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!

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.

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.

When I first saw this house, two words came to mind: simply inviting.  It is not hard to see this home with a family comfortably settling in and embracing the character it offers, nurturing it and making it their own.  If these images are speaking to you in the same way, reach out to us at 919-917-3132 or to make The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs “The Home of YOUR Life!” today!

It is all about the DESIGN, Volume I! Get a sneak peak of our Fairfield Parade Home in Sunset Bluffs!

It is all about the DESIGN, Volume I! Get a sneak peak of our Fairfield Parade Home in Sunset Bluffs!

The excitement is definitely building at Homes by Dickerson as we prepare for 10 homes on the 2015 Parade Tour and a majority of that excitement is stemming from our Design Team as they see their visions come to life!

For the next five weeks leading up to the big reveal, we will bring you a sneak peek of each of our Parade homes from the perspective of its designer. What were they inspired by? What new trends and colors are they implementing into these homes?

In this first volume of “It is all about the DESIGN,” we are taking a look at The Fairfield Parade Home in Sunset Bluffs, Fuquay Varina. Designed by our very own Rachel Bailey, this plan evokes a warm and inviting farmhouse feel which is a consistent theme throughout the home. Bailey has updated the traditional farmhouse style with some fun, modern twists such as mason jar pendant lights above the island and larger subway tiles for the kitchen backsplash. Her chosen color palette of warm, gray tones is evident in the combination of satin nickel and chrome finishes as well as the gray wash hardwood floors found throughout the common areas. This color scheme is particularly complementary to the overall atmosphere of this bright, open and spacious plan which encourages both formal entertaining and quiet nights at home.

There will also be additional surprises in store for The Fairfield which are a definite “must see” including the XBOX gaming area, located in the upstairs rec room, and the custom-cabinet furniture piece for the butler’s pantry. It is the myriad of details, however, which truly make this home unique. From the specialty arm lights on the custom bookcases in the family room and the transoms in the master bedroom to the luxury master bath with its upgraded tile and pebbles in the master shower and free-standing tub, the attention to detail in this home speaks to the quality and craftsmanship that Homes by Dickerson places in every floorplan in every neighborhood.

We hope that you will visit The Fairfield during one of the three Parade weekends this year: October 3-4, 10-12 and 18-20, each day from 12noon-5pm!
