The 2009 BIA Parade of Homes at Tartan Ridge in Dublin starts today. Last night was the Preview Party... I've only gone to the preview party once over ten years ago and I was "the help."
I took this photo of the New England Homes Parade house earlier in the day Friday... if you look really, really close there is a big blue garbage can on the front porch, right next to the door of the New England Homes house. There are also a pile of shoes by the front door.
Actually it is a great front porch. They have it set up with lots of rocking chairs, very inviting.
Most of the other Parade homes at Tartan Ridge also had a garbage can out front or another obstacle to make it hard to photograph on Friday afternoon. Lots of last minute details to attend to. They were all busy preparing for opening night. When I get to go back to see the Parade next week there will be people everywhere...
A video about the New England Homes 2009 Parade home at Tartan Ridge featuring Doug Anette mentions the house has two master suites plus a large bonus room over the garage with a full bath.
The New England Homes entry is sold. I believe their 2006 Parade of Homes entry which won the People's Choice award was sold before that parade of homes, but New England Homes sold a lot of homes because of their exposure at the BIA Parade of Homes.The New England Homes parade entr was priced just under $900,000. A number of the homes in the 2009 BIA Parade of Homes at Tartan Ridge are still available.
Anette mentions the pool at the end of the video. It turned out very nice, very appealing on a hot July afternoon.
Tartan Ridge is in the Dublin School District. Dublin is a suburb of Columbus Ohio, the Tartan Ridge neighborhood is in Union County.
