The 2021 Parade of Homes – What You Might’ve Missed

From February 20th to March 14th, homeowners were invited to get a firsthand look at the new Suncoast housing market in the annual 2021 Parade of Homes. This year’s premier event featured 90 models, nine communities and three developments throughout Manatee and Sarasota counties. We proudly showcased two of our “Inspiration Homes” and invited guests to explore our quality craftsmanship.

We opened the front doors to opportunity and welcomed prospective residents to the Magnolia at Cypress Glen and the Mainstay in LakeHouse Cove at Waterside. Little did they know, our models were also assessed and ranked for quality by the Building Industry Association. Our team was ecstatic to find out that we received SEVEN awards for our showcased models.

The Magnolia at Cypress Glen

“Best Kitchen”

This Inspiration Home is popular for optimizing living space, making this home feel much larger than its actual size. The Magnolia won “Best Kitchen” for its open Great Room/Dining Area/Kitchen layout, which provides an exceptional area for entertaining. This floorplan also opens through the 8′ sliding glass doors to the large covered outdoor living space. Other key features include a gorgeous primary bedroom, that is as luxurious as homes twice this size, with a large shower, walk-in closet and luxury appointments in the sleeping area. A Florida Basement off the garage provides easy-to-reach additional air-conditioned storage space too.

The Mainstay in LakeHouse Cove at Waterside

“Best Overall Model” | “Best Curb Appeal” | “Best Architectural Detail” | “Best primary bedroom” | “Best Kitchen” | “Best Pool at Price Point”

The Mainstay model is spacious and flexible, with ample room for entertaining and a private primary bedroom to get away from it all. The well-appointed kitchen features a huge island, a large walk-in pantry and easy access to an oversized Great Room, dining space and the outdoor living/dining areas earning a “Best Kitchen” rating. The primary bedroom also achieved an award for its exceptional privacy and superior features throughout, including a large shower with dual heads, dual walk-in closets and proximity to the den. The combination of this Inspiration Home’s stunning design and access to a welcoming, waterside community impressed and won many over, securing the “Best Overall Model” title.
