Take a sneak peek at what’s inside:

Spring Newsletter.

Fresh Design Year-Round: 

Thinking ahead to the selections and color palette you want in your custom home? One of our experienced designers gives you her fresh take on how to ensure the best aesthetic.  A favorite idea that she mentions is to  incorporate one of the colors from your old home that makes you happiest.


Get to Know Our Architect:

“In whatever situation, listening to the client is always the number one thing I can do. It is my job as an architect and a member of the Homes By Dickerson team to create a design that meets and often exceeds the goals of the future homeowner.” The man behind the home plans, Jeff Williams, does phenomenal work every single day! Take a behind-the-scenes look at his role in the Homes By Dickerson homebuilding experience.


In The Garden:

Did you know that planting marigolds with your tomatoes attracts bees for pollination? Lea Ricks, one of our incredible project managers, is a gardening pro — and she’s excited to share her knowledge with you! A big fan of spring and summer produce, Lea has a couple tips for you to make the most of your own garden. (“Pick the foods you like to eat and do a little research on what grows well next to each other!”)


Spring Cleaning Tricks:

We believe it’s important to enjoy the little moments at home without the stress of unnecessary clutter. When The Home of Your Life is nice and organized, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy springtime the right way. From utilizing your doors to optimizing trendy storage options, here are a few of our favorite tips and tricks for a successful spring cleaning! 


Diamond Club Gala

The Diamond Club Gala is one of our favorite events to throw, especially because we love thanking the wonderful Realtors who have partnered with us in the last year! This year’s event couldn’t have gone better, and we want to thank our sponsors for helping to make it happen. To our Realtors, we look forward to working with you in 2020 and beyond! Thank you again for an incredible year.

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!

There is nothing more exciting for a builder than going to the next phase of a community!  Homes By Dickerson recently announced our newest section of Bridgewater in Traditions at Wake Forest with our fantastic Grand Opening in our new model home The Whitaker.  Last night we followed up this activity with our Preview Night for our Traditions VIP List.  Individuals who had shown an interest in building a custom design in this award-winning neighborhood met with our team, reviewed home sites and inquired on home designs.  These prospective homeowners were introduced to the entire Traditions team from the VP of Construction to Sales and Design.  They were also able to spend some one-on-one time with our licensed architect while he sketched new ideas!
Homes by Dickerson is proud to be the custom builder in the new phase of Bridgewater which focuses on Estate-Style custom designs. Our high-performance homes, priced from the $570’s, are on ¼ to ½-acre wooded home sites and adjacent to the Wake Forest Reservoir with its 100+ acres of natural preservation.

Amenities abound with miles of trails, pocket parks and open spaces. The Traditions Amenity Center and Club features a zero-entry resort-style pool with cabanas, a wet deck, and kid’s splash zone. In addition, the community proudly displays a pavilion amphitheater with fire pit, playground, and sand volleyball court. The community is surrounded by great shops, dining, grocery stores, and so much more!

New Move-In Ready Home of the Week:: The Shelby in Traditions at Wake Forest

New Move-In Ready Home of the Week:: The Shelby in Traditions at Wake Forest

You will fall in love with Homes By Dickerson’s The Shelby from the moment that you ascend the lengthy driveway and feast your eyes on the sheer size of the home and front yard! Imagine being greeted by the beautiful stone work, inviting front porch, clapboard shutters, three-car garage, and arched windows on a daily basis!  And those calming neutral tones used for the exterior are also found throughout the home on the other side of the handsome solid wood front door.

002_Front Porch

Once inside you are hit with an amazing amount of natural light, compliments of the grandeur of the 2-story foyer, and…oh, the details! Elevated trim in the foyer, elegant staircase banister, coffered ceilings in the family room, incredible archway between the breakfast nook and living room, vaulted ceilings and palladian-like windows in the study, to name a few!

A formal dining room and butler’s pantry leads to a true gourmet’s kitchen with its impressively elegant cabinetry and granite, the lightness of both are a stunning contrast against the dark hardwood finish.  Additional details include unique pendant lights and tilework above the range that only a personal tour could do justice.  The living room features a fireplace and a great backyard view with 2 sets of double doors leading out to the spacious screen porch. The rest of the main floor boasts a master suite complete with an oversized, glass-enclosed shower and tile-surround soaking tub.  Upstairs you will find three more bedrooms, a loft and a generous recreation room.

Winter Wonderland Home of the Week-The Riverwalk in Traditions at Wake Forest

Winter Wonderland Home of the Week-The Riverwalk in Traditions at Wake Forest

Welcome to the epitome of style, elegance and luxury at Homes by Dickerson!  Our Winter Wonderland Home of the Week, The Riverwalk in Traditions at Wake Forest, exudes all of these components and more in its unique exterior and quality interior details.   We have successfully blended a mixture of brick, board and batten, peaks, columns and decorative windows to create an incredibly stately façade, hinting at what lies behind the massive wooden front doors.  Walking inside, you are greeted by a generous foyer, expansive hardwood floors, arched entry ways and streaming natural light.  The interior design is a brilliant combination of old world charm and modern elegance.  While you can imagine family gatherings in the ballroom-like dining room and awe over the corniced-framed stovetop, the cool gray subway tiles and sleek cabinetry of the butler’s pantry and kitchen island evoke a refreshingly clean and crisp style.  The oversized kitchen island is truly a focal point with its solid black aesthetics contrasting against the lighter surrounding cabinets,  wood flooring, and beautiful brushed nickel fixtures.  Your view from the kitchen will result in either the wall of windows looking out into the backyard, the immense family room with its custom-built shelving and fireplace, or the wrought-iron staircase leading to the second floor.  Before heading upstairs, you will want to notice the first-floor guest suite boasting complimentary granite countertops and coordinating details.

Once you leave the main floor, you will encounter a wonderful master suite with a spa-like bath retreat, complete with a huge walk-in shower and claw-foot tub.  The adjoining closet also does not disappoint with its built-in armoire and open-face shelving and window seats.  Three secondary bedrooms and two bathrooms can be found on the second floor in addition to a great bonus room that is spacious enough to accommodate your hobbies and interests.  One of the most signature features of this home however, is actually on the outside.  The brick fireplace enhances the intimate screen porch and views of the home’s backyard.
