This weekend was the 2nd and final weekend of the Tallahassee Builders Association's Parade of Homes. Local builders and craftsmen showcased their work with exciting new trends in home design, décor and construction all across Tallahassee and surrounding counties. It was a great opportunity to become familiar with neighborhoods and lifestyles for those looking to buy, build, or just get ideas.
I spent Saturday and Sunday from 1-6 at one of the million dollar properties on the Tallahassee Parade of Homes in Southwood, a lovely subdivision in the Southeast quadrant of Tallahassee. People came in droves to 2565 Twain Drive, built by William Faulkner.
I was the greeter, stationed at the front door, so I got to see everyone coming and going. Many came in the front door with an eager smile and left with a dreamy expression. It was fun to ask them what feature or room they liked the most and there was quite a variety of answers. I guess that's not surprising, considering the vast amenities and size of the home.
This is a "smart" home and has an awesome number of technical features to amaze and delight. While I appreciate technology and enjoy the latest conveniences, I tend to focus more on ambience. My favorite room is the kitchen. It has all the ultra-cool features you'd expect and it is warm, welcoming, and truly the heart of this home. You have to see it in person to fully appreciate it.
Even though it was exhausting, it was a lot of fun and I'm ready to do it again next year.
If you know of anyone who's thinking about buying or selling a home in Tallahassee, I'll be happy to give them the information and guidance they need to make a smart move.
