Here is a closer look at one of the four homes included in this year’s Parade of Homes:
The Aerius (Home No. 3)
Cascade West Development
The full description of The Aerius can be found athttp://clarkcountyparadeofhomes.com/homes/to-be-announced/….
According to the Parade of Homes website, aerius is a Latin word meaning aerial or partaking of the nature of air. The Aerius home is described as having “interwoven transitional, modern and contemporary elements that make personal solitude, friendly gatherings and extended family stays simultaneously conceivable.”
The builder describes the division of rooms and amenities as “thoughtful,” and that the division insures space for each member of the household to act independently or to come together as a whole and enjoy the common areas.
“The family that lives here values independence as well as inclusion. Functionality and freedom are the principles of this nest; from which a family can take flight,” the website states.
At first glance The Aerius home is described as seeming to disappear into its surroundings.
According to the website, this home echoes the popular American Craftsman style, which “dots the Pacific Northwest landscape.” The Aerius features 13-foot coffered ceilings, abundant natural lighting and an ornate glass chandelier. Other features of the home include a great room, master suite, den, four-bay garage and a guest bedroom with attached bathroom.
The corner kitchen is composed with elevated countertops. The kitchen also creates no spatial divide and easily transitions to the dining nook, complete with overhead coffered-beam ceiling.
The upstairs, which rests mainly on the western half of the home, is composed of a laundry room, two bedrooms and a large game room. Every space is large and easily accessible through a single hall.
This home was built by Cascade West Development, providing “fine homes throughout the Pacific Northwest with superior value and distinctive styling for more than 25 years.” The builders at Cascade West Development specialize in listening to their home buyers and customizing a floor plan to “put their needs and dreams into reality.”
