Briar Chapel Featured in 2010 Parade of Homes

Now in its 27th year, the 2010 Parade of Homes showcases 42 new homes in our area and provides the chance for visitors to see the latest designs and technology trends. This free, self-guided tour is on October 2-3, 8-10, 15-17 from Noon to 5pm.

This year, Briar Chapel has five entries in the Parade:

26 Serenity Hill Circle: 2236 sqft / $324,210
1149 Great Ridge Parkway: 1867 sqft / $324,325
1243 Great Ridge Parkway: 2247 sqft / $418,411
50 Windy Knoll Circle: 2759 sqft / $425,000
208 Windy Knoll Circle: 2660 sqft / $425,900

Builders are putting a wide range of new technology on display this year, from the latest insulation applications to advanced home automation systems. This, of course, is in addition to the other green-building features that all builders must adhere to in Briar Chapel.

This year's event also enables builders to enjoy some friendly competition, as each home on the Parade is judged by a panel of industry representatives from other markets in our region. These judges examine the design, quality, and creativity that each entry demonstrates, resulting in a numerical grade for each house. Awards are given to homes that achieve the highest scores in each price category.

If you would like a guided tour of these homes, please contact Peter Winkler. I will be more than happy to point out the various green features that are available in these homes, as well as show you the amenities that residents enjoy throughout Briar Chapel.
