Another Exciting Round of Parade Awards for Homes By Dickerson!

Another Exciting Round of Parade Awards for Homes By Dickerson!

The Homes By Dickerson team is both honored and humbled by the recognition received at the 2017 Parade of Homes Awards!  After months of designing and building every detail of eight different parade homes across The Triangle, we are proud to bring home SIX Gold Awards, ONE Silver Award and a Perfect Score during the Durham/Orange/Chatham and Raleigh-Wake Parade of Home Galas!   Our streak started strong at the DOC Parade festivities held on October 3rd at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill where both of our Briar Chapel entries brought home the gold.  Our beautiful Covington Farmhouse design in Henderson Place, which competed in the same categories as our Briar Chapel Bristol, was awarded with a silver award as well!   The team carried this momentum until the following week when we attended the Raleigh-Wake event on October 9th at the fantastic Reynolds Coliseum on the NC State Campus.  Homes By Dickerson was beyond thrilled when four of their five homes in the Raleigh Parade Tour were announced as Gold Winners, one even achieving a perfect score by the judges! We know how hard every builder works to showcase their talent and their designs so we are extremely grateful for the attention placed on our custom homes.  It is due to the dedication and commitment from every member of the Homes By Dickerson family that we are able to accept these accolades.

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

Next up… We visit the small but nationally ranked town of Apex which is home to the Homes By Dickerson exclusive community of Madison at Evan’s Creek.  You do not want to miss our black and white classic The Irving on the Homes By Dickerson Parade of Home Tour!

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 Stairway

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!

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Fairfield Cottage at Briar Chapel!

Parade to The Home of Your Life in the Fairfield Cottage at Briar Chapel!

Our Parade journey continues on to the master-planned neighborhood of Briar Chapel where two custom designs by Homes By Dickerson await you to tour: The Fairfield Cottage and The Bristol II.  Both homes are of the highest quality craftsmanship and both are equally exquisite.

As you walk through the Fairfield Cottage, the urge to grab an afghan and a hot cup of tea is overwhelming.  The Cape Cod-inspired design is found in everything from the bold use of navy  to the combination of black and chrome fixtures.  Classic, clean lines, and understated elegance is what this home is about, all of which is emphasized by our nautical-themed decor.   The exterior introduces the color palette with complementary stone work, gray siding/shake, and navy shutters.  Inside the theme continues through the tongue and groove details, the classic gray hardwoods, and the use of lantern-like light fixtures.  The dining room is a mixture of Westcott Navy walls enhanced by Repose Gray trim and a chrome lantern fixture but the real gem of the home is the gourmet kitchen where the island and hood are a brave navy, the quartz counter tops and perimeter cabinets are featured in a crisp white, and the back splash is a two-toned glass arabesque mosaic tile.

One other room which will completely wow you is the master bedroom which boasts 15 foot vaulted ceilings with tongue and groove details, exposed rafters, and an incredible hanging light fixture!  The adjoining master bath will also not disappoint with its gray hardwood-like tile, navy cabinetry and simply elegant chrome fixtures.

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.

2017 Parade of Homes Sneak Peek!

2017 Parade of Homes Sneak Peek!

It starts in early January.
Conversations begin.  Our architect sketches and designers share snippets of inspiration.  Project managers consider, eliminate and plan.   Sleeves are rolled up as ideas move back and forth and then decisions are made.  For more than 9 months those decisions grow, evolve, and take shape…literally.   Spring has its fair share of initial challenges and summer brings long, hot hours as deadlines loom and expectations rise.   Excitement buzzes around our office around the time that the first leaves begin to fall but not because of cooler temperatures or the change in foliage.  Rather, because we are now putting the finishing touches on eight custom homes which will soon be displayed, judged, admired, and adored.  Rather, because The 2017 Parade of Homes is almost here.

Most of you are probably familiar with The Parade of Homes.  In fact, many of you may have already cleared the first three weekends in October on your calendar to explore, browse, dream, and perhaps even purchase one of these stunning designs.  However, for those of you who are new to The Triangle area, you will want to get this annual fall event on your must-do list. Thousands of people will flock to model homes across several counties to view gorgeous, decorated, move-in ready plans.   Homes By Dickerson will be one of many builders participating in this industry tradition yet our final results will clearly stand out among the rest.

Why? Because The Parade of Homes is so much more to us than just an exaggerated series of open houses.   It is in fact an accumulation of almost a year’s worth of work, an opportunity to display our team‘s immense talent and creativity.   It is the perfect platform to highlight our innovation, our passion, and skill through our unique, custom plans and that of our commitment to building high-performance homes.  Most importantly though, it is the ideal way to help you find “The Home of Your Life.”   Because at the end of the day, this is all about you.  Your dreams, your vision, your family, and your life.  Whether you are looking for a clean farmhouse style with rustic elements, a modernly elegant feel with classic design- or anything in between-Homes By Dickerson will be featuring beautiful, exclusive homes for you to enjoy.  Come see our hand-crafted trim additions, wall enhancements, carefully designed layouts, new and exciting color palettes, and so much more!  While we cannot share all of the wonderful details with you (our designers are making us build up the suspense!), we do want to give you a sneak peek of what is to come.  Here are some pictures of a few of the fixtures and design elements we have included in our 2017 Parade Homes.  We hope that they will have you coming back for more!
