as well from the light gray walls and the stained hardwood flooring and handrails.  A darker gray/green color is used in the dining room which is an elegant contrast to the incredible trim and unique light fixtures!  One of the eye-catching touches to this home is the curved panel ceiling in the galley leading through the butler’s pantry and into the gourmet kitchen. Our designers created a beautiful space by using both dark and light cabinetry, an over-sized island and decorative tile patterns above the cooktop.  Small details such as the curved cabinet above the cooktop (a complement to the curved ceiling at the butler’s pantry) and the concealed door in the butler’s pantry (leading to fantastic wine storage!) add to the aforementioned charm and grace of the home.  Additional outstanding features include the dramatic coffered ceilings and built-in shelving in the family room, the spectacular wooded view from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the breakfast room, the open living area, cozy mudroom, screen porch, and deck.  A guest suite completes the first floor.

The Delaney also boasts a full basement with a study, rec room, full bath, patio and ample storage.  This area gives the flex space needed for either guests, teenagers, in-laws, or just additional space to live, work and play!  A generous master suite can be found on the second floor as well as another rec room, 3 secondary bedrooms and two more baths.

Barton’s Grove is one of those communities that you will regret not building in while you had the opportunity!  Located between the convenience of Creedmoor Road amenities and the recreation of Falls Lake, Barton’s Grove offers the best of all worlds including estate-style custom homes on expansive, wooded home sites averaging 2 acres in size!
