Parade to “The Home of Your Life!”

Parade to “The Home of Your Life!”

It always takes me a while to mentally transition from summer to fall-more so than with other changes of season-but then I see the slight tinges of orange and red slowly painting the leaves or get a whiff of autumn spices and realize that fall is in fact here!   For The Homes By Dickerson team, the beginning of fall is a flurry of activity as we prepare for the largest showcase of homes throughout the year-The Triangle Parade of Homes.  We have poured through design ideas, sketched, and dreamed.  We have swept, scrubbed, painted, and planted.  We have walked each community, searching for ways to improve all of the little details to ensure a stellar experience for you.  Now we take a breath, step back and present you with 9 amazing homes that embody everything we are and believe in as a custom, high-performance builder.

We invite you to join us over the next three weekends (October 6-7th, 12-14th, and 19th-21st: 12pm-5pm each day) for the 2018 Parade of Homes where you will see your dreams and visions come to life! Intricate trim detail, gorgeous woodwork, decadent tile patterns, custom layouts, beautiful elevations, curb appeal, and so much more await you at every turn.  The only thing that is missing is you!  Tour Homes By Dickerson’s 2018 Parade of Homes and find “The Home of Your Life” today!

The interior of this Homes by Dickerson ranch plan, The Lakewood, combines elegant fixtures, custom trim, stone and rough-hewn beams to create the feeling of a luxurious mountain retreat.  The earth tone color palette used in this home, from the beautiful clay colored walls to the unique fireplace mantel and surround in the family room, support that atmosphere.  The charm and character of the study with its vaulted ceilings, hand-stained beams, floor-to-ceiling stone surround and dulled brass and copper light fixtures will make you envision calm, cozy evenings. Dark walnut stain on the site-finished hardwoods lends a warmth to each of the rooms on the first floor including a master suite, guest suites, family room and gorgeous gourmet kitchen.  Upstairs you will find a generous guest suite along with a bonus room and ample storage.  Additional features include a large screen porch, 10 foot ceilings, Electrolux appliances, an oversized home site and so much more!

Homes By Dickerson’s Newest Home of the Week:: The Tatsworth III in Croasdaile Farm

Homes By Dickerson’s Newest Home of the Week:: The Tatsworth III in Croasdaile Farm

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then we hope that the photos of this custom-built, single-family home conveys paragraphs and paragraphs of luxury, elegance and craftsmanship.  This Tatsworth, on a corner and cul-de-sac homesite, offers an expansive main floor with a guest suite, spacious family room, study, formal dining room, open kitchen and screen porch.  A generous master suite, three secondary bedrooms and a versatile recreation space can be found upstairs; however, the highlight of this 4505 square foot home is the impressive level of details and finishes that are found throughout.  Floor-to-ceiling board and batten graces the walls of the cozy study and extended wainscoating completes the adjacent dining room.  Natural light showcases quality hardwood floors in each room on the first floor due to the abundance of elongated, low-e windows and elegant fixtures complement the look and feel of the home.  The gourmet kitchen is a conglomeration of high-end details including a pasta faucet, glass-front cabinets and an over-sized granite-covered island.  An unique owner’s entry with custom built-ins and a walk-in pantry complete the first floor.  Hand-stained French doors can be located on both levels.

Our Red Ribbon Home of the Week, the Lakeview Manor in Croasdaile Farm, is truly THE perfect Holiday Home! From the moment that you walk through the solid mahogany double-doors your senses become alive. You can almost smell the boughs of holly that you would intertwine along the wrought-iron staircase balusters.

HBD_DurhamParade_003 (800x534) HBD_DurhamParade_008 (534x800) HBD_DurhamParade_009 (800x534)

Laughter from your family gathering and holiday music wafts through the air as you saunter through the spacious foyer. To your left, the adorned fireplace blazes in the study where a family member is curled up with a Holiday read.

HBD_DurhamParade_004 (800x534)

On your right, the formal dining room table sparkles and shines with your grandmother’s fine china and silver, a mixture of silver and gold to commemorate the season. The open family room and gourmet kitchen is abuzz with activity as your nostrils are assailed with a mixture of spices and pine, winter smells which flood you with precious memories. Delicious treats cover the oversized, granite-covered island and warmth permeates the rooms from the large ovens in the kitchen and additional fireplace in the family room.

Imagine watching the snow fall and the occasional deer visit while baking recipes that have been passed down for generations.
