The Fall Parade of Homes kicks off Sept. 24, and builders across the metro have been busy preparing their homes for the large crowds expected during the two-week tour.
“Our homebuilders are proud to showcase 12 homes across six of our master-planned communities,” explained Jenni Mann, director of residential marketing for Hunt Midwest Residential. “Most homes are new to the Parade and have professional decor that represents the latest trends in paint colors, finishes and floor plan design.”
Here’s a sneak peek at the communities and homes that will be featured during the Parade:
▪ The rural landscape surrounding Running Horse provides for beautiful tree-top views and an escape from the hustle and bustle of nearby city life. Visitors can tour the popular New Coventry four-bedroom reverse plan by Ernst Brothers Home Construction (No. 205) at 16050 NW 123rd St.
