Another Wake County Parade of Homes for the Books!

Another Wake County Parade of Homes for the Books!

Every year The Homes By Dickerson team spends countless months, long days into long nights, making sure that Parade of Homes accurately represents the best of our talents, the best of our resources, and the best of our passions.  Our reasoning is clear: We want our buyers to know that we can make their dreams a reality.  We want our homeowners to walk through the rooms we have built for them,  envisioning their life held within those very walls.  We want to continue researching, brainstorming, perfecting, designing, and building the best custom, high-performance homes available.  Parade of Homes allows us to do just that.  At the end of the day, it is not about the awards or the accolades within our industry-though we are honored to receive them.  We are just excited to take a breath, enjoy the moment, and start planning our showstoppers for 2019.  Here is to another fantastic Parade of Homes and to some incredible results from the Wake County and Durham/Orange/Chatham Parade of Homes Galas with all 8 of our 2018 Parade Homes winning an award!

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
We would love for you to make The Covington Farmhouse “The Home of YOUR Life!”
