Ridgefield Parade of Homes features design that looks like a million bucks

RIDGEFIELD — Strolling into the GRO Parade of Houses community, I was struck by just how grand and however distinct every single of the six residences were being.

Each individual dwelling options the latest fashions and improvements, and every single will price tag its new operator additional than a million bucks. But walking via the residences a person by a single, I discovered that the residences all experienced their have ambiance and truly feel.

The initial residence, The Kousa, was intended and crafted by the husband-and-spouse staff Jason Huyette and Lilli Arveli of Genesis Houses NW. The midcentury-fashion ranch felt personal, but however encompasses 3,305 sq. toes with 3 bedrooms, an place of work and a home theater.

Arveli said she loves the home’s relationship to the outdoors. The residence, she said, has natural light, greenery and has a partially protected and heated out of doors dwelling place. But she is tough-pressed to name her preferred aspect.

“I created the house,” she explained. “So there is no 1 favourite element since it’s incredible.”

The future property, The Haven, is billed as a contemporary farmhouse with 3,300 sq. toes of living space. The household, designed by Cascade West Enhancement, has four bedrooms and a reward home. The attractive house has a fireplace that stretches sky-higher.

Jason Stenerson from Cascade West Improvement pointed to the home’s two-story good area. The substantial home windows will deliver the home’s new owners with an abundance of organic light.

Upcoming on the street is the Aletta dwelling by Rivercrest Building. With 3,372 sq. ft, this household offers 4 bedrooms and an business, together with four bathrooms. One particular standout space was the upstairs loft, wanting down more than the terrific home.

Josh Dannenmann, a broker with Cano Genuine Estate, was symbolizing the builder at this property on Friday.

“My favored thing about this residence is the flooring program,” he stated. “It’s just tremendous open.”

The residence, he extra, has a large amount of normal light, with higher ceilings and a huge great place. It also has an outside living middle, which Dannenmann also enjoys.

The Wickenburg house was next, coming in at 4,075 square ft with 4 bedrooms and 4 bogs. The dwelling, built by Affinity Homes, experienced a enjoyment factor named the “Casita,” a semi-detached bed room suite that I entered in advance of even heading into the greater property.

The house “has a Southwest Hill Place vibe to it,” mentioned John Colgate, just one of the home’s builders.

“We genuinely required to benefit from the place even even though we’re in a community and neighborhood,” mentioned Colgate. “We required it to sense quite non-public in right here.”

So the window and space destinations ended up very intentional, he included.

Glancing down a facet street, I noticed a modern French nation residence, The Hazel Merrin, by Glavin Properties. The 3,360-square-foot house gives three bedrooms, moreover an business and theater. The lovely household appeared onto a discipline powering it, which was wonderful, but the real gem was the concealed pantry.

“A large amount of men and women gasp at it,” reported Niall Glavin, operator of Glavin Households.

Ultimately arrived the Oak See residence. At 3,058 sq. ft, this household by Glavin Residences attributes three bedrooms and an business office. As I walked into the house with its seemingly sky-superior ceilings, I couldn’t assist noticing the big oak tree as a result of the living area windows as its leaves danced in the wind.

Glavin likes the open ground strategy but suggests the perspective is the actual attract to the house.

The new home owner can be “washing the dishes and observe the leaves in the breeze,” he stated.

If you’re in the current market, 4 of the 6 properties are for sale. The celebration isn’t just observed as an prospect for builders to offer high-end residences, though. It’s also a showcase of the hottest and biggest traits.

“It will allow the builders and the architects and the interior designers to categorical what they enjoy and what they’re intrigued in,” explained Glavin.
