Are you ready to be inspired by the latest home design trends and materials? The BIA Parade of Homes is happening now at Evans Farm, located in Delaware County, OH. Evans Farm is a walkable neighborhood, filled with paths, ponds, parks, and green spaces for family and friends to enjoy. This community is planned in the style of New Urbanism, where outdoor living is key and walking and biking are great ways to get around the community.
So what can you expect to see in this year’s Parade?
Wide open spaces are the name of the game in this year’s homes. Sight lines are key, as well as openness and room for entertaining.
First floor masters, some complete with a laundry room attached, large master baths with free standing tubs and dual showerheads in expansive showers, and large walk-in closets are prevalent in these homes. Of course, you’ll still find 2ndfloor masters, too.
Flex rooms create options for everyone to choose how to use the space.
Bar rooms on the first floor or basements brings entertaining to a new level. Check out the Speakeasy room and the Wine room you’ll find in one of the homes. Basement bars with almost full kitchens, wine bars, beer taps, and more will have you ready to move in.
Speaking of basements, you’ll see everything imaginable for entertaining and hanging out with family and friends. So many innovative and fun ideas will be sure to give you decorating, building, or remodeling ideas.
Expansive outdoor living are one of the main features of these homes. Covered and uncovered patios, a pool, retractable screens, sliding doors, large patio doors, outdoor kitchens, and wide and inviting front porches, complete with porch swings, will make you want to spend more time outside. You’ll even find a bocce ball court in one back yard and a pool in another.
Garages are at the back of the homes and serve as more than car storage. A mirrored door that reflects the pool, a bar, storage, room for 3-4 cars, and more make these worth a look.
Of course, the interior designs are exceptional. Color, texture, materials, interesting décor, accent walls, and decorative tiles on floosr and walls will have you snapping photos, taking notes, and asking for details.
A couple of the homes feature a separate large living space above the garage. These are outfitted with everything needed (living room, kitchen, bath, bedroom, and storage) to use as a guest suite, a rentable apartment, or in-law suite. Yes, they are able to be rented for additional income and walkways allow access to street parking for your renters.
Of course, we don’t want you to miss Home #11. Our home design was built by Sierra Custom Homes and features a 50' long great room that opens to the gorgeous side porch veranda with retractable screens and overlooks the brick terrace. The outdoor living features a water fountain and living wall of plants designed by Everett Brelsford of Blendon Gardens, which can be viewed through 3 massive sliding doors, as well as a door from the master bedroom. Inside, the home features a vaulted ceiling, twelve-foot custom built kitchen cabinets, 3 shower heads in the over-sized master shower, a first floor master that opens to the patio, a butler’s pantry, and amazing attention to detail.
We’re so proud to have been a part in the creation of this stunning home. This award winning home is worth your time to visit, as well as all of the other homes. Come see us at the parade or give us a call~614-430-0027. We’d love to design a home for you or your clients.
