Sophisticated Custom Home Design on Parade

The 2015 Spring Parade of Homes offers an incredible opportunity to visit new homes in communities throughout the Twin Cities. It’s easy to see the layout and floor plan of a home, but it takes a sharp eye to notice the subtle design details that give a home character and personality. When you visit our Parade of Homes models, we hope you’ll notice the details that add value and style to our homes.

Craftsman front wood door Gonyea Homes and Remodeling

Parade of Homes Model #400 in Maple Grove, MN is as attractive on the outside as it is on the inside. Located in Cedarcrest at 17291 69th Ave North, this 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom home features a mix of traditional architectural elements including an elegant arch over the front entry and front porch columns wrapped in stone. Subtle details like windows on the garage doors and the craftsman style door with shelf detail, make this home stand out from others in its class.

Copper and bronze lighting in dining and office

Priced at $719,900 this home hits a sweet spot of livability, durability, spaciousness, and sophisticated design. Traditional, classic elements are accented with rustic touches, like the barn doors for the home office, and the six light chandelier in dark bronze.

Open floorplan with custom design by Gonyea Homes and Remodeling

The open, efficient floorplan is perfect for modern living and the custom white cabinets will never go out of style.

Under cabinet lights custom design on the Parade of Homes

In the kitchen, harmonious variations in color and texture are the result of mixing bead board, stainless steel, bronze hardware, granite and porcelain tile. Under cabinet lighting reveals the subtle color variations in the stone-inspired backsplash. The tile has 21% recycled content and no VOC.

Undermount Island Kitchen Sink Gonyea Homes and Remodeling

The center island features an extra-deep, stainless steel sink with sound deadening system and gooseneck Moen faucet. Perfect for washing oversized cutting boards or gigantic soup pots.

Great room with custom mantel on the Parade of Homes

The fireplace and multi-stone hearth is wrapped in Savannah Ledgestone and topped with custom mantle in knotty alder. Above, the coffee colored, beadboard panel with crown moulding, creates a focal point for artwork or decorative objects.

Ceiling details and faux wood beams on the Parade of Homes

Look up. Instead of the usual flat ceiling and square corners, you’ll see distressed faux wood beams and graceful arches. Ceiling speakers are located in the great room, kitchen, master bedroom and of course the family room for surround sound.

Look down. And you find beautiful hardwood floors, high quality carpeting and elegant tile selections. Environmentally-friendly wood flooring from Real Wood Floors combines sandable hardwood with the stability of an engineered floor. Look very carefully and notice the “feet” at the base of the island.
