This week we are excited to give you a sneak peek of our three Parade Homes in the award-winning Briar Chapel neighborhood. Each of these beautiful homes have a very different theme giving you the opportunity to see Homes by Dickerson’s incredibly diverse building style and craftsmanship in one community. Designer Pam Craig and her assistant Olivia Cerrillos started with three popular design concepts and then molded and shaped them to successfully complement the custom floorplans as well as the flavor of the local area. Here is just a small, artistic taste of what each home offers- you will not want to miss touring these stunning designs!
Craig and Cerrillos bring this colonial-style home to life with their classic finishes. Wanting to capture the “Southern Belle” ambiance, our designers focused on details such as herringbone brick on the expansive front porch and rear patio, elegant trim work, custom built-in shelving and touches of marble.
While the entire home screams Classic Southern elegance through its spacious, well-lit rooms, this home is definitely worthy of twenty-first century praise with regards to technology. The Briar Chapel design team ensured that this southern gem was a balanced combination of old world charm and modern conveniences including a Sonance whole-house sound system, central vacuum, upgraded appliances and much more!

The Belhaven Farmhouse
Looking for something more rustically elegant with a hint of country quaintness? The Belhaven Farm House effectively marries the classically southern farm house with the modern, industrial look. From the moment you see the Belhaven on its wooded home site, Craig and Cerrillos wanted you to get the feel of a traditional farm house from the white siding, rough-hewn columns and herringbone details; however, it was imperative to them to include a few surprises along the way. The rustic and industrial interior finishes mix woods and various metals throughout the home and the barn door leading to the private study is ingenious. You will not want to miss the shiplap paneling, the unique owner’s entry or the gorgeous kitchen cabinets. Take a look at these snapshots and see if you can find them when you visit The Belhaven Farmhouse at Briar Chapel!

The Jackson Cottage
Last, but certainly not least, is our coastal-themed southern cottage, The Jackson, inspired by all of the beautiful destination points along the North Carolina shoreline. Once you enter the doors of this quintessential seaside retreat, you feel as if the ocean is just a moment away with its open and airy rooms, light color palette and use of warm wood details. The design team was meticulous with the details in this home, employing both a butcher block island in the kitchen and a built-in banquette.
