Parade of Homes Turnberry Model Home

Missed the 2022 Parade of Homes?

See why the Mainstay and Turnberry turned heads.

The annual Parade of Homes, which ran Feb. 19 to March 13, gave Suncoast homeowners and homebuyers the chance to experience breathtaking design trends and tour a wide variety of stylish floor plans available in the region’s growing market! This year’s premier event, hosted by the Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association, featured 76 models and four fine communities and developments across Sarasota and Manatee counties. In particular, the team at Lee Wetherington Homes showcased two “Inspiration Homes” – models that display our array of capabilities in creating the custom homes we construct – and invited guests to tour these spectacular builds during the parade!

We believe in consistency throughout the residential construction process, ranging from the high-quality materials we incorporate to the detailed walkthroughs we conduct in each completed luxury home. It’s an art form that was truly displayed during the creation of the Mainstay at LakeHouse Cove and Turnberry, located at the Founders Club – both of which won 13 top awards for quality and craftsmanship! Here’s how each home’s impeccable design turned heads.

The Mainstay at LakeHouse Cove

The Mainstay model earned the prestigious “Grand Overall” award, recognizing a perfect score from Parade of Homes judges, for its flexible floor plan that balances easy entertaining and intimate privacy. The well-appointed kitchen, which includes a spacious island and deep walk-in pantry, seamlessly flows into an oversized Great Room, dining space and 588-square-foot outdoor living and dining area. The primary bedroom, part of more than 3,200 square feet of indoor living, takes relaxation to a new level with superior features like a large shower with dual heads and dual walk-in closets.

It’s no wonder this beautiful design won “Best Curb Appeal, “Best Kitchen,” “Best primary bedroom,” “Best Floor Plan,” “Best Architectural Detail” and “Best Overall” single-family model home in its category, and six awards during last year’s Parade of Homes tour!

The Turnberry at Founders Club

A modern twist on the traditional Florida lifestyle home, the Turnberry model made a lasting impression with its expansive contemporary design, winning “Best Curb Appeal,” “Best Kitchen,” “Best primary bedroom,” “Best Floor Plan,” “Best Architectural Detail” and “Best Overall” in its category. We were also proud to sell this spectacular home for $3.45 million during the parade!

Our newest, 4,200-square-foot Inspiration Home features an elegant exterior coastal appearance and modern interior touches that showcase the latest trends of today and tomorrow. Get lost in the pantry within this open kitchen or settle into an optimal work-from-home experience in the den adorned with glass barn doors. It’s the perfect flexible floor plan that suits any lifestyle and, given the right homesite, can be expanded to four or five bedrooms, a second floor, four-car garage – whatever you desire.
