2015 Parade of Homes Features 11 Green-Certified Homes in Briar Chapel

Now in its 32nd year, the 2015 Parade of Homes in Durham, Orange & Chatham Counties will be held over three weekends in October: October 3-4, 9-11, and 16-18, 2015 from Noon-5pm each day.

This is a free, self-guided tour showcasing the latest designs and technology trends being used today. Of the 56 homes on Parade this year, Briar Chapel has the following 11 entries:

  • C5: 1475 Briar Chapel Pkwy by Homes By Dickerson - $697,479

  • C14: 79 Old Piedmont Circle by Homes By Dickerson - $384,900
  • C15: 638 Granite Mill Blvd by Garman Homes - $272,170

This exciting event 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.

Parade Homes are highly sought-after showcase homes, due to the "extras" builders include in them in an attempt to win gold. Likewise, winning Parade homes tend to attract extra attention when it comes time for resale.

If you would like to preview these homes before any of them are sold prior to the Parade, please contact Jen Winkler at 919-593-3662. She will be more than happy to point out the various green features in these homes, as well as show you the amenities that residents enjoy throughout Briar Chapel.
