The Triangle Parade of Homes marches on for one more weekend!

A parade is an opportunity for people to get out and strut their stuff in front of admiring onlookers. When your “pride and joy” is a home, you can’t exactly take it down Main Street. But there is a way to “parade” them. The Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County and Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties are once again showcasing some of the most unique, stunning residences. The annual Triangle Parade of Homes marches on for one more weekend

This year’s event opens the doors to almost 250 new construction homes, built by a variety of homebuilders in the region. 

Here at Baker Residential, we’re excited to welcome people into our homes and experience the “ah” moments as they walk through. We’re featuring three showcase homes in this year’s Parade—one in each of our distinctive communities of estate homes.

McKenzie Ridge in Apex is described as “The Peak of Good LIving”, nestled in a wooded area near Apex Nature Park. The new home at 2925 Kenna Creek Bend represents Dartmouth floor plan, designed by GMD Design Group. This 4-bedroom beauty spans 3,622 square feet in a two-story design. Both browsers and buyers are impressed with the attention to detail in this home, including coffered ceilings in both the family room and formal dining room. The chef-inspired kitchen will spark culinary excellence—or at least the attempt—with an oversized center island, walk-in pantry, and a butler’s pantry that makes entertaining a breeze.

Plan a stop along the route in Apex, at our Weddington community.. The Ansley model home at 2849 Spring Shade Road was designed by Planworx Architecture, and presents unique exterior details with a Craftsman-style influence. Inside the 4,103-square-foot home, the main floor provides a spacious open concept, as well as a guest suite with a kitchenette, which is ideal for multi-generational households. The second floor houses the master suite that has both a sitting area and covered balcony that overlooks the spacious backyard. Three more bedrooms and two and a half of the home’s four and one-half baths are upstairs, along with a game room that includes a powder room. Baker Residential has incorporated stunning  quartz countertops throughout this beautiful home. The outdoor living space is equally luxurious, with a screened porch, oversized deck,and paver patio with firepit.

In last year’s Parade of Homes, Baker Residential’s entry in our Cary community, Providence at Yates Pond, received the Gold Medal Award in the category of homes priced between $1.16 million and $1.5 million. This year, just down the road from the medal-winner, we’re displaying another home with the same floor plan, but some very different details. The Ashland showcase home will be open to visitors at 2144 Vandiver Way. Also designed by Planworx Architecture, this versatile floor plan is a two-story home comprised of 4,380 square feet, Baker Residential’s largest entry in the Triangle Parade of Homes this year.

Anyone who appreciated last year’s winner should see how we’ve used the same floor plan but created an interior that blends a different array of choices! The five-bedroom home, priced at $849,900, provides a grand entrance with a clerestory foyer. The first-floor was designed with 10-foot ceilings to expand on the spaciousness. This year’s entry includes a second-floor loft with a unique sunken game room that always sparks conversation among visitors.

Whether you’re in the market for a new home, need a little inspiration, or just enjoy seeing quality design and construction, plan to follow the Triangle Parade of Homes’ free, self-guided tour. You can wander through the showcase homes on October 11 through 13. All models are open from noon to 5 p.m.
