Lakeland new homesThis past weekend, October 19th and 20th, marked the beginning of Polk County’s Fall Parade of Homes.  Parade judges visited the entries the day before the Parade began to rank the homes in a variety of categories.  Upon entering the Highland Homes Willow model home at Hartford Estates, the judges were so impressed by the well-designed layout that they honored the home on the spot with a Special Feature Award for the floor plan. The accolades did not end there and after tallying up votes from the judges, the Willow took home three awards total: Best Exterior, Best Floor Plan and Best Master Bath in the $184,267 to $225,000 category.

Parade of Homes judges visit the home entries and give them a score from one to ten on variety of aspects including quality and features, specific room design, and overall quality.  Awards are then given for each judged aspect as well as for the overall highest score.  The Willow was judged against two other homes in the same price point and we are pleased the judges recognized the overall quality and design.  It is certainly no secret to buyers; Highland Homes currently has five Willows under or about to begin construction.

Featuring 2,536 square feet of living space, the spacious Willow model home at Hartford Estates provides buyers with a firsthand look at the quality design of our Central Florida new homes. The well-designed interior is perfect for entertaining or everyday life with an open layout between the kitchen, breakfast nook, family room, living room and dining room. The master suite provides a relaxing retreat with a beautiful tray ceiling and access to the lanai, and a luxury bathroom with dual vanities, garden tub and tiled shower, as well as linen closet and large walk-in closet. Additional highlights of this five bedroom and three bathroom home include a three-car garage, elegant double-door front entry, spacious covered lanai and stylish exterior elevations to choose from.
